    We must all realize, that a rouge nation, who hates America, can obtain the technology to
    administer a Swine flu, or Sars virus, and release such Viruses in America.
    What is the American millitary doing about such a situation.?

    March 25, 2013 - U.S. researchers have discovered a class of potent chemical compounds that could stop a host of viruses in their tracks, including the deadly Marburg and Ebola viruses and pathogens that cause rabies, mumps and measles. Drugs made from the compounds would stop infection by interfering with a virus’ ability to reproduce itself inside human cells.

    Thanks, Walt! That's wonderful news on the healthcare front! That could also lead to giving the common cold the boot without exhausting all yer money on hyper Vitamin C! (which leads to dependence or get scurvy after dependence is established, then dosage is withdrawn)
