Bird Flu.....Interesting Numbers

Although it has not yet been discovered that the Avian bird flu can be transmitted from human to human, it is from birds to different animals. The Center for Disease Control reports that in the 1960's, there about 16 million chickens in China. In 2006, there is an estimated 20 Billion chickens in China, and mostly in open-air chicken farms.

All indications are that the bird flu is coming to America, good news is that most chickens here are in closed environments, bad news if you're living in China.

This was from Bill Bennett's morning show over 1 week....looking for a transcript.
