Hmmm. I got this in my email:
From: Jonathan Byron
"Why black elderberry may make avian flu worse, why turmeric and scutellaria my be beneficial."
I haven't checked the science at all, but if what Jonathan says is valid then all our usual flu meds are dangerous, when it's avian flu.
One thing which made me go "hmmm" was that "Nitric Oxide is produced".
If I remember my cell physiology correctly (I might not) then nitric oxide is produced all the time. Constantly. Without pause. Sure, it disappears in far less than a second, but still, it's one of the cornerstones of cell biology.
Dunno if I remember things right, though.
Less alarmist information: Bird flu
