    4. Pigs don’t fly, so how did these virus strains mix without outside intervention? There is more to this swine flu than we are being told, and I will not be surprised if it is some biological warfare experiment gone wrong. At least the crazy poultry culling that avian flu caused has ceased. Are pigs being culled at all?

    5. Nice post on swine flu. Home remedies for swine flu have been shown to not only fight and reduce the symptoms, but can help in the prevention of swine flu.Garlic is considered an effective antiviral. Chew fresh garlic cloves (2-3) once everyday.
