    Does anyone have any experience with BHT as an antiviral? I have been taking it for a couple weeks now and have been experiencing some headaches but I am not able to say much else about it.

    I have read some anecdotal reports of people recovering from hep C infection and also someone who said they had a "Lazarus like resurrection" from the CFS symptoms for several months following 2100 mg a day treatment with the substance

    it depends on whether the virus u want it to work on is lipid coated or not. I think hpv does not have a lipid coat but the herpesviruses do. So it shud only be able to work in the latter not the former.

    Delano Report has some good articles on it and guidelines.
