I don't eat much chicken anyway. So why eat chicken at all if many other things taste like chicken, just sculpt your food and add food coloring (not in that order) and you get a chicken substitute, yum, gov't substitutes, they taste good
Saying that any two humans are exactly alike is like saying republicans have morals

quoted from health minister: "actually it doesn't matter whether you have to eat chicken if you've cooked it properly because this H5N1 virus is easy to die in high temperature..want a proof? this is the proof...'nyam..nyam'...(he ate the chicken)"

So? agree with him or not?? :lol:

My biochemistry professor told that this was nothing to worry about. As long as you stay away from wildbirds, you'll be fine.

@Ozge
What you do today will have consequences tomorrow :lol: :lol: :lol:
By the way, i eat chicken too. The probability of diing killed by a horse is mathematically bigger than that of diing of the H5N1 virus...

It is the same thing because, as farmers have more contact with both animals, the relation between them does not change..

So, the conclusion is, we don't have to worry in eating fried chicken in the fastfood restaurant...because H5N1 is easily die because of heat.... :lol:
Case closed...or it hasn't? :lol:

You do have things to worry about if you eat in fast-food restaurants but none of them are H5N1. I saw on the news that they sell meat that has gone bad to fast food restaurants for less money than the good meat. So, my advice, if you do go to eat at a fast-food restaurant, go to a world famous one(McDonald's, KFC, Burger King etc)because there you could at least be sure you eon't get food poisoning...

I saw on the news that in an avian flu epidemics so much as 1.5 bilion people can die. That is a bit extra very hyper exagerated if you ask me, but anyway, they say that if it does reach a form that will be passable from human to human, we will be in big trouble. That is why so many people are buying flu vaccines these days.

@victor
So for you, a virology dude, this news is actually fascinating, right?


when the h5n1 strain can mutate with human flu virus to what extent do you think the vacc would be effective? can it save us ? Do we need to vacc against each strain? would it be possible in pandemic situation.
tell me........

I have just read some Pharmacology books today and it said that Cuinolon used as the base form of an antiviral agents, but for the vaccine..I don't think that they've discovered it....
