Swine influenza

(also called swine flu, hog flu, pig flu and sometimes, the swine) is an infection by any one of several types of swine influenza virus.

Swine influenza virus is common throughout pig populations worldwide. Transmission of the virus from pigs to humans is not common and does not always lead to human influenza, often resulting only in the production of antibodies in the blood. If transmission does cause human influenza, it is called zoonotic swine flu. People with regular exposure to pigs are at increased risk of swine flu infection. The meat of an infected animal poses no risk of infection when properly cooked.  [Wikipedia]
