Q. Ebola is serious I heard that Ebola is serious disease crapping out the inner lining of our intestines, the lining of our tongue peeling off, blood comming out of every hole in our body, including our nips. not too much fun. Could anyone tell me about the treatment for this. So this can educate me and other who read this.

A. Ebola is classified as a biosafety level 4 agent (EXTREME HAZARD-full precautions required, NO KNOWN vaccine/cure), as well as a Category A bioterrorism agent by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. and that's because it's highly violent and with no cure or vaccine.

Q. Masturbation - How serious is it? One of my friend who is 32 years old caught into the habit of masturbation for the past 3 years. He is seeking for help to overcome it. Now i want to know to help him and also like to know for myself about the GOOD and BAD results of masturbation.

A. Masturbation is something that a large percentage of the worlds population does at one point or another. It is normal, a normal part of life as you begin to explore your body.

As long as you do it safely and within the confines of your own home you will be fine. Just make sure to not let it rule your life. For example, dont stay home from work just because you want to masturbate. Make sure you keep your priorities in order.

Q. why is fibromyalgia not taken seriously? We take some illness like cancer, very serious. But why is fibromyalgia not taken seriously?

A. You are the 30th person who is asking this question to me. Well, in reality, fibromyalgia is taken quite a bit more seriously than it was just a few short years ago. This is probably due to the fact that recent information regarding certain chemical substances seems to validate a physical origin for many of the substances of fibromyalgia. For example, lower levels of Serotonin in the brain may point to why some fibromyalgia patients have such low pain threshold. Likewise, higher levels of a chemical known as Substance P in many individuals with fibromyalgia speaks of this as well. There also seems to be a great amount of disagreement over the involvement of various mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression.
