Bird Flu 2: Sa Pa, Vietnam
“Stop your crow, so I could tell you this, please!”
“No. Just an update.”
“About you and me?”
“Of course! They are talking about mass killings of poultry again, due to the outbreak of Bird Flu.”
“Well, as long as they don’t call their pandemic Chicken Flu, it’s OK with me!”
Recently, travelers have been warned about the outbreak of Avian Influenza (Bird Flu) again. Believe it or not, let’s face it:
*US Health Department
*United Nations Heath Organization
*Nature Publishing Group
You have to take your health into your own hands and be responsible for your own health outcome, which means educating yourself. Essentially, the bird flu situation looks to be getting worse. We're seeing more infections in Vietnam and symptomless carriers, and countries are doing little to actually prepare for the virus. They have plans in place and claim to be stockpiling a vaccine that doesn't even exist. The only thing they are really stockpiling is Tamiflu, which is not very effective against H5N1 and will be in short supply if an outbreak actually occurs.
In this serial of pictures, I would like to share with you the reality: although chicken in human conversation is a fear, in the food circulation, it is a promised taste and profit.

I was following up your postings and noticed that your pictures have been posted by purpose as having the reason to transmit your note rather than the existence of the pictures themselves.
It seems to me you are in a wrong place, since in this forum we can find the majority of photos are without or with strictly limited of accompanying info. Your photos are in a rare category where they illustrate the texts. Spending a few seconds, I can both enjoy your capture and enrich my knowledge using your information. Thanks.
