11/06/2009 | Very good article but I wanted to ask from the authorities that they declared more than 250 persons die due to bird flu, if human nose is too cold for bird flu virus, then what causes the death of those persons? It needs more in depth study and we should stop to jump on the conclusion. Although earlier research also indicates that bird flu virus require a pig or duck as vassel to acquire killer instinct to infect and kill humans. But organizations and authorities, without realizing actual threat, over play the fear of bird flu and that resulted in loss of billions of dollars in the poultry indsutry. Who is responsible?

04/07/2011 | It is a worthy research. It means that INHALING must be through nose and EXHALING through mouth. It is bcs generally the workers at farmshave no knowledge of such important information. Most workers breaths with open mouth.

05/10/2011 | It is great news for those who are involved in poultry business. People may still be confused .....why then the death in human being occurs? I think detailed study is needed and if it is confirmed then instead of culling operation in the affected areas some other measures should be taken.
