Like yuck!  Like, who wants the yucky Norovirus?

But then again, who wants to take yucky medicine?  I've reached an age where I don't like taking pills, especially those horse-pill sized antibiotics.  They will always get stuck at the back of my throat, causing me to hack and gag till the things comes back into my mouth and dissolves.  There are few things in this world that taste worse, IMO.  And liquid medicines?  Not much better.  They say they can put flavorings in, but that's a waste.  Who wants a cherry-flavored...turd.  They still taste awful.

Scientists think they've found a good way to keep you from getting NOROVIRUS . . . which is that really contagious virus that keeps hitting cruise ships and causes awful vomiting and diarrhea.  One like myself wonders just what sort of concoction from the cauldrons of hell have they come up with for that?  How awful will that taste?  How difficult will that be to swallow?  HMMMMM?

There's been a lot of talk about NOROVIRUS lately . . . at least since entire cruise ships full of people started getting infected with it.  If you don't know, norovirus is a VERY contagious disease that can cause horrible vomiting and diarrhea.

So here's some good news:  Scientists at the University of Arizona think they've found a way to help prevent norovirus from infecting you.  And it sounds like just about the EASIEST medical advice to follow EVER.


The team found that a chemical in oregano oil called carvacrol can help prevent norovirus from spreading.  Oregano oil is used to give pizza its flavor and smell.

So before you go on a cruise or go back to life in the college dorm, eat pizza.  Lots and lots of pizza.  I think you can handle that.

And of course, today is Valentines Day, so I leave you with this.  Kisses.
