The best resource I have found one swine flu is the article
Of all the Maps available to track Swine Flu this on is the best.. Swine Flu Map - Tracking the H1N1 virus
Google search engine trends might be able to track Swine Flu trends. Look at Google Flu Trends.
I purchased this book a while ago. It is an all inclusive book that gives great advice on How to Beat the Bird Flu by Truth Publishing. I figured allot of it applies to the Swine Flu

Individual Antiviral Herbs recomended by How to Beat the Bird Flu.
- St. John's Wort*
- Lemon Balm
- Green Tea*
- Grape fruit seed extract
- Olive leaves
- Cats Claw or Una de Gato*
*Astragalus, St. John's Wort, Green Tea, Cats Claw or Una de Gato Are all in bold because they have a double recomendation to be useful against the Swine Flu from both the HTBTBF book and the below listed article.
Based on the article posted below I have changed the recomendations of this book just a little bit. Listed below are my changes and why.
Sambucol is strongly recomended by the HTBTBF book. But according to the article listed below Elderberry juice is to be AVOIDED
because it increases productionof cytokines TNF-a and IL-6. ...Cytokines are compounds produced by the body s immune system that attack and remove foreign bodies. The problem is that when a foreign body is immune to certain cytokines, the body sees that its immune response is not working and tries even harder, which can lead to what is called a cytokine storm, where the body becomes flooded with these compounds and they eventually destroy the body itself.
Echinacea was removed from the recomended herbs because the article says below it should be AVOIDED also.
Increases production of cytokines TNF-aand IL-6. Although it is often used for normal flu, researchshows that it may increase the chance of cytokine storms forH5N1.
Spirulina is to be AVOIDED because it...
increases production of cytokine TNF-a.
Chocolate and Honey and Bananas are also foods that should be AVOIDED.
Dairy Products of course should always be AVOIDED when one has a cold or flu.
