Further defense of the Chinese H1N1 – H5N1 study

17 May 2013

Robert Herriman of The Global Dispatch interviewed me this week on the H1N1 – H5N1 reassortant study that has been in the headlines:

There was much written concerning the research published earlier this month in Science, where researchers from China’s Harbin Veterinary Research Institute reported creating an  avian H5N1 (highly pathogenic) and pandemic 2009 H1N1 (easily transmissible) hybrid, that according to them, achieved airborne spread between guinea pigs.

    I’ve read the article. I’ve learned so much from it. Anyway, I’m just curious why those new influenza viruses arise from animals. Also, what are the causes that make these viruses mutate rapidly? Is global warming responsible for this?

    Check this out!

    you avoid the discussion with the other experts, instead you discuss with
    journalists and non-virologists

    Or they avoid it, I don’t know. But it is important, that discussion is
    needed and it doesn’t really happen.

    Instead experts give interviews to journalists, or write papers, or
    sometimes

    do talk shows addressed to a wide non-expert audience.

    But I think discussion in internet, in blogs or better forums is
    superior.

    You can quote and reply directly point by point,

    you can add charts,pics,links, you can reply when you want, you can edit
    it,

    others can comment, search links,elaborate,summarize

    Well said, GSGS. The virus is mutating rapidly
    and already has two of five genetic changes believed to be necessary for
    human-to-human transmission according to the scientists.

    Eat a lot of lean proteins; opt for lean cuts of beef, boneless and skinless turkey and chicken breasts, and fish.

    Proteins are essential to build muscle.

    An add to in your lean muscle mass causes your body’s metabolic rate to rise; as a effect, you are able to burn fat more readily.http://howtofatlose.com/pregnancy-fat/
