Globally considered as one of the most deadly causing virus outbreaks in the history of the human race, Influenza A (H1N1), formerly called as Swine Flu Virus had brought fear to the lives of millions of people.

It was known that Influenza A (H1N1) virus had started in Mexico and slowly began spreading to other countries throughout the world. The World Health Organization with the coordination of other different institutions and health departments of concerned countries have continually monitored the evolution of the virus and scientists are trying hard to find solutions to combat the effects of the virus to humans until a vaccine be formulated and be made available for people's protection.

But how did this virus came to existence? This is one of the critical questions that lingers in my mind. Why?

In today's modern world, the use of medicinal plants and herbs have largely increased its popularity and more and more companies have shifted and invested to the production of natural-based food supplements as part of our diet. Anywhere we look, we could see flyers and billboards of the products, and we could read from papers and hear testimonies from people how a certain kind of food supplement had helped boast their energy and improved their health although some of the labels say, "No Approved Therapeutic Claims". Even doctors prescribed to their patients these food supplements. As these new alternative medicines increase popularity subsequently dominating the market, the demand for pharmaceutical drugs have slowly decreased.

According to the news, there is yet no vaccine available to combat this Influenza A (H1N1) virus and there is no other primary cure for this illness other than the prescribed medicine Tamiflu.

Just a point of query, is it possible for this Swine Flu Virus or Influenza A (H1N1) Virus to be scientifically man-made? To cause what? I think I'll leave the rest of the thoughts to you.
