Tune in to learn more about why concern is intensifying, how bird viruses spread and mutate, how wild bird populations have and will be affected, and whether factory farming plays any role in the recent outbreaks. Dr. Greger will also provide a critical perspective on the mainstream media’s coverage of the flu and offer his take on the possibility of a pandemic and his thoughts on prevention.
