Does this help you feel a little better about "Swine Flu"

I realize that this has the potential to be really serious, and have actually been terrified of it. For some reason, this is the link that helped me to put it all in perspective and gave me the most information. Thought Iwould share. :)

  • Yes, it does! Thank you.

    Going by news articles is rediculous. They want to tell you about the millions that could die or have died in the past (but they are lumping multiple pandemics over the course of centuries for those statistics). However, it's rare to find something that explains WHAT it is, what the symptoms are and that it won't necessarily kill you. Good news doesn't make for a good press I guess. I think it is serious but I also think the media is playing off of our nerves.
