Gargling with salt water

As influenza A(H1N1) is spreading to 176 countries in the world, people are scared of the infectious disease. I have received many e-emails telling me how to prevent getting sore-throat, a sign of infection. One of the methods will be using warm salt solution for gargling to kill and wash down the virus to the stomach where this virus cannot survive.

I have been using salt water whenever I have sore-throat and it works most of the time. Sometimes the sore gets more serious first and it goes off the next day even though I gargle again because I know it is going to work.
