This month on American Abilities, we present a new series, "Stories from the War Zone". This program goes with troops in Afghanistan and Iraq as they fight the enemy. We see how troops conduct dangerous missions in a variety of circumstances. We hear from many troops as they share thoughts about what they do and reflect on the greater goals of the fight. The viewer will understand why som many war veterans unfortunately suffer from hearing loss due to the constant explosions of munitions. 

 

Ebola is a deadly virus that has flared up in West Africa this year. We will take you to Africa and show you what health officials, and world organizations are doing to combat this virus.

 

This month we will visit Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif. to see how returning veterans cope with injuries that have changed their lives forever. 

 

Also did you know many ailments may be prevented or cured if detected early? Man Alive, is a cartoon that illustrates the importance of not ignoring signs your body might be in trouble.

 

And finally, we catch up with Charlie Chaplin as a zany Pawn Shop worker who reeks havoc in a small store.

 

Join us Sundays 10AM on CW-16 and for more information go to americanabilitiestv.com  American Abilities Television Network, your original media source for hearing health.

The Origins of Ebola in West Africa

An epidemic of Ebola virus disease (EVD), the most widespread in history, is ongoing in certain West African countries.[11][12] It has caused significant mortality, with a reported case fatality rate (CFR) of 70.8%.[13] It began in Guinea in December 2013 and then spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone.[13] A small outbreak of twenty cases occurred in Nigeria, and one case occurred in Senegal. Following a 42-day waiting period, both countries were declared disease-free as of 20 October 2014.[14][15][7] Cases of secondary infections of medical workers in the United States and Spain have occurred,[16][17] neither of which has spread to the general population. A single case has been identified in Mali.[18][19]

Man Alive

In animated cartoons, an analogy is made between a man with a badly functioning car and a man with physical symptoms which could indicate the presence of a neoplasm. The various stages of denial are illustrated. Unprofessional advice is heard, and quick fix remedies are tried. The car owner finally goes to a good garage and pays heavily to have his car repaired, a bill which would have been small if he had taken his car in at the first sign of trouble. The man decides not to make the same mistake with his body that he made with his car. He goes to see his doctor because he has had indigestion, one of the possible symptoms of cancer. Some myths about cancer are debunked. Cancer therapies are outlined. The growth of cancer cells within the body is illustrated. The seven danger signals of cancer are given. Yearly physical check-ups are advised.
