HIV-Aids: A Tragic Error

Recently, a friend from the UK sent a copy of an article published in the Observer, titled: "UK firm tried HIV drug on orphans" which details experiments with toxic AIDS drugs on orphans in New York, involving the British drug giant GlaxoSmithKline. Reading the article I forwarded to some people, a medical doctor friend has the following to say:

"I see nothing wrong with this. At least the children received treatment for free."

That's where we differ, I replied. To me, AIDS treatment (AZT) is highly toxic and potentially will kill the patient. Considering the high rate of false positives of the AIDS test, that is something to be avoided. My friend's reply to that was that

"there are several AIDS tests, the initial screening test may have a low false positive rate, but not the others - one can count the number of AIDS virus particles in the blood, etc."

Knowing that this is not the case, I tried once more, saying no Aids test is able to count virus particles in the blood. Both Elisa and Western blot are non-specific and react to (stressed) protein fractions. None of the tests counts virus particles in the blood. In fact, the virus itself is a construct that escapes logic. It is not present in many so-called HIV positive individuals, even in people with full blown Aids symptomology, and it has not been shown scientifically to cause anything. If you start looking into the critical literature you'll get a great surprise. Not content with my reply, my doctor friend asked for help from a pharmacist, editor of several pharmacists' publications and specific drug databases. The question

"Is Josef right about distrusting AIDS tests and viral counts?"

elicited the following answer:
"I think this is an extreme position, but one that some folks around the world have taken. I think the president of some African nation took this position and his people decided not to protect against HIV and it resulted in thousands or millions more HIV positive individuals. We'll get you an answer..."

After some days, my friend wrote, saying "Here is a reply worth noting, to try to put the AIDS test question in its proper perspective. It comes from the objective source that does not make money on any drugs." The "expert", Jim Avedikian, owner of what his website describes as "the Largest and Oldest HIV Specialty Pharmacy in the San Gabriel Valley", had this to say:

"I can't believe that this myth is still floating around! If 4 out of 5 AIDS tests were false positives, you would be hearing a lot more about it in the media. Although it may be technically true that HIV does not kill you directly, the decimated immune system it leaves behind subjects you to dozens of opportunitic infections which will kill you. Please do not reprint or spread these rumors in your publications ... it will do a lot more harm than good!"

Less than convinced, I replied once more, saying "the response of Jim Avedikian is rather disappointing. He avoids the scientific issue of the validity of Aids tests. You would be hearing a lot more about it in the media is not really an argument that allays any scientific concern." My friend, after this, bowed out of the conversation with an excuse, but it just so happens that in another online conversation, I came across the answer to the question. Neville Hodgkinson, former medical correspondent of the London Sunday Times, has outlined the history of our medical response to the AIDS problem in a highly interesting article, meticulously documenting what he says.

After this eye opener, the ball is back in the court of the scientists who have been telling us to take the drugs and shut up. Let them respond, if they can...

AIDS: Scientific or Viral Catastrophe?

by Neville Hodgkinson

www.altheal.org

Abstract - Despite more than $100 billion spent on AIDS by US taxpayers alone, scientists have not been able to ascertain how HIV causes the AIDS syndrome. Predictions about the course of the epidemic have proved inaccurate. While millions are said to be infected and dying in Africa, AIDS deaths have fallen in Europe and the USA and now total fewer than 250 a year in the UK, which has a population of nearly 60 million. Claims that cocktails of antiviral drugs are responsible for a decline in Western AIDS are unsupported by clear evidence. On the contrary, the US Government has reversed a policy of "hit hard, hit early" in HIV-positive people, citing "unexpected toxicities" from the drugs. The HIV theory of AIDS causation has fulfilled certain social and public health needs, but the scientific community has not acknowledged or addressed serious flaws in AIDS theory and medical practice, in particular a failure to validate "HIV" diagnostic tests against isolation of virus. Genetic and chemical signals produced by disordered immune cells may have been misinterpreted as evidence of the presence of a lethal virus. There is vast over-diagnosis of AIDS and "HIV disease" in Africa and other countries where malnutrition and grossly impoverished living circumstances, with associated infections, are the real killers. The harmful consequences of these mistakes and omissions are increasing now that the World Health Organisation and UNAIDS, convinced of an African pandemic, are urging finance ministers of African countries to devote more domestic funds to HIV/AIDS activities. On the other hand, if debt relief and other emergency aid for which UNAIDS is also campaigning are used appropriately, enormous relief of human suffering will be possible. A reasoned response from the scientific community to the full range of evidence challenging the HIV theory is overdue.

Introduction

An African girl stands beneath a tall, makeshift wooden cross planted in a freshly dug grave. Her sad face, eyes accusingly upturned, dominates the black-and-white cover of a special issue of the British Medical Journal, "Global Voices on the AIDS Catastrophe".[1] Inside, we read that without access to retroviral drugs, "most of the 40 million people currently living with HIV will die"; that more than 600,000 infants are infected with HIV from their mothers every year; that the epidemic will kill 55 million...

