There are plenty of anti-virals that are easily had and proven effective. Garlic, eat a raw clove every day. Turmeric and oil of oregano can be taken in capsules. Keep a cheap humidifier in your home and add tea tree oil to the water. I use about 20 drops per gallon of water. The expensive humidifiers have too many filters for the tea tree oil to muck up. Keep a small spray bottle of alcohol with tea tree oil around at all times, especially when you are out and about. About ten drops per 4oz of alcohol, use it to clean your hands and objects you may have to come in contact with. Spray down the inside of your car when you get home. There is a lot of prevention that can be gotten easily, common sense being the most important.
When it comes right down to it, I don't trust the experts. They managed to bring this virus to us, the CDC attempted to hide it, and the experienced hospital workers here have testified to the fact that most hospitals are in a position to spread this thing further through negligence.

Yes I know the history of "Liberia" or let say Americo-Liberians), that is why the man had no problem with traveling from his country into the US.
Perhaps a history research is in line here?
That doesn't excuse the fact that he came from a country that is suffering from a epidemic, and that our government has not restricted the travelling of the possible infected into our nation.
Is an issue of security, nothing else.

The CDC says it's not airborne, yet it is known to have jumped from infected monkeys to pigs that were isolated from each other.
The CDC says it's not contagious until symptoms appear, meaning a person could not be a 'carrier'?
I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't put much faith in the CDC. They've been known to be wrong before, and they've been caught in blatant lies on more than one occasion.
Guess that stockpile of FEMA coffins may come in handy after all.

I was responding to a member that was asking about colloidal silver. You brought the broccoli into the conversation. My emphasis was on prevention, such as keeping yourself safe out in public. Rather than depending on the experts to protect or cure us, which they won't, I am simply suggesting that we take care of ourselves first.

Why Deadly Ebola Virus Is Likely to Hit the U.S. But Not Spread
Air Passengers Monitored
Several West African nations are planning to set up monitoring at airports to try to identify people with fevers before they board planes. It makes more sense to put checkpoints in West African countries than to scan incoming passengers in the U.S., said Martin Cetron, the CDC's director for Global Migration and Quarantine.
There are few direct flights from West Africa to the U.S., so most feverish passengers entering American airports will have something far more routine and less risky than Ebola.
Ebola is contagious only when symptomatic, so someone unknowingly harboring the virus would not pass it on, Monroe said.
Even passengers showing symptoms are unlikely to pass the disease on to fellow travelers, he said.
