Not 'he', but 'she'.
As it's a she, the 'she' makes it a no-brain anyway, she can't suffer brain damage.
Hopefully Gamer won't read this ....

I thought it was about time you got something that suits you.
It took me several days of hard work to create a title especially for you.

It seems the quickly spreading deadly "Swine Flu" epidemic has finally found a cure or atleast something to keep the disease at bay.

I find that article highly dubious. Just the way that it's written seems very...suspicious to me.

Everything seems suspicious to you. Anywayz I guess the only way to find out if the cure really works is to get someone infected... any volunteers? Your name will go down in history for it :laugh:

Well, it's not very solid, objective journalism.

Let's break it down:
Tulsi, the purest and most sublime plant, has been known and worshipped in India for more than five millennia for its remarkable healing properties.
Based on what? It might be sacred in a religion, but that doesn't mean an independent news source should claim that as fact. That bolded part is a red flag.
"The anti-flu property of Tulsi has been discovered by medical experts across the world quite recently. Tulsi improves the body's overall defence mechanism including its ability to fight viral diseases. It was successfully used in combating Japanese Encephalitis and the same theory applies to swine flu," Dr U K Tiwari, a herbal medicine practitioner says.
It has? Then why the hell haven't I heard of it?
"Tulsi can control swine flu and it should be taken in fresh form. Juice or paste of at least 20-25 medium sized leaves should be consumed twice a day on an empty stomach." This increases the resistance of the body and, thereby, reduces the chances of inviting swine flu," believes Patel.
So essentially, you saying that we should take this as a vitamin, with a pretty serious regiment. I have trouble remembering to take my multivitamin some days.
As its name suggests, Tulsi has again proved to be the 'the incomparable' medicine - this time, in the prevention and cure of swine flu.
What exactly does the name suggest? Maybe if you used its common English name in an article written in English, which is Holy Basil, we could see what exactly the name suggests. But no, you decide to alien all of your readers that can't read or understand Sanskrit or Hindi.
A significant number of people who have been infected with novel H1N1 flu virus also have reported diarrhea and vomiting. The high risk groups for novel H1N1 flu are not known at this time, but it's possible that they may be the same as for seasonal influenza. However, Please consult a practitioner in case of any such symptoms. Doctors have strictly advised against self medication.
First off, "Please" needs to be lowercase. (Is there even an editor of this "news" source?)
And I'm glad they threw the final line in. Of course it's from the negative and antagonizing viewpoint that some mean, old, grumpy doctor has said that you needs to talk to them, like they know anything. It's not like they've gone to schools for years and years just to treat illnesses in the human body. But that aside, it just goes to show that you can rant and extol the virtues of any controversal and unproven medicine as long as you put in "See your doctor first."
Sustinendum Victoriam!
