Hello there, I would just like to add my veiws about thjis bird flu . I think it is all a load of rubish and maybe just another scam to try and scare people. Myself I am a vegetarian, but I beleive that to secure yourself you should refrain from eating in fast food joints, and if you do buy chicken or any type of meats, make sure it is well seassoned before preparing it . But the most important thing to remember is to make sure you cook it for long enough.

It is easy to simply make a statement, but what grounds do you have to make it? Also, simply seasoning meat or cooking it well does not necessarily avoid diseases that may be within the meat since many bacteria and enemies to the body can withstand high heat.

As long as you eat meat, you are exposed to bacteria no matter how well you cook it, I do not think people realize how dangerous it is to consume meats and yes most of us are meat lovers yet everytime we eat it we are putting our bodies in risk of all sort of infections and diceases, the bird flu being just one of them.

I don't think the problem with bird flu is the risk you get of infection from birds. In Asian countries where safety standards and screening practices are poor it has infected humans. But this is quite rare and unlikely, even if you work with poultry. And if it can only be transmitted this way it can be managed.

What scientists fear is if the deadly avian influenza mutates into a form that can easily transmit from human to human. Then it can take on pandemic proportions.

There is are two antivirals that can be used to treat avian flu, tamiflu and relenza, but just recently it was revealed that tamiflu may not be as effective as first thought.

And people in western countries have been in a frenzy to stockpile this drug which means the supply will never be able to cope with demand in the event it does become a pandemic.

One of the major side effects of all pandemics is the damage it inflicts on the economy and to the medical system. If the avian flu does take hold it will also increase the risk of people dying from other curable diseases simply because the medical system will not be able to cope with the load.

There is an excellent website with information on the avian flu.
