    http://www.coconut-connections.com/hivandaids.htm In a July 1997 newsletter entitled "Keep Hope
    Alive" an interview with Chris Dafoe was recorded. Chris Dafoe of Cloverdale, IN who, based on his
    lab numbers, thought the end was near in September, 1996. His HIV viral load was over 600,000, CD4
    count was 10 and CD8 at 300. He prepaid his funeral and decided to take his last vacation in the
    jungles of South America with an Indian tribe in the Republic of Surinam. Around October 14, 1996,
    he began eating daily a dish of cooked coconut which was prepared by the local Indians. By Dec.
    27th, 1996, a mere 2 and 1/2 months later, his viral load was at non-detectable levels and he had
    gained 32 lbs and was feeling great. He had some other people he knew with HIV try using coconuts in
    their diet, and they experienced the same results. Anth
