After reading The Macdonald's post "Stubb's tobacco smoke might have operated as a sort of disinfecting agent." I was wondering how pipe smokers would fare during the flu season.

If you get the flu this season, post a note we can find out and you might get letters of sympathy.

If there are any statisticians, we could conduct an informal epidemiology study. According to Wikipedia, epidemiology is"the study of factors affecting the health and illness of populations.... It is highly regarded in evidence-based medicine for identifying risk factors for disease" For example, is there any correlation between the number of bowls smoked in a day an the incidence of flu?

I currently do not have the flu, and I am going to get every flu shot they offer.

I get one as a County employee. But it's just for regular influenza, not H1N1.
