(NaturalNews) As Ebola continues to systematically spread throughout various geographic locations, one has to begin to put together their own plan of personal responsibility in order to have the best possible outcome should they become exposed to the Ebola virus. Part of this plan should entail staying away from the most dangerous place to be during this stage of an Ebola outbreak, in order to prevent its rapid transmission.

Air travel - a triple threat

Air travel has become a way of life and has allowed us to circle parts of the world that were previously impossible. This international flavor added to our life has been enriching for many, but now poses a serious threat that makes it much less appealing, for three main reasons.

International exposure

With international air travel now a cultural norm, this makes it incredibly easy for people in geographic regions that are "world's away" to end up on your doorstep within 24 hours.

How easy and quickly this could happen has already been illustrated through Thomas Eric Duncan, who reportedly became infected with Ebola while interacting with family members in Liberia. He traveled by air to the United States, connecting through an airport in Washington, D.C. before arriving at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport in Texas.

As many as 100 people were being monitored in Texas for Ebola symptoms after coming into contact with Duncan or a close relative, and since then a second Dallas hospital worker (nurse) where Duncan was being treated has been confirmed as infected. To make matters worse, this infected second nurse has just been confirmed as being on a commercial flight with 132 other passengers! This could have never happened if Duncan did not have access to international air travel.

If you believe that an Ebola infected passenger will be scrutinously kept off flights, you may want to think again. First of all, there is a dangerous assumption that if a person is not symptomatic they can't spread the Ebola virus, but that notion is really unclear according to Michael Osterholm, a public health scientist at the University of Minnesota who recently served on the U.S. government's National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity. So any passenger allowed on board who shows no signs of Ebola (but could possibly still be infected, for up to 42 days according to new reports from the WHO) is an invisible wild card that carries a lot of risk.

Additionally, airport screening for those who show symptoms has been found to be "leaky" at best. According to CNN senior medical correspondent Elizabeth Cohen, she was shocked and horrified at the lack of screening for Ebola at an Atlanta airport after coming back from Liberia. "I expected that they were going to take my temperature, they were going to ask me lots of questions, but they didn't," Cohen said.

This makes the CDC's claim that 100% of travelers are carefully screened before boarding an airplane completely ludicrous., and adds another layer of danger to air travel.

Proximity

Flying in tight quarters with up to hundreds of people from different areas of the world is dicey at best when it comes to avoiding an Ebola infection, should the virus be on board. We have been led to believe that Ebola can only spread through direct contact (which if true, still raises several concerns), however, some virologists are openly questioning this dangerous CDC assumption. As reported by the LA Times:

...some also question the official assertion that Ebola cannot be transmitted through the air. In late 1989, virus researcher Charles L. Bailey supervised the government's response to an outbreak of Ebola among several dozen rhesus monkeys housed for research in Reston, Va., a suburb of Washington.

What Bailey learned from the episode informs his suspicion that the current strain of Ebola afflicting humans might be spread through tiny liquid droplets propelled into the air by coughing or sneezing. "We know for a fact that the virus occurs in sputum and no one has ever done a study [disproving that] coughing or sneezing is a viable means of transmitting," he said. Unqualified assurances that Ebola is not spread through the air, Bailey said, are "misleading."

If a virus can be transmitted by air, this makes an Ebola infected individual a sincere threat during air travel.

Immune suppression

A serious issue with air travel, but vastly underappreciated, is the mega dose of EMF radiation that is inflicted upon its passengers. With amounts that are 20-100 times more than the "safe" exposure (according to the EPA), it is a severely concentrated assault on the biological function of your body, resulting in serious immune suppression.

Several effects have been noted on the body in presence of EMF's, including the exacerbation of existing symptoms, and accelerating microorganism replication. In other words, speeding up infections!

Since a fully functional immune system is your best natural defense against an Ebola virus, having it severely suppressed on an international flight while EMF's are possibly exacerbating and speeding up a poorly screened passenger who has the Ebola virus, is a recipe for disaster.

For all these reasons, it is important to avoid air travel at all costs during this stage of the outbreak. However, if you do need to travel by air, ensure you read Protect Yourself From Ebola, and Dangers of Airtravel. If you do need to travel, be sure to make your immune system bullet proof.
