Quotes

"It's anything that is cured, dried, smoked, cooked [or] packaged. And so the most common items around the countries we were studying would include bacon, ham, hot dogs, sausages, pate, cold cuts" said Figueiredo
"Virulence, or the ability of this organism to cause disease in mice or humans, is not very stable. It changes, and can rapidly be lost or gained. When the organism is in the host it is in one state. But when we take it out of the host and begin growing it in the laboratory it begins mutating" senior study author Fred Dietrich, an associate professorprofessor of molecular genetics and microbiology at Duke University School of Medicine, said...

"Each influenza season provides new challenges and uncertainties to both the public as well as the publicpublic health community. We're hoping that with this new method of influenza monitoring, we can harness publicly available data to help people get accurate, near-realtime information about the level of disease burden in the population."
