What Goes Around

The CBC reports that researchers in Canada have good evidence that Swine flu roots traced to Spanish flu.

The 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic was the big worry for everyone when the Influenza A H1N1 [swine flu] appeared in Mexico, and Canadian researchers have evidence that the two are linked, but this is the Spanish flu that pigs caught from people in 1918, so they are returning the “favor”. The porcine version is a mild respiratory disease for them, and it would appear that it has mutated into the same thing for humans on the return path.

CNN reports that the panic that the media has helped to spread is having its effect: ‘Walking well’ flood hospitals with — or without — flu symptoms.

I noticed that there are approximately 400 schools closed in the US, and around 160 confirmed cases.

The climate of terror created by the Hedgemony is having an effect, and it isn’t good. Americans need to learn to wash their hands with soap and water, just like you were taught as a child when I was growing up. Passing around a bottle of hand sanitizer is not a good idea, as the exterior of the bottle is as contaminated as everything else, but it’s better than nothing.

If you find something that is useful or topical, I have no problem with the recommendation.

Anyone who doesn’t know that aspirin is the equivalent of willow bark tea isn’t much of an expert on traditional medicine or wilderness survival. It has side effects, like anything you take into your body, but there are times when it is necessary to bring down someone’s temperature, because that alone can be deadly.
