Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes Baby At Risk For Avian Flu - DR
Dec 8, 2005
Tom Cruise and pregnant fiance Katie Holmes seem to be ignoring the panic that has swept over China regarding the deadly avian flu epidemic during their stay in Shanghai.
The 43-year-old actor is filming the third instalment of the Mission: Impossible movie series and wants Katie, 26, by his side.
Cruise and Holmes have not appeared concerned that the country has had to destroy 20 million fowl this year to stem the plague that has so far killed 68 people in Asia.
According to medical expert Dr. Erika Schwartz, who, according to The National Enquirer, has not treated Katie but has followed her pregnancy, saying: "It's not wise for Katie to take such risks. Tom has to be there for work, but she does not. She is risking the health of her unborn baby as well as her own."
