So the latest is..... no surprise that the pig producing state of Illinois ((producing over 8 Million pigs per year) is winning the league tables for confirmed cases of Swine flu (H1N1 flu)
Illinois now have 122 cases compared with New York's 97 cases.
The pig industry is keen to play down the risks and say there is "no health risk from eating Pork" but meanwhile 3,000 pigs have died in mysterious fires in factory pig farms since the Pig Flu outbreak ( Illinois Pig Farm Fires )
The word from the Pharmaceutical Industry is that we should be fairly safe for the summer the big dangers will be in the fall / Autumn 2009 when it's thought the virus could mutate again and we could be in serious trouble.
London Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston says " Make an appointment with a qualified Nutritionist for a full check up, tests, and then optimise your health and particularly your immune system so you have a fighting chance this winter. Particularly if you are at all stressed as adrenal stress uses up vast amounts of nutrients than can leave various functions in your body compromised"
Foods for Life Nutritionists can provide you with a personal emergency health management strategy to reduce risks should you have to travel and be in high risk situations.
