Thanks for this link, re [i]Bird Flu: a virus of our own hatching[/i] by Michael Greger.

Had a look at some of the chapters; seems over-excited - working towards the flu's gonna kill us all (or lots of us) scenario: so John Oxford liking it not real amazing, as among the folk who evidently build careers and reputations from scary flu stories.

Mentions re flu evolving in chickens - fair enough.
But then, seems no real consideration of flu also needing to evolve in humans: we aren't going to die from a pandemic chicken flu.

Any chickens who are reading should be scared - tho factory farmed chickens might think the flu could help put them out of their misery.
Readers who are humans should take with very large pinch of salt.
