Overnight Open Thread (10-6-2014) – Back in the USA Edition

So between the yakuza and the typhoon and airline ebola I managed to cheat death....again. But now very, very tired after 24 hours of no sleep. This cheating death thing is really a young man's game.

The Last Days of an Ebola Infected Person

33-year-old Marie Finda Kamono of Guinea became very tired and started vomiting. Within a few days she was dead of ebola - the fifth person in her family to die from the disease.

Lost Sense of Smell Is a Strong Predictor of Death Within 5 Years

During the five-year gap between the two tests, 430 of the original participants (or 12.5% of the total number) had died. Of these, 39% who had failed the first smell test died before the second test, compared to 19% of those who had moderate smell loss on the first test, and just 10% of those with a healthy sense of smell. Despite taking issues such as age, nutrition, smoking habits, poverty and overall health into account, researchers found those with the poorest sense of smell were still at greatest risk. The tip of the olfactory nerve, which contains the smell receptors, is the only part of the human nervous system that is continuously regenerated by stem cells. The production of new smell cells declines with age, and this is associated with a gradual reduction in our ability to detect and discriminate odors. Loss of smell may indicate that the body is entering a state of disrepair, and is no longer capable of repairing itself.
