The way that scientists mutate organisms is by using antibiotics to lower the species barrier this increases gene transfer (mutation) by up to 10000 times. Our hospitals need to be informed as they are treating swine flu sufferers with antibiotics possibly mutating this disease.

How exactly antibiotics would influence a VIRUS???? It can cause mutations in bacteria, sure. Due to all kinds of things. But bacteria is totally different life form family then viruses, who are even not considered life form by majority of scientist. The whole concept is wrong.
