Paul Craig Roberts and Guest Scientists about #Ebola: Is The US Government The Master Criminal Of Our Time?

Guest post by Paul Craig Roberts and two scientists about #Ebola:

UPDATE: As I read this notice from, a service of the US National Institutes of Health, the US Government and Pharmaceutical corporations have been conducting ebola tests on humans.

This is official confirmation of Dr. Boyle and Dr. Broderick’s reports that the US government has conducted ebola experiments. Perhaps the vaccine was not effective, and those on whom the experiment was conducted came down with ebola and perhaps also employees in the US bio-warfare laboratories located in Africa where the experiment was conducted.

It appears that the test consists of giving an ebola vaccine and then exposing the unaware person to ebola, apparently an engineered version for bio-warfare. Whatever the tests are, it is clear that Boyle and Broderick in their articles below are correct that experimentation with ebola by the US government is underway.

Two Scientists Say Ebola Originated In US Bio-warfare Lab

Experts have brought to the public’s attention that ebola is a genetically modified organism developed in US biowarfare laboratories in Africa.

In the two articles below reproduced from Tom Feeley’s Information Clearing House
(a good site worthy of your support), Dr. Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois and
Dr. Cyril Broderick of the University of Liberia and the University of Delaware provide their fact-based assessments. Dr. Boyle drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, the US implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention.

For speaking out, both Boyle and Broderick will be viciously attacked by the US print and TV media. Remember the case of Gary Webb who exposed the CIA’s drug-running that supported the Contras in Nicaragua. The cocaine that launched the War on Drugs was brought in by the CIA.

These are the URLs for the articles by Dr. Boyle and Dr. Broderick:

US Bio-warfare Laboratories in West Africa Are The Origins Of The Ebola Epidemic

Professor Francis A. Boyle interviewed by Aggeliki Dimopoulou

Could Ebola Have Escaped From US Bio-warfare Labs? American law professor Francis A. Boyle, answers questions for and reveals that USA have been using West Africa as an offshore to circumvent the Convention on Biological Weapons and do bio-warfare work.

Is Ebola just a result of health crisis in Africa – because of the large gaps in personnel, equipment and medicines – as some experts suggest?

That isn’t true at all. This is just propaganda being put out by everyone. It seems to me, that what we are dealing with here is a biological warfare work that was conducted at the bio-warfare laboratories set up by the USA on the west coast of Africa. And if you look at a map produced by the Center of  Disease Control you can see where these laboratories are located. And they are across the heart of  Ebola epidemic, at the west coast of Africa. So, I think these laboratories, one or more of them, are the origins of the Ebola epidemic.

US government agencies are supposed to do defensive biological warfare research in these labs. Is there any information about what are they working on?

Well, that’s what they tell you. But if you study what the CDC and the Pentagon do… They say it is defensive, but this is just for public relation purposes than anything. It’s a trick. What it means is what they decide at these bio-warfare labs. They say, “well we have to develop a vaccine”, so that’s their defensive argument. Then what they do is to develop the bio-warfare agent itself. Usually by means of  DNA genetic engineering. And then they say, “well to get the vaccine we have to develop the bio-warfare agent” – usually by DNA genetic engineering – and then they try to work on the vaccine. So it’s two uses type of work. I haven’t read all these bio-warfare contracts but that’s typical of the way the Pentagon CDC has been doing this since at least the 1980’s. I have absolute proof from a Pentagon document that the Center of Disease Control was doing bio-warfare work for the Pentagon in Sierra Leone, the heart of the outbreak, as early as 1988. And indeed it was probably before then because they would have had to construct the lab and that would have taken some time. So we know that Fort Detrick and the Center for Disease Control are over there, Tulane University, which is a well-known bio-warfare center here in USA – I would say notorious for it – is there. They all have been over there.

In addition, USA government made sure that Liberia, a former colony of  the USA, never became a party to the Biological Weapons Convention, so they were able to do bio – warfare work over there – going back to 1980’s – the USA government, in order to circumvent the Biological Weapons Convention. Likewise, Guinea the third state affected here – and there is an increase now – didn’t even sign the Biological Weapons Convention. So, it seems to me, that the different agencies of the US government have been always there try to circumvent the Biological Weapons Convention and engage bio-warfare work. Indeed, we had one of these two lab bio-warriors admit in the NY Times that they were not over there for the purpose of either screening or treating people. That’s not what these labs are about. These labs are there in my opinion to do bio-warfare work for different agencies of the US government. Indeed, many of them were set up by USAID. And everyone knows that USAID is penetrated all up and down by the CIA and CIA has been involved in bio-warfare work as well.

