    Great to see researchers turning to "natural" remedies, like vitamin C & coconut oil, to battle the coronavirus. However, I believe the results of these trials will be heavily influenced by the type of natural ingredients used. This trial proposes to use "virgin" coconut oil, meaning not refined. However, "organic" virgin coconut oil--less chemicals and pesticides used to grow the coconut--would probably yield better outcomes. The Phillippines--one of the world's largest producers of coconut oil--has been accused of genetically engineering (GE) coconuts for a decade. While GE is not GMO, it concerns me that the coconut oil being used to determine whether it can be effective against the coronavirus may be adulterated in some way. BigPharma loves it every time a natural remedy "proves" to be an ineffective treatment.
