Prices To Skyrocket As Bird Flu Epidemic Becoming Critical

from Gov’t Slaves:

Wisconsin’s poultry farms are under a state of emergency, declared this past week by Gov. Scott Walker. National Guard forces are helping as avian flu spreads. As of late Tuesday, yet another Wisconsin turkey flock had been decimated with the H5 avian influenza virus – an 87,000-bird turkey flock in Chippewa County. As of that date, there were four known cases of the virus in Wisconsin, according to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. The latest count shows more than 7 million poultry affected across the Midwest, with numerous farms added to the list each day. Iowa has destroyed millions of chickens, and Minnesota, which has also declared a state of emergency, has also destroyed millions of birds. Sunday, the Minnesota National Guard was called up in an attempt to contain the epidemic.

Meanwhile the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta is scrambling to study the family of viruses to determine if a spread to humans is likely. Poultry workers are now being tested for the virus, and the CDC is recommending disinfecting all property and persons who have been around poultry. While transmission of avian flu from birds to humans has been rare in the United States, it has happened in Asia and Africa. The current strains are highly pathogenic strains of bird flu, meaning they are deadly to birds – and could possibly affect humans.

    Funny thought about “un-intended consequences”. If some form of the bird flu almost wipes out the poultry industry and chicken becomes almost extinct (or costs $300 for a bucket of chicken).. then the consequence will be……..

    Catfish will become extinct TOO.. or it will become $300 per plate too.

    Who eats the most chicken? What will be the backup choice? Yep. No chicken? eat catfish.

    It’s not the diseases that will eliminate the catfish,, it’s the chicken eaters who will devour all the catfish. Sorry,, but that’s just the way the restaurant menu will happen.

    Swine Flu will kill the pork,, (no more Ribs, bacon, or pork chops).

    Bird Flu will kill the birds (and wipe out the catfish).

    It looks like we may eventually become a lot more vegetarian.

    When I first saw this headline: “Prices To Skyrocket As Bird Flu Epidemic Becoming Critical”, I felt like it was 2009, all over again, and they were trying to force (Swine) Flu vaccines on the entire American population! (during Obama’s first full year in office, by the way) I actually thought to myself: “Man, Sean (of SGT Report) must have quite a sense of humor! Wasn’t the entire Swine Flu thing traced to an outbreak in Mexico, that researchers discovered was a concoction of bird flu, swine flue, and human flu?

    “What seems suspicious to me is the hybrid origin of the viral fragments found in H1N1 influenza,” writes Mike Adams. These viral fragments include human influenza, bird flu from North America, and swine flu from Europe and Asia.

    This is rather astonishing to realize, because for this to have been a natural combination of viral fragments, it means an infected bird from North America would have had to infect pigs in Europe, then be re-infected by those some pigs with an unlikely cross-species mutation that allowed the bird to carry it again, then that bird would have had to fly to Asia and infected pigs there, and those Asian pigs then mutated the virus once again (while preserving the European swine and bird flu elements) to become human transmittable, and then a human would have had to catch that virus from the Asian pigs — in Mexico! — and spread it to others.”

    This particular strain of Bird Flu, may be a naturally-occurring strain of bird flu. However, past events should give us pause to consider that it may also have been introduced by some human agency.
