Double vaxed, which left me with a sore arm. What’s next? It’s only a matter of time before the next deadly pandemic rears its threatening self.
Most pandemics are zoonotic in origin, which means they cross from animals to humans, primarily as a result of people using animals for food.
Dating back to the Spanish Flu of 1918, each subsequent pandemic – including HIV/AIDS, Swine flu, Avian flu, mad cow disease, SARS and COVID-19 – are zoonotic in origin. Each virus get stronger than its predecessor, and as viruses mutate and become resistant, they become more deadly and harder to control and combat.
As marvelous as it is, the COVID-19 vaccine is a bandaid, a temporary solution to address the symptoms, not a fundamental fix that addresses the root cause of pandemics. The more powerful remedy to slow the creation and spread of pandemics is to stop eating and breeding animals for food.
