1: History/Orgin: The first convincing influenza pandemic was in 1580. It spread from Russia to Europe and Africa. | http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/bf/StateLibQld_1_104332_Women_wearing_surgical_masks_during_the_influenza_epidemic%2C_Brisbane%2C_1919.jpg | http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d3/StateLibQld_1_110768_Influenza_quarantine_camp_set_up_at_Wallangarra%2C_1919.jpg

2: Description, Cause, and Symptoms of Flu | The flu virus has a spherical shape. It is spread through the air by coughing and sneezing from person to person. The flu can also be spread by touching contaminated objects.It is very similar to the common cold, but it is more severe. A few days after being exposed, the symptoms will kick in. They can be fever, headache, tiredness, runny nose, cough, diarrhea, and other similar things. If the flu is not treated right away, it can be very severe, and possibly deadly. | http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/ea/H1N1_navbox.jpg

3: Treatment For Flu | The best way to prevent the flu is to be vaccinated every year. The flu vaccine is made from three different viruses based on the forecast of the upcoming season. The flu can also be treated by antiviral medications. If someone gets the swine flu once, the next time they get it, it will not be as bad. But the flu changes all the time, so the immune system will not be prepared for an attack. | http://www.free-press-release.com/members/members_pic/200905/img/1242906365.jpg

4: Interesting Facts About the Flu | Every year, the flu causes approximately 250,000-500,000 deaths. Flu pandemics however, can cause millions of deaths. Children are more likely to get the flu than adults. The flu is one of the most important infectious diseases because it kills so many people, and is capable of causing pandemics. The flu of 1918 caused 50-100 million deaths. 500 million people were exposed to the pandemic. The cause of influenza was first discovered in pigs by Richard Shope in 1931. | http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Swine_virus.svg
