How did the swine flu originate?

    Almost all “superbugs” such as the swine flue originate because animals (in this case pigs) are pumped full of antibiotics they do not need in order to keep them “healthy”. However, this often has the adverse effect of allowing bacteria to mutate and become resistant to the antibiotics. In this case, pigs were becoming sick from these new super bugs, and people who ate meat from those pigs who had the mutated bacteria which caused swine flu then became sick (Swine Flu is an ironic name because it was caused by a bacteria in a pig, yet it causes a flu like condition in Humans which is actually a virus)
