Fever is your friend

Treat a fever – spread the flu! Fever-reducing medication can cause more harm than good. Fever-reducing drugs actually may lead to tens of thousands more influenza cases, and more than a thousand deaths each year across. When people take drugs including ibuprofen, acetaminophen and acetylsalicylic acid to reduce their fevers, they delay recovery and they falsely feel better when in reality they are not better. A good, solid fever lowers the amount of virus load in the body and will you get over the flu quicker – reducing the chance of transmitting flu to others. A McMaster University study recently shows that taking drugs for flu actually increases transmission of flu virus to others, and sick people can give off more of the virus when the fever has been artificially reduced.
