New Bird Flu Strain One of the Most Lethal

According to Keiji Fukuda, assistant director-general for health security at the World Health Organization (WHO), the new bird flu strain that has already killed more than 22 people in China is "one of the most lethal" of its kind and transmits more easily to humans than another strain that has killed hundreds since 2003. This new strain, H7N9, is particularly problematic because of the absence of visible illness in poultry.

Please visit WHO says new bird flu strain is "one of the most lethal" flu viruses:
Nature has a way of reacting when we do things against it. Confining God’s animals, not allowing them to exercise their God-given instincts and needs, feeding them unnatural diets to make them grow faster and fatter or to produce more milk/eggs, mutilating them without anesthesia, giving them drugs so they can survive these conditions, abusing them to our benefit, etc. may be the cause for the new emergence of viral and bacterial strains since factory farms are the perfect vessels to combine, rotate and mutate viruses and bacteria. Once again, we reap what we sow; and these consequences might just be what makes us stop consuming these creatures or their by-products.
