TIMES are tough, but Australia is really getting it in the neck. But this is the self-styled Land of Wonder we're talking about here, where sitting on a desert island blogging about the Great Barrier Reef is deemed to be the best job in the world.

Scientists warn of new polio virus strain

"A virus closely related to polio is causing major outbreaks of hand, foot and mouth disease across the Asia-Pacific region....and there are fears that Australia is unprepared for an outbreak."

Forgetful? Virus may be eating your brain

Forget where you left your glasses? Did those keys go missing again? A virus may be to blame.

Viruses that cause a range of ills from the common cold to polio may be able to infect the brain and cause steady damage, a team at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota reports.

"Our study suggests that virus-induced memory loss could accumulate over the lifetime of an individual and eventually lead to clinical cognitive memory deficits," says Dr Charles Howe, who reports the findings in the latest issue of the journal Neurobiology of Disease.

The viruses are called picornaviruses and infect more than 1 billion people worldwide each year.

They include the virus that causes polio, as well as colds and diarrhoea. People contract an average of two or three such infections a year.

"We think picornavirus family members cross into the brain and cause a variety of brain injuries. For example, the polio virus can cause paralysis," Howe says.

"It can injure the spinal cord and different parts of the brain responsible for motor function. In the [mouse] virus we studied, it did the same thing and also injured parts of the brain responsible for memory."

The researchers infected mice with a virus called Theiler's murine encephalomyelitis virus, which is similar to human poliovirus.

Infected mice later had difficulty learning to navigate a maze. Some were barely affected, while others were completely unable to manage.

When the mice were killed and their brains examined, a correlating amount of damage was seen in the hippocampus region, related to learning and memory.

One virus particularly likely to cause brain damage is enterovirus 71, which is common in Asia, the researchers say.

It can cross over into the brain and cause encephalitis, a brain inflammation that can lead to coma and death.

"Our findings suggest that picornavirus infections throughout the lifetime of an individual may chip away at the cognitive reserve, increasing the likelihood of detectable cognitive impairment as the individual ages," the researchers write.

"We hypothesise that mild memory and cognitive impairments of unknown aetiology may, in fact, be due to accumulative loss of hippocampus function caused by repeated infection with common and widespread neurovirulent picornaviruses."

Other viruses kill brain cells, including the herpes virus and HIV.

Quite seriously, which is something a bit radical on this forum, even Australians don't holiday in Australia. Too expensive. And what with the USD being monetized by BB at the Fed: that means it's value is being lowered, the AUD is worth more than ever, making the exchange rate unfavourable for foreigners. Then there is this matter of the GFC which has left the average holidaying punter with no funds to holiday. If they do have some spare cash it is better to put that away in case things get worse, than to splurge on an expensive nation like Australia.
It is far cheaper for me to scuba dive in Fiji for a couple of weeks than it is to head on up to QLD and the Barrier Reef.
Dead right.

good i like indians muslims.. they r my brothers. i love the food too, but aussies have no culture and no food, just beer... lol why, cos they have low IQ, cant come up with their ow food .
i have NEVER seen an indian junkie.. how bout aussie junkies.. they are everywhere.. areas like frankston
Muslims dont stand a chance of world domination; for if they did then we would be taking one big technological step backward. I think that if muslims want to demonstrate any form of leadership then they should start with the most basic of forward thinking civilisations:'infrastruture', 'hygiene' and 'sanitation'.

Was Australia closer in distance to Europe and North America in the 1980s when we had a phenomenal surge in the number of tourists visiting Australia ? No -- so distance is not an issue here is it ? Were prices in Australia relatively cheaper in the 1980s ? No -- so high costs in Australia are not an issue here either are they ? What then could be hindering people from around the world to select Australia as a holiday destination ?

People still do love and travel to Australia. It's a beautiful place. Look at the video on the Travel Explosion website and see for yourself.

Its run by left wing corrupt scum Australian labor party. i hate the place and am planning on leaving in 2013 for good......can't say I'm gonna miss Australia.

The Australia we knew us being is being destroyed by non-Western prioritised multiculturalism. In the 1970s we were like a multicultural Europe here, with a UK dominant heritage. With current immigration schemes, the society that Australia was building for 190 years until the mid-70s, from then will be completely deconstructed in 50 years eg. 2025. It will be an even more divisive mess then. European Aussies below 50% of the population. Chaos.
Multiculturalism does not work. It has failed in UK, France, Germany. It fails everywhere.

It was never meant to work. Its meant to serve the goals and objectives of the Globalist Elite and their New World Order agenda.
That agenda also seeks the destruction of the White Western world.

Well it DOES work, if your goal as the dominant minority is gain power and keep it.

In a diverse nation, the dominant minority is less likely to be seen as the usurpers and criminals they are, as everyone is a "minority".

However, our friends with the funny hats should be worried about bringing in too many east asians as they aren't stupid and haven't been brainwashed by fake asian guilt programming.
