How to prevent illness

by Alexis Huffman

Colds, flus, allergies, all of these can be helped by keeping yourself clean and washing your hands after using the restroom, handling animals, dealing with animals, and handling dirt.
Sanitize your hands after blowing your nose or coughing. Wear the appropriate clothing when going outside. Eat the right kinds of food to keep your body’s immune system up.
All in all take care of yourself so that you don’t have to end up missing school, falling behind on homework, getting others in your family sick, and having to lay in bed all day taking nasty medicine to get better.
Take care of yourselves, people.
