HIV Test Bogus - Based on Circular Reasoning

HIV tests are are not only unreliable - they have been tweaked to respond to protein fractions found most often in those people that are part of AIDS "risk groups", says Neville Hodgkinson, author of AIDS: The Failure of Contemporary Science in his latest article published last Sunday (21 May 2006) in The Business.

One story Hodgkinson relates in his thoughtful article is how the symbol of HIV infection - and certain AIDS death - was rejected in India and a national campaign abandoned, when "in front of television cameras, a six-foot red ribbon was cut into pieces as a protest against the 'oppressive and patronising' symbol." Veena Dhari, the first woman in India to declare herself HIV-positive, said that when HIV-positive people see the ribbon “we feel like committing suicide”.


Quite apart from the personal tragedies of people being labeled 'HIV positive' and effectively receiving a death sentence, the unreliability of the test, which makes such labeling a cruel if not criminal act, is becoming a major issue. Hodgkinson is not the only journalist saying that the retrovirus which supposedly causes AIDS is not being detected by tests, and indeed has never been properly identified as the cause of the syndrome.

Liam Scheff has contested more than a year ago, that no gold standard exists for the AIDS test, that is, the test cannot be validated against an actual virus isolated from patients that have the disease.

And Rebecca Culshaw, a mathematical biologist and assistant professor of mathematics says she quit her AIDS related work because of the substantial impossibility to model the spread of the disease and the effectiveness of preventive and curative efforts: "The biological assumptions on which the models were based varied from author to author, and this made no sense to me."

As if a bogus test was not enough, the treatment recommended after the verdict of "positive" virtually guarantees debilitating illness and eventual death. The "side effects" of the retroviral drugs which are the treatment 'of choice' include the very symptoms we describe as AIDS.

Not that there were any serious lack of natural treatment options without the deadly side effects, but they cost much less than the chemical drugs and can't be patented...

The circular reasoning scandal of HIV testing

By Neville Hodgkinson
21 May 2006

(See original in The Business on line)  

IT WAS an icon of compassion, a sign you cared. To wear the red ribbon meant to express solidarity with HIV/Aids victims everywhere. It signified you knew the importance of antiviral drugs and HIV testing, Aids awareness and condoms – and of the urgent need for a vaccine.


In contrast, if you cast doubt on the ever-burgeoning and massaged HIV/Aids statistics; or suggested the billions raised for HIV research and treatment might be better spent on established medicines and in fighting poverty; or – perish the thought – if you questioned the theory that Aids is caused by a sexually transmitted virus, you lost your right to be considered a sensible and decent member of the human race. You were a “denialist”, a “pariah”, a “flat-earther”, a “crackpot”. Even if you were a leading scientist, your funds would disappear and your ability to publish in mainstream journals reduced to zero.

Today, whether it is frightening the residents of a Cornish town with a cluster of purported infections, or causing the former head of South Africa’s National Aids Council to apologise for having unprotected sex with an HIV-positive Aids activist, or enabling U2 front-man Bono to edit an issue of the Independent newspaper dominated by impassioned accounts of Africa’s HIV/Aids plight, the virus that has held such sway in the popular mind for more than 20 years is still never long out of the news. It is now very big business: American Express, Motorola, Gap, Converse and Armani are among the corporate giants supporting Bono’s RED campaign promoting special products to raise funds for Aids in Africa.

But unreported in Bono’s Independent (or in any other edition of the paper, which for years has followed an unquestioning line on Aids) there are signs that the power of the red ribbon is in serious decline. In the United States, where respectable opinion has long held the HIV theory of Aids to be immune to questioning, a controversial 15-page critique in the influential Harper’s Magazine has caused culture shock. As well as detailing a cover-up by government scientists regarding Aids medication trials, the article approvingly quotes scientists who have argued for years that HIV is not the cause of Aids.

Meanwhile the Washington Post last month published an investigation headlined “How Aids in Africa was overstated”, arguing that “increasingly dire” and inaccurate assessments of HIV infection by UNAIDS (the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/Aids) had “skewed years of policy judgments and decisions on where to spend precious healthcare dollars”.

