Anyway, this item stood out:
"Even if one doesn’t eat meat, more than half of downer pigs tested in the Midwest were found to be actively infected with swine flu, both the classic swine flu virus and the triple hybrid mutant that led to the 2009 human pandemic that killed more than ten thousand Americans."Where have I been? The 2009 swine flu killed 10,000 Americans?
Recalling the 2009 swine flu:
- April, 2009 - An outbreak of influenza occurred in Mexico and the US.
- June 11, 2009 - WHO declared an H1N1 pandemic.
- October 25, 2009 - President Obama officially declared H1N1 a national emergency.
Maybe it would be a good idea to minimize flu outbreaks in factory-farmed livestock herds, since factory farming isn't going away anytime soon.
