An interesting statement, considering what we know about FAH:
"These are very expensive calculations," he added. "Also, running the analysis takes time. If we were to use just the resources at home, it would take several years."

Anything is possible if you happen to test it on folks who are cronically zinc deficient. "An apple a day..." or VItamins can improve your general health and so can Zinc if your body happens to be short of it. I have not heard that it has been shown to medically "effective" in large-scale testing.

Choroquinine was suggested as a cure and while it had been proven as Safe in a controlled enviroment, it was not shown to be Effective.

Medical science likes to approve things that are Safe and Effective.

Lack of proof doesn't prove it to be Ineffective, though, so I'll go with "maybe"