A recently released book:

The Origin, Persistence and Failings of HIV/AIDS Theory

Bauer_HIVAIDS.jpg

Thanks to enormous funding for educational programs, the whole world "knows" that HIV causes AIDS. But is what we know compatible with the facts? This book challenges the conventional wisdom on this issue. Collating and analyzing, for the first time, the results of more than two decades of HIV testing, it reveals that the common assumptions about HIV and AIDS are incompatible with the published data. Among the many topics explored are the failings of HIV testing, statistical evidence that HIV is neither sexually transmitted nor increasingly prevalent, and problems caused by the differing diagnostic criteria for AIDS around the world.

But how could everyone have been wrong for so long? This vital question, unaddressed in previous works questioning the HIV - AIDS connection, is central to this book. The author considers comparable missteps of modern science, and discusses how funding influences discovery in today's scientific circles.

Henry H. Bauer is Professor Emeritus of Chemistry & Science Studies and Dean Emeritus of Arts & Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University (Virginia Tech). He lives in Blacksburg, Virginia.
The book is available from McFarland and Amazon

DEATH RUSH: Poppers & AIDS
Death Rush is John Lauritson's 64-page book published by Pagan Press in 1986. Its purpose was to warn gay men about the dangers of the nitrite inhalants or alkyl nitrites (amyl nitrite, butyl nitrite, isobutyl nitrite, etc). Although Death Rush: Poppers & AIDS has been out-of-print for many years now, the medical information is still valid. The toxicities of these drugs have not changed. The nitrite inhalants are still powerfully mutagenic; they still cause anemia; they are still immunosuppresive.

"I picked out the following lines:

The harmful consequences of these mistakes and omissions are increasing now that the World Health Organisation and UNAIDS, convinced of an African pandemic, are urging finance ministers of African countries to devote more domestic funds to HIV/AIDS activities. On the other hand, if debt relief and other emergency aid for which UNAIDS is also campaigning are used appropriately, enormous relief of human suffering will be possible.

This is 100% congruent with the financial world order imposed by the US on the 3rd World countries. See Michael Hudson’s book. The World Bank and IMF impose Malthusian policies to reduce the 3rd World’s population by famine and disease, while at the same time draining what’s left of their their financial resources and handing over their infrastructure to the Bechtel’s of this planet. Sounds like a conspiracy ? It’s “Realpolitik?? in it’s most realistic form."

Another comment received today:

I selected some more leads in Neville Hodgkinson’s article:

In the USA alone, where taxpayers have spent more than $100 billion on HIV/AIDS research, treatment, and other programs over the past two decades[2], the Bush administration budgeted $780million in 2002 to help foreign nations grapple with the disease. To the surprise of the New York Times, both Republicans and Democrats pressed for more. "With Convert's Zeal, Congress Awakens to AIDS" was the headline on a Times report that the eventual US contribution to the global fight would probably approach $1.3 billion. The recently-formed Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria quickly obtained pledges of more than $2 billion, with $700 million available for immediate disbursement (though the BMJ argued that these figures are still hugely disproportionate to what is needed). The World Bank, which has earmarked more than $2 billion for HIV/AIDS since 1986, including loans, is also intensifying its efforts.

…………

UNAIDS, which brings together seven United Nations agencies, including WHO, in a joint programme on AIDS, is doing work with huge potential for helping Africa by campaigning for debt relief and other forms of emergency aid. But it risks destroying the value of its efforts by tying them exclusively to the HIV/AIDS paradigm, increasingly questioned within Africa itself. By urging African finance ministers to devote more domestic funds to AIDS activities, "notwithstanding the weak fiscal situations in many of the worst affected countries in Africa",[97] it may exacerbate the real problems, which as South Africa's Thabo Mbeki has indicated are mostly related to poverty.

Now, Sepp, here it comes !!!:

UNAIDS has actually spelled out that it wants resources programmed for welfare, education, rural development and other health purposes to be redirected into HIV/AIDS care and prevention.
In the South African context, this would be particularly disastrous. Dr Sam Mhlongo, professor of primary health care and family medicine and chief family practitioner at the Medical University of Southern Africa, Pretoria, a member of Mbeki's Advisory Panel on AIDS, points out that 50 years of apartheid have left half the population of South Africa with no access to sanitation and clean drinking water. Sub-standard housing, shacks and overcrowding favour the risk of massive infection and re-infection with tuberculosis (added to AIDS-defining criteria in 1993). Starving and malnourished children are particularly susceptible to respiratory and gastro-intestinal infections and septicaemia. "Long before Luc Montagnier's HIV/AIDS 'discovery', Professor John Reid of the Durban Medical School noted that 50% of black children in rural areas of South Africa died before the age of five," Mhlongo writes.[98] "The commonest causes of death amongst these black infants were recorded as bronchopneumonia, dehydration and diarrhoea."

........ What Mhlongo sees, in eastern and southern Africa, is ( Sepp, here it comes again!!!: ) chronic protein deficiency, a breakdown in civilian services, rising incidence of TB and malaria, declining prices for agricultural output, high inflation and unemployment, displacement by civil violence, and cutbacks in government services due to economic adjustments mandated by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. "There is no need to conjecture the mysterious antics of some retrovirus from the rainforest that supposedly jumped from monkeys to humans."

In Michael Hudson’s terminology, the already deeply impoverished 3rd World countries are suppressed even further in support of the USA’s geo-dominance strategies. What is booked as “aid?? is in fact a budget that is brought home in the form of interest on loans through the World Bank and IMF (under control of the US Government), in the form of competitive advantage for the same US Government in practically all vital areas: agriculture, industry, politics and military.

