    most people use stomach flu as a euphemism for food poisoning! If its food poisoning then its not contagious!if it really is the flu then yes, the flu is contagious! it usually takes about 2 weeks for it show up once youve been exposed to it! (so if you get sick right away, you were exposed to it about 2 weeks ago) your chances of getting it are greater if she sneezed or coughed on you or if you shared eating or drinking utensils or if she coughed or sneezed in her hands and then touched you or handled something that you then later handled (faucets, door handles, telephone, pen, pencil, etc)you prevent the flu by getting a flu shot but the flu shot is no good if youve been exposed to the flu already or if the flu virus you were exposed to was a different flu virus than the one you were vaccinated with!Wash your hands w/ plain soap and hot water (not scalding, about the temp youd use in your bath or shower) on a regular basis (after using the bathroom, after handling things in public—like, shopping carts, shopping baskets, faucets in the bathroom), after handling things sick people handled! Wash your hands before preparing food and before eating!you dont need antibacterial soap—regular soap is fine! (antibiotics dont kill viruses and you dont need to contribute to the problem of drug resistant bacteria by using antibacterial products when they arent really needed!)there is nothing you can eat to prevent the flu! Its mostly staying clean and not breathing in or ingesting the virus! Once youve been exposed to the virus, there is nothing you can do to prevent getting the illness! it just has to run its course!
