You misunderstood what they were saying. They stated that genetic segments from the three were there, not that it was three types of flu combined. Kindly don't try to panic people by making it seem worse, similar viruses have been seen in the past with that combination and you only frighten people by suggesting that this could be a "manmade" combination with human and avian flus.

Virgogirl, HUMANS CAN GET AVIAN AND SWINE FLUS. Those animals CAN GET HUMAN FLUS. It's not that hard to understand. If you can't post in this thread without causing a fuss, stop posting in it. Period.

That's just peachy, now there's a nationwide health emergency because of this stupid disease. Ugh. I'm never going to Mexico. And I'm laying off pork products until this gets solved. -.-;

I never eat pork products. I'm a vegetarian and my religion forbids me. xD

My mother read a book on the Spanish Influenza, and they said that illnesses and diseases come thru gently in Spring, and then will sweep thru violently again in the next winter.

I have no link to back it up aside the book, sorry. But anyway, I was watching the news and they said some kids in NYC caught it during Spring Break in Mexico and went back to the city, totally changing the direction of the sickness. I just hope it stays away from Chicago, because there are about 5 million peoples....

In any case, I heard on the radio that pork products are fine to eat as long as they're cooked all the way thru and people just keep to basic hygiene; ie, washing hands and utensils.

In any case, there's no need to have panic stations; the media tends to whip everyone into hysteria by exaggerating everything. They did the same with samonella, mad cow disease, bird flu; pretty much everything, acting as tho the disease was on a par with bubonic plague. -.-

What you need to know about swine flu

Just wanted to share this with you all in case you had more questions. Most things are touched upon in this; it looks like it was mainly allocated to Mexico and a number of initial suspected swine flu cases there were not it at all, just something else.

Also, I'd like to repeat what the article on Wiki said despite the fact it can be edited: There ARE pieces of the many flu viruses that can copy themselves into new versions and sometimes they mix with other types of the flu, which is why it's so hard to treat to begin with and why there's a new flu almost every year. Why do you think they recommend getting a flu shot every winter?

Imagine how I feel--I live in NYC and the first few US cases I heard of were located there. Not only that, but I use public transit and live in a building filled with college kids who just came back from spring break a little over a week ago, some from Mexico. Its terrifying trying to avoid getting it.

I haven't actually known anyone yet with it, but one of our teachers told us his daughter, Hollis, was sick with a serious illness. She lives in Indiana, so I don't know if there have been cases in that state. We think he means she has Swine Flu, but I have no evidence.