Are we being told the truth about Ebola? Is that big outbreak began all of a sudden? How does it spread so quickly?

The whole outbreak that we see in the west coast of Africa, this is Zaire/Ebola. The most dangerous of five subtypes of Ebola. Zaire/Ebola originated 3500 km from the west coast of Africa. There is absolutely no way that it could have been transmitted 3500 km. And if you read the recently published Harvard study on the DNA analysis of the west Africas’ Zaire/Ebola there is no explanation about how the virus moved there. And indeed, it’s been reported in the NY Times that the Zaire/Ebola was found there in 1976, and then WHO ordered to be set to Porton Down in Britain, which is the British equivalent to Fort Detrick, where they manufacture all the biological weapons for Britain. And then Britain sent it to the US Center for Disease Control. And we know for a fact that the Center for Disease Control has been involved in biological warfare work. And then it appears, at least from whatever I’ve been able to put together in a public record, that the CDC and several others US bio-warriors exported Zaire/Ebola to west Africa, to their labs there, where they were doing bio-warfare work on it. So, I believe this is the origins of the Zaire/Ebola pandemic we are seeing now in west Africa.

Why would they do that?

Why would they do that? As I suggested to try to circumvent the Biological Weapons Convention to which the US government is a party. So, always bio-warriors do use offensive and defensive bio-warfare work, violating the Biological Weapons Convention. So effectively they try to offshore it into west Africa where Liberia is not a party and Guinea is not a party. Sierra Leone is a party. But in Sierra Leone and Liberia there were disturbances which kept the world from really paying attention of what was going on in these labs.

USA sent troops to «fight» Ebola. What do you think about that move?

The US military just invaded Liberia. They send in the 101st Airborne Division to Liberia. That’s an elite division of combat and they have no training to provide medical treatment to anyone. They are there to establish a military base in Liberia. And the British are doing the same in Sierra Leone. The French are already in Mali and Senegal. So, they’re not sending military people there to treat these people. No, I’m sorry.

Weren’t they afraid Ebola’s going to go out of control even in the USA or EU in a massive way?

It’s already gone in the USA and the European Union. So, there it is. Which raises the question: Was this Zaire/Ebola weaponized at any of these labs? I don’t have an answer to that question. I am trying to get an answer. And therefore it is much more dangerous than the WHO and the CDC are telling everyone. The WHO and the CDC are up to their eyeballs in this. They know all about what ‘s going on. It was the WHO that ordered the original Zaire/Ebola in 1976 to be sent to Porton Down for biological warfare purposes. So this could be more dangerous than the WHO and the CDC are saying.

And you can’t believe anything they telling you because they are involved in that. But certainly I can’t say it has been weaponized. I don’t know that yet for sure. I have the Harvard genetic analysis of it. When I was in college I had very good courses in genetics, and biochemistry and population biology but I am not a professor of genetics. I have a friend who is a professor of genetics and he is going to take a look at this and try to figure out if there’s been DNA genetic engineering perpetrated or performed on the Zaire/Ebola. Is there a genetically modified organism at work, a GMO? I don’t know. But if a GMO is at work that’s a pretty good sign it’s been weaponized. But in anyway, it is far more dangerous than the CDC and the WHO are telling anyone, because it’s clearly transmitted for a certain distance – we don’t know how far – by air. Breathing and coughing and sneezing. So, anyone treating people, seems to me, are going to need not only a protective suit but probably a breathing apparatus, at minimum. And you saw what happened to that Spanish nurse and that Spanish priest that were brought in, infected with Ebola. So right now the WHO and the CDC are telling healthcare workers that in addition to suits they need breathing apparatuses. So, again, I don’t believe you can trust anything the WHO or the CDC are telling you. And I really don’t know about the European Health Agency… If they‘re believing the WHO and the CDC then, in my opinion, they ‘re not properly protecting the health of the European people. And it’s simply bizarre that the CDC and WHO are relegating the screenings to the people in west Africa. It’s just bizarre. They need to be protecting health of their own people and they aren’t doing that. I read some of the European press but I’m not sure precisely what the European Health Agency is recommending but they certainly can’t rely upon the WHO and the CDC. As for Greece, I know you have your own Health Ministry there and they cannot rely upon them at all, as well.

