I have two types of masks for myself and family.

I have the disposable N-95 masks and enough to last a few months for each of us. This is for everyday use, going to work and so on, if the virus comes here locally.

If it becomes an outright pandemic situation on a scale seen in 1918, I also have full bio-hazard body suits, complete with facial shields and double filtered P-100 paticulate masks. You can think I'm nuts if you like, but I still say the best way to deal with this flu, is simply not to catch it.

Mike Adams NaturalNews site is one of my most trusted sources of health related news, far more likely to be at least closer to the truth than the media establishment.

There is no approved vaccine for TB in the US....

BCG vaccine is used in many foreign countries but is not generally recommended for use in the US

My point is...if one is so worried about TB, then it stands to reason that he or she would get vaccinated.

Speaking of a vaccine, the goverment claims they are working on one for this swine flu and it could be ready in 4-6 months. Who here would opt for such a vaccine, assuming one is developed. With the history of many rushed vaccines proving to cause death and permanent nuerological conditions, would you still take a chance?

I wouldn't take one, only for the sheer reason that I wouldn't want to seem greedy. If there is a vaccine soon, it will probably be in limited amounts and it should go to the communities that have had cases.

Also, would healthcare providers give coverage for such a vaccine? That would make up a lot of people's minds depending on the answer.

Default article about a lady's 5 kids having it

Mom worries as swine flu hits 5 in N.Y. family - Swine flu- msnbc.com


interesting to note that the article goes on to say :Everyone at Civitano’s house is recovering now. That appears to be one hallmark of this virus: a sudden onset and an equally sudden easing of symptoms, she said.

Wow, that's like having a bullet-proof vest for a game of paintball.

Take off and nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
