H1 N1 May Help Kill Other Flu Viruses – Good From Bad?  Cornwall Ontario – January 4, 2010

First H1N1 is bad, but now it may be good?   According to Scientists and Doctors H1N1, like other pandemic type viruses are so strong that they may actually weaken or destroy other nasty bugs that could impact our health.

“In the wake of this pandemic, flu vaccine could be easier to make or could cover more targets. A tricky problem of drug resistance could disappear. And the toll influenza takes on the elderly could conceivably ease, at least for awhile.”

In simple terms, during the pandemics of the 20th century – 1918, 1957 and 1968 – the new virus snuffed out its viral predecessor.

“If this pandemic virus were to replace seasonal strains, either H3(N2) or H1(N1), that may be a blessing in disguise,” says Dr. Danuta Skowronski, an influenza epidemiologist at the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control.”

Either way it sounds like this is a great time to own shares in the company that makes flu vaccines.   Have you had the H1N1 Flu shot or the regular shot?

What do you think Cornwall?
