Men's Nemesis, the Terrible Emesis Attacks!

A severe, highly contagious 'norovirus' is attacking men with severe emesis (vomiting) and diarrhea, according to Men's Health article, 'Attack of the Puking Virus.'

Coined "Norovirus" after a 1960s outbreak in Norwalk, Ohio, this terrible stomach virus may be broadly described as 'a virus that lives in the stomach and causes illnesses like gastroenteritis, food poisoning and stomach flu' within 24 hours of exposure.

The norovirus is easily spread, which is why, according to the Mayo Clinic, 'an estimated 23 million cases of norovirus occur in the United States each year.' Spreading quickly between people via contaminated surfaces, food, and water, it shut down entire hospital wings in New York, and Boston.

Eating healthy and getting adequate sleep can do much to increase immunity to infectious diseases. Men who worry they're not getting enough nutrition may do well to consider taking a supplement like Advanced Antioxidants, which supports the body's antioxidant processes (critical to optimal health). Here are some other tips men can take to avoid infection - and avoid infecting other men:

- Wash your hands throughly, including the backs of your hands and wrists using a soap with anti-bacterial properties, like MenScience's Daily Body Wash. (The Mayo Clinic suggests washing for 15-20 seconds with soap and warm water before closing off the faucet with a disposable towel.)

- Clean contaminated surfaces with a bleach solution immediately, scrubbing on all hard, non-porous surfaces.

- Take care not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth in public.

- Take off work! The virus is at its worst for for the first 1-3 days, but it's still highly contagious for 48 hours after symptoms subside.