In India, a proposed Red Ribbon Campaign through the national rail network has been abandoned, following a national convention on HIV in Bangalore last October attended by more than 1,500 HIV-positive people where the once-fashionable symbol of Aids awareness was ceremoniously rejected. In front of television cameras, a six-foot red ribbon was cut into pieces as a protest against the “oppressive and patronising” symbol.

Speakers said there were no similar icons of solidarity for people suffering from other diseases. The ribbon’s connotations that “HIV=Aids=Death” – the scientific orthodoxy subscribed to by UN agencies, pharmaceutical interests and thousands of activists around the world – was said to further the isolation, discrimination and sense of doom suffered as a result of an HIV diagnosis. Veena Dhari, the first woman in India to declare herself HIV-positive, said that when HIV-positive people see the ribbon “we feel like committing suicide”. She called on all Aids organisations to stop using it.

The story appeared on the front pages of newspapers as well as national television in India, where media have proved more resistant than in most African countries to huge pressures to conform to international opinion on HIV/Aids.

Two years ago Richard Holbrooke, former US Ambassador to the United Nations and now president of the Global Business Coalition on HIV/Aids, an alliance of 200 international companies promoting Aids testing, treatment and support, said in Washington that a major impediment in dealing with Aids globally was that many governments – and people – were still in "a denial phase – they believe they have no Aids problem."

Citing India as an example, he said that if it did not change its policies, it would soon have the highest HIV/Aids tally in the world. By last year that had already happened, according to Richard Feacham, head of the Geneva-based Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the main beneficiary of the Product RED initiative.

"The epidemic is growing very rapidly. It is out of control," Feachem said in Paris. "There is nothing happening in India today that is big or serious enough to prevent it." India had to wake up, because without action, "millions and millions and millions are going to die."

That is not the view of Anju Singh, of JACKINDIA, a Delhi-based Aids policy study group. Singh, chief guest at the Bangalore convention, told The Business last week that "there are no reports – not even anecdotal ones – that reflect visible proof of an epidemic in this country." The official estimate for HIV infections is around 5m; but a dearth of Aids cases – averaging 10,000 a year over the past 10 years - suggests that is grossly wrong.

Nor has there been any abnormal increase in death rates, even in suspected "high risk groups" such as red light areas. The Indian government does not publish data for Aids deaths; but "questions we got asked in Parliament have elicited a cumulative figure of 1,100." When UNAIDS published a figure of 310,000 Aids deaths in India in 1999 alone, and a cumulative total of 558,000 Aids orphans, JACKINDIA challenged them publicly. In late 2001 the figures were withdrawn – but only after being used earlier that year to project the state of the epidemic in India at the UN General Assembly Special Session on HIV/Aids in New York.

"For years now, agencies like the CIA, World Bank, UNDP, UNAIDS, a plethora of NGOs as well as articles published in respected science journals have been talking of an exploding epidemic in India, and Africa-like conditions," Singh said. "We have consistently challenged the agencies that claim India is underplaying figures and is in denial; none of them has been able to provide any alternative data or evidence to substantiate their claims."

The iconoclastic Harper’s article, entitled "Out of Control: Aids and the corruption of medical science", has sparked intense debate. Greeted by a chorus of condemnation and calls for the resignation of Harper’s editor, it has nevertheless found many defenders. It was written by Celia Farber, a journalist and long-standing critic of the science surrounding the HIV theory.

In an editorial, the Columbia Journalism Review accused the magazine of "racing right over a cliff" in publishing Farber. A blog called New Aids Review responded that the editorial was "a poor specimen of what journalism students are learning at one of the great universities", adding that the author would do better to write a thesis on "The Media in Aids: How Journalists Failed the American Public".

But even some long-standing HIV/Aids activists have admitted themselves shaken by the facts Farber set out about the lethal potential of some antiviral drugs; and the controversy has also taken the lid off a claim made repeatedly in response to attempts to reopen debate on the causes of Aids, that only a handful of scientists question the orthodox view.
Thanks to the internet, an association started 14 years ago to press for a scientific reappraisal of the HIV/Aids hypothesis now lists more than 2,300 public dissenters, including Nobel Laureates in chemistry and medicine on its website ( Many have advanced degrees in the sciences and medicine as well as direct experience of working in the public health sector in Africa and other supposedly HIV-ravaged parts of the world.

