    Scientists pause research with lab-bred bird flu
    Fears raised over lab-bred strains


    WASHINGTON - Scientists who created easier-to-spread versions of the deadly bird flu said yesterday that they are temporarily halting more research, as international specialists debate what should happen next.

    Researchers from leading flu laboratories around the world signed onto the voluntary moratorium, published yesterday in the journals Science and Nature.

    What the scientists called a “pause’’ comes amid fierce controversy over how to handle research that is high-risk but potentially could bring a big payoff. Two labs - at Erasmus University in the Netherlands and the University of Wisconsin Madison - created the new viruses while studying how bird flu might mutate to become a bigger threat to people.


    The US government funded the work but last month urged the teams not to publicly reveal the exact formula so that would-be bioterrorists could not copy it

    Oh ok, the US Gov't URGES them not to reveal how it was made. I feel so safe now. :uhoh3:

    Translation: Al Qaida probably already has it.

    EDIT: The Al Qaida the the US controls.

    For those of you that are just now learning that the US is funding Bio weapons research, you do realize that Bird Flu PROBABLY ISN'T the first one right?

    Now you have to think about what else may have already been made and used and where!

    It's no conspiracy theory, it's reality.

    I'm not going to click on to the site, you tell me what the u-tube babe said. If you make a case about bio-terrorism and cite "leading flu labs" the reasonable assumption is that the "leading flu labs" ain't in the business of fighting the bugs, they are in the business of making bigger and better strains of the bug.

    these are the the types of folk we are trusting to respomed to the governments... urgings



    The company was involved in several controversies. In 2001, malfunctioning dialysis machines resulted in several deaths; in 2008 the company supplied contaminated heparin; in 2009 lethal H5N1 avian flu virus was delivered to laboratories across Europe mixed with seasonal influenza vaccines; also, the company was charged with excessive billing of Kentucky Medicaid.

    Accidental infection is one thing but your point seems to center around "scientists who created easier to spread versions of the bird flu". These are shocking allegations and when you add the fact that other "flu labs" are halting research you make a serious conspiracy charge.
