Swine Flu – But What About Bacon and Eggs?

PlusShould We Be Afraid of Swine Flu?

While the professionals provide us with statistics about Mexico, Texas, California or other places where patients have contracted swine flu, I actually find I have different questions all together:

  • I don’t live in Mexico. Am I at risk for getting swine flu?
  • Will my seasonal flu shot protect me?
  • I’ve never met a pig in person and don’t expect I’ll meet one anytime soon. Should I be worried about getting flu from a pig?
  • And what about my favorite Sunday breakfast – bacon and eggs?

So I went in search of the answers, believing that if I have those questions, you might too.  So I put them together in an article along with their answers: Swine Flu FAQs

And as for breakfast?  Very crispy please.

    if the Swine Flu is anything like the other scares and outbreaks in the US, it shouldn’t amount to much (I’m hoping anyway)
