WHO Allows Publication of Controversial Bird Flu Research

WHO Allows Publication of Controversial Bird Flu ResearchAfter months of controversy, the World Health Organisation – WHO – has decided to allow the publication of controversial research into bird flu. Scientists in the Netherlands and the United States have made versions of the virus which could potentially spread more easily between humans. There were calls for the research to be kept secret, and WHO indicated earlier this month that this was their preference, but the WHO has decided it is in the public interest to release it.

The disease remains a huge problem in countries from Indonesia to Egypt. When the H5N1 strain of bird flu has been contracted by humans, more than 60 per cent have died, making it one of the most lethal strains of flu ever detected. An expert panel convened by the WHO has decided the research should be published in full. The panel says the research should not be published until it has increased public awareness and understanding and reviewed issues of bio-safety and biosecurity. Read the full article »»»»

While we are all for animal rights, we a definitely amused at what seems to be a growing hypocrisy in Australia’s moral based policies. Shirking our social responsibilities for a few thousand people, an unfounded fear of different people all seems a bit of a beat up. In 2010 around 4000 people attempted to arrive in Australia via rickety boat, in 2010 – that same year – a little over 3000 Australians committed suicide. Did the Australian government and indeed the Federal Opposition stand on  a soap box spruking the evils of suicide? Did $150,000,000 get thrown at trying to turn the tide on mental illness? Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard said of the Chinese and their human rights, “I did express to premier Wen my concern and Australia’s concern about the treatment of ethnic minorities, about the question of religious freedom and about recent reports in relation to human rights activists, we believe in human rights. It’s an Australian value” M★C READ MORE
