Certain genes provide immunity to Ebola – could virus have been engineered to target people with specific genes? …(Read Steve Quayles Book, “Breath No Evil”!)

New research shows that your genetic makeup could serve as a natural barrier to the deadly Ebola virus.

According to a new study published just days ago in the journal Science, researchers who infected a group of specially bred mice with the virus “saw a range of reactions, from zero [symptoms] to death by hemorrhagic fever,” The Washington Post reported, citing the study’s findings.

The scientists were studying the varied reactions to the disease, and were specifically measuring how different genes in the mice altered the course of the viral infection. In doing so, researchers were able to determine which genes in humans are more vulnerable to death by the virus.

The study is the first truly viable mouse study involving the Ebola virus, which has killed about 5,000 people in West Africa and elsewhere, making it the worst outbreak of the disease since it was discovered in 1976. The study’s results are important to the development of proper lifesaving treatments for the virus and even a successful vaccine, as well as “just trying to understand how it works,” the Post reported. In order for that to occur, researchers have to infect animals with similar DNA and genetic makeup in order to see how they react.

Disease is not always fatal
