H5N1: Histrionic-5, Neurotic 1nsanity

The bird flu scare just gets crazier and crazier. Now Bush wants to allocate $7.1 billion to protect us from an event that occurs once every 100 years or so, by stockpiling $1.2 billion worth of a symptomatic alleviator (see Flu, Tammy) with a shelf life of perhaps 5 years (Tamiflu).

With 62 human bird flu-caused deaths thus far from this H5N1 virus here's what we've learned--about 0.0000008% of the world's population has died from bird flu. Humans show remarkable resistant. About half of those infected live. Human to human transmission is still a missing element.

Viruses are notorious for wreaking their havoc on people with compromised immune systems secondary to having poor nutritional status. Death from influenza decreased by 90% from 1900 to about 1950 as hygiene and nutrition improved. A 300% increase in influenza vaccination rates from 1950 through 2000 had negligible effect on the death rate.

Relative to the world's population Americans are mostly healthy. Wash your hands, eat your vegetables and cut back on sugar.

Bush should step into the Rose Garden and encourage farmers to let the land rest every 7th year as the Bible describes, ramp up organically grown products, stop injecting hormones into animals destined for the butcher, and apologize for spending our money like a 5-year-old in a Toys 'R' Us on Christmas Eve.

Expect the pandemic scare to be an annual event. Who wants to let $1.2 billion worth of Tamiflu expire in a warehouse.
