H1N1 Leads to "Pig" Discrimination
Health Officials have been scrambling since last week to contain the outbreak of the H1N1 virus also known as the "swine flu," a name that has sparked a controversy in itself. Many Americans have been "dumping" the pork from their diets, some saying that due to the fact that the flu originates among the pig population they are giving up pork. The spike in N1H1 cases throughout the world has not only made it a pandemic, but certain countries like Egypt have passed legislation to kill hundreds of thousands of pigs; which speaks to the fact that not only Americans are giving up the pork. Is it fair to the pig that it is being taken off of the menu of many people? Regardless of the "discrimination" against the pig, American Officials are standing up and defending the eating of pork, saying that it is ok to still eat pork even under the grip of the H1N1 flu virus. With that said; tonight I may have a pork BLT, and I will pray over the 109 current cases floating throughout the United States.
