Worried About the Swine Flu?

Are the news reports causing you to have great alarm regarding the current outbreak of swine flu? I think reading the following article by Dr. Mercola will help put things in a much calmer perspective:

On June 11 the World Health Organization (WHO) warned 194 member nations to expect up to 1/3 of the population to be infected with the swine flu. However they also reinforced that this is a mild illness in the majority of cases.

The KEY here is to recognize that absolutely nothing has changed from when I first posted my major update on Swine Flu on April 29 that has now been viewed over one million times.

This promotion to Stage Six is still fear mongering, plain and simple. While it certainly qualifies for a pandemic in the strict definition of the term, they are using that term to instill fear in the population.

All a pandemic implies is that the infection is spread across the world...

To read this article in its entirety, please go straight to Dr. Mercola's website. In the article he also links to some previous things he has written recently on the swine flu which are worthwhile reading.