And what’s truly sickening. The so called AIDS epidemic is simply a cover-up of the disasters imposed on the 3rd World by the U.S. controlled World Bank and IMF. The U.S. Government, the World Bank and the IMF wash their hands in innocence by blaming a virus noone has ever isolated for the mess they caused.

A comment received by e-mail contained the following information, which I believe is relevant to this article.

Aids 'Tests'

Testing For 'HIV'

Over the years of the HIV/AIDS theory, different types of test have been used to try to detect such a virus in patients. These have included (1) antibody tests, which look for a reaction in a person's blood between their natural antibodies and synthetic proteins said to belong to HIV, and (2) Polymerase Chain Reaction - PCR - or 'viral load' genetic tests, which purport to use part of the virus' genetic code to detect its presence.

All these tests are indirect, or surrogate. They do not claim to detect any whole virus. Rather, they use markers to infer whether a virus might be present. Unfortunately for the accuracy of these tests, these same markers can be found in a variety of non-HIV situations. No HIV test of any kind has ever been validated against the one measure that is not indirect - the gold standard: physical virus isolation. This is because isolation of HIV by the previously conventional standards of viral isolation has never been achieved, despite numerous attempts.

Of the antibody tests for HIV, there are two main types - called ELISA, and Western Blot. Neither was designed especially for HIV, but are examples of laboratory methodologies used in many investigations. Around the world many companies market their versions of the ELISA and Western Blot antibody tests for HIV.

However, the uncertain, unvalidated nature of these tests is reflected in the product literature supplied by their manufacturers. A typical example for the ELISA reads:

"At present there is no recognised standard for establishing the presence or absence of antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 in human blood." - Axsym System, Abbott Laboratories

A typical example for the Western Blot reads:

"Do not use this kit as the sole basis of diagnosis of HIV-1 infection." - Epitope, Organon Teknika


The 'Viral Load' / PCR Test

Polymerase Chain Reaction - PCR - or the 'viral load' test, purports to detect, and quantify, blood-borne HIV in patients. However, the genetic fragments it amplifies have never been proved to originate in HIV, or in any virus. The accuracy of PCR viral load is estimated by leading doctors at plus or minus 300% - i.e. a reading of 90,000 could be 30,000 or 270,000!

The PCR was not invented for HIV. Its Nobel Prizewinning inventor, Dr Kary Mullis, calls the use of PCR in AIDS medicine, "a tragedy in the practice of Western medicine".

The uncertain unvalidated nature of the PCR for HIV is reflected in the product literature supplied by manufacturers. A typical example reads:

"The Amplicor HIV-1 Monitor test is not intended to be used as a screening test for HIV or as a diagnostic test to confirm the presence of HIV infection." - Roche, Amplicor


T-cells

Since the beginning of the HIV/AIDS theory, it has been suggested that a virus kills a certain type of cell of the immune system - called T-cells, or CD4 cells. T refers to the maturing of these cells in the gland of the Thymus, after their birth in the bone marrow. CD4 is short for Cluster Differentiation 4, referring to a method by which scientists group subsets of these cells according to protein markers on their surface.

In fact there has never been any proof that an HIV kills these cells, or indeed that even when they seem in low numbers in a person's blood, cells have not instead migrated out of the blood to bone marrow and elsewhere. Despite common assumptions, even by doctors, CD4/T-cell counting remains a poor predictor of wellness and illness. Since the Berlin World AIDS Conference of 1992 considerably less scientific importance has been attached to T-cell counting. T-cell counts are naturally variable, within an individual over time, between individuals, and between communities. The technology for counting T-cells is accurate only to approximately plus or minus 100 cells. The cells sampled for counting are taken from a person's peripheral blood, where it is widely accepted, less than 10% of a healthy person's T-cells will ever be found.

The ICC Investigation Continues

Hospital PR firm gives insufficient response to ICC Investigation

By Liam Scheff, July, 2004

In January, 2004, I published "The House That AIDS Built". The story dealt with medical abuse at Incarnation Children's Center (ICC), a home for HIV positive children in New York City. The story exposed the practices of forced-drugging, drug trials without informed consent, and profound medical abuse. The story was picked up by several international papers, including the New York Post and the UK Guardian, and was reprinted throughout the world on the world wide web.

German journalist Torsten Engelbrecht read the story and formulated a series of questions for Columbia Presbyterian, the hospital which presides over ICC. He was answered by a PR firm. The answers were dishonest and unsatisfactory. What follows is a response to and a dissection of their answers using NIH documents, clinical trials, interview material, Medline articles and Department of Health statistics. Given the material provided here, it is clear that the practice of surgical forced-drugging of HIV positive children with toxic compounds is ongoing, in violation of the rights of wards of the state, and must be addressed immediately.

*****
The above document offers a thorough response to Columbia University Medical Center's PR response to the ICC investigation. It collects a great deal of information, gathered over the last year while I investigated ICC and the state of NIH-sponsored, Pediatric AIDS clinical trials.

