Even scientists who helped develop the vaccine say they are not going to take it and urge their friends and family not to either, says Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist and RT contributor.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that vets have found traces of the swine flu virus in birds. It was detected in turkeys at farms in Chile.

So far swine flu has proved to be very contagious, but not more deadly than the common flu.

However, scientists fear it may combine with avian flu, which is currently very dangerous but hard to pass on.
