Meet the rapidly spreading virus that might goose your bacon and pork prices: porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, or PED. The virus with that all too descriptive name was previously thought to exist only in China and Europe, but apparently it immigrated stateside this spring, The Associated Press reports.

In May, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, confirmed the country's first case in Iowa. While it's not transmissible to humans, the virus has an astounding 80% to 100% mortality rate in piglets, with symptoms including diarrhea, fever, vomiting and, yes, death.

The virus has now spread to 15 states at an alarming rate, AP reported. "It has been devastating for those producers where it has been diagnosed," Dr. Nick Striegel, assistant state veterinarian for Colorado's Department of Agriculture, told the news service.

Everyone will be vegetarian at some point Scoop - maybe not in our life time but it takes too much grain to raise animals - as the world food shortage increases, people will have to eat the grain. Feeding animals for food consumption is a huge waste of food resources. This world will be so different in 50 to 100 years from now, if it is still here.

Maybe there is something in between. I'm not giving up meat. The vegans often suffer gastritus and similar because of lack of food balance. Hitler was a vegan and suffered gastritis according to his doctor. Vegetables can poison you too thru various ways and methods.

There is a difference in vegan and vegetarian - meat has too many things added to it and unless you get grain fed meat, it is not good for you. Vegetarians usually have less health problems and most try to eat fresh vegetables. I am not a total vegetarian but I could never eat another piece of beef. It probably will not happen in your life time Scoop, but it is coming.