- Of particular note is the currently-sanctioned practice of invasive stomach (G-Tube) surgery in children and infants, for the purpose of maintaining Adherence to AIDS drugs. This practice is sanctified by "The Body," "PubMed," and by the medical director of Incarnation Children's Center.

These doctors, peer-reviewed articles and AIDS information websites are promoting invasive surgery for AIDS drug-enforcement in infants younger than 3-months old...

- What is the scientific basis of these recommendations?
- What is the ethical limit to the insistence that a person take a drug?
- If invasive surgery in infants, for the purpose of feeding highly-toxic drugs with no known curative value is not a violation of human rights, then what is?

Also of interest is NYC's Dept. of Health and Statistics record of Pediatric AIDS deaths over the entire AIDS period (which they backdate to 1976) versus the number of Pediatric HIV deaths for the same period.

60% mortality (40% survival) rate in the AIDS (highly drugged) group -versus- 4% mortality (96% survival) rate for the HIV (no AIDS - less drugged or not drugged) group.

I hope this will be a useful resource for you.

Please also note significant updates and revisions in "The House That AIDS Built" (2nd half) that make it more focused, readable and effective:

Here is a letter published in the Canadian Medical Post:


HIV: Could treatments be on the wrong track?

Although we live in an unparalleled age of communication, particularly in the field of medical science, I continue to be amazed at how blinkered the average physician is to the field of nutritional and alternative medicine.

I was quite interested in the general response to my letter, "Why not adopt AIDS patients?" (the Medical Post, June 1), dealing with, among other issues, how cheaply AIDS patients could be treated in many developing countries. Among the replies was a brief nod to the work of Dr. Harold Foster PhD; (www.hdfoster.com), raising a concept that was interesting but
seemed somewhat in left field.

Serendipitously, a study by Dr. Wafaie Fawzi, "A randomized trial of multiple vitamin supplements and HIV disease progression and mortality" in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine (July 1) made me rethink Dr. Foster's concept.

Malnutrition is endemic in sub-Saharan Africa and decreases resistance to AIDS, which in turn severely reduces the body's ability to combat any infection. The wasting of AIDS has given rise to the colloquial term "slim disease." The current working hypothesis is that AIDS is associated with wasting as in any chronic illness; however, is there a more specific reason?

This, I feel, is where Dr. Foster's concept should be looked at. In an abstract, the concept states that HIV-1's genome includes a gene that is identical to that found in humans that encodes for glutathione peroxidase. This means HIV diverts the key ingredients that make glutathione peroxidase from human nutrition. These key ingredients are selenium, cysteine, glutamine and tryptophan. This means that over a number of years, a shorter period if one is already suffering from malnutrition, simultaneous nutritional deficient diseases appear with AIDS, or slim disease.

Dr. Foster has put this concept to open study in hospices in South Africa, Kenya, Botswana and Zambia with startling recovery in general health; not HIV-free, but able to look after themselves and work in a short period of time. Quoting from his work, "The effects are rather like giving insulin to a diabetic."

What is needed is a double-blind study. If we ignore this possibility without at least medical testing, we deserve to be crucified by physicians of the future for having not investigated the greatest viral genocide in the history of our planet. - Dr. Alan Russell, Brampton, Ont.

The following is a reply to a comment posted on another article - South Africa: Traditional Medicine to Fight AIDS, Poverty, copied here because of its relevance.


Dear Mabasa Sasa,

thank you very much for your comment. I am happy that my site is providing a window into a world that, as you say, is (still) in a shadowy backwater when it comes to academic debate and policy making at a national and international level. My hope is, that by stimulating that debate - and here help from journalists such as yourself would be very welcome - the issue will indeed emerge into public consciousness and scientific debate will ensure we progress from highly toxic remedies to actual prevention and real cures.

Perhaps it would be best for you to link up with some of the people who are discussing the scientific aspects of AIDS and who, for now, are frozen out of the policy making debate.

I am copying this response to some of these people in the hopes that you may get in direct contact with them, and see what they have to say. My role in this can only be to stimulate. Others are dedicating much more time to the issue and may be able to supply you with more "ammunition" in this matter.

AIDS, NON-HIV AIDS AND “PRESCRIPTION AIDS”

AS a physical anthropologist who has a special interest in commercial science and new product development, I normally scan research papers and reports. I enjoy putting together seemingly unrelated facts and information and sometimes that creates a new picture and may make new sense or new meaning with potential prospects for paradigm shifts or new products.

This time, the accumulating literature on non-HIV AIDS caught my attention. HIV was announced to be the "probable cause" of AIDS by Robert Gallo at a government press conference. It was popularized as the cause of AIDS because HIV is found in virtually all AIDS patients (90%); HIV has been identified inside and on the surface of T4 cells of HIV positive and AIDS patients using electron microscopy; HIV-DNA can be found in as many as 1 of 10 blood lymphocytes of persons with AIDS; Antibodies against the virus, viral antigens and HIV-RNA have been found in HIV positive and AIDS patients; The virus has been found in HIV positive and AIDS patients, but not in healthy, low-behavioral risk individuals; The virus has been found both in low-risk and high-risk hemophiliacs.

