    Shouldn't it be called sapien flu instead?
    I guess it makes sense, a man travels to canada with the swine flu and get's the pigs sick.

    Now that the swine flu virus has passed from a farmworker to pigs, could it jump back to people? The question is important, because crossing species again could make it more deadly.

    The never-before-seen virus was created when genes from pig, bird and human viruses mixed together inside a pig. Experts fear the virus that has gone from humans back into pigs in at least one case could mutate further before crossing back into humans again. But no one can predict what will happen.

    Saw this on the news earlier today, and wondered then, just how close did the guy get to the pig?

    Pardon me, but I think this is hilarious.

    I've stated my position on the whole thing in another thread; suffice it to say, another inroad for big pharma to exploit the unwitting populace and make millions more dirty dollars.

    p.s. You picked the right sub-forum for this post.

    Earlier today, my wife sent me an email with a photographic warning of what you MUST NEVER DO if you wish to avoid swine flu. Take a look for yourself.
