Banyak yang mendadak nanya, lo makan-makan babi, nggak takut kena swine flu? Malah, ada yang bilang, ‘Eh katanya, kalau mau makan babi, minum obat flu dulu, biar nggak kena flu babi…’
Can people catch swine flu from eating pork?
No. Swine influenza viruses are not transmitted by food. You can not get swine influenza from eating pork or pork products. Eating properly handled and cooked pork and pork products is safe. Cooking pork to an internal temperature of 160°F kills the swine flu virus as it does other bacteria and viruses.
