eggcellent scare story

From the Scotsman: EU warns of bird flu danger in chicken and eggs.

Ah ha ha ha. I laugh in the face of danger and will have a soft-boiled egg for my supper tonight. Take that, Mr/Ms Scaremonger Media. (The key question is: how will this affect spiceone’s and cooksister’s EoMEoTE?)

Useless piece of science trivia for the day: the annual vaccine for “regular” flu is harvested from vast quantities of deliberately infected fertilised poultry eggs, the supply of which is now under threat from the new strain of avian flu. Oh the irony!
