It's about the swine flu?
I've never heard of the swine fly til now. I'm kinda concerned about it, but my parents aren't, including my dad.

Is the swine flu anything to worry about or are they just mentioning it as the swine flu to scare us?

It's simply a different flu strain than what we're used to. It was in the media as nothing more than a distraction. TB is what you should be concerned with. More cases already this year than whats been seen in a LONG time, but you wont see that on the news because that crosses the line between distraction and panic.

It's scary because so many people die from it. So far people have to get it from someone else who has it (this strain isn't coming from pigs so they have actually changed the name). We have cures for many things and they now think that they have a cure for this flu too. Unfortunately so many people have it in so many countries that the vaccines are hard to come by. If no one in your area has it, then you are probably safe as long as you don't leave your area. I posted a link in the source to the World Health Organization, they are in charge of everything to do with this flu.
Be careful with some of the other answers because they are spreading lies. People, including normally heathly teens, have died from it. The CDC is not in charge of this flu. It is in almost every country and that is why the World Health Organization is in charge. The WHO is the ones who declared it a pandemic.

naww dont worrry!! its just like the normal flu except its from pigs =) everyone who has had it has survived!! nothing to worry about

Mr Anderson
Some facts for ya:
1) They are not fatal
2) You can recover from the swine flu
3) It spreads to others
Now the problem is the spreading of the virus, not the people dying cos they dont die from swine flu

i think its an exageration of the regular flu

You say your kinda concerned and that shows wisdom.

No it is not being mentioned to scare you.

Yes be concerned. This is a good motivator to get yourself educated so there is no fear or stress. Don't let the media spin or lack of info cause you stress just educate yourself and go on with a healthy fun summer.

You can follow CDC recommendations so you are better informed.

I would use this time to build my immune system.
What You Can Do to Stay Healthy
Stay informed. This website will be updated regularly as information becomes available.
Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing or sneezing of infected people.
Take everyday actions to stay healthy.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
Stay home if you get sick. CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.
Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.
Find healthy ways to deal with stress and anxiety.

its just a form of the flu carried by swine aka pigs and yea its the big scary thing of NOW but it will fade

The media tends to make issues look huge, for publicity sake. Its like...
The swine flu is out there no doubt, but don't get so worked up about it. Its ridiculous seeing people wearing masks out of no where. Its okay to be safe, but its not worth change your whole life over.

Theres nothing to be worried about. When it first got real "serious" in May I was really concerned&freaked out, but now I'm not, and I havent gotten Swine Flu. I seriously used to stay inside all day coz I was so scared. Its just an exaggeration/the media is trying to scare us.

The swine flu is absolutely something to worrying about. If you don't want to take my word for it, go to this link http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/ The CDC has officially declared a pandemic, and the United States alone has upwards of 21,000 reported cases.

Swine flu is less of a problem than normal flu.
But there is a reason some people are worrying.
The Spanish Influenza (spanish flu) went around the world once and did nothing, just made people cough. But then it mutated and started becoming a serious health risk. Then it mutated again and did nothing.
So some people are afraid because it's POSSIBLE that the swine flu will mutate and start killing poeple, though it isn't that likely.

Hope that helps.
