Bounce Beer Pong to Prevent Flu, School Says


College students should stop playing beer pong and sharing drink cups in order to prevent the spread of the H1N1 (swine) flu this fall, a New York school advises.

The Associated Press reported Oct. 13 that health officials at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) said that several H1N1 cases on campus have been traced to a group of students who shared drinks during a weekend that included drinking games.

The school has reported 21 cases of swine flu, with seven students placed in isolation while they recover from the illness.
