"Animals carry viruses. The reason they are getting into us is that we are chopping down trees, building farms next to forests and trading wild animals," said Dr. Jonathan H. Epstein, a wildlife veterinarian with EcoHealth Alliance, which commissioned the study. "Everything comes back to human activities."
I've said it before and say it again: our own bodies, our human animality, are the exploit. Our bodies are the portal by which the animals will triumph over us. Indeed our animality conjoins with the animal revolution to overthrow humanism.
btw: fittingly, this is my 100th blog post on the animal revolution. I'm working on writing a book Animal Revolution: Events to Come. Hope to get it in a publishable form by 2013.
