Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
With more than 48,000 cases of whooping cough reported in 2012, the nation marked its worst year for the disease in nearly 60 years. Because it can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening complications, especially in infants and young children, everyone needs to know how to protect their health and how to prevent whooping cough from spreading. Public health professionals have their hands full when it comes to making sure the public is aware of the dangers of this contagious disease. Journeyworks Publishing has just released an easy-to-understand overview called “Whooping Cough: 9 Things Everyone Should Know” designed to help education and prevention efforts.

Tuberculosis, or TB, is another contagious respiratory disease. TB is a serious infection, and one that requires treatment. TB is dangerous for everyone, but it is especially serious for those with weakened immune systems. In their new pamphlet, “TB: 8 Things Everyone Should Know,” Journeyworks Publishing provides a list of symptoms, as well as information on the TB test and who should consider getting tested.
Flu is more common than either whooping cough or TB. During flu season, typically October through March, it can become widespread. Making sure that people get a flu vaccine every year is one of the most effective ways to keep flu from spreading. The next best way is to encourage folks to practice consistent hand washing. With titles such as “Flu Facts: What Everyone Needs to Know” and “Hand Washing to Avoid Colds, Flu and Other Infections” public health professionals will find Journeyworks’ brochures to be valuable tools, especially now that we are at the height of flu season. In short, they are a great way to promote preventive measures like hand washing, vaccinations and more.
