    No one knows for sure, but the truth might actually lie somewhere in the middle [there was a debate on whether it was from Mexico or the US]! Mexican newspapers are reporting that a U!S! owned hog farm in Veracruz is where the illness was first incubated and spread to humans!Mexican paper La Jornada claims that the virus can be traced to Granjas Carroll, a hog farm in Veracruz owned by U!S! pork giant, Smithfield Foods! Smithfield Foods has actually been sued multiple times in the U!S! for improperly managing their feces disposal and in the case of Granjas Carroll, locals of the farm town complain about the “lagoon of feces” that the farm has created–they say that the smell is intolerable and that it incubates giant swarms of flies! In fact, the biting flies may be to blame for spreading the virus, as they could provide a conduit between pig and human bloodstreams!Its not getting more serious, its just becoming more widespread (just as any new illness does)! It is not more serious that the nomal flu that comes around every year! The only concern is that it is new, so there arent vaccines for it yet and people dont have immunity! It can be dangerous for young children and older people (the ones who normally get vaccines), so they are more succeptible to this flu than others!
