  • You don't get it from eating pork. You catch it like normal flu. It is exactly the same and only a test can decide which kind you have.

  • You cannot get it through eating pork, this disease is transmitted through humans. It isn't the same Swine flu from before.

  • You can always die from any Influenza. They don't have a vaccine specifically for this one yet. The flu vacc. that everyone got last lear was for Influenza type A. You will not get it from eating pork. It is passed from pig to human to human. Just wash your hands and don't touch your mouth or nose. Like with any flu or cold. Geez people. It's like any other flu, catchy if you don't wash your hands and you touch stuff that an infected person touched.

  • Yes and you can't get the Swine flu from a pork chop, it's actually a mixture of Pig, Bird and Human flu. Are you gonna stop eating chicken too? Eggs? Are you gonna not go anywhere because humans can spread the flu too?
