I just heard on nightly news that for swine flu you can wet a pair of cotton socks, wring them out and wear them under dry wool socks to bed. But they did not say what that helped? Anyone know?

Socks, wet or dry, do not stop viruses from entering your nasal passages and/or respiratory system, which is how the flu enters your body. The socks are probably an "old wives tale". By the way, gargling with salt water and using salt water in your nose also doesn't work to get rid of the any flu symptoms. An H1N1 vaccine is the only way to keep the swine flu away, and seasonal flu vaccine works on strains of flu that the CDC feels will be a problem this year. Sometimes they are right, sometimes they are wrong. We could still have an outbreak of flu this year, EVEN IF YOU GET ALL YOUR FLU SHOTS. No wet pair of socks outweighs science.
