A review of this week’s list of research into current treatments for so-called HIV infection shows how patients seeking care in their doctor’s office can end up being on a long list of pharmaceutical drugs, mostly to treat the effects of ARVs (antiretroviral drugs). There is a push to get more and more people on […more]
Keep reading to find out why I just could not resist the headline. But first, there is a little discussion about AIDS vaccine research I need to get out of the way. I did a double take when I saw this report promising “further progress” in the search for an AIDS vaccine. Don’t worry, I […more]
I have probably spent at least ten thousand hours online the last ten years or so and I am still stumbling onto new blogs and websites that deal with HIV and AIDS issues from various perspectives, so I’m pretty familiar with the most common inconsistencies, aka “mysteries”, of the HIV=AIDS hypothesis. Still, I was taken […more]
The LOTTI study, based in Italy, found that patients taking highly active anti-retroviral treatment (HAART) for HIV/AIDS who took a “vacation” from drug treatment fared as well as those who remained on their drugs continuously.
This study offers a desperately needed offer of hope for those in treatment who cannot tolerate the AIDS drugs’ toxicity, or who want to avoid know side effects such as disfigurement and organ failure.
It is not just about saving lives or finding a cure. It’s very much about making money, and AIDS treatments have long been considered a global marketing opportunity. Mainstream AIDS proponents hate to have this issue brought up and would like to pretend that no one is getting rich from the current test-everyone-and-give-them-drugs public health […more]
After writing yesterday’s post, I came across this article in the New York Review of Books, written by Marcia Angell, former editor of no less than the New England Journal of Medicine, currently Senior Lecturer in the Department of Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School. In this must read, entitled “Drug Companies & Doctors: A […more]

“HIV-disease” (or “AIDS” or “HIV-positive” or “HIV/AIDS”, or whatever they start calling it next month) is toxic, harmful and dangerously unsustainable in the long run. ARVs (Anti-Retrovirals) are even starting to be used illicitly for their “hallucinogenic and relaxing effect” in some quarters of the world.
Likewise, the AIDS mainstream is certainly less than monolithic in their views. There is a lack of agreement among them about how HIV causes immune suppression, or even how HIV came into existence for that matter. One thing they all do seem to agree on is how essential it is that every Poz person take drugs to extend their life. Virtually every website devoted to “HIV/AIDS” (The Body, AIDSMeds, AEGiS, to name just a few) is replete with articles, messages and advertising promoting “compliance”, as well as tips, blogs and discussion groups to address the inevitable “side effects”, which should more accurately be referred to as “direct effects”.
I once belonged to that AIDS mainstream
