Here's the culprit

Or that we're all going to die from drinking from plastic bottles?
Or that we should all be dying of brain tumours due to mobiles?
Or wireless networks?
Or that everyone vaccinated with the MMR vaccine is now autistic?
Or that eating fish will give us all mercury poisoning?
Or that we're all going to die of radiation poisoning?
The list is far too long. Its a miracle we're not all dead already.
"The only known cure for Swine Flu has been found to be the liberal application of oinkment."
"Apparently my mate's got Swine Flu, I think he's just telling porkies, though."
"Will there be a mass outbreak of Human/Avian Swine flu? When pigs fly."
"So Pig Flu has started in America. Who says God doesn't have a sense of humour?"
Was only in San Diego a week or so ago and came back with soar throat, lung infection/cough.
Just spreading the swine virus about school.
The Israeli government rejected the name swine flu, and opted to call it "Mexico flu." The US pork industry have also called for a name change; people might think you can catch the disease for eating roast pork. What ever next?
Snout to worry about.
Yep the media is in Scare factor 10 on this one
I think we're all getting a little bit blasé about this swine flu situation.
- The first influenza pandemic was recorded in 1580 and since then influenza pandemics occurred every 10 to 30 years.
- Influenza pandemics in 1729-1730, 1732-1733, 1781-1782, 1830, 1833-1834, 1847-1848.
- The "Asiatic Flu", 1889–1890. Was first reported in May of 1889 in Bukhara, Uzbekistan. By October, it had reached Tomsk and the Caucasus. It rapidly spread west and hit North America in December 1889, South America in February–April 1890, India in February-March 1890, and Australia in March–April 1890. It was purportedly caused by the H2N8 type of flu virus, and had a very high attack and mortality rate. About 1 million people died in this pandemic.
- The "Spanish flu", 1918–1919. First identified early in March 1918 in US troops training at Camp Funston, Kansas. By October 1918, it had spread to become a world-wide pandemic on all continents, and eventually infected 2.5 to 5% of the human population, with 20% or more of the world population suffering from the disease to some extent. Unusually deadly and virulent, it ended nearly as quickly as it began, vanishing completely within 18 months. In six months, some 50 million were dead; some estimates put the total of those killed worldwide at over twice that number. An estimated 17 million died in India, 675,000 in the United States and 200,000 in the UK. The virus was recently reconstructed by scientists at the CDC studying remains preserved by the Alaskan permafrost. They identified it as a type of H1N1 virus.
- The "Asian Flu", 1957–58. An H2N2 caused about 70,000 deaths in the United States. First identified in China in late February 1957, the Asian flu spread to the United States by June 1957. It caused about 2 million deaths globally.
- The "Hong Kong Flu", 1968–69. An H3N2 caused about 34,000 deaths in the United States. This virus was first detected in Hong Kong in early 1968, and spread to the United States later that year. This pandemic of 1968 and 1969 killed an estimated one million people worldwide. Influenza A (H3N2) viruses still circulate today.
