Marie 08/25/05 02:25 pm For those of you who like to be in the 'know' about Avian Flu, there are several pages and links at the foot of the page where one can see what REALLY is happening. The media tends to create a monster where millions of people will die. Granted Avian Flu is a cause for concern but not quite the epidemic that the media likes to report.
You can read all about it at

Celeste 08/25/05 03:25 pm Thank you Marie, only today our Long Island newspaper wrote a long article and mentioned that the risk is increased particularly with migrating birds. They also indicated that the birds seem to be surviving and will be carriers. I intend to read your article a bit later......
Anne 08/25/05 04:44 pm Horror of horrors, I actually heard a guy on the radio today saying that all birds migrating from affected areas should be shot. That would be thousands and thousands of geese, ducks and swans that arrive here from Russia every winter.

In Holland they have decided to put all their chickens and turkeys etc indoors before the migratory birds arrive. The newspapers are full of panic- causing articles. I will read yours Marie.
