ABC News echoes Ebola transmission warnings issued by Natural News weeks ago

Ebola transmission

(NaturalNews) ABC News chief health and medical editor Dr. Richard Besser is now asking the very same questions I've been raising here on Natural News as the Health Ranger. In an article published on the ABC affiliate WFAA website [1], it's now reported that "Besser said he does not agree with the Centers for Disease Control, which says any U.S. hospital can safely care for an Ebola patient."

Dr. Besser goes on to call for Ebola patients to be treated in level-4 biohazard facilities where staff are properly trained in the use of qualified hazmat equipment. This echoes the very same warning I issued nearly two weeks ago with the publication of an article entitled The five biggest lies about Ebola being pushed by government and mass media.

Less than a week later, I also warned that the CDC was endangering public safety in America by making wild, careless assumptions about the transmission vectors of Ebola. Today's double-confirmed infection of a health care worker in a Dallas hospital now underscores the importance of that warning, and it's exactly why Dr. Richard Besser is presently asking almost the exact same questions.

Regular hospitals aren't qualified to treat Ebola victims

"To do it safely, health care workers need to train and practice using protective equipment like they have been doing at the Emory and Nebraska facilities," Dr. Besser told ABC News. [1] "I would never have gone into an Ebola ward in Africa without being dressed and decontaminated by experts -- health care workers here should expect no less."

And yet the Dallas Ebola patient, Thomas Duncan, was allowed to be treated in a hospital that clearly did not have the equipment or training to successfully contain the Ebola virus. The risks of the situation are only compounded by the CDC's continued insistence that Ebola can only be spread through "direct contact" with body fluids and therefore cannot infect health workers who are wearing isolation gear. Until the CDC comes clean and admits that Ebola can be spread via contaminated surfaces and aerosolized (airborne) particles, health workers will continue to underestimate the potential of Ebola's transmission vectors.

This is no time for sloppy science and shortcut medicine

Underestimating Ebola is a very serious mistake... one that could ultimately lead to an estimated 30 million deaths in the United States alone if an uncontrolled outbreak spreads across the nation. The rapid replication of Ebola among victims means that nations have very narrow windows of opportunity to contain the outbreaks before they spread beyond control.

It is bewildering that many hospital staff operating in America today are less informed about transmission vectors of Ebola than online bloggers. While medical staff are running around with wholly inadequate protective gear, online independent writers and bloggers are screaming about "positive pressure hazmat suits" and "full-face respirators," apparently to no avail.

Somehow, this message is still not getting through, and health authorities continue to interact with Ebola patients and possible second-generation infection victims without taking proper medical precautions. See this article on Natural News for a visual look at the inadequate safety gear still being worn by front-line medical staff.

This isn't some Big Pharma drug trial where the negative results can simply be removed from the study samples after the fact in order to make the drug look good. Ebola can't be retroactively rigged with dishonest science to trick the public. Once the infections happen, all the politics and medical doublespeak in the world can't reverse those infections. Ebola, in fact, may be the first thing in a long time that forces western medicine to face reality, absent the quackery, corruption and science fraud that characterizes the industry today.

If you're skeptical of that description, check out the launch of a powerful new documentary called "Bought." It's available at www.BoughtMovie.com and it's a must-see film to help explain the way modern medicine really works.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
