With ill people travelling ’round the U.S. and internationally on buses or airplanes, you would be wise to wear gloves and even surgical masks while flying. Carry oil of oregano for surface and interior infections, and take olive leaf capsules daily–both of these are natural antibiotics, to which the human race has not developed a resistance. This alert is relevant indefinitely, because adequate measures are not being taken to mitigate these modern-day plagues (click here to view a Natural News article explaining how the authorities are actually doing the opposite). MRSA (a flesh-eating virus) is on the rise, as are antibiotic-resistant tuberculosis, rubella/measles, chickenpox/shingles, mites, lice, swine flu, ebola, pertussis/whooping cough and MERS (a deadly respiratory infection). It is better to be safe than sorry, and wearing gloves is just one essential component of dressing in the traditional manner (chic people like Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn didn’t go out without gloves). Also, intelligent fellow-passengers will understand when you protect yourself by wearing a surgical mask on a plane, where pathogen-laced air is recycled and breathed by everyone, causing what are known as community-acquired diseases. If some rubes give you odd looks or make ignorant wise-cracks, just remember that their cavalier attitude may put them out of their misery and that you will likely be the elegant survivor. Stay healthy and look great doing it. Many of these current scourges are incurable….
