I'm sharing some thoughts on the chance (and the hope) that some medical professionals will respond to them.
Swine Flu has swept the world into a frenzy (with mainstream media's help). I'd like to minimize the cause for concern, if possible.
I'm eager to clarify a link between:
1. Filthy animals used as food
and 3. Human disease.
Swine Flu has appeared in places (North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and parts of Asia) with opportunistic environments: pig troughs and pig pens.
Filthy feed troughs seem to present a case of double jeopardy: Pigs swallowing the viruses or rolling about in them, absorb them into their flesh.
have clearly been harmed by
the dangerous exposure.
The above scenario leads me to suspect that if handlers are on nutritionally poor diets themselves, they'd be even more susceptible to risks of Swine Flu infection, thus facilitating the animal-to-human infection danger among themselves and everyone in contact with them.
Frequent dining on antibiotic-filled food might be harming human diners. What if the antibiotics don't prevent Swine Flu?
Eating Swine Flu-infected animals might also spread disease. If Swine Flu viruses are impervious to low heat, then improper cooking could complicate matters.
The threats above may hold true for all animals used for human consumption: Cows, chickens, ducks, geese, etc.
Think Avian Flu and SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and reflect on past headlines.
So does breathing.
The absence of junk to 'eat' could cause them to die off.
Worldwide medical advice seems to indicate that we should stay as healthy as possible, keeping our immune systems strong so that bad-news bacteria, germs and viruses will not prey on us.
Stick to organically raised livestock
Behaving with maximum decency and compassion, no matter your mood or circumstances can only improve your inner and outer health. The world of medical and mental health science proves that point. And, to be something of a name-dropper, GOD promised us the same thing (Shmot/Exodus 15:26 and elsewhere).
I welcome responses to the thoughts I've shared above.
