    The disease isn't. The timing on it being mentioned again in the media and the "90,000 possible deaths" (which is just speculation) from it is.

    But the mail online article that came from "leaked" info conflicts with this report from a source I actually am familiar with and trust: Swine Flu Vaccine Seems Safe in Early Trials - US News and World Report

    Regular Flu Kills 36,000 Americans Every Year | The Blog of Record

    In 2009, CDC published additional estimates of flu-related deaths comparing different methods, including the methods used in the 2003 JAMA study. The seasons studied included the 1993-94 through the 2002-03 flu seasons. Results from this study showed that during this time period, 36,171 flu-related deaths occurred per year, on average.

    Every single year there's some new horrible disease that the media says is going to kill us all. Remember SARS and Avian Flu? Fact is, Americans were more likely to die from vending machines falling on them than swine flu during the whole scare. If they have a vaccine in production, great, don't see why not, but the whole scare was just silly

    I don't doubt it, a bit. But, I'm a little more informed than your average bear.

    "This is obviously a cause for concern and requires a heightened state of alert," said President Obama. "But it is not a cause for alarm."
