The World Health Organization has had a busy couple of weeks keeping track of three deadly strains across the world, and world travelers have probably been equally overcome with fear. And while the public-health group has been realistic in combatting a worldwide freakout — at least it's been a bit more proactive than local governments in check-ups on novel coronavirus, Chinese bird flu, and now wild polio in Africa — the WHO did confirm over the weekend that the SARS cousin, NCoV, can spread between humans in the same room. If you're already afraid of humans in the same room as you, here's how to responsibly freak out on the viral news before it goes viral in the wrong way.
You should freak out if ... you've recently visited China, France, Saudi Arabia, and Somalia.

Because if you haven't been to any of those four countries of late, none of the three viruses have escaped them. The new bird flu, H7N9, has spread across the provinces of China. The newest cases of NCoV were found in France after a traveler came from Dubai — the United Arab Emirates still don't face a threat, but a large number of cases of the disease stem from Saudi Arabia. Oh, yeah, and the WHO issued an alert on Saturday that "wild poliovirus" was found in Somalia — preliminarily, but still: a confirmation that it was spreading "would constitute a serious national and international risk to public health." But even for the far-flung, there's this...

I prefer berries such as sea buck-thorn and cabbage and other veggies as a source of my vitamin C intake actually. I rarely eat fruit.

I think i might have a severe case of the bird flu along with symptoms of mad cow disease and a touch of flesh eating bacteria all wrapped up within my inablity to produce tears while watching myself going bald through sleepless bloodshot eyes (*-*)

The evil game tptb are playing with our only lives is all about fear and consumption,making us feel like we cant live without buying mostly useless products we dont really want or need,making the politically influential royal bloodline elites and the powerful industrialists super wealthy,while the remaining vast majority of greed driven people are railroaded into the abyss of financial oppression and its resultant after effects of sexual repression,homelessness,suicide,prison and the grave...

Pretty cool,huh?!