One of these is Dr Rebecca Culshaw, assistant professor of mathematics at the University of Texas, a mathematical biologist who for 10 years studied and published models of HIV disease and treatment. In an internet posting entitled "Why I Quit HIV", Culshaw calls for a ban on HIV tests. She says they do "immeasurably more harm than good" because of an "astounding" lack of specificity and standardisation; she adds that many people are being treated with drugs on the basis of an insupportable theory. "My work … has been built in large part on the paradigm that HIV causes Aids and I have since come to realise that there is good evidence that the entire basis for this theory is wrong."

In Australia, the idea that anyone can be diagnosed as infected with HIV is to face a court challenge. In a hearing set down for July, the lawyer for a man found guilty of endangering the lives of three women through having unprotected sex (one woman has tested positive, while the other two are negative) is to call evidence from a Perth-based group of scientists who during nearly 25 years researching the scientific literature on Aids have come to an even more radical conclusion than the American dissenters quoted in Harper’s. The group ( will testify that "HIV" has never been isolated from the tissues of Aids patients; and that in consequence the HIV test has never been validated and there is no proof HIV is transmitted sexually.

Dr Robert Gallo, the American government researcher whose team developed and marketed the first test kits, says in a letter in this month’s Harper’s that "no test in medicine is perfect, but done correctly and with a confirmatory second test, the HIV blood test developed in our laboratory comes close." Gallo and others, including activists promoting anti-viral drugs in South Africa, make similar assertions in their rebuttal of Farber’s article stating that: "HIV tests were highly accurate from the time they were developed in 1984 and have become much more accurate over time as the underlying technology has evolved. HIV tests are amongst the most accurate available in medical science."

In fact, as demonstrated in a two-part investigation published in The Business in May 2004 (see panel), experts have known since the early years of Aids that "HIV" test kits could not be used to diagnose Aids. Delegates at a World Health Organisation meeting in Geneva in 1986 heard that the kits were licensed to protect blood and plasma donations, not as a screen for Aids or people at risk of Aids. But, dictated by public health needs, usage had expanded and "it was simply not practical" to stop this, as Dr Thomas Zuck, of the US Food and Drug Administration, put it.

The 100 experts from 34 countries heard that, though the tests were useful in safeguarding blood supplies, something more was needed to distinguish genuine infection with HIV. Dr James Allen, of the US Centres for Disease Control Aids programme, said studies suggested some people were reacting to components of the cell line used to grow HIV for many of the test kits licensed in America. Other reactions occurred because of antibodies to normal cell proteins, naturally occurring in the body. Allen warned that the problems could be magnified in areas of the world that did not have the sophisticated facilities of America.

The meeting was told that a so-called "confirmatory test", called western blot, relied on the same principle as the test kits it was supposed to be checking and so was liable to the same kind of false-positive reactions. Subsequent research has repeatedly confirmed this problem: more than 60 conditions that cause such false-positives have been documented. One is tuberculosis, which produces symptoms of Aids as defined in Africa and is immensely widespread among impoverished people.

As the HIV/Aids paradigm won worldwide acceptance, increasingly complex procedures for trying to make a reliable diagnosis came into being. But the basic problem – not being able to validate any of these procedures against pure virus taken from patients – still remains.

Harper’s has published pages of letters in the latest (May) issue in response to Farber’s article, which appeared in March. Roughly half are supportive, half against. The first letter is from Culshaw, who writes: "This debate should have happened long ago, before an unproven hypothesis of an immune-destroying retrovirus was thrust upon a vulnerable public, and without being thoroughly critiqued in the scientific literature. Despite the promises made in 1984, there is still no cure and no vaccine. Instead, there has been a fundamental erosion in scientific and clinical-trial standards, with implications reaching far beyond HIV.

"To do the best we can for those affected by Aids – including those in Africa, where Aids presents a clinical picture quite different from that in the developed world – there urgently needs to be an honest scientific debate."