Some experts told recently the Forbes magazine that even ISIS could use Ebola as a biological weapon. I would like to have your comment on that.

This is total propaganda. These people are trying to distract public opinion from the fact. My opinion is that the origins of the current pandemic came out of the USA bio-warfare labs in west Africa. That’s what is going on here. ISIS has nothing to do with this. That’s just propaganda which is trying to scare and distract public attention away of what really is going on here. They doing the same thing here in USA. That’s what we need to concentrate on. Number one. And number two? We have to find out: was this Zaire/Ebola GMOed by either Porton Down or CDC or these US bio-warfare labs? It is far more dangerous than it currently appears. That’s the real issue. And I don’t have an answer to that question. It was the US government labs that research here. I’m not saying that Ebola was released deliberately by these labs. I have no evidence to that. It could have escaped. But this is really what we need to be focusing on. Not ISIS. It’s ridiculous, it’s preposterous.

What do you think should be done?

I would encourage the Greek government to convene an emergency meeting of your top health science people and to look into this on comprehensive bases and figure out what to do under these circumstances to protect the health of people of Greece. In particular they must not believe anything they are being told by the WHO and CDC. There is a need of open objective minds here about what is really going on. I think this needs to be done.

Back in 1985, I was down in Nicaragua investigating atrocities of the Contras there and all of a sudden the country was hit with an outbreak of a hemorrhaging Dengue Fever which is similar to Ebola. And it seemed pretty suspicious to me. So I met with some of the highest level officials of the Nicaraguan government and said: “you know, this very well could be US bio-warfare against Nicaragua. They did the same thing to Cuba. And my advice is you convene health care medical experts, not politicians, to look into this. And if you agree with me and that’s the result, file a complaint with the UN Security Council for violation of the Biological Weapons Convention against the USA”. And eventually that is what they did. Here I am not recommending the Greek authorities to file a complaint against the USA. What I am recommending is the same thing I did to the Nicaraguans. That you need to convene some of your top experts geneticists, doctors, etc.

And don’t get anyone in this group who has ever done any type of research for any agency of the US government. They are completely unreliable. Get Greeks experts completely independent of the US government or the British government. It’s funny here in the USA when the media want to get experts on this, all the experts they talk to are people who have done biological warfare work for the USA. And they are up to their eyeballs on this Ebola. And doing research on this Ebola. Of course they’re not going to give you proper advice. So, find this experts and make sure they never done any research for USA or Britain on any of this stuff  but are qualified and can give you a qualified opinion of what is really going on and how dangerous this stuff is. And then aim to protect the health of Greek people. You definitely don’t have to wait for the European Union in Brussels to do it for you. I’m not telling Greece what to do. I’m just telling you how to do it. And this should be done immediately. It should have been done already. But ok, better late than ever.

Ebola Is A GMO Product Of US Bio-warfare Laboratories

Dear World Citizens:

I have read a number of articles from your Internet outreach as well as articles from other sources about the casualties in Liberia and other West African countries about the human devastation caused by the Ebola virus. About a week ago, I read an article published in the Internet news summary publication of the Friends of Liberia that said that there was an agreement that the initiation of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was due to the contact of a two-year old child with bats that had flown in from the Congo. That report made me disconcerted with the reporting about Ebola, and it stimulated a response to the “Friends of Liberia,” saying that African people are not ignorant and gullible, as is being implicated. A response from Dr. Verlon Stone said that the article was not theirs, and that “Friends of Liberia” was simply providing a service. He then asked if he could publish my letter in their Internet forum. I gave my permission, but I have not seen it published. Because of the widespread loss of life, fear, physiological trauma, and despair among Liberians and other West African citizens, it is incumbent that I make a contribution to the resolution of this devastating situation, which may continue to recur, if it is not properly and adequately confronted. I will address the situation in five (5) points:


