      Brace yourself:

      Nausea and vomiting.
      Diarrhea (may be bloody)
      Red eyes.
      Raised rash.
      Chest pain and cough.
      Stomach pain.
      Severe weight loss.
      Bleeding, usually from the eyes, and bruising (people near death may bleed from other orifices, such as ears, nose and rectum)

      Not a nice way to go…..but about 40% of people survive. But you can see there aplenty fluids generated that could spread the Ebola and that’s why medical staff have to suit up!

      Don’t forget to vote!

      Hi Emilija,

      There are so many may be I would try to focus on the ingredients as well so that you can check them in other food as well to avoid them- Fried desserts is on the top as its already rich in sugar and then you are frying it; Margarine(trans fats); Potato chips or French fries contain acrylamide, a known carcinogen that is formed when foods are baked or fried at high temperatures; Processed Meat- meats preserved by smoking, curing, or salting, or that contain chemical preservatives, are related to an increased risk of colon cancer; Doughnuts- they generally upset the blood sugar balance. There are so many that we should avoid…..

      I suppose Kevin has answered for some other question here 🙂
