"Ebola virus that is similar to HIV/AIDS are still not found a cure. However, to prevent the virus does not extend, is actually quite easy, namely the tobacco is processed into a vaccine," said Prof. Sutiman in Malang, Monday, August 25, 2014.

According to him, the Ebola virus is transmitted through the contact of body or saliva and can damage the circulatory system to the blood vessels rupture. Symptoms of Ebola virus in a person, he said, of which is marked by the body feels hot for two days to three weeks, sore throat, muscle ached, headache, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Based on WHO records of 1,716 cases of Ebola virus, among which 1,350 people died. And people died because the Ebola virus is prevalent in West Africa, Brinee, Guinea Sierre Leone, Liberia, Negeria, and a number of countries in the African continent.

"If you look at the condition, the terrible, especially medicine and has not been found yet," he said. Furthermore, Prof. Sutiman says that tobacco has many health benefits. It has been known since it was first discovered in the United States.

The Europeans brought the American tobacco to Europe for drugs made ​​from 1500 AD to the present. According to him, in addition used to treat several diseases, tobacco can also be made to prevent ebola virus vaccine.

Special for the ebola virus, in the tobacco plant has tobacco muzaic virus and it can be inserted antibody genes to antiebola. So, he said, the tobacco plants could produce antiebola vaccines.

"Therefore, if we were from the University of Brawijaya is believed and were appointed to the vaccine, we ara ready," he said. But, said Sutiman, to develop such a vaccine on the market is very difficult because the problem is very complex, although he believes if the hoopla behind the ebola virus will emerge a new vaccine.

According to him, Indonesia has always been a potential market for the ebola virus vaccine. "Imagine, how many millions of people who should be vaccinated, well, it's a business, but to make the vaccine is very easy and the raw materials from tobacco that thrives in Indonesia," he said further.

Therefore, he called on all parties, especially the government, are not easily ingested global campaign that could destroy the tobacco biological wealth in Indonesia because Indonesia has a kind of tobacco varieties and are not owned in many parts of the world.

There is a kind of Indonesian tobacco can not live in other areas, such as Madura, Jember, and Temanggung tobacco. Under these conditions, only natural that the Dutch was very happy while colonized Indonesia because tobacco is originally from the USA, then brought to Europe that was to be used as a medicine since the year 1500 AD.

"Long-term conditions and the extent of this impact should be studied in order not to harm the country, as we have already experienced in the coconut oil," he said. He asserted, "So, this tobacco-related campaigns do not inconsequential, let alone to destroy it because to comply with the world's tar and nicotine, as we knew just motivated purely business competition." *** [EKA FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | REPUBLIKA]
