The Swine Flu Again - It's Kind of Like Recycling

No, the vaccine itself is not what's recycled. It's the whole rigmarole. In the late 1970s it was pretty much limited to America; thirty years later it extends to the entire globe! Of course, we should be following healthy hygiene - washing hands after using the toilet and before eating, to name the most obvious. But am I the only one that thinks with every change of the season, some new "fatal disease" will put an end to a large number of the world population is going a bit extreme?

The following clips are from a U.S. television program called, Sixty Minutes on the swine flu vaccine debacle in the late 1970s.

Something that can help a great deal with bacteria and overall hygiene is the bathroom bidet sprayer from It is so refreshing and convenient for general use and can be installed without a plumber. Will pay for itself many times over in toilet paper savings = and great for the environment.
