    Finally a good historical video. History Channel, why dont you show any actual history documentaries anymore instead of boring reality shows and pseudoscience mockumentaries? I miss the history channel of the late 90s, early 2000s.

    The Spanish Flu even caused the 1919 Stanley Cup finals, which was a rematch of the 1917 finals between Montreal & Seattle (yes they had a hockey team, & Seattle won the Cup in 1917) to be suspended after 5 games with no winner.

    You should not forget that the most deadly ever is STILL tuberculosis. And this is crazy, because tuberculosis is also one of the oldest desease of human history, but we just couldn't completely wipe it out in all this years.

    Pandemics are as normal as any other natural disaster, now that we have transportation that can take us anywhere in the planet it only makes matters worse.

    Spanish influenza 1918 to 1920. It is the centennial anniversary. We are all here because our ancestors survived, probably, the worse pandemic of modern times ever. However, the Spanish influenza is thought to be only dormant. When will it come back? Will it come back in a dense urban center with several airports running 24 hours a day, trains departing constantly, and autobile traffic coming in and out of the major urban center? Where will the flights land? Where will the trains stop? Where will the automobile traffic be going? The possibilities are terrifying.

    Why is it that your neighbour has not been out of his house in two weeks and he was coughing up blood when he went in? Where did he say he took a flight from? What did he eat there? Why have his kids not been outside the house either? Why was a flight that landed in your city refused disembarking, not allowed to leave, and not allowed to communicate with the outside? Why are homeless disappearing in record numbers? Why are some hospitals closing their doors to enter or leave? Are you feeling okay? Are you sure? How long have you been feeling tired?

    When people understand diet is everything not exercise you then get a handle on wellness. More people have always died after wars than during them. Wars destroy everything even food & medical supplies. Once human health is comprised disease strikes. The human immune system like a Nations Armed Forces must be well nurtured otherwise if becomes weak. Always eat fresh when possible. Only eat junk as a last resort.