There is an association between testing HIV-positive and risk of developing Aids. This is the main reason why scientists believe HIV is the cause of Aids. But the link is artificial, a consequence of the way the test kits were made.

It never proved possible to validate the tests by culturing, purifying and analysing particles of the purported virus from patients who test positive, then demonstrating that these are not present in patients who test negative. This was despite heroic efforts to make the virus reveal itself in patients with Aids or at risk of Aids, in which their immune cells were stimulated for weeks in laboratory cultures using a variety of agents.

After the cells had been activated in this way, HIV pioneers found some 30 proteins in filtered material that gathered at a density characteristic of retroviruses. They attributed some of these to various parts of the virus. But they never demonstrated that these so-called "HIV antigens" belonged to a new retrovirus.

So, out of the 30 proteins, how did they select the ones to be defined as being from HIV? The answer is shocking, and goes to the root of what is probably the biggest scandal in medical history. They selected those that were most reactive with antibodies in blood samples from Aids patients and those at risk of Aids.

This means that "HIV" antigens are defined as such not on the basis of being shown to belong to HIV, but on the basis that they react with antibodies in Aids patients. Aids patients are then diagnosed as being infected with HIV on the basis that they have antibodies which react with those same antigens. The reasoning is circular.

Gay men leading "fast-track" sex lives, drug addicts, blood product recipients and others whose immune systems are exposed to multiple challenges and who are at risk of Aids are much more likely to have raised levels of the antibodies looked for by the tests than healthy people – because the antigens in the tests were chosen on the basis that they react with antibodies in Aids patients. But this association does not prove the presence of a lethal new virus.

The tests do discriminate between healthy blood and the blood of patients with Aids or Aids-like conditions, because Aids patients suffer a range of active infections and other blood abnormalities, some of which are transmissible. This is why the tests are useful as a screen for the safety of blood supplies.

But to tell even one person that they are HIV-infected on the grounds that they have antibodies that react with the proteins in these tests is an unwarranted assault.

A recently released book:

The Origin, Persistence and Failings of HIV/AIDS Theory


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

Readers' Comments

"HIV tests were highly accurate from the time they were developed in 1984" claimed the advocates of the HIV causation theory of AIDS. Why only accurate? If HIV causes AIDS, it ought to specific, like all other antibody tests. Why is there an exception for AIDS? If a specific virus causes AIDS, why is is there no vaccine yet? It supports the fact that there is no specific viral cause for AIDS. Even Dr. Gallo's paper merely "suggests that HTLV-III may be the primary cause of AIDS" (Gallo et al, 1984, Frequent detection and isolation of cytopathic retroviruses (HTLV-III) from patients with AIDS and at risk for AIDS, Pubmed, May 4;224(4648):500-3).

As I predicted (see: AIDS, NON-HIV AIDS AND PRESCRIPTION AIDS), there will never be a vaccine for AIDS - "The only logical hypothesis is that toxic chemicals, whether or not they are approved for medication, if they generate free radicals in the body that decrease white blood cell count or kill T4 cells or damage the cell walls of cells of the immune system or the endocrine system will generate AIDS. It results in immune deficiencies or immune disorders or damage to the genetic material and explains the variation of the symptoms of AIDS and that also means there will be no such thing as an AIDS vaccine". How can there be a vaccine for a condition that is precipitated by excess free radicals?

Forty years ago, the so called risk group in poor societies was treated for malnourishment. Today they are treated with toxic retrovirals and a poison called AZT (which is toxic by inhalation, which means that without HIV=AIDS, if you inhaled AZT, you must be treated for the toxic exposure). But today AZT is medicine!

If AIDS was caused primarily by a virus as deadly as they said it was, the mathematical model would clearly show that to be the case but it proves otherwise. You might recall that the media at one time said that mathematical models predicted that entire African nations would be wiped out by AIDS.

The circular reasoning as brought out by this article is sufficient to call on the "bogus" nature of HIV tests but they help to sell retrovirals and AZT.

