Please, don’t think that I’m trying to make light of the current “Ebola situation“. That’s the last thing on my mind.
I worked in the medical field, as a physician for almost 40 years. I’m very well aware of the impact and importance of this medical condition.
Oh Man, The Sacramento Bee
“As it appears in … “
Ebola virus disease (EVD), Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) or simply Ebola is a disease of humans and other mammals caused by an ebolavirus.
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 function of the liver and kidneys. Around this time, affected people may begin to bleed both within the body and externally. Death, if it occurs, is typically 6 to 16 days from the start of symptoms and often due to low blood pressure from fluid loss.
I just find it ironic that there’s outcry about this epidemic when we, as a nation, have a day in, day out lifestyle that has created a series of serious epidemics of major proportions yet the outcry for this has been deafened by years of ignorance, apathy, inaction, carelessness.
OBESITY, TOBACCO, ALCOHOL DEATHS
You tell me.
We ALL are ONE!!
