Hate To Say We Told You So ...

Swine flu may be a lab error: Aussie researcher:
The World Health Organisation is investigating a claim by an Australian researcher that the swine flu virus circling the globe may have been created as a result of human error.

Adrian Gibbs, 75, who collaborated on research that led to the development of Roche's Tamiflu drug, said in an interview that he intends to publish a report suggesting the new strain may have accidentally evolved in eggs scientists use to grow viruses and drugmakers use to make vaccines. Gibbs said he came to his conclusion as part of an effort to trace the virus's origins by analysing its genetic blueprint.

''The sooner we get to grips with where it's come from, the safer things might become,'' Gibbs said by phone from Canberra. ''It could be a mistake'' that occurred at a vaccine production facility or the virus could have jumped from a pig to another mammal or a bird before reaching humans, he said.

Gibbs and two colleagues analysed the publicly available sequences of hundreds of amino acids coded by each of the flu virus's eight genes. He said he aims to submit his three-page paper today for publication in a medical journal.

This very concept was brought to light in a recent Coast To Coast AM episode (April 27th 2009) > Appearing in the latter half of the show, Alex Jones and Stephen Quayle both agreed the new swine virus was not natural. It's a "genetically altered bioweapon," possibly being "beta-tested in the field".... Start thinking outside the square.

Something A Little Less Serious ...

Do yourself a favour. Stop what your doing. Go here now and enjoy.
