You know how the swine flu has been getting so much media attention...how much do you think its really a pandemic

the UN has declared it a pandemic but many people are skeptical...
and the research is still going on
like the article below says..
first the scientists said it wasnt from pigs now they're saying it might be..and they just found out that it actually came from asia
http://newsblaze.com/story/200906260.../topstory.html

I just find it a little uncomforting that all these 'deadly' viruses are popping up everyday..first it was bird flu, then SARS...now this
what do you think the actual problem is..
genetic manipulation becoming widespread
the increase of global travel - it becomes hard to contain the thing in one place when we're all moving so fast and over large distances
have we become less healthy as a population
or perhaps just dirtier globally..

what do you guys think?
