Bird Flu in the USA

Here is a pretty interesting press release from the Harvard School of Public Health about the US feelings towards Bird Flu. Thankfully we at least make the grade about being concerned about potential outbreaks (57% are concerned). What I found interesting is that if there is an outbreak, 71% of Americans would not attend public events but (and here is where it gets interesting) only 46% would stop eating chicken. Isn't there something odd about that? I mean this disease is spread more through poultry than humans.. right?
