Posted on 06/11/2014 6:27:03 PM PDT by CorporateStepsister
Flu experts have made a mutant version of the 1918 Spanish flu virus that killed tens of millions of people, sparking a new debate over whether such work is too dangerous.
Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin says the experiments are important for helping scientists understand how new pandemics start, and for designing better flu vaccines.

I’ll say it: What can possibly go wrong?
There's something we need.
I wonder if Dr. Kawaoka knows about the fate of Gerald Bull.
Doesn’t the university exercise any oversight for these activities. They actually approved it?
Bring out your dead!
It’s an endangered species and EPA will protect it.
Please don’t give the EPA any ideas!
Obammy must be excited...
They killed 5 million Jews, what do you expect?
Finally— ‘Spanish fly’!
They need to start finding medicines to fight the infections that folks are getting from surgeries. There are people dying everyday from these infections because there are no medicines that will take care of the infections. They get blood and bladder infections and some end up going to the brain.
Surely it is a Govt grant!
It will be out in public before Zero leaves his wake of destruction.
I always liked the original with Arthur Hill
Thanks for the ping!
Here is a chart of the *major* natural mutations of H5N1 since it was discovered.
These mutations are happening in nature, and they will continue to happen. Eventually it is almost certain that they will come up with a form that is easily transmissible between humans.
Only if researchers can figure out what the pandemic murderous mutations are going to be before they happen naturally, do we have a chance to mitigate a plague like no other in human history.
Spanish flu virus created in Wisconsin lab...
