Listen: Flu: People with obesity may be contagious for a longer time
"Above, join us at the top. Of the hour break it is the kickoff hour and we thank you for being with us here. On the Rick and Bubba show Back to school time is real for everybody and I see here that. Ten states thrilled to me, are about to have their tax free weekend began this is where all the moms Out do do all the shopping Well, they are they don't realize rose just a little bit. To make up the difference We got Arkansas Florida. Our, Missouri New. Mexico how Oklahoma South Carolina Virginia Wisconsin I'll have in tax free weekend But. Hey not every, county will participate in each state so. You got to watch it and the gotta watch it. Some, counties got we're not giving our tax money up I don't care. If you start in, school or, not yeah this one here and I. Promise you we're not doing this Bubba, this is not an. You know above a joke or anything like. That I know, they'll, think we're doing that, but it's, really not, it's, just. An interesting study on obese people Interesting why they even had. This study yeah it is and and, how they even tried. To start it but they sense to me Me Okay He does, actually, yeah obese people are more contagious than slim people when they have the. Flu I mean just really just think about it it actually makes sense Flu victims, victims could be contagious for more. Days if the fat As they. Shed the, virus for longer obese people risks reading flew to family for instance strangers, up to twice as long as those of normal. Weight steadiest fan About this, so flu season look out so the study was on eighteen hundred people Over three flu, season's led by the university of Michigan they found obese adults with flu since Flint flu symptoms. Shed, influenza, a virus for forty two percent longer than those that were not obese, now, look they already knew that obese people have a greater danger of flu. Complications. They, but nobody. Had measured whether they can. Be infectious for longer until now Gotcha yeah About that mass picture to go the story. Yeah. Yeah We. We got obese. We don't have to have a picture we got it it says here Dr Gordon from the university of Michigan school of public health said that this is the first. Evidence that obese might impact more than just disease severity I directly impact transmission. As, well So and again this is not I promise you we didn't just print this for any other reason but the headline I didn't think I would read something like that, but obese people are more contagious than slim. People when it comes to the. Flute and, for some reason? The findings were taken from adults and children across. Three hundred twenty households in Nicaragua right. Over the twenty. Fifteen through twenty seventeen flu season's if I'm sitting across from professor Gordon has got his coffee in his hand he's talking to me about this I say you know. What that doesn't surprise me professor You're having is she If one of them, wonder if the professor what would? They way That's, a real good shape One of those older at, individuals that really another reason. They're gonna tank obese people The heritage is get away get away flus I've never, really even thought about jobs Dubs obese that would be more contagious, didn't, even, interim didn't enter my mind either but but after hearing it out think okay. Well actually takes longer because, there's more of. Them takes longer to get it out So there. I mean it kinda does. Make sense I'm, not picking on anybody like, you, said we didn't bring this up, for, Bubba, we brought it up because it's flu season we're getting ready for it right This where we picked the wrong That was word I'm looking for Get it yeah. We got thrown. Vaccine every, year I've. Never never. They said nailed. It got it Flu allergy and ask. The doctor yesterday. And their, signs were. Already up And I just thought why why would I take, it y'all can't get it right You know what I mean Got it perfect never never, heard that all the. Shots yoga waste one there You're wrong strand it's better, than nothing wrong strain Give. You the better than nothing yeah Yeah but see this is what you got to be careful because you don't want the government targeting people because of their weight and what's going to happen. Is They're going to say. Hey, if, your. BMI is, not where it needs to be you're going to be a target for flu prevention or some other kind of bread and flew him yeah yeah No I don't know this is it's. An interesting. Study here and it looks like the maze the to your study as you. Said over three hundred households. And in, Nicaragua and over eighteen hundred people over three flu swab in London noses there so just on average is just takes them longer to, get, rid, of. It, so they're just. Contagious longer I mean they have it more just means it takes longer to, get to get rid, of, the sniffles what you would you allergic day yesterday everything, everything everything yeah trees grass everything and I don't know if you've ever been to these tests these. Prick. Test When they go in and they test you I'm glad My my, boys have but. I haven't they put these trays on. Your bed So. They put these trays on your back that have like four pricks per tray and I think I. Got eight or nine, trays and my back where. They a lot, of effort and here's the thing. The lady, Marlena, love you but my goodness she didn't give, me any head. She's like ham you take shirt off And she said yeah Yeah oh yeah it's like. The pricks her, life I'm showing you. My phone so like this would be a tray there's four pricks and. You just take. It. And, go. In the back take another boom They just do rows. Of them now Was it. Was Tortured Van Gogh their own free will every after a picture of my allergy, sheet I'll show you on the break. Gracious the doctor basically said, he he has not seen anybody with that many allergies Not address this kind, of thing in three weeks made it this long Yeah Made it this, long everything.
