From Grist: Dr. Michael Greger, author of Bird Flu: A Virus of Our Own Hatching presents some very startling facts which explains what mankind has changed over the last few centuries to put us at risk of a major pandemic. Its not a matter of IF, but a matter of WHEN this pandemic will strike. Archived film & photos present some interesting historical facts about the 1918 Spanish influenza pandemic. If history does repeat itself, life on this planet will be changed forever. Symptom: swine flu. Diagnosis: industrial agriculture? http://www.grist.org/article/2009-04-28-more-smithfield-swine/
