Open Thread

Swine flu is most likely not due to eating bacon. (Flu viruses are normally spread through coughs, sneezes and physical contact, and not through food that is eaten.) But this particular flu hot spot seems to have been started awfully close to an industrial pig farm as over 60% of the nearby village got sick from something that looked like flu that sure sounds the same as the virus the health officials are tracking now. It seems like it would be good to investigate the overall health ecosystem of the farm and those villagers that live (and died) nearby.
