Are Terrorist Really Behind Ebola And Enterovirus D68?

We are seeing more and more cases of a mystery respiratory illness, Enterovirus D68, that is afflicting our children, and not just any respiratory illness, a strain that is producing paralysis in some. And just days ago we see reports of the first American case of Ebola and the alarms bells are ringing that there may be other cases headed for the U.S.

It may be time to ask some of the tough questions like, are these illnesses really a plot executed by terrorists aimed at taking out the masses? All this while they divert our attention with a rash of invasions and beheadings?

It’s called bio-terrorism, and as much as we would like to think we know the terrorist’s tactics, like some whack job strapping a bomb to themselves Continue reading

How Fast Is The Ebola Virus Spreading? #scary

The Ebola virus is really starting to spread and spread fast, the virus itself and the public’s fears.

Check out just how fast the deadly virus is spreading using this handy panic now infographic and keep in mind, the U.S. State Dept., just purchased over 160,000 Ebola protection suits.

how fast is ebola spreading

Ebola virus disease (EVD), Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF), or simply Ebola is a disease of humans and other primates caused by an ebola virus. Symptoms start two days to three weeks after contracting the virus, with a fever, sore throat, muscle pain and headaches. Typically, vomiting, diarrhea and rash follow, along with decreased functioning of the liver and kidneys. Around this time, affected people may begin to bleed both within the body and externally.

The virus may be acquired upon contact with blood or bodily fluids of an infected animal.

Spreading through the air has not been documented in the natural environment. Fruit bats are believed to be a carrier and may spread the virus without being affected. Once human infection occurs, the disease may spread between people, as well. Male survivors may be able to transmit the disease via semen for nearly two months. To make the diagnosis, typically other diseases with similar symptoms such as malaria, cholera and other viral hemorrhagic fevers are first excluded. To confirm the diagnosis, blood samples are tested for viral antibodies, viral RNA, or the virus itself. source

Prevention includes decreasing the spread of disease from infected animals to humans. This may be done by checking such animals for infection and killing and properly disposing of the bodies if the disease is discovered. Properly cooking meat and wearing protective clothing when handling meat may also be helpful, as are wearing protective clothing and washing hands when around a person with the disease. Samples of bodily fluids and tissues from people with the disease should be handled with special caution.

3D Glasses Crawling with Germs!

An audience views a film using 3D glasses

I just got done watching the show Inside Edition on CBS, and I learned that 3D glasses are really dirty, even though cinemas claim to sanitize the glasses after every use. You must read what the tests found on the glasses! Disgusting!

Inside Edition’s “I-Squad” researched the cleanliness of the glasses that were supposed to be clean, and they found the results to be shocking. Not one of the dozen glasses that they tested were germ free.

A pair of sealed and sanitized glasses from “AMC Loews” theatre in Manhattan, were taken by the I-Squad, and tested for germs. I-Squad hired a company called “RealD” to test the glasses for germs, and the glasses tested positive for a ‘fungal organism’ that can ’cause ear infections and bacteria found in feces’.

Billy Mays Had Cocaine in his System

Mays

Surprising, disappointing news today as we learn that Billy Mays, the lively TV spokesman who died on June 28, had cocaine in his system. Officials say that Mays had heart disease but the drug contributed to his death. I can honestly say that I did not see that coming.  Even with his rambunctious, loud demeanor, you didn’t take Mays as a cocaine user.  I guess I just can’t read certain people.

The initial autopsy didn’t find any amounts of drugs in his system but the toxicology reports, which were just released, revealed the sad information.  Mays was 50 when he died last month.
