The H1N1 virus, also known as “swine flu,” has certainly been a media hot topic in recent months. Heidi and Spencer Pratt even capitalized on the viral spotlight by donning surgical masks during their honeymoon in Mexico earlier this year. So why is this flu such a big deal and how is it different from the flu that causes headaches, literally, every winter? ETHOS dug up the inside information from experts to give you the straight scoop from those in the know (by the way, the Speidi mask in public isn’t going to do a whole lot for you).
