Research scientist BenHur Lee has found a way to disable many of the world's most dangerous viruses INCLUDING HIV while NOT having a toxic effect on cell cultures!!!!!! If this pans out then say goodbye to HIV, Nipah virus, ebola and any virus that uses a lipid coat. What his discovery, called a medical silver bullet, does is damage the lipid envelope on the viruses thus preventing them from entering cells to replicate. What the compound does is damage the lipid coating of cells and the virus. The cells can repair the damage but the viruses can't because they contain NO REPAIR MECHANISMS.
