Mutated Avian/Swine Flu Virus Found


technocrat.net

A virus that has genes from both swine flu and avian flu has been found in swine from Missouri. This H2N3 has been found at two different farms now and samples were taken and analyzed. Health authorities are concerned about this one because it shows that pigs act as a "mixing vessel" for viruses. This new strain is more of a concern-if it starts spreading to people, which it hasn't yet and might not-for those younger than 40 years old, because no similar viruses have been in circulation since the 1957-1958 flu pandemic.

This is rather shocking!Since swine are similar in the compostition like human, couldnt that mean that now pigs could give us a mutated version to bird flu? Worrying news if you ask me...what do ya'll think?

I would like to know the area this is occurring at as I live in Missouri and this not something I would like to see my son exposed to. I am not so much worried about myself only him.

I also did a search and can’t find anything else on this apparently no new source has gotten wind of this or they are refusing or unable to report it. I will be keeping an eye and ear out for any news coming about this. It seems odd that no other place is reporting this though.

Thanks for the heads up by the way.

Thats funny.....very funny. i just watch a video presentation on Dr.Deagle. Covering the Avian virus......... form your own opinions.

video.google.com...

Right at 20minutes and 46 seconds he starts covering this virus. speculate if you will, but Deagles end statements are becoming true and you need to know.

Raist-I will try to find out more info on this. What part of missouri are you located in? You are welcome for the heads up.

Obsurion-I will check out that video, thanks for sharing it w/ us. Yes, things are becoming true. I honestly think the WHO should at least raise the level to phase 4 considering the recent events.

Funny, I think the LORD told us not to eat swine or touch their dead bodies.

Looks like the big guy knew what he was talking about.

I remember getting a swine flu innoculation as a kid back in the 70s. I was young and remember being in line with a bunch of other people. Actually, I think that was the last innoculation that I've had.

I'm glad that people report things like this here. Haven't seen anything on this on the mainstream media channels.

I'm in Missouri as well but haven't heard anything about this. Although I am in Kansas City and we don't really care about pigs here. Just cows and rodeos and big salad bowl arenas and stuff.

From the source's source...


After the virus was subtyped, a record search revealed that another unidentified virus had been submitted in April 2006, from a 12-week-old pig at another Missouri swine farm, according to the report. Analysis by the ARS showed that this isolate too was an H2N3, and the two viruses were nearly identical.

So the same bug turned up at another farm eight miles away a year and a half prior. I can't say this new report causes me much concern. Just a notation that the critters are still out there.

Hah yeah then his kid came along and said, "Screw those silly Jew laws. Bacon is good!"

I’m located about two hours south of St. Louis. I live several blocks from Southeast Missouri University. While there may not be a lot of farms in this town there is a great deal of live stock farms located in the nearby areas. Actually there is a large (for this area) dairy farm just across the road from our Walmart.

In a nearby town I grew up in a neighbor raised cattle and pigs. Heck when I was very young my family had a few pigs raised for food. They also had chickens to so this kind of mixture could be a bad mixture now days. Oh well that was the past anyway so I don’t have to worry about getting it out there.

I’m not worried about the fact that I love bacon because cooking the stuff will kill the virus. I’m pretty safe there just so long as we don’t start getting mad pig disease I would be truly bummed out then.

I agree though that I should be hearing about this in the news. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt though and think of it as still being early, but I’ll only give 24 hours on that idea. I’m not sure if I remember hearing about it last year or not, I seem to vaguely recall hearing about bird flu or swine flu in Missouri but not a mutation of both.