Horowitz (1998) was deliberate and unambiguous when he explained the threat of new diseases in his text, Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola – Nature, Accident or Intentional. In his interview with Dr. Robert Strecker in Chapter 7, the discussion, in the early 1970s, made it obvious that the war was between countries that hosted the KGB and the CIA, and the ‘manufacture’ of ‘AIDS-Like Viruses’ was clearly directed at the other. In passing during the Interview, mention was made of Fort Detrick, “the Ebola Building,” and ‘a lot of problems with strange illnesses’ in “Frederick [Maryland].” By Chapter 12 in his text, he had confirmed the existence of an American Military-Medical-Industry that conducts biological weapons tests under the guise of administering vaccinations to control diseases and improve the health of “black Africans overseas.” The book is an excellent text, and all leaders plus anyone who has interest in science, health, people, and intrigue should study it. I am amazed that African leaders are making no acknowledgements or reference to these documents. Read the rest at

  3. My husband’s initial impression on this, drawn from the Japanese media plus general knowledge gained from lots of reading, was that America had an interest in kicking the Chinese out of West Africa so they can hog the resources. Getting rid of anyone who might object to a resource grab may also be on the agenda.

    When MH17 went down, my husband’s first impression from the media was an air-to-air attack, so what he is saying has value.

    Fuji Film produces an anti-viral called Avigan, which is currently in Phase 3 of clinical trials, and was aimed at influenza, but appears to be effective against ebola. It was used in the successful treatment of a patient in France. That should be big news, but outside of Japan, I’m not hearing anything. There was one press release about a week ago. I’ll see if I can locate the link and post it here later.

    I’d stock up on lots of vitamin C, and if you can obtain it, nano-silver, which the WHO has suppressed in Africa. The New York Times attacked Dr. Rima Laibow, who has been continuing to try to supply nano-sliver to Africa in a humanitarian effort, as a quack. When there is no treatment, any possibility ought to be tried, as the WHO itself said, but then hypocritically stopped the testing of nano-silver in Africa.

    Apparently, some nano-silver has made it through the blockade, and is being used without fanfare, reportedly with success. But no details yet…

    • Thanks, Pat! Very nice!
      I can confirm: vitamin C is perfect. Gary Null, who is one of the world’s biggest health gurus swears by it. We use colloidal silver for our daily needs. Also perfect remedy. I think perhaps nano-silver is similar, yes?

      Russians have Ebola vaccine that is over 90% effective. They sent it to Africa already. But I’m sure there is sabotage by the US taking place. So vaccine went to those African countries that are friendly to Russia primarily.
      Another natural Rissian remedy is cinnamon bark.
      I suspect good garlic (non-GMO, non-hybrid – as most of them are in the US; the real heirloom kind) and onion is also helpful.
      In reality, Ebola isn’t a problem, but there are forces out there that WANT and need it as a problem.

      Your hubby is right about US trying to unseat China in Africa.

      • Colloidal silver is good, and very easy to obtain, but nano-silver has been demonstrated in vitro to stop ebola virus from entering cells. I’m cutting and pasting the latest news I have just now (apologies for the length):

        Sierra Leone Government Announces Official Ebola Therapy: Nano Silver 10 PPM

        Newton, NJ: Honourable Alhaji Alpha Kanu, Sierra Leone’s Minister of Presidential and Public Affairs, announced today that based on clinical results in the Ebola-torn areas of Port Loko and elsewhere, nutrient Nano Silver 10 PPM has been declared an official approved therapy in the Ebola crisis.

        Ebola, the deadly viral disease which has killed more than 4,400 people in West Africa, has made its entrance into the United States (1 known death) and the EU (3 known deaths) where it poses a serious health threat if it spreads as it has in West Africa., Health officials are scrambling to find viable options in case of an outbreak following WHO’s announcement on August 12, 2014 clearing the way for human experimentation with untested materials of unknown safety.

        The Minister focused his announcement on one of the safest, yet most controversial natural tools in the Ebola battle, consistently linked to overcoming viral and other disease-causing organisms — Nano Silver 10 PPM. The Minister recently said, referring to Nano Silver 10 PPM for Ebola patients: “There is no illness that doesn’t have a cure. If you say that this illness does not get better, then that’s a lie because 500 people have gotten better… We already have the beds and the medicines. Sheikh Massally — he is an Imam–in Atlanta, USA, has sent the nutrient Nano Silver. This works; people are getting better.” See the Minister’s full statement here:

        Minister Kanu followed that declaration with an official announcement today that hence forward, Nano Silver 10 PPM is now part of the strategy of his country in helping people with Ebola move past the illness.

