Are you aware that 25 % of all egg production in the United States has currently been taken offline due to the bird flu problems? You aren’t hearing much about this in the mainstream media, but at this point bird flu has claimed the lives of 45 million chickens and turkeys in America. When this syory broke a month ago, the number of dead birds was sitting at about 20 million. In just 30 days, the death toll has risen by an astonishing 20 million. This is a serious problems and it is currently causing egg shortages around the country, and yet very few people seem to be concerned about this? Why is that?
And it isn’t just one strain of the bird flu virus that we are speaking about. Right now, there are 2 strains which are growing like wildfire.
Up to now, the H5N2 strain has hit the states of Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Arkansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Idaho, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin. It has also been recognized in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and British Columbia.
The H5N8 strain has not been doing rather as much damage yet, but it has been killing birds in California, Idaho, Indiana, Oregon and Washington.
Furthermore, Canadian officials have found that the H5N1 strain is growing in British Columbia.
This is the most severe bird flu outbreak in the record of North America, and it goes on to spiral out of control. Things have currently gotten so bad that some manufacturers are thinking about changing to “eggless eggs”…
America is confronting a major egg meltdown due to bird flu, authorities have warned.
They say 25 % of the country’s egg production is currently offline due to the virus, with more producers anticipating to be hit.
To replace eggs, manufacturers are more and more turning a hi-tech San Francisco firm that makes an ‘eggless egg’ using a secret blend of plants.
With egg production down 25 % at this time, and the most detrimental possibly still to come, some fast food chains are currently cutting back. For instance, Whataburger has released that it is going to be restricting the number of hours that it serves breakfast…
Whataburger states it is restricting its breakfast-serving hours, citing egg shortages due to the Midwest bird flu problems.
The fast-food chain will serve breakfast 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. weekdays, and 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. on weekends. It earlier was offered 12 hours a day. Whataburger states in a statement that the changes will permit it to supply all of its locations.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture states verified outbreaks in the Midwest have cost chicken and turkey producers more than 44 million birds. Egg prices have rocketed.
Major chains such as Taco Bell, Dunkin’ Donuts and IHOP state they’re monitoring the situation but haven’t yet been afflicted.
people should start waking up and taking this more seriously, because this is a extremely big deal.
But obviously of even greater issue is what would happen if the bird flu commenced spreading among the human population.
At this stage, the CDC states that there are no human cases, but they are recommending caution…
“While these recently identified HPAI H5 viruses are not known to have caused disease in humans, their appearance in North American birds may increase the likelihood of human infection in the United States,” the CDC stated.
Actually, the CDC has released a special alert to medical professionals assisting them to watch for any signs that this virus has crossed over…
“Clinicians should consider the possibility of highly pathogenic avian influenza H5 virus infection in persons showing signs or symptoms of respiratory illness who have relevant exposure history,” the CDC stated in a health alert released to doctors.
“This includes persons who have had contact with potentially infected birds (e.g., handling, slaughtering, defeathering, butchering, culling, preparation for consumption); direct contact with surfaces contaminated with feces or parts (carcasses, internal organs, etc.) of potentially-infected birds; and persons who have had prolonged exposure to potentially-infected birds in a confined space.”
I realize that we have had some false alarms with swine flu and ebola in the past few years.
But undoubtedly, a major pandemic is one of the greatest possible risks that we face. Throughout history, there have been massive pandemics that have killed millions upon millions of people, and scientists guarantee us that it is only a matter of time before the next one hits.
Just recently, Bill Gates talked about his perception that a future pandemic could come along anytime and kill tens of millions of us…
One of the world’s richest men, who spoke in 2010 about how vaccines (which he heavily pushes throughout the world) are assisting to cull the world’s population, is now forecasting that as many as 33 million people could soon die from a modern-day pandemic similar to the 1918-1919 Spanish flu.
Microsoft founder Bill Gates has not stated how such an event will culminate, but he’s sure it will, and he’s really spent a pretty penny working on predictive models to show what sort of occurrence will kill the most people in the near future. It won’t be a big volcanic explosion, a gigantic earthquake, an asteroid, or even approaching world war, as outlined by Gates – at least not in his lifetime. Rather, it will be an outbreak of some terrible disease like Ebola.
Needless to say for many in the scientific community, a major pandemic like that would be a ideal remedy to the “overpopulation problem” that they think the world is facing.
Most Americans seem to think that there could never possibly be significant food shortages in this country. In the months ahead, we are possible to see substantial shortages of eggs, chicken and turkey. And definitely prices for all of those items will never be cheaper than they are right now.
So today is the time to top off and to add to your food storage items. Because once the general public begins freaking out about all of this, it will be far too late to do anything about it then.
