Have no fear. Eating pig meat will not give you swine flu. The disease is passed through the air and into your mouth, eyes, and nose. It is a respiratory disease. It is influenza with the name of swine flu and has nothing to do with pigs. [Actually it is called swine flu because it was originally a disease among pigs.-KDK]Since it has swine in the name, people have stopped eating pork, which is hurting the pork industry and the economy even more than before. Prevent this by calling the influenza the H1N1, which is the medical name. Also, eat pork, bacon, ham etc. to help the pork industry.