        Two of Sierra Leone’s leading newspapers, The Exclusive, and The Standard Times Press, have now reported confirmation of the Minister’s announcement: see, for example,

        Sierra Leone is one of the hardest-hit counties in the Ebola epidemic which Margaret Chan, MD, WHO Director, says is out of control and poses a threat to international peace, yet that organization has, as detailed by Minister Kanu, expressed strong opposition to trials with Nano Silver 10 PPM.

        Nano Silver 10 PPM’s well-documented benefits make it a meaningful nutritional adjunct when fighting viral and other infections. A 2009 declassified study sponsored through the United States Department of Defense found that the same Nano Silver 10 PPM (parts per million) provided to Sierra Leone by the Natural Solutions Foundation and Sheik Massally supports normal cell membrane integrity, even in the presence of the Ebola virus.

        While the Food and Drug Agency (FDA), World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) claim silver provide no benefit for Ebola (or other) patients, there was no way to know until it was given a proper test. That test was held in Sierra Leone in the past 3 weeks when Minister Kanu took personal responsibility for deploying it to the afflicted along with the Minister of Health and other officials.

        Silver is inexpensive, self-sterilizing, non-toxic and easy to use. Testing for silver, however, does not appear to be on most scientists’ radar when it comes to finding approaches to Ebola, although WHO declared it to be “ethical” to try “unproven interventions” and that there is a “moral duty” to test them, per the WHO web site:

        When Natural Solutions Foundation’s Medical Director, Rima E. Laibow, MD, addressed the assembled African Ministers of Health in 2007 at an African Health Summit in Mombasa, she warned them about emergent viruses.

        On August 1, 2014 in her Open Letter to the Heads of State and Ministers of Health of the four Ebola-stricken countries, urging them to consider a particular nutrient, Nano Silver 10 PPM, in the Ebola crisis. She advised them that its use is part of a prudent program of powerful, safe immune support, since it is the precise material used in the DoD study. She reminded them that according to WHO/CDC/FDA there is no other material which has ever been demonstrated to have the same immune boosting capacity when facing Ebola. In that letter, she reminds us that the stakes are very high since respiratory Ebola has a 90%+ mortality while contact Ebola has “only” 60-70% mortality. Dr. Laibow’s Open Letter is here:

        From that warning came the outreach of Sheik Massally to provide Nano Silver to his people.

        Concerned citizens are advised to take basic precautions against possible contamination. Avoid shaking hands with people who are visibly ill. Hand washing is another way to minimize physical contact but since the disease is, according to the US Army Military Research Institute for Infectious Diseases Special Report, airborne, that is only one of the possible ways to protect health. Some health professionals, especially those familiar with the power of natural modalities like Dr. Laibow, recommend the use of Nano Silver 10 PPM as part of a nutritional immune enhancement approach, supporting homeostasis, resulting in a vibrant immune system.

Laibow, M.D. co-founded the Natural Solutions Foundation in 2004 in an effort to dismantle the current conventional unsuccessful medical dogma and provide more clarity for those searching for proactive approaches to health.

          • Here are a couple more sites to look at to optimize preparations for this, in case corporate interests prevail. Selenium, it appears is also depleted by ebola: and cytokine storms appear to play a role in this too: and curcumin (turmeric) can relieve those.

            I stashed away a list of foods and herbs to eat and avoid if a cytokine storm is possible (I could go dig that out if you want). I recall elderberry and echinacea being contraindicated. They would be useful in preparation or recovery, once the crisis is over. Recently someone mentioned that colloidal silver can worsen a cytokine storm, so that caution must be noted. Pretty soon, though, we should be seeing information from people treating this thing in Africa. It is good that this is happening while information can be shared like this.


            • Thanks, Patricia. I think a lot of people may find it valuable. Please feel free to post the food/herb info you have as well. This would be highly appreciated. I might put together a separate post with this new info going forward.



    • This is a link on the Japanese anti-viral:
      I would not put as much hope on it as nano-silver and vitamin C megadoses, but it may be helpful.


  4. This is very important information regarding the treatment and cure of ebola symptoms. According to Jon Rappoport
    there is no definitive test to prove the existence of the ebola virus. You can check out

  5. Countermeasures to Avian Flu [with notes on ebola]

    This was on “the health gazette blog” site in 2009, but disappeared shortly afterward. I keep a hard copy of crucial information. The site no longer exists. I don’t know who the author was.
    I translated the content into Japanese without saving a copy of the original file.

