Random Saturday morning thoughts on the flu and pork
Over breakfast I was watching an absolutely fascinating program about the H1N1 swine flu on C-Span. It's still going on. (Andrew Pekosz, an associate professor at the Hopkins School of Public Health is the guest.)
I finally had to stop watching to get on with my day -- thank goodness for TiVo -- but one thing really struck me. He said H1N1 doesn't develop naturally in pigs. They get it from humans. Isn't that sad?
Now you can go back to eating pork. Actually I wonder if pork consumption is down. I haven't read anything about it lately. ...
Another thing: Every time he mentioned the virus, he called it the 2009 H1N1; and he said it's here to stay.
Monday morning sharp I'm going to find a place to get my flu vaccine. The seasonal flu, of course.
All this talk of swine flu makes me think of bacon, and from that a post I've been meaning to do on bacon soap. Check back later.
