    This story is almost enough to make me a vegetarian. We take things out of nature, not knowing where they have been or what they have eated. It was good to see that the hunting party was at least using the papers to test the blood. I should be more thankful to the FDA.

    This makes you wonder just how many other diseases are out there to cross from animal to human. It may be we are going to see a whole new community of diseases in this century than we have seen before.

    It's the mother nature’s way of telling us that there are too many of us, and we need to scale it back a bit.
    It's amazing and worrying! Forest animals are a reservoir of viruses. The food shortages could bring about the next pandemic.
    And such pandemics have arrived here in large cities. Maybe malaria, AIDS, Dengue fever or swine flu.

    Very interesting story.

    I definitely remember this virus thing from PIP2. It got a lot of flak because they said AIDS started in Africa and people from there weren't too happy about that.

    So does you all bringing this back up mean that you all are working on the next PIP or what?
