    • your chances of getting sick
    • simple precautions you can take
    • which vaccinations and shots are worthwhile
    • how to avoid catching infections in the hospital
    • special precautions to take if you are pregnant
    • how to ward off infections even if you have chronic health problems or are HIV positive
    • how to keep well while traveling
    • what to eat-and not eat-on the road
    • symptoms that signal trouble
    • what illnesses you can get from bug bites and animals
    • how to prevent sexually transmitted diseases
