"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Michael Greger, MD, author "Bird Flu: A Virus of Our Own Hatching" joins Thom Hartmann. Fortunately - most of those suffering from the flu this year will fully recover from it. However - what if that wasn't the case. What if millions of Americans - and billions of people worldwide - contracted a strain of the flu - and all died? Over the better part of the past two decades - a killer straing of avian influenza has been ravaging Asia, Europe the Middle East and even Africa. While the deadly strain has mostly affected only birds up to this point - there are increasing concerns that it could become the world's next great pandemic. So - if you think that the bird flu is only a concern for poultry and wildlife - then everything you know is wrong.
