"Earlier today, the World Health Organization announced that no new case of Ebola has emerged in Nigeria in 42 days. That's the standard length of time required for declaring the end to an outbreak, since it's twice the maximum 21-day incubation period for the virus. It's an incredible achievement — one that should assuage fears and show that Ebola can be contained. Moreover, it's proof that developing nations, with sufficient support from the international community, are fully capable of dealing with the epidemic."

As for the key elements that made Ebola containment possible:

- Effective Leadership and Public-Health Institutions
- Rapid Response to the Initial Case
- Sufficient Access to Resources
- High Quality Contact-Tracing
- Applying Lessons From Previous Outbreaks
- A Rigorous Public Education Campaign
- Screening At Borders — And A Refusal To Stop Air Travel
- Moving Forward With Vigilance

1. Ebola is NOT spread through casual contact, air, water, or food grown or legally purchased in the United States.

2. Ebola is transmitted through direct contact with bodily fluids of someone who is already showing symptoms of the disease.

3. The symptoms of Ebola include: fever, headache, joint and muscle aches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, lack of appetite, and abnormal bleeding.

Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to Ebola virus, though 8-10 days is most common.

4. If a person does not have symptoms, they are not contagious.

In order for the virus to be transmitted, an individual would have to have direct contact with an individual who is experiencing symptoms or has died of the disease.

Bill Nye (the Science Guy) does a wonderful job in explaining what genetically modified (GM) foods are and what the implications are of their use, for the environment and our health. In addition, he gives a nice historical overview of the developments of foods and animals in agriculture.

A great video to watch to get up to speed on the subject and understand the debate regarding GM foods.
