This thread is specifically intended as a way to keep a record of the Ebola situation world wide. Anyone who has any information regarding Ebola, is encouraged to put it on this thread, and any previous posts made on the diseases thread, addressing Ebola, can also be cross posted here, if those who made the posts care to go to the trouble to repost them. Strictly your choice. This situation appears to be escalating, and air travel is going to be a critical way of spreading the virus. Taking people already ill with Ebola and bringing/taking them to any other country other than where they contracted the virus seems to me to be a questionable practice, and could be responsible for spreading the disease all over the world, and quickly. The intent here is not to create fear, it is to help make and keep us aware. Could be nothing but hype, but I sure don't think I like them transporting those infected to non infected areas. Ebola cases rise to 1,323; 2 African doctors die Lisa Schnirring | Staff Writer | CIDRAP News Jul 30, 2014 "In West Africa's quickly evolving Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak, the illness continues to exact a heavy toll on healthcare providers and disrupt aid work, with reports of more cases and deaths and news that two top doctors in Sierra Leone and Liberia have died from their infections, according to official sources and media reports. The outbreak in West Africa, the world's biggest and deadliest, has been an enormous challenge for affected countries and threatens other African nations Health officials outside Africa have said the disease threat to other regions of the world is low, because EVD is spread only by exposure to the blood and body fluids of infected patients, and infected people aren't contagious until they show symptoms. However, authorities in nations such as the United States and England have warned healthcare providers that they should be prepared to see isolated cases in travelers. WHO: Nigeria case is significant developmentThe World Health Organization (WHO) said in its latest update today that 122 new infections and 57 more deaths were reported in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Nigeria between Jul 24 and 27. The new cases raise the outbreak's overall total to 1,323 cases, 729 of them fatal. The largest number of new reports was from Liberia, which had 80 new cases and 27 deaths." snip http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2014/07/ebola-cases-rise-1323-2-african-doctors-die Source: Flight en route to Liberia to evacuate Americans infected with Ebola July 31, 2014 By Chelsea J. Carter, Ben Brumfield and Jacque Wilson, CNN "(CNN) -- The fear began just after news broke Thursday that a long-range business jet with an isolation pod left the United States for Liberia, where it will evacuate two Americans infected with Ebola. Twitter exploded with questions about the deadly virus, which according to the World Health Organization is believed to have killed hundreds in four West African nations. And with reaction to news that two infected Americans would soon be on their way back to the United States. "Why are they doing this?" Robin Hunter asked in a post on Twitter. While U.S. officials have remained mum on the issue, a source told CNN that a medical charter flight left from Cartersville, Georgia, on Thursday evening." A CNN crew saw the plane depart shortly after 5 p.m. ET. The plane matched the description provided by the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. It was not immediately known when the two Americans -- identified by the source as Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol -- would arrive in the United States, or where the plane would land. At least one of the two will be taken to a hospital at Emory University, near the headquarters of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, hospital officials told CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The patient will be cared for in an isolation unit at the hospital that is separate from patient areas, Gupta said. With the return of Brantly and Writebol to the United States, it will be the first time that patients diagnosed with Ebola will be known to be in the country. Brantly and Writebol are described as being in stable-but-grave conditions, with both reportedly taking a turn for the worse overnight, according to statements released Thursday by the faith-based charity Samaritan's Purse." snip video at link http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/31/health/ebola-outbreak/index.html Tx Reddwolf
breezy posted a topic in General DiscussionAs a preface, recently I read and posted an article that created a bit of concern in my mind. I recalled another article read a few years ago on the same subject that stated this was going to become a huge problem. Then in chat last night a discussion ensued about BSE, or Bovine Spongiform Encepholopathy and when I went looking for more information, I was purely horrified at what I had found. Thus this post has come about. Not to frighten anyone, but mostly to inform anyone who doesn't really know much about it. The article I posted was this one Brazil confirms second case of atypical mad cow disease http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/05/10/us-brazil-madcow-idUSKBN0DQ0J020140510 posted here http://forums.thechaniproject.com/topic/4130-new-diseases-humananimal-a-record/page-39 What concerned me was this word ATYPICAL, meaning, that the infection did not come to those cows in the normal way, but in a totally different manner. Scary. These were grass fed cows. Organic iow. I will throw out a couple did you knows here about BSE It is also known as CJD or Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease The most common misdiagnosis of CJD is Alzheimer's disease. The disease is virtually 100% fatal It causes memory loss, emotional instability including inappropriate outbursts, an unsteady gait, progressing to marked weakness, severe rapidly progressive dementia and death, often within a year of the onset of symptoms. It is caused by a prion, which is neither a virus nor a bacteria. Prions are proteins that contain no DNA or RNA. Incubation period may be as long as 20-40 years. BSE is extremely resistant to high temperatures; it is unaffected by radiation, laboratory solvents and bleaches. In other words, it appears to be virtually indestructible. The UK has been severely affected. Germany, Italy and many other countries have also been affected. You know, of course what rendering is, correct? Well, this is how it goes these days, I quote from the linked article. "Rendering is a $2.4 billion-a-year industry. "There is simply no such thing in America as an animal too ravaged by disease, too cancerous, or too putrid to be welcomed by the embracing arms of the renderer. In addition to diseased farm animals, the city of Los Angeles sends some two hundred tons of euthanized cats and dogs to a rendering plant every month. Added to the blend are the euthanized catch of animal control agencies and roadkill " according to Howard Lyman, a cattle rancher for 40 years. This is the food fed to the animals that YOU EAT!" MAD COW DISEASE WHAT THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT TELLING YOU! Lorraine Day, M.D. http://www.drday.com/madcow.htm This is a very informative article on the subject of BSE or CJD and it is something we should all be aware of. It does not affect just cows/beef. I can't help but wonder what they did with all those pigs that died from a virus recently here in the US. We all know that the FDA and USDA is complicit in a lot of bad things to do with our food. OH and I don't care that this Dr. talks about God, on her site, that doesn't change the facts as presented. In my book, anytime we are not told the whole truth about something, it becomes a conspiracy.

Sharry Edwards is the pioneer in the study of Human BioAcoustic Biology. Her 30 years of research is being used at the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology in Albany, OH.? ? Currently, Edwards and her team at Sound Health are using human voice and the associated frequencies to help clients resolve health issues such as macular degeneration, multiple sclerosis, headaches, muscle stress, brain trauma, weight issues and nutritional concerns. In this program we discuss the upcoming film "The Business of Disease," a documentary exploring the vastness of human potential despite the restrictions of programmed beliefs. For the sheer purpose of profit and control, illness is marketed to the minds of the unsuspecting masses. The results?
