The next idiot who ask why I’m still eating pork is gonna get bitched-slapped. I mean SERIOUSLY, you’d think most people would have the read up about the virus by now!

From Wikipedia

he 2009 flu outbreak in humans, known as “swine flu”, is due to an apparently virulent new strain of influenza A virus subtype H1N1 that was produced by reassortment from one strain of human influenza virus, one strain of avian influenza virus, and two separate strains of swine influenza. The origin of this new strain is unknown, and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) reports that this strain has not been isolated in pigs.[2] It can be transmitted from human to human, an ability attributed to an as-yet unidentified mutation.[3] This 2009 H1N1 strain causes the normal symptoms of influenza, such as fever, coughing and headache.[4]

Now I have to get my temperature checked and recorded.

Thanks for this post. http://www.flu2013.com/ – helped me learned more about flu. I hope flu and virus will never be in the headline again for killing a lot of people.
