When you’re sick, do you go to the doctor? What about when you’re poor and the nearest doctor is several hours away? A study by Dr Fatimah S. Dawood of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) hints that the 2009/2010 H1N1 swine flu pandemic might have been responsible for over a quarter of a million human deaths worldwide. To that happy news, a h5n1 (bird flu) paper finally published last week outlines a great (natural) method to make the strain much more virulent and contagious. Basically, we just have to sit back and wait! “The papers published this week and last month show that it would take about four or five genetic changes for H5N1 to mutate into a form that might trigger a pandemic in humans, and that some of these mutations have already occurred in nature.” Happy reading, and remember to elect representatives who take your health seriously.
