[Discovered!] Deadly New Flu Risk for Seniors
We’re all scared of getting the flu.
And with good reason. The high fever, runny nose, and brutal body aches are enough to make you miserable.
But as we get older the flu isn’t just uncomfortable… it’s downright DEADLY.
And new research shows that the risks for seniors are even more dangerous than we’ve ever known.
Luckily, there are ways you can protect yourself and your loved ones.
Here’s what you need to know…
Terrifying new research from Columbia University has revealed that contracting flu increases your risk of suffering a stroke.
Yes, you read that correctly: the flu can give you a stroke.
For the research, the scientists analyzed data from 30,912 patients who suffered an ischemic stroke between 2012 and 2014.
They focused on the participants’ health in the weeks before the stroke occurred. And the pattern they uncovered is truly disturbing…
In the 15 days after coming down with the flu, your risk of suffering a stroke increases by 40 percent!
But that’s not all…
Follow-up research determined that patients with neck artery tears were more likely to suffer these dangerous incidents within 30 days of contracting the flu.
Though the risk decreases over time, the threat remains for up to one year.
And the pattern was the same regardless of where each patient lived, their gender, race, and socioeconomic background.
The researchers suspect that this dramatic increase for both a stroke and a neck artery tear is a result of flu-related inflammation.
So, what can you do to protect yourself and your loved ones?
Well, we all know that annual flu shots are not only USELESS but incredible DANGEROUS – especially for seniors.
Instead, experts recommend:
- Taking probiotics, which have been shown to slash your flu risk in HALF.
- Adding immune-boosting zinc and vitamin C to your daily routine.
- Supplementing with selenium to boost your immune system’s protective cells by 82 percent.
And, of course, wash your hands regularly and avoid sharing germs – not just during flu season but all year round!
