You can take a bunch of vitamins, get your flu shot, drink Emergen C and you will still get sick when it's 2 degrees outside.

Sickness is part of raising kids, being in an office environment and the seasons changing. One of the most common reasons we get sick is because of the spread of germs.

Healthcare professionals suggest that if you are sick you need to stay home so that you don't spread germs. But how many of us really do that?

I know several professions, like hair dressers, real estate agents, groceries, etc. that think it is extremely rude for consumers to be in their business's while being sick. If consumers get employees sick it creates a viscous cycle.
