waxbeans: GrogSmash: waxbeans: Lance Robdon: It's okay, everyone. It won't be a threat if we all just collectively agree to not eat any more pork ever again.  We can survive without bacon, can we not?  CAN WE NOT?!?

Wait.
ROFLMAO.
Maybe this is the real reason pork is prohibited in ancient religions.

(Runs)

They are omnivores.  Which means they typically carry a number of nasty parasites.  Some priests figured out a long time ago that eating such beasties was a bad idea...

?
That was what I was saying.

But, while saying that.
Slipped a little poke in, too. Friendly poke in the ribs.
Mmmmm ribs.


Sorry.  Been that kibd of day.

And fark you.  Now I want ribs.  And a side of bbq'd bacon wrapped asparagus.

Elegy: Wonder why all these novel coronavirus and avian flu diseases always come from China?

[Fark user image 425x351]
[Fark user image 425x178]

That's farking why. Shopping in a slaughter house is more common than shopping in a supermarket in some places. When half the city tromps through the slaughterhouse to make their purchases, you get a lot of novel viral mutations that cross the species barrier.

China has been told to clean up their wet markets for farking decades. Increasing urbanization is only going to make it worse, and it's pretty farking evident the area this point the wet markets are a global threat.


Yup. Most diseases come from animals... which comes from humans close to animals... which happens in poor countries.

China is doing this, Mexico is doing this... most of the world is doing this. Until we fix this shiat worldwide, we'll always have pandemics and new diseases.

If we werent stupid humans, instead of wasting money on the military, we would invest our ressources into modernizing poor countries so people wouldnt live in shiathole conditions so this kind of crap wouldnt happen... the only ones living near animals would be those who ''grow'' them... the chances of diseases jumping species would go down by a billion fold.

They didn't mention how serious the symptoms are and it sounds like the current flu vaccines can adapted easily enough. Seems like non-starter.
