In any case it is also the survival of the fittest for virus and bacteria. They keep evolving to life conditions at the cost of others.


But see, we can't even properly apply the theory of survival of the fittest in a biological sense, in this case, more so because none of us have immunity against this new strain of the virus. So we're all in the same boat. If its transmitted, then you will be affected, because your immune system will not be able to help you. I guess you could so that one's personal health will play a role in how your body develops a coping mechanism to fight the virus, but as of now, they don't even have a proper treatment option. I believe they're relying on TamaFlu, aren't they?

Actually, I meant the survival of virus and bacteria life forms.

We are producing so may medicines and our immune system is constantly evolving, but bacteria and virus life forms are  also constantly evolving to survive. Thus, there are always some new and mutated strains to trouble us.

More later, but I'm sick of this swine flu business. Americans just like to run like chickens with their heads cut off.


I agree, media is creating an unnecessary hype. But death tolls are increasing, and no sign of a vaccine in the near future. What do you think? Closing down over 300 schools in the US reasonable? 


Bring it flu, bring it on. Unlike other nancies who live in a bubble, I happen to live in the real world. All the health jazz that Americans are neurotic over mean jack to me.

If I had not planned a summer trip already, I would be taking advantage of the mass hysteria heading to Cancun.

I also do not believe in flu shots. I refuse to take one and make my immune system run on crutches. A virus runs its course. Take the usual chicken soup and plenty of vitamin C. Tylenol etc. if necessary. If your body fights it good. If not you deserve to die.
