Viruses Change The World

by Rachel Gertz

Got a bug? Chances are it came from a pig or a chicken. And I guess that’s not such a big deal except that pigs and chickens are practically blood brothers now, hunkering down inside crates on big agricultural farms where their little limbs rot off and they sing the blues. Okay, I’m exaggerating. They can’t really sing.

Anyway, viruses are getting trickier and trickier all thanks to these new viral pairings.

Best watch and double dose on that vitamin C.
