    Oh lovely, now it's the swine

    First it was the chickens, then mad cow, then MRSA, now swine flu with a hint of chicken.

    That's it. I'm going to shower in BioCid now.

    Great. We live in a wild pig state. As other states have deer roadkill, we get to have pig roadkill.

    There are some people who argue that deer can spread a strain of CJD.

    These things change, but as of yesterday the CDC had no human to human cases, only antibodies in people exposed to humans who caught it working near swine.

    Could be, but my point was you don't get it from eating the meat. Unless you're dumb enough to eat raw pork anyway.

    I just read this:

    The CDC and Canadian health officials were studying samples sent from Mexico, and airports around the world were screening passengers from Mexico for symptoms of the new flu strain, saying they may quarantine passengers.
    My Way News - Mexico fights swine flu with 'pandemic potential'


    Sounds like they must be a little worried about it spreading human to human.

    Oh, I would say they are worried for sure - it only takes one for the jump to happen, and then we have a pandemic.

    Got this in my email today:

    A Message on Behalf of the National Pork Board
    CDC Declares Pork is Safe to Eat
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified cases in the United States where people have been diagnosed with a form of influenza virus known as swine influenza virus subtype H1N1. That is the same virus causing human illness in Mexico.
    Swine influenza virus not in pork
    According to the CDC, swine influenza viruses are not transmitted by food. You can not get swine influenza from eating pork or pork products. Eating properly handled and cooked pork and pork products is safe.

    Not found in pigs
    The swine influenza subtype isolated from these cases is unique. It has not been found in U.S. pigs and had not been previously recognized in people. According to the CDC, “This virus is different, very different from that found in pigs.” At this time there is no evidence that this swine influenza subtype is present in pigs in the United States or anywhere in the pig herd in the world. The CDC’s investigation continues.

    Transmission of the virus
    The CDC has determined that this virus is contagious and is spreading from humans to humans. However, at this time, it is not known how easily the virus spreads between people.
    Additional resources:


    Questions:

    Please contact Cindy Cunningham at 515-223-2600 or by email at CCunningham@Pork.org

    WHO went to pandemic level 4 today.

    Just saying. I know I'm not leaving the US for a while, nor am I going to any airports. lol

    This is nowhere near a pandemic. Get educated, take normal precautions, and leave the scare tactics to the gov't and media. Time to move on with your lives.
