    New Swine Flu Strain G4 EA H1N1

    Swine flu strain with human pandemic potential increasingly found in Chinese pigs

    What the world doesn’t need now is a pandemic on top of a pandemic. So a new finding that Chinese pigs are more and more frequently becoming infected with a strain of influenza that has the potential to jump to humans has infectious disease researchers worldwide taking serious notice.

    When multiple strains of influenza viruses infect the same pig, they can easily swap genes, a process known as “reassortment.”

    The G4 variant is especially concerning because its core is an avian influenza virus—to which humans have no immunity—with bits of mammalian strains mixed in. “From the data presented, it appears that this is a swine influenza virus that is poised to emerge in humans,” says Edward Holmes, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Sydney who studies pathogens. “Clearly this situation needs to be monitored very closely.

    Isn’t it wonderful that China owns all the major pig farms and pork processing plants in America. This was an insane purchase allowed by obama. It ranks higher on the danger scale than Uranium One sale to Russia.

    They treat them terribly too. I was going to use another article for the topic but the pigs looked so sad in the picture in that article I couldn't stand it.

    Shut down air travel and let us live our regular lives. No more hiding. There will always be something the scare machine media can whip up into a crisis but if they were really afraid airplanes would be grounded.

    I recommend it. Pigs are very smart animals. We torture them and kill them.
