    In general, one doesn't have to be too worried. Even if a chicken is infected with H5N1, once it spends a few minutes being fried in boiling oil, or in case of the christmas goose, 2 hours in a 200C oven, all bacterials are being killed.

      That would be true, except that H5N1 is a virus, and some of those buggers can stand pretty high temperatures

        True, but the current form of H5N1 is very heat sensitive and does not survive very long away from a host. Of course that can all change if it mutates...

          That's right, but mutation is what everybody is worried about. It has already mutated from its original form; the virus strain we have today is not the strain it started out as. It's pretty scary if you ask me.

            I don't worry too much about this. Just heard a commercial on the radio that a local supermarket chain is offering chicken/turkey meat at 30% (no kidding!). The christmas goose could become very cheap this year .

              It's just like Y2K probably, remember how all the computer's were spose to stop, throwing the planet into chaos? I trust that if bird flu reached my country the government will deal with it, so in saying that I coulden't care less about it.
