Swine Flu

There is a lot of hype about swine flu, isn't there?  I'm not a doctor, but here is some info:

  • Swine flu is a rapidly mutating virus, which makes it very hard for humans to cope with it. 
  • This is new stuff, inoculations are not available
  • The best defense is to have your immune system in tip-top shape.  Well rested, wash your hands, diet, etc.
  • There are no known cases in Oregon (yet)
  • Probably goes without saying you might want to avoid travel to areas that do have known cases
  • You can't get it from eating pork
  • You don't have it. 

The CDC has more info here:
