cough bug - flu

I still find it staggering that it is the year 2011 and we still not can not prevent a flu or common cold virus. Sure, vaccines at one end exist and a vast arrange of over the counter medicine's at the other, even self help breathing or yoga are suggested to keep the symptoms at bay. I get the feeling a lot of this energy is being wasted or thinking sinister, put in place to keep the sales going for the healthcare-pharmaceuticals industry. While the search for a magic potion has merit I feel the answers will found in data rather than in a chemistry kit. What data? Every bit we have captured and have under control of the individual, if those individual share that information to enhance their collective intelligence then those lost days of poor health will be behind us, for all.
