Apparently trousers are more likely to kill you than you ever being involved in a plane crash. :mrgreen:

Governments around the world may have wasted billions of dollars stockpiling a flu drug that doesn't work. A study published in the British Medical Journal found NO evidence that the drug- Tamilflu-lowers the risk of flu complications. Doctor Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of the BMJ , says this case shows that the enti...re system of evaluating drugs needs radical reform. And also, RT's Aleksey Yaroshevsky reports from Ukraine's capital Kiev where Tamiflu has already been at the centre of a scandal.

And at most, been shown to take just under 6 hours off an illness even when given within 48 hours. 20% chance of sickness and 15% of hallucinating, no thanks.

We found out on Tuesday that our personal tutor, Claire has got it and we have her on Thursday's mornings so now we don't know whether Specialist is going to be cancelled or someone going to cover it as it only half day tomorrow. Hopefully not though, it's the last day and I've got cards to give out!

How is the swine flu different from a regular flu? I was just wondering how is the swine flu different from a regular flu. Its a type of flu so how is it deadly.

This wasn't made as a distraction, actually, the opposite.

This was made to milk money from the people, during the bad economy, while the goverment still has a excuse to do it.