Going through all the literature thus far has led me to conclude that among other things, that since 1984 no scientist has been able to explain how the HIV virus causes AIDS which they have done so well as in the case of, say the Salmonella microbe and the existence of the ICL group or non-HIV AIDS cases, the HIV virus is not the causative agent of AIDS. There are thousands of infected people who show no sign of AIDS. If it is pathenogenic, why does it not produce the same disease in all patients? It has not conclusively proven to be an immunosuppressant. That is the key.

On the other hand, the automobile population exploded after 1970 which coincided with the significantly increasing use of sexual lubricants which have very toxic carcinogenic and immunosuppresive agents including benzene or its derivatives and talc plus silicon lubrication in condoms. Ten to fourteen years later the earliest cases of AIDS were reported and the "incubation" period also coincides with the time frame after which AIDS is said to manifest in people infected with the HIV virus. Benzene is added to gasoline, shellac removers, varnishes, cement, paints, glue, rubber and the post 70s era coincides with a property boom and economic development in many areas and in several countries.

There was a phenomenal increase of atmospheric pollution as well which corresponds with the increase in the automobile population after 1970. The culprits are more likely to be benzene and its derivatives. The causative factors are these chemicals which act as immunosuppressants and the attendant free-radical damage to the auto-immune system. That is exactly what needs testing and verification.

The Toxic Oil Syndrome in Spain in 1981 was first suspected to have a viral cause because of immune suppression among thousands of people, many of whom were relatives but the culprit turned out to be benzene which contaminated olive oil!

Bacterial strains used to produce the amino-acid tryptophan, if they become tainted and instead produce toxins related to the benzene ring and causes benzene poisoning with symptoms of "AIDS" as in the case of Haitians who were singled out by the CDC as an "AIDS risk group".

Chronic benzene poisoning results in great individual variation in signs and symptoms and includes lymphomas, myeloid leukemia, Hodgkin's disease etc., much like in AIDS and mutagenesis due to severe free-radical damage. The cumulative effect of benzene and its derivatives takes a few to several years to develop and manifest, in most cases up to 10-12 years.

Free-radical damage reactions in cells produce toxic chemicals, destroy enzymes and kill cells. They also start chain reactions that are harmful to health and long term exposure to free-radicals can lead to chronic illness, chronic fatigue, cancers or early symptoms of aging. Benzene "burns out" the endocrine system and speeds up the aging process 100 fold, so in some AIDS cases the patients. The early cases of AIDS left a lasting impression of people who "died horrible deaths and looked like shriveled old men" due to immune system destruction caused by anaemia and leukocytopenia.

Free-radical reactions are vicious reactions. They produce other highly secondary products such as alkanes, alcohols, acids and carbonyls which react with proteins, amino-acids, amines and DNA leading to mutagenesis, cancers and promote aging. Some tumours have been shown by gas chromatography studies to exude minute amounts of formaldehyde, alkanes and benzene derivatives not found in healthy tissues and that is probably why young-adult dogs with no brain impairments can sniff out cancerous tumours in human beings. So, another postulate is that chronic benzene poisoning produces cancer cells that in turn produces benzine derivatives that continue the free-radical chain reactions in the body.

Chronic intravenous drug abuse results in the same “AIDS defining illness”. Cocaine, heroin and crystal methamphetamine are manufactured using coal tar derivatives like kerosene which has high benzene content. Illicit drugs are routinely prepared with acetone which affects carbohydrate metabolism, muscle weakness, kidney damage, vomiting etc. Such drugs have been implicated in immune suppression.

Oestrogen helps to inhibit and protect the body from benzene, as reported, and its free-radical damage simply because it is a very powerful anti-oxidant which means that the post-menopausal age group is at a much higher risk.

More research is needed to further prove what happens to toxic chemicals when they enter the body through the skin or ingestion or through rectal absorption, the later being 8 times more effective in putting toxic lubricants into the bloodstream and confirm their free-radical activity in the cells and how they generate more free-radicals.

Excessive mitochondrial damage causes weakness and fatigue. Both of these symptoms are found in people with HIV infection and associated with the use of anti-HIV drugs such as AZT. One group of researchers found evidence of increased free radical damage in people with HIV and in laboratory mice treated with AZT. They reported that high doses of vitamin E and vitamin C protected mouse muscle from such damage. We know that vitamins E and C are powerful anti-oxidants.

Mitochondrial disorders can be acquired while under drug treatment. AZT treatment in AIDS patients has been shown to cause mDNA depletion which in turn causes myopathic changes that are reversible upon termination of treatment. Chemotherapy agents such as fosfamide have been reported to decrease mitochondrial function. For mitochondria to reproduce themselves, a specific enzyme called gamma-DNA-polymerase or “pol-gamma” is required. Many medications have been found to interrupt pol gamma. Studies suggest that virtually all the nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NARTIs) including AZT interrupt pol gamma to some extent. One study has already demonstrated that people given AZT had significant depletion of mitochondrial DNA in muscle tissue. So, free radical damage to mitochondria, whether by benzene and its derivatives or AZT or other toxic chemicals can cause the “chronic fatigue” and weight loss symptoms diagnosed in early AIDS patients.

Mitochondrial damage can possibly be a primary cause for low platelet count (thrombocytopenia), anaemia and low neutophil count, regardless of HIV serostatus.

A study on cardiovascular toxicology reports “AZT treatment increases superoxide (free radical) production” and “the effects of AZT on endothelium-dependent relaxation are eliminated by pretreatment with a free radical scavenger” (anti-oxidant).

