Tony Lance I’ve gotten to know Tony Lance personally the last few months. The more we visit, the more things we seem to discover we share in common. Both of us are gay men who came out just before, or in the very earliest years of the Gay Plague. We are both “poz” and […more]
courtesy of freefoto.com AIDS researchers continue to stretch the limits in finding excuses to spend some of the billions of dollars worth of funding being made available to them. Lately, the anti-smoking forces have been rallying to compete for a piece of the HIV research pie. This morning’s news brought this “study” about the lung […more]
Have you ever wondered how I can stand being needled sometimes? Or perhaps you think I have a prickly personality? Need more proof that I have thick skin? This is my third acupuncture treatment for Bell’s palsy. I’m an old hand at acupuncture and have utilized it for more than 10 years now. An acupuncture […more]
I developed Bell’s palsy (BP) yesterday, a couple of days after striking the left side of my head rather severely on the sharp, hard edge of my car door.

Carl Stryg wrote just such an essay recently, published at The Truth Barrier, a website founded by journalist Celia Farber. From the first paragraph, Stryg […more]
What to do when research doesn’t provide the desired results? Conduct another study and change the parameters, of course. According to the AIDS mantra, penetrative sex without latex is the highest risk behavior for transmission of the HI virus. Yet, a recent study from the University of Florida–a state with a greater than usual interest […more]
Some folks who have read my story about quitting AIDS drugs and nearly two dozen other prescription drugs seem to think I attribute my improved health to that choice alone. It isn’t that simple. There is no doubt in my mind that taking so many prescription drugs, even under the care of physicians, was […more]
For evidence that overuse of antibiotics and other drugs is causing more health problems than they cure, one need look no further than Norway.~ Antibiotics and MRSA That country embarked on a campaign 25 years ago to eradicate MRSA (antibiotic resistant staph infection) which has proven remarkably successful. A key component of that campaign: cutting […more]
