Pigs at risk from people as new flu spreads
LONDON (Reuters) – There is a growing risk that pigs will catch the new H1N1 flu strain — commonly known as swine flu — from humans, German researchers said on Thursday.
Widespread transmission from people to pigs could mix up virus strains further, leading to unpredictable changes in the disease.
There have already been a handful of suspected cases of humans passing the current pandemic H1N1 virus to swine. The latest German research confirms it is infectious to pigs and can spread rapidly.

There’s something about the phrase “the latest German research” that just gets me nervous…

    I understand that Herr Doktor Mengele took frozen Jews and bludgeoned pigs to death with the, thus proving that Jews are dangerous to pigs.
    I believe that he also dropped Jews from aircraft onto herds of swine and measured the resulting porcine fatalities.
    The latest German research is yet unclear as to why Jews avoid pigs, given their manifest lethality.

    Trying again, my previous comment got caught up in some spam-filter:

    some state fairs are making people stand a minimum of 6 feet back from the swine pens….so the pigs don’t get flu if some idiot decides he still is entitled to go to the fair even if he’s sick and contagious.

    Of course, no similar precautions are taken for the people who may come into contact with said idiot.