There is evidence of alcoholic toxicity being mediated via the generation of free radical species. Ethanol also induces free radical formation that damages mitochondria and alters metabolism in mitochondria. The consumption of alcohol results in the formation of two very toxic compounds; acetaldehyde and malondialhyde which generate massive amounts of free radicals throughout the body. This type of free radical damage is both to the cell wall and the mitochondria.

The HIV virus is able to pass through the cell wall that is damaged by free radicals and it being a retro-virus takes control of the genetic material. This explains why alcoholics as a group are an HIV risk group and explains why the symptoms in alcoholics may be different from other groups. So, an alcoholic could get AIDS from free radical damage or HIV-AIDS.

Again anti-oxidants play a vital role. If a proper combination of anti-oxidants is taken shortly before alcohol consumption the cellular damage caused by alcohol generated free radicals may be prevented. There is data to suggest that the administration of vitamin C (an anti-oxidant) may be useful in limiting those aspects of alcohol toxicity mediated by circulating acetaldehyde. Also administration of large amounts of vitamin C appears to accelerate ethanol and acetaldehyde metabolism and reduce their adverse health effects. Vitamin E and glutathione, which are anti-oxidants reduces the toxic activity of acetaldehyde.

Heroin use results in damage to the brain tissue from free radicals and in long term drug abusers there may be free radical damage that breaks or weakens the blood-brain barrier leading to infections in the brain. In this group of drug users, the free radical are different and the damage may be more specific and localized and explains why the symptoms may be different from the alcohol-abuse group,
in whom the free-radical damage is throughout the body with an exacerbation in the liver or other risk groups including the AZT-induced AIDS group.

Chemical stressors can act as free radicals or stimulate the production of free radicals that may initiate harmful chain reactions in the body. Practically every single medicament from the following groups have been found to have immunotoxic properties: antibiotics, antifungal, antiviral, and antiparasitic agents; tranquilizers, antiepiliptics, antiparkinson, and anesthetics; antihypertensive, anti-anginal, and antiarrhythmic drugs; gastrointestinal medications; antidiabetics, antithyroid drugs, and sex hormones including oral contraceptives; antiallergics; bronchodilating agents; anticoagulants, drugs acting on fibrinolysis, blood expanders, clotting factors, and inhibitors of platelet aggregation; non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids, antirheumatismal, and anti gout drugs; and immunodepressive and immunomodulating drugs such as antitumoral drugs and medications to avoid graft rejection.

The immunotoxicity of AZT has been solidly documented. Azidothymide (AZT) and AZT monophosphate (AZT-MP) in concentrations as low as 10 and 50 microM, respectively promote oxidation. This prescription drug for AIDS patients is a very toxic medication that promotes free radical generation in a cell free system and in the body.

Industrial chemical and environmental pollutants are another important source of different abnormalities upon lymphocyte activation, proliferation and differentiation, cytokine production, cytotoxic effect, antibody production, phagocytosis, natural killer cell activity, complement, etc. Also here, immunotoxicity has been found in practically every single chemical that has been tested from the following groups: heavy metals, pesticides, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons and derivatives, alcohols, phenols, and derivatives airborne pollutants including diesel engine emissions, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, sulfuric acid and food additives and preservatives.

The adverse effects of alcohol and other drugs on the immune system have been documented since the beginning of last century. There is a growing body of human and animal evidence of the immunotoxicity of tobacco smoke, alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, heroine, alkyl nitrites, metamphetamines, qualones and other street drugs. These facts form some of the scientific bases for the “drug-AIDS hypothesis”.

In my current opinion the HIV virus only causes disease after the auto-immune system is weakened or destroyed by immunosuppressants and free-radical damage caused to the auto-immune system and the endocrine system by benzene and its derivatives. It is not the first direct cause. This is the synopsis that must be proven or disproved based on science and lab work.

The picture that emerges is as follows:

1. We have generated huge amounts of atmospheric pollutants since 1970 and many toxic chemicals that enter the body and cause free radical chain reactions.
2. We created a large number of chemical-based products since 1970 for use in industry and in homes, including sexual lubricants and condoms with toxic chemicals that generate free radicals in the body.

3. We developed a very large number of prescription drugs and medication that are also toxic and generate free radicals in the body some of which cause mitochondrial depletion or have immunotoxic properties.

There is an obvious case to distinguish four types of AIDS: one that is caused by free radicals generated by pollutants; another caused by lifestyle toxic chemicals such as in alcoholics, drug abusers and the gay population; the third being correctly labeled as “prescription AIDS” as it is caused by prescribed medications; and in any of these cases where there is HIV virus infection, the virus gains entry into the cell through the cell wall that has suffered free radical damage. In of all these cases, only when the immune and endocrine systems are severely degenerate or destroyed will the opportunistic infections set in to manifest the full blown AIDS.

There is also the obvious pointer to include anti-oxidants into the practice of medicine and develop an alternative approach that considers concoctions from herbs that boosts the immune system or has a restorative effect on the endocrine system to protect the body from the mayhem of free radicals. We need to make a paradigm shift away from immunotoxic medication.

