should we avoid eating pig products because of the swine flu ?
okay, i eat ham sandwiches everyday at school for lunch, but now im thinking of switching to turkey because of the swine fl, just to be safe, should we avoid eating anything that comes from pig untill this passes over ?

no, just make sure you cooked it before you eat it!
by heating it you kill alll germs and bacteria living on it!

yah you can thats fine in the u.s just not mexico

pork is not good for people to eat as it is. but the gov wont say anything it would put pig farmers and every one down the line out of buisness.

moped mama
you are what you eat but swine is not unless its not cooked properly its in the air you breathe wash hands get OCD about hand washing is key ..

No not at all! As long as the pork is thoroughly cooked, you should be fine.

no it has nothing to do with pigs its with chickens and birds. thats also why they call it the BIRD flu.

any pork is still fine. the name "swine flu" has nothing to do with the disease coming from pigs.

I doubt that someone would slaughter a poor piggy if they had swine flu. Poor piggy... tasty bacon. (=

Come onn noowww, the swine flu is like any other flu, it has nothing to deal with the meat. Don't we humans get cold flu? It's true we dont eat each other, but still it's a fluu.. LOGICC PEOPLEE

NO if you cook them it will stop the flu we should all eat more as long as its cooked first

No, eating ham, pork, bacon, any pig products is perfectly safe.

Swine flu passes through shareing things, not having good heigene, and it can be airborne. but you cant get it through pig products so ive heard.

Eating any pig related products will not get you infected with the swine flu. Although, contact with a live and kicking pig will put you at risk.

Dr. Who?
You cannot get the swine flu by eating pig, and even if that were possible, by the time you finished cooking the meat the virus would have been burned out.

You can still eat ham/pork/pig/etc.

The flu is not transmitted by what we are eating. It is transmitted from person to person. You should avoid being sneezed on or coughed on. by anyone.

My name is Ria
You cannot catch Swine Flu from eating cooked pork or pig products.

(: KP :)
You cannot get the swine flu from pig products. It's a human-to-human thing. You should change anyway because ham has a lot of sodium in it.

Personally, I am staying away from pig products right now because it freaks me out to think that this thing that I am eating had the swine flu.


no I think we should avoid eating pig products because theyr'e gross

Swine flu or not, I will never stop eating pork.

You wont catch the swine flu from pigs because the virus is one that is communicable through human-to-human contact. This virus has origins genetically from both pigs and birds, The swine virus mutates so that it can infect humans and be spread by humans. Unlike swine flu, Avian flu so far has had difficulty infecting humans unless they are exposed intensely to birds. Avian flu has not mutated in a way that makes it transmissible by humans to other humans.

The new swine flu virus apparently spreads just like regular flu and become airborne if infected person cough or sneeze without covering their nose and mouth, sending germs into the air. The virus is transmitted by saliva or droplets of sneezing from an infected person. You could pick up germs directly from an infected person, or by touching an object they recently touched, and then touching your eyes, mouth, or nose, delivering their germs for your own infection. Infected people can start spreading flu germs up to a day before symptoms start, and for up to seven days after getting sick, according to the CDC.

It is not a so-called foodborne illness. Bacon, ham and other pork products are safe to eat, assuming they are prepared properly. An internal temperature of 160 degrees for cooked meat will kill any bacteria or virus. Eating pork will not give you swine flu any more than eating chicken will give you bird flu.
