Are We Close to a Bird Flu Pandemic?

According to scientist Dr. Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin-Madison the H5N1 virus, commonly known as the bird flu, has already mutated and thus has the possibility of developing in the upper respiratory systems of humans, which could easily increase the chances of the virus spreading from one person to another. Dr. Kawaoka refers to samples taken from birds in Africa and Europe, which show mutations that resemble human viruses. Dr. Kawaoka’s report was published in the Public Library of Science journal PLoS Pathogens.

Exploiting God’s animals for profit and taste has only brought misery to Creation. Factory farmed animals are raised under extreme confinement, fear and pain, making disease transmittal more likely. We can show respect and reverence for God’s Creation by adopting a pant-based diet than can help us reduce animal suffering and restore our health.
