Even Deadlier Than Swine Flu

May 4th, 2009 by Jeb Foster


When I wrote this article on Swine Flu (and other deadly things) last Friday, it seemed the Aporkalypse was at hand.

Today, a mere three days later, the H1N1 virus already seems like old news. Even Mexico City residents are starting to take off their masks. Phew. [Knocking on wood]

Of course, some experts worry that the Swine Flu could reemerge in six months as an even deadlier virus. Let’s hope not. Still, I’ll take an Aporkalypse Later over an Aporkalypse Now any day of the week.

In the meantime, click here to read about all of the other things you should be scared of—things that make the Swine Flu look as cute and cuddly as Babe. In fact, you’ll learn that your standard, run-of-the-mill flu is far deadlier (statistically) than H1N1.

    Thanks for putting things in perspective, Jeb.

    We all tend to overreact and panic when the unknown happens. But when we look at the picture as a whole and get all the facts, things usually aren’t nearly as bad as they seem on the surface—as is the case with the Swine Flu.

    Let’s do what’s sensible, take precautions and get our shots, and I’m sure the whole “pandemic” thing will be over in no time.
