BHT's ability to effectively treat lipid coated viruses which include: hepatatitis C and B, all the herpes viruuses and the AIDS virus has been being reported since 1975. A lot has been published about it since then in different scientific publications including the journal SCIENCE. This stuff works. I self treated for hepatitis C back in 1997 using daily doses of 200mg per day with water on an empty stomach. I went from being symptomatic [ sick with jaundice, yellowed eyes, darkened urine, stomach pain, trouble digesting food and such to being well and free of any viral load in my blood in about 4 weeks. Like I said, this BHT stuff works and fast. I was tested and retested to confirm I had hepatitis C and was told I definately had it. Before I was ever prescibed any medication I began taking BHT and like I said I was testing negative using the hepatitis C RNA test within 4 weeks and was well. I never had any side effects. I still take it to keep from catching any of the lipid coated viruses. What BHT can treat it will prevent infection of.
Also, BHT is the most powerful anti-oxident and free radical scavenger out there as far as I know. That is not just my opinion. Dr. Denham Harman, the father of the free radical concept of aging did extensive tests with mice being dosed with BHT and achieved an up to 50% increase in the average life span of mice dosed with BHT. Some of his critics said all he was doing was preventing the mice from getting CANCER and that accounted for the life span increase. Well, if that is ALL he was doing I would say THAT is quite important in and of itself....Oscar