    So translating back, The biologist Stephen Jones of Australia has researched this topic, and says the avian flu virus is unaffected by two cytokines (of note in cytokine storms): TNF-α and IL-6.

    For avian flu [i.e., any dangerous bug that induces cytokine storms], CHOOSE the following useful herbs and medicines:
    Garlic: Raw, chew well, or crush and eat within one hour. 2~3 cloves/day. Very effective anti-viral. After recovering sufficiently, can be reduced to below the smell level. [for ebola, may need to dilute to avoid irritation]
    Vitamin C: 1000 mg/hour for the first six hours, than can be reduced. Reduces production of TNF-α and IL-6. Blocks virus replication. [note: ebola is said to deplete vitamin C, so much larger amounts are used, up to 500 grams a day (that’s more than a pound), in a solution with some baking soda to reduce the acidity, and sipped constantly to bowel tolerance, i.e., until it provokes diarrhea. IV therapy is best, but if not possible, get some liposomal vitamin C as well; see: for making it at home]
    Green tea: As good an anti-viral as Tamiflu. Reduces TNF-α. Reduces neuraminidase.
    St. Johns Wort: Effective anti-viral. Reduces IL-6.Was effective against H5N1 avian flu in Vietnam.
    Vitamin E: Strengthens immunity. Reduces TNF-α. Optimal for people with weakened immunity, particularly elderly. Taking together with vitamin C boosts effect.
    Apples: Anti-viral. Juiced raw best. [note: too sugary in Japan; if all you have is sweet apples, eat only the skin]
    Resveretrol: Proven anti-viral. Controls neuraminidase. Stops viral replication in cells. Red wine, peanuts, mulberry leaves, raisins, knotweed.
    Scullcap: Herb tea. May control neuraminidase. Anti-viral.
    Cranberry juice: May be anti-viral [but avoid sweetened].
    Cats claw: Reduces production of TNF-α. Increases immunity. Increases white blood cell count significantly in therapy. No toxicity, but children and pregnant women must avoid.
    Curcumin: The yellow compound in turmeric. Reduces production of TNF-α. Research has shown it to be possibly effective against cytokine storms. Effect boosted by taking with black pepper. (It gets metabolized in the intestine and liver.) Pregnant and nursing women should avoid. Is sold in tablets with piperine, the active compound in black pepper. Take 500~4000 mg/day. [ has information on making effective preparations at home]
    Astragalus root: Boosts immunity.
    Tea tree oil steam inhalation: Reduces production of TNF-α. Pour boiling water into a bowl and add a couple of drops of tea tree oil. Lean over this with a towel covering your head and breath it for 5~10 minutes. Said, but not proven, to reduce congestion and fight the infection.

    AVOID the following foods and herbs (at least for avian flu):
    Elderberry juice: increases production of TNF-α and IL-6. Very effective against normal colds, but could provoke a fatal cytokine storm.
    Chlorella and spirulina: increase production of TNF-α.
    Honey: increases production of TNF-α and IL-6.
    Chocolate: increases production of TNF-α and IL-6.
    Echinacea: increases production of TNF-α and IL-6. Useful in cold remedies, but research has shown it increases risk of cytokine storm.
    Kimchee: increases production of TNF-α and IL-6.
    Milk products: increase phlegm production.
    Bananas: increase phlegm production.

    [see on optimizing vitamin D levels]
    [personal experience: I avoid all forms of sugar when ill, and reduce starches until I feel better, but I get lots of fats and omega-3 oil, and juice lots of raw vegetables. Chicken soup is great—use cabbage instead of noodles. I also try to get sunshine even if it is not strong enough to boost vitamin D. I attempt light exercise each day, but I stop if I start feeling worse. I avoid electropollution, which has also been said to boost cytokines and inflammation. For me, that means staying away from the computer until I am better.]



    I have purchased honeysuckle this week to combat flu viruses. This herb costs $6.99 for 1/2 lb, I purchased it in Chinatown, Vancouver, BC. It is also available on Amazon. The article talks about microRNA which implies the biological mechanism to suppress flu virus replication is either RNA Interference or Antisense.

    I usually do not get the flu so I do not know when I will get to personally test this natural remedy!
