earth friendly approach
« on: April 28, 2007, 09:47:18 PM »
Hey yall. I found some interesting info. A natural treatment has been discovered. Thought this might be encouraging for everybody if you haven't heard about it.
Do a google on hiv treatment from sunflowers. A man found this natural treatment while examining a sunflowers defence from bacteria. When the plant is cut, it produces natural barriers to protect itself. Problem is, this ingrediant is very very expensive. So people are trying to mass produce it at an affordable level.
Read about it, afterall it may be the latest and greatest once available. It is a natural product from earth.
Wanted to share something I found.

Much love!

Its good to hear about chemicals that stops HIV. But it really is a long way from petri dish to consumable medicine. Many things can go wrong including that the stuff is toxic. Just because its from a plant, doesn't mean that it won't cause harm. Lots of natural things are bad for us, so lets hope that this chemical works and can be manufactured into something we can take, providing that all the testing that needs to be done show it has efficacy and is safe enough to take.

"Dicaffeoyl quinic acid (DCQA) can prevent the HIV virus from reproducing, at least in cell cultures"

Many substances show antiviral activity "in vitro", but fail to be effective when applied to human organism.
I'd better wait and see.
