Why are we so concerned with the swine flu when there are much worse diseases out there?

    That’s a very good question and one that I’ve been considering a lot recently. I think that swine flu garners so much attention because of its worldwide implications, they don’t want it spreading to a level of an epidemic. On the other hand, AIDS and various types of cancer kill far more people every day than swine flu has during its entire existence. I think there is such a culture of fear propagated by the media and often the powers in charge and it’s ultimately up to us to find out the relative harms of H1N1 and adjust our lives accordingly.