In untangling the myth of HIV, one needs to go back -
1st to late 1970's and early 80's - before US Secretary of Health and Human Services Maggie Heckler (slightly tipsy; staggering, made her way to the podium and, slurring her speech a little) announced that Robert Gallo had discovered the "cause of AIDS." "A virus." ("Science by press release"). One needs to *carefully* define AIDS - by which I mean:
T4 cells counts in the double digits (or even less) taken by repeated measures (at least twice) over the last 9-12 months; occurring (at that time) MAINLY in white, north American males engaging in (repeated) unprotected receptive anal intercourse.
The utility of this definition is that it avoids the massive confusion of the equation that (+)HIV=AIDS (or "AIDS spectrum disease")... Once a positive test for HTLVIII is equated with "AIDS spectrum" it becomes impossible to make sense of the epidemiological and treatment studies.
THEN, one needs to go back to the early 1960's, when the US National Cancer Institute evaluated AZT; and ruled out its use because of its truly exquisite hematotoxicity... notice that by shutting down the blood-system one effectively destroys also the patient's immune system... leading to... immune deficiency... leading to... (acquired) immune deficiency...
That is, AZT, given to perfectly healthly subjects, CAUSES "AIDS!"
(This **really** clouds the treatment studies. Suppose Mr. X is HIV+. We treat him with AZT. He dies of acquired immune deficiency... Well, no surprise, he had AIDS didn't he?)
Finally, one needs to go back to last issues of the American Journal of Syphilis
(1954). There the Editor reflects on the progress made in the scientific study and treatment of syphilis. And warns against complacency. Penicllin does not "cure" syphilis; that is, the standard treatment of a single shot of 6 M units of pencillin in the gluteus only checks the disease... infection by TP is for life...
He specfically warned against what was called early in the 20th century "malignant syphilis." Which was characterized by:
Karposi's sacrcoma; a PCP-type pneumonia; severe wasting; night sweats... any of this sound familiar?... One acquires malignant syphilis by 1st: initial infection with TP (unprotected receptive anal intercourse being an ideal vector); followed by RE-INFECTION occurring within a six to nine month period...
Duesberg is quite right in observing that HTLVIII does not - CANNOT - cause AIDS.
Furthermore, he is not required to state what does cause AIDS (and in fact, does himself a disservice, and weakens his scientific critique, when he ascribes AIDS to "drug use" &tc)

I'm surprised as to why nobody here has mentioned Dr. Hulda Clark's findings!
They're the ONLY ones to date (together with Dr. Harold Foster's) that make any REAL sense to me ... here at GROUND ZERO - Kwa Zulu Natal / South Africa.
This lady deserves her long overdue NOBEL PRIZE in my opinion!
"HIV is a virus.
AIDS is a condition.
Sometimes they occur together.
Sometimes they occur separately.
HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus.
AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome

The human intestinal fluke (Fasciolopsis buskii) is the source of the HIV virus. This parasite typically lives in the intestine where it might do little harm, causing only colitis, Crohn's disease, or irritable bowel syndrome, or perhaps nothing at all. But if it invades a different organ, like the uterus or the kidneys or liver, it does a great deal of harm. If it establishes itself in the thymus, it causes HIV/AIDS!

It only establishes itself in the thymus in some people. These people have benzene in their bodies. All HIV patients (100%) have both benzene and a stage of the intestinal fluke in their thymuses. The solvent benzene is responsible for letting the fluke establish itself in the thymus. In order to get HIV, you must have both the parasite and benzene in your body. The HIV virus belongs to this fluke. It is not difficult to kill this parasite and all its stages.

AIDS is a condition. When the thymus gland cannot "make" enough T cells, your immunity is lowered. Benzene is the cause of AIDS. Different toxins accumulate in different organs. If you eat or rub in the tiniest bit of benzene it goes directly to the thymus. It damages the thymus so much that everything else is allowed to land there, too: The mercury from metal tooth fillings, the copper from your copper water pipes etc. Is it any wonder that the thymus can't turn out T cells when it is full of bits of your toothpaste, your hand lotion, your hair spray, toxic food and beverages?

I got a mailing from the One Campaign of Bono to end poverty and AIDS. Not agreeing with the methods proposed, I tried to show my disagreement by unsubscribing. But it turned out not to be as easy as I thought. Here is the email I wrote in answer to BONO, posted here for the record...


Bono,

please unsubscribe me from your mailings. I tried to use your unsubscribe feature (link at the end of this mail), only to put my email and then end up on a "not found" page.

Finding another unsubscribe link, I tried again, but the "submit" button apparently does not lead to any action...

So please manually remove my email address from your database.

I do not subscribe to a campaign that pushes pharmaceuticals for AIDS. The reasons for this can be found in articles on my site. If you're interested at all, go to

www.newmediaexplorer.org/sepp/ and search "AIDS". You will find a number of articles that explain why it is not proper to give people toxic medication when they present with the AIDS syndrome.

Perhaps the single article that best describes why pushing AZT is in error, is HIV/AIDS - A Tragic Error.

Thank you for putting up a campaign to improve things. But please pay attention to the details - lest you push in the wrong direction.

Kind regards
Sepp

p.s. I also do not subscribe to a campaign for debt relief, without concurrent changes in the economic pre-conditions that the poor countries labour under. My view is here:

A very concise discussion of Aids drugs and the tests that convince people they should take them. If you can just fully understand this one short article ...

