CDC: Beware of Pigs as More Catch Swine Flu



Swine flu is in the news again:

Los Angeles Times -3 August 2012
The US Centers for Disease Control has words of caution for people planning to attend a local fair this summer: Watch out for sick pigs, which could be infected with the H3N2 swine influenza virus.
On Friday, the health agency reported 12 new cases of human infection with a variant of the virus, which until now had been detected in just 17 Americans since July 2011.

Swine flu is an issue from time to time.  We will see how serious it gets this Summer, Fall, and Winter.

Relatively soon, serious pestilences are prophesied as they are part of what Jesus called “the beginning of sorrows”:

7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:7-8)

If humans quit eating pigs, the “swine flu” problem would probably go away.  But since many still do, it is possible that something more serious may happen.
