    Bird flu pandemic!
    Hey guys, have you heard about the possibility of bird flu mutating and being spread from human to human?? I'm paralysed with fear every time I let myself think of such a disaster.. what would the world become if such a thing happens?? Do you take Tamiflu or Relenza as precautions? Or do you keep these in stock? Just tell me please... I've read several articles on the net which made me very aware of bird flu virus!

    While the issue is nothing to simply dismiss, it's not something to get worked up into a paranoia charade about. If you want to keep an antiviral like oseltamivir on-hand, that's fine, but there is no reason to be taking it now.
