Ebola Awareness: Salt water?

Hi guys,

So I was about to leave for work this morning, and I gave my neighbor a short ride. She said her father called her this morning saying that T.B. Joshua (a big pastor in Nigeria) said that you should bathe with warm salt water to prevent yourself from getting Ebola. My friend and I both rolled our eyes. By the time I got to work, the news had spread like wildfire and the medical team has been trying to spread the word out that bathing with or drinking salt water to prevent or cure ebola is FALSE!!!!!!!!

Not only can salt not kill viruses, but ingesting too much salt will only have a negative effect on your kidneys. SO PLEASE O, tell your family and friends!

Continue washing your hand regularly, and additionally use hand sanitizers.

Thanks!
Berry.

  3. Nobody ever told me that, no one ever sent the BC to me. I found out when people used their PMs and DPs to mock it. It don't know the one that's more painful, the false news or the attention we paid to it. We aint serious in this country, let's be honest. If only we paid this much attention to really serious stuffs, our country won't be where it is now.

  4. Lol,I can't count the number of pings and calls I got yesterday morning from various people telling me to take a bath with salt before 5AM,some people even went ahead to say that it was to prevent getting affected by the gas the govt was going to release into the air to kill the virus. Nigerians!

  5. Everything is funny to us sha. Everything. Someone sent me a picture of Ebola salt and something else and I was like, IT'S NOT FUNNY! The person said I should see the funny side. The conversation went downhill from there.

  6. My people perish because they lack knowledge. Some people are unbelievably ignore - that's why it's good to arm yourself with knowledge (lots and lots of it). Imagine what ingesting salt can do to someone with hypertension!
