This movie may help expose the problem of contagions in water.

Information on bird flue and H1N1 contagions and waterborne movement can be found by researching bird flue in Arctic lakes. The following web site will show a correlation to delivering and shedding of virus in water with the possibility of the creation of new flu strains through mixing, as birds move virus to different bodies of water around the world. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1 ...
As human beings swim and drink water how come the CDC will not address the ingestion of the water that these birds shed virus in, as a waterborne disease?
It is a known fact that virus and bacteria affect human health and are moved by ships ballast water. A simple google search of ballast water virus or ballast water human health shows this is not disputable.
New shipping lanes are opening for the first time in history in the Arctic and as the above web site states, the Arctic glacier ice melting can be releasing yet unknown ancient contagious pathogens.
Besides the known movement of existing virus have ballast systems been check to see if picking up contaminated waters all over the world can act as a test tube for mixing different pathogenic materials creating new strains, the way the above web site suggest birds mix virus in Arctic lakes creating new strains?
Can the current policy of ocean flush pick up unknown algae to act as a host for unknown virus, the same way it can pick up brown marine algae acting as a host for cholera virus?

We found a potential solution for any airborne Contagions and how to protect yourself at www.MedMasks.com They have FDA and NIOSH approved antibacterial respirator face masks that we found are perfect for the common cold, pollen, asthma, H5N1 and a whole bunch of airborne bacteria. They use a silver copper non-leaching technology.
