Got the flu again? Your toothbrush could be to blame!

By | December 12, 2011

I read this piece of interesting information on Cosmopolitan magazine yesterday and thought I should share it with you. Apparently if you have the flu and you brush your teeth with your toothbrush there is a good chance that the bug lingers on your toothbrush and could possibly come back to reinfect you. ‘So its better to throw out your toothbrush and get a new one as soon as you are cured to make sure you don’t get infected again!

Now this might explain why whenever I get the flu it would disappear for a few days then repeatedly comes back again and again and again for a month or two! I never threw my toothbrush away! Now that I am supposedly on my long awaited annual vacation yet I am suffering from such a bad case of the flu I can’t lift my head off my pillow, I am adament on throwing away my toothbrush as soon as I feel better just to make sure I don’t get it again.

Now why didn’t any of the doctors or dentists ever share this information with us before? Oh well Cosmo, walaw inah its my least favorite magazine out there, ma ga9arat o shared this information with its readers o I am sharing it with you. You’ve been warned, change the bloody toothbrush.
