Human Swine Influenza: Understaffed

The volume of Human Swine flu info has exceeded my ability to keep up.  I will try to post sporadically on interesting scientific, political or business implications.

In the meantime, I have added two widgets on the right side of this page:

  • Google news RSS for “swine”
  • Twitter RSS for #swineflu

That should help visitors keep up with the news and help me get back to my day/night job.

Also keep in mind:

  1. The CDC Swine Flu Page
  2. The WHO Swine Flu Page
  3. You can not catch swine flu by eating pork
