Bowling for Ebola Show

Health Matters Radio Show
Health Matters Radio Show

Health Matters issues our take of the 2014 Ebola panic, in which 80% of American voters favored quarantines for healthcare workers, despite the fact that there was no known benefit. Add that to the 64% of people who don’t get the flu vaccine, and the 1-6% of people who will not even vaccinate their children, and this is why we stay on the air despite bad journalism. We also talk about drunken bicycling, chikungunya virus, and safe bowling practices.

Tip: According to the CDC, Ebola is transmitted by direct contact with the body fluids of a person who has symptoms of Ebola disease.


New York Times asks, "can you get Ebola from a bowling ball?" No.

Can you get Ebola from the toilet seat? Not unless it's covered with blood and body fluids of an Ebola victim

Can you get Ebola from mosquitoes? No.
