    hello everyone. i just heard something today about a "swine flu" that's apparently becoming very serious in mexico. so far, this has claimed over 60 lives. from the information that i have, they are concerned about travelers bringing it back to the states. unlike the avian (bird) flu, this apparently has bird, pig, and some kind of human virus attached. sounds like people are getting very seriously (and fatally) ill from this. flu and pneumonia-like symptoms.

    first, i'm wondering if this is true.

    second, should i be concerned about getting this and maybe start staying away from certain foods?

    if anyone has anymore information, please share with me.

    i appreciate it.

    When you're dealing with the truth & the media, it becomes hard to know true from false (9/11, Iraq, Iran/Contra just to name a few).
    As for me, I'm not too worried about what I eat (it's not supposed to be harmful, but don't take my word as fact). I'm more worried as to the amount of Mexicans that are illegal that work at the plant I work at (most of them are just coming from south of the border). I hate to sound critical, but come Monday morning, I will be watching closely.
    The good news so far is that even though there has been reported cases in the u.s. , all had only mild symptoms and fully recovered. But as i said, don't quote me on this as my info comes from the media as well.

    Sister Allgonemilw ... thanks for starting this thread, and sharing. I'd not heard anything about it.

    Here is a news video about it, giving some suggestions on how to stay safe :
