Water. You can’t live without it, but in a survival scenario, bad water could be the reason you don’t make it. In this episode, Dr. Joe Alton discusses various ways to deal with questionable water, including disinfection methods, filtering, getting fresh water from salt water, and much more.

Also, you may want to hear about a new virus about as much as you’d like a hole in the head, but Ebola-like Marburg may be worth knowing about. Dr. Alton (Bones) tells you what you need to know in a calm, reasoned manner (In other words, don’t worry, odds of it leaving its place of origin is very small).

Plus, Dr. Alton answers a question from a listener about the passing of a friend from a stroke. What you need to know about this often life-threatening event.
