Hi Chris
   
I always try to be near a radio on Fridays at 09h30 so that I can hear you on Redi's show in South Africa.  I sent in a question but I now understand there is rather a long waiting list!

Are you able to answer my question :
   
How can I minimize the chance of picking up a bad bug when flying.  I often get sick after a long flight - everyone says it is the air-conditioning in planes - so how the heck does one minimize the chance of getting ill?
   
I love your programme and have now logged onto www.thenakedscientists.com and am listening to various podcasts.
   
I look forward to hearing from you,

Regards
