Swine Flu: H1N1 Virus More Dangerous Than Suspected, Except To Survivors Of The 1918 Pandemic Flu Virus

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/20 ... 212231.htm

"There is a misunderstanding about this virus," says Kawaoka, a professor of pathobiological sciences at the UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine and a leading authority on influenza. "People think this pathogen may be similar to seasonal influenza. This study shows that is not the case. There is clear evidence the virus is different than seasonal influenza."

The ability to infect the lungs, notes Kawaoka, is a quality frighteningly similar to those of other pandemic viruses, notably the 1918 virus, which killed tens of millions of people at the tail end of World War I. There are likely other similarities to the 1918 virus, says Kawaoka, as the study also showed that people born before 1918 harbor antibodies that protect against the new H1N1 virus.

And it is possible, he adds, that the virus could become even more pathogenic as the current pandemic runs its course and the virus evolves to acquire new features. It is now flu season in the world's southern hemisphere, and the virus is expected to return in force to the northern hemisphere during the fall and winter flu season."

There is more in the article.. so might wanna pick up some extra stuff before winter gets here.... ;)

Well.. the sun is not expected to blow up.. it will swell up like a balloon, well beyond our orbit (swalling Earth in the process).. then just shed all the outer layers of it's surface only to leave a white dwarf behind. So we've got that covered.. but I'm gonna make a run on soda since there will not be any left after a H1N1 mutation. ;)

Gag! Well, it could just be Monetezuma's revenge! (sp). Glad you are in good spirits, that'll help you more than most treatment. Eric, I hope you do get to feeling better!

*note: I hope you are kidding about being sick or even sick enough to have lost weight. However, think of the bright side, you've really kicked back in Mexico without worries! ;)

Thanks for all the well wishes I definitly had my fair share of beer down south which probably lowered my defenses quite a bit. I also found out my cousin and her bf have swine flu so I'm not the only one dying. :|

In all seriousness though I'll be good to go by next week as I'm already feeling better. I just thought it was funny everyone was giving Ein shit and I go down south and get hit with the flu.
