The 2-3 year supervirus is mostly overhyping and general misinformation, as I said in my other post. Very rarely does it actually come true. To prove this further, I believe our last REAL disease problem was back in 1979. That's a long time to wait for a new bug. It's not as common as people think. Also, if we look at the deathtoll of the past three "supervirus problemes" the highest one is in the 10-20 range. Looking at the overall population, this isn't a large number. Looking at the percentage of the population that it affects is also quite small. When mother nature strikes with a real supervirus, the number is usually at least in the hundreds...

The 1918 spanish flu was the major killer of the 20th century. Nothing has compared in awhile including this one and the bird flu, they don't have the same genetics that made the spanish flu so bad a$$. I believe it will be a retrovirus or is it rihnovirus, that will do us in until we adapt. It has happened before, the genetic blueprint for a ancient one is still being copied in our DNA, it is not active nor can it be.

Actually, no. The 1918 flu was deadly, sure. But it burned out quickly and went away. The actual main killer of the 20th century...Is Smallpox and Measles. In 2000 alone world wide, Measles claimed nearly 800,000 lives. Smallpox is responsible for at least 300 million deaths in the entirety of the 20th century. That flu was deadly, but not so much because of its power, but due to world war one and the troop movements. On September 11, 1918 Washington D.C. admitted the flu was in the city, the very next day almost 13 million men swarmed on the place, to enlist for the draft. The only reason the Spanish Flu was so dangerous is because people had the "if we ignore it, it will go away" outlook. But it didn't go away. This flu killed people the most who were 20-29 years of age, it was unusual, but it makes sense because of the way it killed. It drowned people. Stronger people's immune systems went into overdrive and that is what killed them.

The Spanish Flu burned out on its own. It did alot of damage, but it only lasted a short time. Smallpox was so dangerous they actually had to eradicate it, and to this day it is the only virus that mankind has actually gotten rid of....but I am sure it's not completely gone.

Or how about TB? Did you know that Tuberculosis was once the leading cause of death in the United States? Every year eight million people die from this. It is believed that currently a third of the world's population is infected with this bacteria...oh, and its  becoming more and more resistant to medicine.


This swine flu is nothing more then four days of misery. It acts as any flu does and has in the past. The only thing that is scary about it is the media backing it has behind it. The hysteria of the virus, actually spreads faster then the virus does. The Flu, by nature isnt meant to last. AIDS is a Pandemic that has been going on since..well that is debatable. People say the 30's is when it first jumped to humans, but how many news stories do you hear about that? Me, not lately...Why..because if you get it, you knew better.

So saying the Flu Pandemic of 1918 was the main killer of the 20th century...I would have to disagree. One of the worst ones in such a short amount of time, yes. If it lasted for years it would be the main one, but it didn't.

Ah, I forgot about small pox and measles. But I thought it was polio virus that we almost wiped out. I didn't mention TB because we are talking about viruses.

Like I was saying I think a virus from the  same genus as the HIV virus will do us in.

Nah, if any virus will do us all in it will be man made, because it will have to target humans specifically, and you know humanity, when we make something, we make it deadly.  Nature = Crowd Control, Humanity = Extinction.

Well I personally believe due to the traits that I am aware of that belong to this pandemic I would say this is not only a repeating disease but also a mutating disease. This poses problems because we may clear things up but not know that animals begin carrying it and mutating it, in which case the virus will resurface again, and again

this thing will become a very serious threat unless we find out the dynamics behind it and make an efficient effort to prevent it from harming us

  Not so serious, any natural virus can be fought off by all but the young and old.  You see the cold, the flu, and all of our other dreaded viruses are always mutating, changing.  They do this because like us they wish to also survive.  They may kill a few, but they will never be able to kill all.  No my friend, a natural virus does little to inspire any kind of fear in me, It's the stuff they make in labs I find treating.

Actually I heard the swine flu is more dangerous to young adults because of the stronger immune system. From what I've heard, the virus makes your own immune system turn against you, much like AIDS would render your immune system useless.

(i might be wrong, though, but that's what I heard from 2 different sources)
Seek not beauty in battle. Seek not beauty in death. Consider not your own life. If you wish to protect that which must be protected, then strike when your opponent's back is turned.

My mom works at a hospital, and she said, the swine flu goes for not only younger people, but also older ones who are more at risk. She said depending on how your immune system is, some can fight it off, but most die from it, and death is more likely in the younger and older ones.

Oh, ok! Thanks for clearing things up, I was starting to get confused as to what exactly the virus does :-P

  And all of that substantiates my point.  Only the young and the old need have to worry, Oh we would get sick, no doubt, but it would not kill us.

well in case you all didn't know this disease does in fact attack much more than the young and old, and whoever said that it turns your immune system against you is correct, I was advised to be careful because I have diabetes and this flu can kill me within days. The list of endangered people sent out by my province( Ontario) was actually quite large

it seems if there is any falter in your immune system at all you are in treacherous waters. This flu (swine) is misleading because it actually didn't come from pigs at all it has the same properties as the last swine flu however doctors have already determined is that it was a bio-weapon

if you look at the records you will see that within hours of each other there were 3 points where there was breakout (Mexico, Egypt, Iran) this i do not see could possibly be a coincidence because the only other explanation is that it as an attack from the planet

they found out it was most likely a bio-weapon because they caught a strand of the virus in the U.S. and remarkably the virus takes a small amount of DNA from each thing it afflicts. it was traced to a Mexican child who had a syringe mark on his arm as well outside the injection point was traces of the virus.

wow how much has the swine flue killed in the entire world? not that much, and if it were killing by the thousands every 3 months or so i would be getting worried but there is nothing to worrie about,
