Isolated Amazon Indians Die of Swine Flu

Yanomami Indians

The Yanomami are the largest relatively isolated tribe in the Amazon rainforest, with a population of about 32,000 that straddle the Venezuela-Brazil border. Due to this isolation they have very little resistance to introduced diseases such as flu.

Act now to help the Yanomami!

  1. Terrible! Hey Eric I just wanted to let you know that my website changed from to If you could change that in your links that would be awesome. Seriously Eric look at my website and the Amazon Herb Company a little more - we've been named the answer to saving the rainforest by the Cousteau Society and we need all the help we can get in spreading the word. My site is a team site to help you spread the word! The only way to save the rainforest is to make it into a living and sustainable commodity.

  2. Hey Jonathan!
    Thanks for the heads up. I updated the link so it has the correct address. I agree with you and I will do my part to help spread the word. Best regards.
