: Phillips Notes: Ebola Virus

A virus is a very simple non-cellular parasite. A parasite needs living cells of another organism to survive. The parasite benefits by the nutrients it derives from the target host. The host can be a person, plant or animal.

What are the Most Common Symptoms?

Most scientist believe there are 5 strands of of the Ebola virus. 4 of the strands appear to be the most harmful. The biggest symptoms are severe and possibly fatal fever, with internal and/ or external bleeding disorders, purple spots on the skin, and skin rashes.

Is There A Way to Avoid Viruses?

~ 1: The Quarantine came from the Italians. The word quarantine is derived from the Latin words: 'quadraginta giorni', which literally means "space for forty days". In the mid 1300's, shipping vessels suspected of carrying dis-eases, were kept in isolation for forty days. As time evolved, a person's body became the vessel. A period of forced isolation came about to stop dis-eases from spreading. For the protection of the masses are with the isolation by the by the authorities.

~ 2: Soap & Water is a great way to contain viruses. For the use of disinfectant soap is a huge defense for the stopping of the spread of any virus. By the washing of our hands with soap and water, has proven very effective. The Black Plaque of the mid 1300's saw huge strides with the simple use of soap and water for the sterilization of anything a human or animal touched. Today, we have many sources to acquire soap.

~ 3: Build Up Our Immune System to withstand viral infections. In our 'the Jetsons' pill popping-microwave society, we have to slowdown and eat more fresh green salads with every meal. It sounds simple, yet, there are so many times we get distracted by our busy schedules. We have to develop more natural healthy habits. The digestion of much more herbs, fruits and vegetables, helps fortify our cells, and give our body an easier blueprint to rebuild our body faster to sustain optimal health patterns. Herbs, fruit and vegetables carry vital minerals (vita-mins) and trace minerals, essential for building our immune system.

Interesting Research

History states The former Black Plaque was caused by fleas from rats and trash not being collected in a timely fashion. Now, many cities have codes to fine and penalize citizens for trash cans without lids on. At first, I thought this code was unconscionable. But now, with more research, this trash can code makes more sense. Some believe, the Ebola Virus, is caused by the fruit bat. But, two researchers named Susan Scott and Christopher Duncan wrote a book named: Biology of Plagues: Evidence from Historical Populations. They state...are symptoms of Ebola Virus the same symptoms of Black Plague? They give historical proofs of how the Black Plague was spread person to person and not by fleas and rats. Thus, the quarantine method of isolating the spread of a virus makes a lot of sense in the past and now. We will conquer the Ebola virus and prevail.


Street Talk

Thank you Geoffrey, I like the article you wrote on Ebola Origins. Your breakdown of the biblical ancient leprosy dis-ease is interesting.. The similarities of people avoiding and shunning lepers in the past is similar to the Ebola dis-ease today. Anyone labeled with the Ebola virus becomes an instant outcast and mandatory quarantine.
