    Not exactly apocalyptic in scale but a serious health risk to the people in the region. There has been an out break of drug resistant TB in Papua New Guinea.

    What have you learned from this whole Ebola scare? How has it impacted your preps? Has it started to impact you financially? Do you think Ebola is real or a front for US troops to land on African soil?

    Thought I would share this. This is public information regarding the State of Oklahoma's outline for how to deal with an epidemic. Specifically DOC. But I am sure other agencies would be similar. I found some of this information eye opening and interesting...

    The story looks like its straight from a history book about the dark ages. Doctors without Borders tried to setup a clinic in Haiti to treat cholera patients. Instead of being welcomed by the local people, the doctors were met with fear, a small riot and rock throwing. The situation got...

    I was just watching this Dutch tv-program about Q-fever. Q-fever is a disease harmful for goats, but humans can get infected too. There's a lot of trouble with it in the Netherlands right now. Around 2200 people got infected and 10 died (not very big numbers, but it isn't a very big country)...
