This should interest teatime. It seems that folks born before 1957 may have an immunity to swine flu virus.

I wonder if this immunity by older people could have something to do with the fact that many of us 'older' folks are under less stress..... Stress takes a toll on your ammune system and makes people more vulnerable to catching 'whatever is going around'. Since I retired, I have not had a major illness. This past winter, I didn't even catch a cold! When I was working I would get bronchitis at least a couple of times every winter. Since I retired I have not had a bout with bronchitis once. I have even been around my friends (who are still working) when they were sick, and didn't catch anything. Strange........
