McMillan Palgrave
Based on the recent avian flu outbreaks that have emerged into human populations, the World Health Organization now warns us that bird flu--if mutated into a supercontagious pandemic form--could visit millions of homes within two years.
The Bird Flu Pandemic provides definitive answers to the questions on all our minds:
- Should we be getting reading for a world catastrophe, and if so, what should we be doing?
- Will masks help?
- Should we feed our kids poultry?
- Will we be able to go to work?
- Will we be able to leave the house?
- What about pets?
- Just how bad could this get?
Dr. Greene knows exactly what we need to do to keep our families safe, sane, and secure in the face of what is potentially an unprecedented and life-threatening worldwide scourge.

Everyone now knows that Bird Flu is killing chickens and wild birds all over the world.
What we don't know is how dangerous the outbreak is for humans. Dr. Greene cuts through the hype and hysteria to explain exactly what we need to be prepared for, and what we can do to keep ourselves safe if a pandemic happens. In an authoritative and easy-to-understand style, Dr. Greene explains:
--Available medicines and vaccines
--The likelihood of a global catastrophe like 1918
--What to eat and what to avoid
--What we need to know about our pets, and much more.
The Bird Flu Pandemic will help you make the right choices for you and your family.
