      Come on you know you're supposed to label these things with snark label!

      There's a gang of us here who have been doing nightly body counts starting back from 40 and we up over 140 now. I mean like five at a time.

      Lime and coconut you mean like together in that song?  Ssheeeshshhh. You guys! !!!!

        I added "snark" and "snarky poll" to the tags.  No further snarkolation is required.

        What's up with the spell checker now?

        MCFAs are small, so if virii or bacteria use them in a cell wall or coating, there are holes in it.

        (Like a half-size brick in a wall, MCFAs are smaller than most lipids)

        That said, if ebola virii are too small, there won't be many holes in the lipid coat.  

        Too few holes and the virus remains "operational" but with enough holes they get disrupted, key molecules move in or out through the holes and they can't reproduce.

        I suspect ebola is too small, there won't be enough holes and the virii will not be disrupted enough.

        The antiviral action attributed to monolaurin is that of solubilizing the lipids and phospholipids in the envelope of the virus causing the disintegration of the virus envelope.

        There are many other sites...

        What viruses does monolaurin destroy?

        Monolaurin destroys lipid-coated viruses:
        Cytomegalovirus (CMV)
        Herpes simplex-1 (HSV-1)
        Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
        Influenza
        Measles virus
        Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV)
        Visna virus

    •  Ok Sharkmeister I get now that you are snarking us (4+ / 0-)

      and I have a pretty "stretchy" sense of humor. But, you should put a snark label in you title.

      We have several Kossacks here who have family in Conakry, a city of 2 million in Guinea.  They have 9 cases in the capital city and over a hundred in the oountry and our Kossacks her are praying every night that there loved ones do not get afflicted.

      My son's girlfriend sister is in Mali with MSF right now taking care of the afflicted.

      Superstition and fear are running rampant. 4 days ago villagers in the middle of Guinea rioted and attacked MSF (we translate as Doctors without Borders) because they thought the Doctors had brought Ebola to the Village.

      This is the Zaire strain which has a mortality rate of 90% and liquifies your blood vessels from the inside out.

      In Zaire which used to be called Congo, they have one of he highest incidences of the HIV virus, Partially, due to trucker drivers along main routes who heavily use prostitutes.

      The current fad superstition is that one can cure HIV by having sex with a virgin, so 12 year girls are auctioned off to infected truck drivers.

      Just saying without a (Snark Tag in you tittle there is no way for someone like me, or the Kossacks who have loved one in Conakry, or who might even be infected and looking here for hope having heard of our group hear) to know if you are serious are not.

      •  Poll is snark -- other stuff, serious (1+ / 0-)
        Recommended by:

        There are sites declaring the distribution of ebola dtection hardware, that's serious.  

        Coconut oil does disrupt lipid coated bacteria and viruses, that's real, known and studied.

        Poll is humor, scream and run is NOT an effective coping method.
