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

for God’s Creation by adopting a pant-based diet than can help us
reduce animal suffering and restore our health.
