Until 1957, the different strains of seasonal flu were weaker descendants of the 1918 Spanish Flu. In 1957, the Asian Flu became the dominant kind of flu (and was later replaced by the Hong Kong Flu in 1968). Because the Swine Flu is more closely related to the Spanish Flu, people who were born before 1957 have more resistance to the Swine Flu.
Confirming the first impressions of many American and Mexican doctors, federal health officials said on Wednesday that people born before 1957 appear to have some immunity to the swine flu virus now circulating.
Tests on blood serum from older people showed that they had antibodies that attacked the new virus, Dr. Daniel Jernigan, chief flu epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in a telephone news conference.

Posters on the Rapture Ready forum, who can’t wait for the world to end, had this to say:
I find myself mad and in disbelief that googel would celebrate such an out right falsehood.

I saw it and was going to post on it as well but you beat me to it. I almost threw my laptop it made me soooooooooo mad! Made me wonder what the logo would look like after we’re taken outta here!
I never use liberal Google either.
This is just disgusting.
Gee Whiz, if Google is trying to stay in touch with what is going on in the world today, they should change their logo to have burning red flames of fire around it…… GOOHELL
Afghanistan apparently has one pig. It lives in a zoo.
Afghanistan’s only known pig has been locked in a room, away from visitors to Kabul zoo where it normally grazes beside deer and goats, because people are worried it could infect them with the virus popularly known as swine flu.
In 2008, the Mormon Church baptized President Obama’s mother posthumously. Which didn’t surprise me much. But apparently the baptism was against the Mormon religious code because the dead are only supposed to be baptized when a living, Mormon relative submits them for it. And here I thought they were just baptizing the entire human race will-nilly.
