O'Reilly, Kelly, Greta, and Hannity of Fox News, are all screaming at the top of the lungs to ban flights from the affected areas. Telling all of us
to contact our political representatives and demand that flights from those areas with ebola in Africa be immediately stopped.
Smith has been parroting the same happy lala land crap for days now. I don't know who is holding a gun to his head, or if he actually believes the
totally irresponsible pablum flowing out of his mouth.
Just because you believe in something does not mean that it is true. People believe in interpretations others give of scientific evidence a lot yet
the evidence is misapplied some times or irrelevant to the situation. This seems to be the case. The people researching Ebola say that it is harder
to spread than the flu, they do not say that you definitely will not catch the virus if you do not touch the person.
I watched Obama's speech on TV last night and he was saying that the virus cannot be airborn. The definition of airborn is the issue, the virus
needs moisture to be transmitted. A virus cell is extremely small and it can latch onto the mist coming out of our breath. Now, it will die in a few
feet so being five feet away probably lessens the transmission of the disease. There are circumstances where this does not apply, but they are rare
in the case of Ebola.
I am not going to be paranoid about this disease. Half of us have immune systems that will fight this thing. We will not show signs of sickness from
this disease much, maybe just a slight flu like symptom and the virus will not be transmitted easily by these people from what I understand. Once you
get the disease, you will have immunity for many years.
I hate getting sick from any disease. Ebola is just another one that will piss me off if I catch it. I'm not going to heighten my risk factors
though. I will try to lessen my exposure to all diseases. I get autoimmune issues, I am learning what foods increase this activities through
research and evaluation and testing. So getting sick sucks no matter what it is, I will take normal precautions against catching this. Even though
the flu only gets me sick for a day or two and usually isn't severe like my wife gets, I still do not like getting it. She is a little jealous that
she gets the flu shot and gets the flu every year while I rarely get viruses that last long. I have to make the hot totties and chicken soup so the
medicine maker can't afford to be sick. When a virus got my daughter and her family and my other daughter who is working in Connecticut, I had to
make four batches of chicken soup in one week. That was a little over a week ago. My daughter made a trip home from Connecticut for the soup.
Pretty hard to make chicken soup when you live in a motel room.
