Wrong. The high dose vitamin C is to kill the virus and stop the hemorrhagic episodes, poor Future Darwin Awardees.

NY Doctor Recently Back From West Africa Tests Positive For Ebola

harvey the nerd Responses: for New York etc (372 comments)

Before returning to US, medical personnel should have 1-2 days isolated rest and repeat PCR screening. Restricted social activities and monitoring for 21 days after last African contact.

1. The FDA is hindering rapid PCR test kits. Issue temporary permits, buy 10-20 provisional PCR kits for 5 airports and upgrade every 1-2 quarters. F--- the FDA.
2. Stage and slow the return of West African visitors to social exposures.
3. Flush anybody questionable with 2-5 days of IV vitamin C 80,000 mg tid, 50,000 iu vitamin D3 per day, selenium and zinc. These kill viruses.
4. Allow protection for unknowns, like some earlier contagious exposure before gross symptoms
5. Do better allowance in design for superspreader incidents.

Trans-Pacific Partnership May Endanger World Health, Newly Leaked Chapter Shows

harvey the nerd Re:freedoms f----d (132 comments)

My wife takes a pill in asia that is superior to anything in the US, $4 per day. This chemo pill is illegal in the US - its too nice and not 100% toxics (only ~30%). Literally there's a law about it, and I've been yelled at by the FDA about it. The closest, INFERIOR pill in the US has been running $9000 per month has more side effects and shorter life. If the US changes the "anti-nice" rule and legalizes this old generic drug, should US taxpayers owe PFE etc a billion $ per year? It is that simple.

Positive Ebola Test In Second Texas Health Worker

IV treatment IV vitamin C with sodium ascorbate is a powerful, less known antiviral treatment, stonewalled out of conventional medicine for ca 75 years http://seanet.com/~alexs/ascor... .... See also

Cathcart http://orthomolecular.org/libr...

or read Tom Levy's book, Curing the Incurable:Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins

The more severe the virus, higher and more frequent doses used. As support for nasty viral illnesses overseas that have no vaccine, we also take zinc, 50,000 iu of vitamin D3 for 1-2 weeks, lysine and 200-400 mcg selenium. With Ebola, the real question will be when the last chance for a given level of IV vitamin C treatment (gram C/kg wt) 2-3-4 times per day will work, and when it will be too late - too little.

I've already been in a 3rd world situation where people look like over made actors in a sci fi movie with lots and lots of big pustules...and IV vitamin C worked well from the first infusion crusting over in ~8 hours vs 8 more days, over it in several days, so don't yak at me about iffy imagination stuff. However, I believe ignorance and cupidity are mankind's norm.

NSA surveillience used by domestic LEOs function as writs of assistance, the traitorous general search warrants expressly forbidden by the Founders and a major cause of the American Revolution. No matter what title they have, some officials need to be tried then shot and/or hanged.
