Besides cold and an exacerbation of chronic diseases which are frequent in the cold fall lead to a nervous breakdown, including hypothalamic department which regulates a tone of vessels and supports the constant environment in an organism.

According to medical statistics, the late fall as sad to recognize it, becomes time of a flu epidemic and a SARS.

As during pregnancy use of medicines is sharply limited to

because negative impact of preparations on a fruit is noted, the special attention should be paid to prevention - increase of protective forces of an organism.


From folk remedies in it to future mothers need garlic: 2 - 3 cloves should be eaten daily for prevention, and the probability of a disease of flu and colds will decrease. Also oil infusion of garlic with onions which will require 100 g of vegetable oil, 3 - 4 garlic gloves, 0,25 bulbs will help.

All is a package of measures will help to strengthen immunity, but does not give guarantees.


Around the world for a long time by the main method of prevention of a set of infectious diseases including flu, active immunization - vaccination is. What is it? in the course of vaccination enter a particle of the weakened or killed infecting agent into an organism. The virus which is contained in a vaccine cannot cause a disease, but can stimulate an organism to development of antibodies. Therefore when the “wild“ strain of a virus gets to an organism, time is not necessary for development of antibodies - they already are after vaccination. Antibodies contact a virus and, thus, prevent infection of a cage and reproduction of a virus. Thanks to it the disease is warned till its beginning. Thus, vaccination imitates a viral infection (without disease) to provoke immune system of an organism for fight against an infection.

One of the central questions - about a possibility of vaccination against flu during pregnancy.

At first about consequences which were the cause for new researches and developments about vaccination during pregnancy. At pregnant women the risk of complications after flu, especially such as premature interruption of pregnancy and still birth sharply increases. The American advisory committee concerning vaccination (ACIP) recommends vaccination against flu of pregnant women who at the time of the beginning of a season of flu are on 14 - y (or more) to week of pregnancy. Vaccination after 14 - y is explained weeks by the fact that in the first trimester there is a risk of spontaneous interruption of pregnancy. Pregnant women who irrespective of pregnancy get to risk group on flu (those who work in big collectives, in child care facilities, health workers), have to be provaktsinirovana before epidemic irrespective of pregnancy term.


As apply vaccines of the last generation now, they have no negative consequences for a fruit. The flu vaccine is not dangerous to mothers nursing. Moreover, the antibodies developed by mother in response to introduction of a vaccine get through breast milk and create additional protection for the child.


In our country did not develop recommendations about vaccination of pregnant women. It is the best of all to do a flu inoculation in the fall, since September to the middle of November beforehand to create immunity; on it leaves two - four weeks. To be fair It should be noted that the inoculation contains only one subtype of flu A, B, etc. while the activator of the approaching epidemic is predictable only partly.

Consultation with the doctor before vaccination for pregnant women is obligatory for

! Autumn efforts

For the present in shops and in the markets vegetable and fruit abundance did not end with p with

, it is possible to try to keep it for long winter in the frozen look. Freezing remains in the best way of long storage of many vegetables and fruits as thus their taste, color, texture, nutritional value remains. Usability, and also saving of time for preparation of a product for freezing does not come within miles of conservation and drying therefore the question of monetary expenses which are demanded by freezing pales into insignificance. What technology of this process?

the Basic rule at the choice of vegetables for freezing consists that it is only possible to freeze what is used in a boiled or stewed look: beet, beet tops of vegetable, cauliflower, broccoli, sockets of Brussels sprout, peas, carrots, kohlrabi, rhubarb, pumpkin, sweet corn, spinach. Those vegetables which are usually eaten fresh for example a celery, cucumbers, salad, onions and a garden radish, are suitable for freezing, especially less if to freeze each look separately, but not in mix with other vegetables. Mediocre quality is gained after freezing by cabbage and pepper. Well almost all fruits, and especially berries remain as a result of freezing.

How to keep vitamins?

in the course of storage the frozen vegetables and fruit lose part of nutritional value, and, first of all, it concerns vitamins (among them the most unstable is vitamin C), however there are ways allowing to reduce considerably losses.

Prepare products for freezing right after harvesting. Before freezing it is possible to take them in the refrigerator no more than one days at a temperature of 4 - 5 ° With or below.

For the maximum preservation of nutritiousness vegetables before freezing needs to be blanched, and it is better to do it on couple, but not in boiled water. Why scalding is necessary? In fresh-gathered vegetables enzymes are very active: they quickly destroy vitamin C and turn sugar into starch. Low temperature of a deep freeze slows down their activity, but does not stop it. Only high temperature which is provided by scalding can stop this process.

Try that process of scalding and the subsequent cooling of products before freezing continued not for long, the less time a product adjoins to oxygen of air and, therefore, is exposed to oxidation, the less it loses nutrients.

the Majority of vegetables and fruit remains in a deep freeze within 8 - 12 months. Considering that after scalding and freezing of fabric of vegetables become softer, duration of their culinary processing has to be twice or three times well, than for fresh.

Containers for freezing of products

as containers for freezing except traditional packages can use cardboard boxes from - under milk. The released boxes need be not to thrown out, and pure to store till a preparation season. Fill a box with the vegetables prepared for freezing and bend “comb“ so that the top of a box became flat. Enshrine it in such provision by an adhesive tape.


Before placing the filled containers in a deep freeze, it is necessary to write on them the name of products and date of freezing. It will help you to find the necessary vegetables or berries quickly.

Defrosting of vegetables and fruit

Freezing, unlike hot conservation, will not sterilize products. In spite of the fact that during scalding many microorganisms perish, some of them, especially a mold, remain safe though low temperature slows down their growth and reduces activity. When the product is taken out from the refrigerator, its temperature increases, and the microorganisms which are at rest begin to breed. Even during thawing the product can deteriorate, and the temperature when defrosting is higher, the harmful microorganisms develop quicker. From this it follows that microbic population increases the number more slowly if defrosting happens at a temperature below, than room, for example in the refrigerator.
