Can Science Create the Next Pandemic?
Remember that flu article controversy awhile back? No?

What happened was scientists have figured out a way to genetically engineer H5N1 virus (a particularly dangerous strain of bird flu virus that kills up to 60% of people infected) into an airborne form - making it much more contagious.

This new form of bird flu could potentially be easily transmitted by simple sneezing and coughing.

When the researchers tried to publish their findings, they were delayed by a government agency that was worried that this information could be used to create a biological weapon, or that the virus would accidentally (or on purpose) escape the lab and spread.

Now, it seems the cat is out of the bag. The article has been published in a prestigious peer reviewed journal called Science available to anyone for free. You can read this article and several others here.

We at are stumped.

Should such research be published and easily available to all who ask, or should this research be somehow suppressed?
Please come by our blog to take a poll and tell us what you think!
