I knew that as an ex-smoker, had increased risk of developing certain diseases and cancer

The story of Alex

An elderly man with white cap smiling

I knew that as an ex-smoker, had increased risk of developing certain diseases and cancer. But when a friend asked me if I had done the test for abdominal aortic aneurysm , I said "what´s that?".

My friend was 67 when his doctor recommended a test to see if he had an abdominal aortic aneurysm. The test showed a small aneurysm and had surgery a few days later. Now, my friend is recovering and takes very seriously its role to warn their friends about the danger of this disease.

As I used to smoke, and as I exercise regularly and I have tall cholesterol and blood pressure, have taller risk of developing this disease. So my friend was worried about me and asked me to take the test. I was lucky, because the evidence indicated that he had an aneurysm. However, my doctor recommended several things you can do to reduce my risk of developing this disease. The eating healthy foods and being more active help me to reduce my risk of developing heart disease. Exercise also helps to strengthen my muscles and my heart.

Now, if someone asks what is an abdominal aortic aneurysm, you can not say: "What is that?".

What you need to know about Ebola

What is Ebola?

Ebola virus is the cause of a viral hemorrhagic fever disease. Symptoms include: fever, headache, joint and muscle aches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, lack of appetite, and abnormal bleeding. Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to ebolavirus though 8-10 days is most common.

How is Ebola transmitted?

Ebola is transmitted through direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected symptomatic person or though exposure to objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with infected secretions.

Can Ebola be transmitted through the air?

No. Ebola is not a respiratory disease like the flu, so it is not transmitted through the air.

Can I get Ebola from contaminated food or water?

No. Ebola is not a food-borne illness. It is not a water-borne illness.

Can I get Ebola from a person who is infected but doesn’t have any symptoms?

No. Individuals who are not symptomatic are not contagious. In order for the virus to be transmitted, an individual would have to have direct contact with an individual who is experiencing symptoms.

Are there any cases of individuals contracting Ebola in the U.S.?

No.

What is being done to prevent ill passengers in West Africa from getting on a plane?

CDC is assisting with active screening and education efforts on the ground in West Africa to prevent sick travelers from getting on planes. In addition, airports in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea are screening all outbound passengers for Ebola symptoms, including fever, and passengers are required to respond to a healthcare questionnaire. CDC is also surging support in the region by deploying 50 additional workers to help build capacity on the ground.

What is CDC doing in the U.S.?

On the remote possibility that an ill passenger enters the U.S., CDC has protocols in place to protect against further spread of disease. These include notification to CDC of ill passengers on a plane before arrival, investigation of ill travelers, and, if necessary, isolation. CDC has also provided guidance to airlines for managing ill passengers and crew and for disinfecting aircraft. CDC has issued a Health Alert Notice reminding U.S. healthcare workers of the importance of taking steps to prevent the spread of this virus, how to test and isolate suspected patients and how they can protect themselves from infection.

What about ill Americans with Ebola who are being brought to the United States for treatment? How is CDC protecting the American public?

CDC has very well-established protocols in place to ensure the safe transport and care of patients with infectious diseases back to the United States. These procedures cover the entire process -- from patients leaving their bedside in a foreign country to their transport to an airport and boarding a non-commercial airplane equipped with a special transport isolation unit, to their arrival at a medical facility in the United States that is appropriately equipped and staffed to handle such cases. CDC’s role is to ensure that travel and hospitalization is done to minimize risk of spread of infection and to ensure that the American public is protected. Patients were evacuated in similar ways during SARS.

For a healthy city: The best way to burn fat in men

There are hundreds of ways for men to burn fat and get rid of that extra weight. The problem is to discover which method is best for you. You know from the beginning what diet and exercise work is the best way to do it.

Increase your metabolism

The main reason why a well-toned abdomen becomes a beer belly is your metabolism, which used to be young and vibrant and becomes static and lazy . Increase metabolism should be the primary goal when trying to burn fat. Metabolism is a chemical reaction that decomposes organic matter and uses fat as energy.So the higher the metabolism, burning more fat. For men who want to increase your metabolic rate, the best way is to consume more protein. Simply by increasing protein intake, you can lose up to eight pounds (3.6 kg) extra a year compared to a person who does not. Breakfast should consist of eggs and lean meat like turkey bacon. The snacks rich in protein are importants throughout the day to maintain high energy. Examples are nuts and cheese sticks. Your other two meals should consist of lean meats, poultry and fish.

Eating all the time

A common misconception is to think that skipping meals help you lose weight. This causes the metabolism to slow down, making weight loss more difficult. Spread your meals throughout the day is the best way to attack fat. Eat six small throughout the day instead of three large meals meals. Includes eggs, lean meats, fish, chicken and almonds to the daily consumption. These foods will help keep your metabolism elevated throughout the day.

 

Exercise

Exercise is a critical part to keep the metabolism elevated. Lifting weights is not the best option as it leads to bulking up instead of slimming. The exercises cardio like running, boxing and cycling are all good examples of what to do. Make an intense routine 30 minutes to an hour, three times a week. Combining these exercises with proper caloric intake, results in your body is a fat burning machine, lean and slender that works even while you sleep.
