Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Iowa Reports Worst Case Of Bird Flu So Far In National Outbreak

Iowa, the top U.S. egg-producing state, found a lethal strain of bird
flu in a flock of millions of hens at an egg-laying facility on Monday,
the worst case so far in a national outbreak that has now prompted
Wisconsin to declare a state of emergency.



The U.S. Department of
Agriculture said the Iowa flock numbered 5.3 million birds while the
company that operates the farm said it was 3.8 million. It was unclear
why there was a discrepancy.

Iowa
was already among the 12 U.S. states to have detected bird flu
infections since the beginning of the year. The other states with
infected poultry flocks are Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota,
Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and
Wisconsin.



Bird flu, also called avian influenza or AI, is a viral
disease of birds. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
considers the risk for human infections to be low, and no human cases
have been found yet.

The infected Iowa birds were being raised
near Harris, Iowa, by Sunrise Farms, an affiliate of Sonstegard Foods
Company, the company said. The farm houses 3.8 million hens, according
to the company, which sells eggs to food manufacturers, government
agencies and retailers.  Read more...
