    Has anyone came down with that pig virus yet.

    Beside Washington, How many people out their feel a little sick right now. I had the pig flu last year and it almost killed me. This is the second year for this virus to be brewing on the east side of Mexico City. By next flu season it could really get ugly out there. ADM look undervalued these days.

    • Cornprophet: There are all of 40 cases in CA as of today. We have 37 millions living here and borders as you sure as heck know on Mexico.

      I would hope on the other side of the coin this is a warnig shot across the bow and the strain of vaccine for the next flu season will be swine flu.

      I have taken a shot every year since they have been available except one year when it was put together on shoe string evidence and some persons died from the vaccine.

      Hope all is well with yourself.

      • It would seem that thus far this flu is not as lethal as one might expect. while not good to contract it might not spread as easily or be as damaging as some flu can be. I could be wrong but it would seem a virus that starts off in an animal population should have a difficult time making the jump to humans. I think a far greater risk are virus and bacteria that start up in the human population directly with genetics taylor made to humans. I also think that the next major pandemic/epidemic will be something like anti-biotic resistant bacteria like Tuberculosis (TB) that incubates up in the hiv population and then breaks out the the general population. It would make sense that hiv infected people will catch TB more easily, not only because or weakened imune system, but due to life style. In addition life style in many of the hiv population is such that they will not seek treatment or follow treatment to the necessary conclusion and therefore allow anti biotic resistant strains to grow up. It would seem that flu's spike and decline, but a disease like TB stays on long term. I think i read that TB is now a major killer/conclusion for hiv/aids people. Hopefully this swine flu turns out to be mild and short lived. hope you all keep well.
