Joke all you want, but it's a valid concern. You can't catch the Swine Flu by eating properly cooked pork (and if you're not cooking your pork
properly, you potentially have a lot more than the flu to worry about), but many people wrongly associate eating pork products with the Swine Flu.
"Big deal," you may say, "so people don't eat pigs for a while." Well, what happens to the farmers who raise those pigs (which, thus far, have
not been shown to be the cause of this so-called Swine Flu) when their lively hood is destroyed by false panic?
