Discovery Channel and the hosts of MythBusters have joined with the United States Department of Health and Human Services for a public service announcement about H1N1 to air on the Discovery Channel. The campaign features hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage bringing their science to the sneeze and advice to stay home if you’re sick. As well, the campaign has a web component, www.discovery.com/h1n1, with ‘Top Five Myths About H1N1′ from HowStuffWorks.com and helpful links to find out more about H1N1. Discovery Education will also provide educational and classroom resources for teachers and students.
