Their entire proofreading staff has already succumbed to the same affliction....
I’ve heard of a furnace flue, but not a swine flue.
Prayers for her family.
While the headline is wrong, the text is right — she died from COMPLICATIONS from the flu (likely acute respiratory distress or pneumonia)
The Swine Flu is NOT a direct killer.
Pennsylvania Newspaper Association Award Winner Dies Of Swine Flue
What did she win? A free lifetime subscription?
Oh the irony.
Neither is AIDS. Does this make anybody feel better?
It’s about getting our facts straight.
People don’t die of AIDS - they die from some pathogen their deficient/compromised immune system can’t fight.
People don’t die from Swine Flu, they die from other infections they can’t fight of while weakened by the flu.
It’s not about FEELING. It’s about keeping people alive becasue they understand what the REAL health risks are. Swine Flu is not the direct risk. Secondary pulmonary infections ARE the risk, and if people were properly ‘scared’ of that instead of the swine flu, AND were on the look out for the RIGHT symptoms, then people MIGHT just survive their bout with the swine flu and its complications. SO, yes it’s about making people feel better because they are aware of the REAL risks facing them and what to do about it.
i.e., read the CDC advice to clinicians about H1N1-A SOI, particularly the part about secondary pulmonary infections. You might feel better.
Here’s a new thread on the topic
I genuinely think you might find it useful.
So, which REALLY did come first, the chicken, or the egg?
Genetically, the chicken(s) came first. (actually the rooster did, but I digress badly)
The parents (progenitors of the first chicken) produced the (genetically genuine) chicken as a result of ‘mutated’ recombinant genes in ovum and sperm. ... which happened to grow in the ‘egg’ of something that wasn’t quite a chicken.
But what did that very first chicken mate with to produce more chicken offspring?
That’s a different can of worms, but a fun one to ask people to think about if they are strict evolutionists. If man descended from chimps; when the first genetically human offspring was born to a chimp, what did that first human mate with to produce more fertile offspring? (REM: chromosomes don’t match, so offspring WON’T likely be fertile ... think mules)
thread hijacking at work ;-)
Good answer! ;)
cheap swine flu prevention
