In the light of all the hysteria around Ebola, I came across an article from WebMD, one of my favorites for medical updates.

Of course there are germs we'd best avoid, but in ordinary life, the likelihood of meeting them are remote. Moreover, there much data on the importance of exposing ourselves, and especially our children to as many foreign proteins (including germs) as possible. Asthma is a prime example of the effects of avoiding germs and dogs. P.S. There is much money to be made in the war on germs! This article by a dentist makes important points and is worth a few moments of your time. GERMS: GOOD AND BAD

The family must deal with the unwanted guests, their disease, the Cuban Navy, an approaching hurricane, and the U.S. Coast Guard turning them away from safety. Deadly Passage is a thoughtful medical, political high seas thriller. I HAVEN'T DONE AS WELL WITH THIS NOVEL AS I EXPECTED. IT'S AN EXCITING AND RELEVANT STORY. DEADLY PASSAGE
