Health authorities approve pork

Post by yusuf on Sat Nov 07, 2009 5:36 pm

The A-H1N1 flu's combination of human and swine genes has sparked some people to fear for their pets' health and eating meat.

Chinese health authorities downplayed the risk of eating pork, saying the virus is eliminated at normal cooking temperatures.

Experts explained that pigs operates as a viral "mixing vessel" for the exchange of genetic material. Such an event could lead to changes in the genetic makeup of the virus, or create a new, less severe virus.

Health experts and vets in China are closely monitoring the mutation of the virus to minimize the impact on humans.
