The flu is the number one reason that people take off work during the fall and winter months. Although cold and flu season is already here, it’s not too late to take preventative measures. Each year, up to 63 million Americans come down with the flu, 200,000 Americans are hospitalized with the flu, and 3,000 Americans die from the flu. Each year, up to 111 million workdays are lost because of the flu. We spoke with Janet Little, nutritionist for Sprouts Farmers Market about how to avoid getting sick.
