    Could ultraviolet light kill retroviruses in the blood of a live human? Has anyone done UV light therapy for their ME/CFS and XMRV? If so, can you tell us how it went? Here is a video on this concept.

    No. First of all what you are doing is applying UV light directly to a portion of the blood and damaging it. You could increase the risk of cancer. You also initiate a repair response when you put that blood back into the body. That is how it works. You certainly do NOT kill viruses directly. Secondly, if it were retroviruses, they integrate into DNA in many tissues and cells. So that would totally not work.

    Take therapies done by so-called "quacks", make a giant machine that looks official that does the same thing in an automated fashion, get the device approved by the FDA, profit!

    The machine is big enough and looks westernized enough that I actually think this therapy may get approved. If I had money, perhaps I would invest in it.

    rolls eyes.
    It may help with secondary infections that are in the blood.
    I wouldn't irradiate *my* blood.

    Is that the same catseye who was "cured" by Dr. Farr's gut protocol?