The circular reasoning appears sound but there is science to suggest or even clearly indicate that the Gallo isolate does not contain a virus but possibly polymer actin proteins produced by white blood cells under oxidative stress, the kind of oxidative stress found in malnourished people and in people recovering from malaria or flu etc. The antibodies in such people are an auto-immune response of their body to these polymer proteins. Hence they respond clinically to proper nutritional interventions (see: Are Malnutrition and Oxidative Stress the Cause of gp41, gp120 and gp160 in Robert Gallo's HIV Isolate?).

Medical science, as it presents itself today, is largely a treatment science wherein disease conditions are to be treated with drugs having abandoned health science which is about restoring health through biomolecules that promote and restore cellular function. This chronic deviation is slowly and progressively repositioning toxic drugs and chemicals as clinically useful and later on as harmless or even beneficial for people who have not yet developed any symptoms. As a strategy, toxic drugs appear to be moving in that cycle and AZT is a good example that has dogmatic support (see; Can I have my chemo supplement please?).

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and other branches of the Public Health Service (PHS), claim that AZT was beneficial for "HIV-infected�? persons with "mild symptoms of immune system damage�? and also for "HIV- infected persons who have not yet developed symptoms�? (AZT and Cancer, New York Native, 1987 October 19th, John Lauritsen). And the silver lining on the use of AZT is that it can preciptate conditions as seen in AIDS patients! which means that is immunosuppressive itself.

So, there is bigger picture then pure medical scandal because it involves institutional and political support? Hence AIDS is not just a tragic error but a well managed medical business that has become a nightmare for health.

Take a close look at Dr. Gallo's statement:

"Dr Robert Gallo, the American government researcher whose team developed and marketed the first test kits, says in a letter in this month's Harper's that "no test in medicine is perfect, but done correctly and with a confirmatory second test, the HIV blood test developed in our laboratory comes close."

Firstly, it is a scientific admission that his test is not virus specific. Perhaps he is trying to convey the truth about the HIV tests. Secondly, he says that you need a second confirmatory test. There is no confirmatory test as all of those "tests" carry the same disclaimer! So, a proper scrutiny of his statement as herein recorded in the article above, proves, even on legal analysis, that there is no virus specific test to prove a viral cause and it needs a confirmatory test. Who has this confirmatory test? No one.

In that context, look at the dissident scientific view that questions the isolation of the HIV virus, which is supposed to be big and complex but remains illusive. Then you get the whole perspective falling in place when looked at the fact Dr. Gallo offered no scientific proof of a virus as the specific cause of AIDS but said that it "may" be the primary cause of AIDS.

When he says, you need a confirmatory test, it puts another guy in business. And this other guy puts the same disclaimer on his test kit. That is a notorious example of modern science in business. A fictitious viral disease to be diagnosed by tests that cannot confirm and to be treated by a toxic poison that is "beneficial for "HIV-infected�? persons with "mild symptoms of immune system damage�? and also for "HIV- infected persons who have not yet developed symptoms." The morale of the story - science is enlightening but science can make suckers.

There was an interesting comment on an article on Indimedia Ireland Why Bono And HIV/AIDS Inc. Will Be Stopped by Cal but it appears to have been \"lost\", i.e. someone (accidentally?) deleted it.

If Indy is getting into censorship, that would indeed be grave. So I repost it and also put it on my own site... appending it to a number of articles on AIDS. Anyone interested can search the site for aids related articles (top center of page is the search window)...


Here is what Cal said:

\"OK ... I\'m precisely going through the flaws in the HIV tests.

The first is the Reverse Transcriptase test or viral load test.

\"Reverse Transcriptase from HIV-1 is of tremendous medical interest as it is the target enzyme for the best known of anti-AIDS drugs, AZT, which acts by causing chain termination of the polymerase reaction.\"
HIV-1 Reverse Transcriptase

The problem is that our genome contains 8 retrovirus in our DNA and these endogenous retroviruses also use Reverse Transcriptase, so how do we tell if it\'s our own HERVs or HIV. It all depends on the HIV antibody test to confirm if it is HIV Reverse Transcriptase.

