Coming on the heels of revelations that the CDC cooked the books to make the H1N1 (formerly known as Swine) virus look far more dangerous than it was, comes the latest scare tactic to get people to stick those needles in their arms: The H5N1 Virus! Omigod! It must be 5 times as deadly as the H1N1!!!!
Scientists have already detected the virus in poultry in Indonesia, Egypt, Thailand and Vietnam, and warn that it is only a few mutations away from posing a threat to human life!!!
Good grief. More and more these days, what passes for public health in this country resembles a poorly-plotted zombie movie.
