Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Swine Flu

This is a very serious incident right now. Everyone needs to be very careful because there are even outbreaks in Ohio.

This disease was a mutation from the flu that usually affects birds and pigs.  Currently, there are no vaccines for this new strain but some cases have been treated with heavy antibiotics.

The worst cases are currently in Mexico. It is so bad there that the World Bank is providing Mexico with more than $200 million in loans to help deal with this outbreak.

Just be careful!