Written by Liam Scheff, forwarded by Croft Woodruff: Mar 17, 2006

Nucleoside analogues

Nucleoside analogues, like AZT, work by stopping cell division. They stop the formation of new blood in the bone marrow, in some cases causing anemia and bone marrow death. They've caused death in pregnant mothers, spontaneous abortion, birth defects, liver failure, pancreatic failure, muscle wasting, developmental damage and death in children and adults. They also may cause cancer.

Protease inhibitors interfere with the body's ability to build new proteins. Since we're made of protein, protease inhibitors have pronounced effects on physical appearance and organ function. The side effects can be bizarre, grotesque and often fatal: wasting in the face, arms and legs, fatty humps on the back and shoulders, distended belly, heart disease, birth defects, organ failure - and death.

Almost all of this is found on the warning labels.

The first AIDS drug, AZT, was designed in the 60s as a chemotherapy drug for cancer patients, but it was never approved. Critics declared it too toxic even for short-term use, yet in 1987 it was pushed through for lifelong use in HIV-positive people. Although its trials were later revealed to be fraudulent, AZT remains on the market.

Finally, there's Nevirapine, which also interferes with normal cell function. In test trials, Nevirapine has caused severe liver damage and death in dozens of patients. Most die from organ failure due to drug toxicity. Nevirapine can also cause a violent skin disorder called Steven-Johnsons Syndrome- a horrifying condition in which the skin blisters and ruptures or peels off in large swaths, leaving bloody, exposed flesh.

Despite causing so many serious medical issues in the course of treatment, AIDS drugs don't even claim to work. Every AIDS drug label bears a version of this caveat:

"This drug will not cure your HIV infection. Patients receiving antiretroviral therapy may continue to experience opportunistic infections and other complications of HIV disease. Patients should be advised that the long-term effects are unknown at this time."

So why do people take the drugs? Because they test HIV-positive.
Most HIV tests are antibody tests, which means that they can cross-react with normal proteins in human blood. There are nearly 70 commonly occurring conditions - as listed in the medical literature - that are known to make the tests come up positive. These include yeast infections, colds, flus, arthritis, hepatitis, herpes, recent inoculations, drug use and pregnancy.

The remaining HIV tests, called viral load tests, can produce dozens of conflicting results, even from the same blood sample.

HIV tests are so unreliable that they all bear a disclaimer:

"At present there is no recognized standard for establishing the presence or absence of HIV-1 antibody in human blood," or

"The AMPLICOR HIV-1 MONITOR [Viral Load] test is not intended to be used as a screening test for HIV or as a diagnostic test to confirm the presence of HIV infection," or

"Do not use this kit as the sole basis of diagnosis of HIV-1 infection" (Abbott Laboratories HIV Test, Roche Viral Load Test and Epitope, Inc. Western Blot Test, respectively).

And the kicker: Positive test results can occur due to "prior pregnancy, blood transfusions...and other potential nonspecific reactions" (Vironostika HIV Test, 2003).

In short: In the 90s, drug companies like Glaxo Wellcome and Abbott Labs began recycling old chemotherapy drugs for the new AIDS drug market. This market consisted of gay men who weren't told that the HIV test was a nonspecific antibody test. They were told, however, that AIDS was an unavoidable outgrowth of testing positive on this test, and that HIV was a fatal condition.

If you look in the medical literature, you'll find that neither of these assumptions is true.

This is junk putout by denialist. HIV tests are not prefect never is anything else.

I deal in FIV research and yes you can have less than prefect tests results mostly this occurs in new born cats as antibodies from mother go to the new born cat. This does not mean that the new born cat cells are infected with FIV only the antibodies exist. In older cats two tests are required to define FIV and this is simlar to HIV.

The big problem with blood tests is they are only concern with the blood and do not tell the condition of the immune system. Hopefully new tests will be become common so when can judge the condition of the immune system. If these tests were commonly available there would be alot less denialist as it is the limited tests cause all kinds of problems. We don't have this kind of problems when doing computer programming and when the computer dumbs on you, you know you make an error and not the computer.

There is no question about the flaws in the HIV testing with people who do reseach. But your not going to hear much about that. But it has nothing to do with what you have in these articles. It is a much different matter and are a concern in research. In reseach tests have to be created that do not exist in order to prove out some theories. Anyway, when you do clinical research article like you have here are worthless in dealing with patient problems. And like most things it is a matter of trial and error. Either it works or it doesn't. And these things need to be done a number of times to verify. That is a basic progress in medicine whether it is HIV, cancer or someother disease.

Arthur,

the article by Neville Hodgkinson which is the main subject of this post is not about the HIV test only, it challenges the belief you express on your page that

"AIDS is a infectious disease. It lasts a life time once it enters the cells in the body."

This has nothing to do with denial. It is the work of a man who has come to the conviction that the basic hypothesis (that Aids is an infectous disease) does not hold up under scrutiny.

If you would like to read up on why many people think that the hypothesis does not hold up, I recommend the excellent blog of Henry Bauer

http://hivskeptic.wordpress.com/

and his book: The Origin, Persistence and Failings of HIV/AIDS Theory
