Dr. Pipes

In the case of Egypt الزبالين or the men that collect garbage in Cairo and most of them are Copts used to recycle the garbage and feed their pigs with the organic material collected from the massive piles of garbage in Cairo and it worked very well: Feed the pigs and have very high quality protein from the flesh of the pigs to feed themselves in a country where the price of one kilogram is about 80-100 pounds and the daily income of 40% of Egyptians is about 14 pounds per day!

Enter the Swine Flu now called H1N1 Flu and in 2009 the authorities in Egypt were very happy to kill all the pigs but they did not realize back then that when they killed the pigs they created another massive problem and that is what to do with the piles of garbage in Cairo

Now pass forward to 2013 and with piles of garbage in Egypt and no pigs to eat the organic material and now a real disaster and help requested from the poor الزبالين to get their pigs out and get them to eat the piles of organic material that was piling up all over the place et voila the pigs are back

So the good news is the pigs are allowed back to do what they can do best and that is eat all the organic material and left over of food consumed even by pious Muslims and every one is happy and even the spokesman for the al-Zabaleen is saying that all is OK because the pigs in Egypt are "immune" to the flu!
