Hmm... Yeah that's another thing I don't like- they changed the name because everybody thought that the virus was attainable (obtainable?) by eating pork. So as a result, the pork industry suffered, and thus the name "Swine Flu" was changed to "H1N1". What could be more messed up?

*sigh* What's the world coming to?

You're fine Giardia , no need to worry!

PS: yeah, I was kind of lazy to pull out the dictionary to find the correct spelling of... that one word...
