Bird Flu - Page 4

The question is, will the ever actually spread to humans? Most scientists agree that its not likely to spread now, its already mutated many more times than the average before switching species. I put that I would still eat chicken if there was an outbreak. I would switch to local farm grown chickens instead of store bought from who knows where. But by then, I may be a full vegetarian and not have to worry about it.

But in the US, they have continued to keep step with monitoring efforts to head this off before it can become an epidemic. It still has yet to be the world wide destruction that it was proclaimed to be.

Bird Flu News Medical & Diet Health

There was a case in Norfolk of contaminated birds a few months ago too.
The surprising side of that case was the fact that the bird flu was brought in from a bird from abroad, but the farm was supposed to only have British birds!

Was anybody bothered by this?

Apparently not, as most people don't give two hoots as long as they can get their hands on inexpensive chicken, it's Britain's number 1 favorite meat, and as long as the suppliers keep supplying it, not many people question it's origins.

Makes you think though doesn't it, as to what health dangers you serve the nation up with!

Here is the reason Bird FLu has not become a sensation on the news as Swine Flu has:

Human noses too cold for bird flu

Bird flu may not have become the threat to humans that some predicted because our noses are too cold for the virus to thrive, say UK researchers. Ref. Source 3

Flu Bird

Now that is a interesting reason as to why the bird flu does not seem to affect us as bad as it does the birds. I would have never thought that are noses were too cold to allow the germ to take hold.

What Does The Future Hold For Bird Flu Research

Scientists gather in New York to consider the future of bird flu research after a moratorium on the work passes. Critics say the work and its findings could pose security risks, but scientists defend their experiments as preparation for outbreaks.

Bird Flu - Page 4

Is the bird flu is like the common cold for the humans? I remembered reading something about birds and it says that the normal human common cold can effect a lot on birds, and can probably cause death. I was thinking, why?
