What Happened to Israeli Scientists' Cure?
May 17, 2012

Hi Doc, I am not sure which doctor I should ask this question but I hope you can share your opinion. I came across a site ( stating that a potential cure was found by Israeli scientists back in 2010 and they just needed to do more tests with it. I am wondering what happened to it? Would be great if you can share :)


Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

Wow, that was really shoddy reporting. No citation of the article, name of compound or researchers. Indeed, all the author did was to quote a Chinese news agency.

So, I'm not sure what the article refers to; but there are several lines of research working on eradication and cure.

Be well, BY
