This swine flu sweeping the earth at the moment is a bit confusing to say the least, I mean swine flu is normally passed onto humans through 'close contact' with pigs. Obviously not all the people infected up to now have been in close contact with pigs so maybe it's a new strain of the disease.
Whatever it is somebody in the pharmecutical business is going to get rich from it.

Mmmm? Can you catch it from being in contact with pork meat I wonder? ohmy.gif

Well it's not exactly sweeping through the Earth, not yet anyway

Hmm, I'm having second thoughts about those pork chops I have marinating for dinner tonight.

Edit: Oh shit, I had bacon for breakfast.
TwoFacedTanner
I thought this was called Swine Fu.

As in pig fighting or something. What a ripoff.

And if you can catch it by eating pork I'm safe, I don't eat pork.

lol, being a vegetarian or not eating Pork won't save you from anything. The reason this Virus is so "worrying" is because it can transmit from Human to Human, you know like the regular illnesses like colds etc..

I don't think there's any link made between swine flu and eating pig yet. It's at level 4 pandemic which means the flu can pass from person to person. Though the 2 cases in Scotland are recovering so it's not entirely deadly. Vaccines are being made but it'll take a few months for them to be tested, and a few more ontop of that to mass produce them.

Well thet's welcome news because today I've eaten pork sausages, bacon and shagged a pig.

For starters, I give you this link here to read and enjoy regarding the swine flu.

Secondly, I'd like to state that I firmly believe that this particular strain of the flu had to originate in a laboratory somewhere. If you read the above article, you'll see why. There is no way that this particular strain of swine flu could have just randomly appeared. Not possible. (Well, possible, but the probability is highly unlikely).

As far as pharmaceutical companies making money off of this - I don't think so. Not yet. There currently is no vaccination or cure for this strain, so there really is nothing to sell. Although, I will admit that health officials in Mexico are giving out vaccinations for the known strains of flu in the hopes that it works. But nothing has worked so far. And to make money off of the cure, they have to dump money into research to find a cure. And how many of us have heard in the news that they are working on it so far? I haven't.

Cuba also today announced that it is imposing a travel ban to and from Mexico until the current pandemic has ceased. So Cuba becomes the first country in the world to say "No, Senors - we don't want your vatos here, our vatos aren't going over there". I would be surprised that the US hasn't imposed a travel ban, except that I know the US would never ban travel to any country whatsoever, now would they (*cough**cuba**cough*)? rolleyes.gif

Well, the swine flu is now confirmed to be in Germany. This makes 8 countries that have officially declared at least one case of swine flu: The US, Mexico, Canada, New Zealand, Israel, Britain, Spain, and now Germany.

Read this on MSNBC.com

A Texas 23-month-old child is also now the first confirmed death of the swine flu in the US. So we have countless deaths in Mexico (I don't really believe the numbers they are giving us), and now 1 in the US.

Read this on MSNBC.com

@trathen: As corny as your post about "I Am Legend" sounds, it in all likelihood isn't that far off. The disease is on both sides of the world, in all kinds of populations and financial levels. And although this sounds like a conspiracy theory, I do believe that we are just one major accident at a laboratory away from having most of the world's population wiped out.

Yes it is, it is about as far off as the sun spontaneously exploding.

All the virus is, is a known animal diseases that normally infects pigs, chickens and other animals, it however spread to humans due to increased contact time with humans which will bring the inevitable mutation to pass to humans and the the further unlikely but inevitable event of being able to pass between humans. The reason there is no vaccine isn't so kind of conspiracy it is due to new epitopes being present on the cellular surface and therefore no present antigen or memory cells have been created so a secondary immune response can't occur and the cells aren't quick apoptosed.

Why would anyone bother to make a virus that infects pigs and chickens it is just a ridiculous assertion. Not to mention it being pointless, you could quite easily make it far more deadly using genetic engineering.

Where is your ridiculous conspiracy theory every winter when a new strain on the common cold turns up, this whole situation is so overrated it is unbelievable, it has yet to kill anyone who isn't classed as vulnerable in a developed country, chorea and malaria kill far more everyday.

You didn't read the article, nor do you know what the current strain of swine flu contains. From the article itself:

QUOTE
ē Human influenza
ē Bird Flu from North America
ē Swine flu from Europe
ē Swine flu from Asia

This is rather astonishing to realize, because for this to have been a natural combination of viral fragments, it means an infected bird from North America would have had to infect pigs in Europe, then be re-infected by those some pigs with an unlikely cross-species mutation that allowed the bird to carry it again, then that bird would have had to fly to Asia and infected pigs there, and those Asian pigs then mutated the virus once again (while preserving the European swine and bird flu elements) to become human transmittable, and then a human would have had to catch that virus from the Asian pigs -- in Mexico! -- and spread it to others. (This isn't the only explanation of how it could have happened, but it is one scenario that gives you an idea of the complexity of such a thing happening).
Explain to me, other than in the scenario above, how this particular strain of swine flu could have evolved without going through the above pattern AND without being created in the lab by human beings? I suppose you'll say some kid from mexico went to a zoo somewhere that just happened to have a sick bird from North America, a sick pig from Europe, and a sick pig from Asia, AND that the zoo didn't have them in quarantine due to their illnesses, AND the kid actually came into contact with all of them?

This is an example of what I said at the beginning of this post. You start by talking about the healthcare available in Mexico, along with the amount of people living in poverty/squalor, and this sounds like a reasonable argument. And then you come out with an AIDS-related thought that something else just made them weaker so the swine flu would kill them. According to the news stories I've read (which doesn't make them true, only what I've read) 90%+ of the people who have died in Mexico from this disease were healthy, normal people who exhibited no signs of any disease prior to contracting the swine flu.

Eh...no it isn't, hence it infects pigs, not to mention to have virulence factors that work in both is rare hence you think this is some crazy conspiracy because it doesn't happen all the time. If you had any concept of genetic evolution well then you wouldn't even have made any of these idiotic comment, but other than that you might realise that viruses are made to mutate naturally.
