That's such B.S. I read the report and it's the same ol' crap. Bird flu was hype and so is this. The CDC indicated that bacteria is getting more resistant to antibiotics (which I don't take). Fat Americans want to take pills and make their problems go away - diabetes, cancer, obesity, heart disesase, etc. Only the fat lard-asses who don't work out and eat healthy need to be afraid. If you are in shape, you stand a much better chance to resist health issues - proven time and time again. Avoiding the gym to avoid germs is useless. Go live in a bubble. Germs are going to find your fat azz. Get to the gym, eat better and LOSE 20-50 lbs. The healthy lifestyle is in and here to stay. Every health magazine and medical report stresses to eat healthy and get more exercise. I travel the world and only americans are fat. Time for a wake up call, folks. If you want to be a slug and eat fast food and sit in front of the TV, go for it. I will see you at the pool or beach and I will be laughing at your sick & fat azz b/c you are too lazy to do anything about it. Look at the Chinese, the Koreans, the Brazlians, the Russians - they are healthy and slim. Why? Diet AND exercise. It's time for America to wake-up and prioritize fitness & a healthy lifestyle.