Identification of an Active Reverse Transcriptase Enzyme Encoded by a Human Endogenous HERV-K Retrovirus

\"Phylogenetic analyses of retroviral elements, including endogenous retroviruses, have relied essentially on the retroviral pol gene expressing the highly conserved reverse transcriptase. This enzyme is essential for the life cycle of all retroid elements, but other genes are also endowed with conserved essential functions. Among them, the transmembrane (TM) subunit of the envelope gene is involved in virus entry through membrane fusion.\"

Identification, Phylogeny, and Evolution of Retroviral Elements Based on Their Envelope Genes

The next flaw is the p24 antigen of HIV which is claimed to be specific to HIV...

\"A major core protein of the human immunodeficiency virus encoded by the HIV gag gene. HIV-seropositive individuals mount a significant immune response to p24 and thus detection of antibodies to p24 is one basis for determining HIV infection by ELISA and Western blot assays.\"

HIV Core Protein

But everyone who consumes milk products or eats cattle will be exposed to the p24 of the Bovine Leukemia Virus and also can test positive to the test.

\"Using immunoblotting to test the sera of 257 humans for antibodies of four isotypes (IgG1, IgM, IgA, and IgG4) to the BLV capsid antigen (p24), we detected at least one antibody isotype reactive with BLV in 74 of the human sera tested.\"

Humans Have Antibodies Reactive with Bovine Leukemia Virus 2003

And anyone with lupus or hyperthyroid autoimmune diseases can also test positive to p24.
These diseases also have the similar symptoms to so called HIV infection.

\"We have previously demonstrated that about one-third of patients with either Sjögren\'s syndrome (SS) or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) react to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) p24 core protein antigen without any evidence of exposure to, or infection with, HIV itself.\"

Reactivity of Sera from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Sjögren\'s Syndrome Patients with Peptides Derived from Human Immunodeficiency Virus p24 Capsid Antigen

This is where it gets terrifying, I have in the last month swapped emails with a pregnant lady diagnosed with HIV, she was given all sorts of medication and also put under great pressure to take abortion pills which she did. She then re-tested and came up negative.
The reason for the positive cross-reaction with the test is due to the endogenous retrovirus HERV-W which is involved in attaching the fetus to the placenta, within the HERV-W is a gp24 transmembrane subunit. GP stands for glycoprotein and is shortened to protein when called P24, they are the same and react to an antigen test.

\"Syncytin is a fusogenic protein involved in the formation of the placental syncytiotrophoblast layer. This protein is encoded by the envelope gene of the ERVWE1 proviral locus belonging to the human endogenous retrovirus W (HERV-W) family. The HERV-W infectious ancestor entered the primate lineage 25 to 40 million years ago. Although the syncytin fusion property has been clearly demonstrated, little is known about this cellular protein maturation process with respect to classical infectious retrovirus envelope proteins. Here we show that the cellular syncytin protein is synthesized as a glycosylated gPr73 precursor cleaved into two mature proteins, a gp50 surface subunit (SU) and a gp24 transmembrane subunit (TM).\"

Synthesis, Assembly, and Processing of the Env ERVWE1/Syncytin Human Endogenous Retroviral Envelope

At the beginning of pregnancy a wave of de-methylation occurs and this is a normal part of pregnancy, this is also why the retroviruses come out of the genome and get active.
They are not a disease though, they have function.
Of course a drug like AZT which they give to pregnant women worldwide completely wrecks this process.

Hypomethylation affects T-cells as well as makes retroviruses come out of our DNA.
The T-cell test is really picking up changes in T-cell counts attributed to other real infections and problems with Methylation due to a lack of nutrients needed to Methylate.
It is not HIV causing the lowered count.

\"Procainamide and hydralazine inhibit T cell DNA methylation and induce autoreactivity in cloned CD4+ T cells. These drugs also induce an autoimmune syndrome, suggesting a possible relationship between DNA hypomethylation, T cell autoreactivity, and certain autoimmune diseases. To test this relationship, DNA methylation was studied in T cells from patients with rheumatoid arthritis and patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, and was found to be impaired. These results support a relationship between DNA hypomethylation and some forms of autoimmune disease.\"

Evidence for impaired T cell DNA methylation in systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis.

\"DNA methylation plays an essential role in maintaining T-cell function. A growing body of literature indicates that failure to maintain DNA methylation levels and patterns in mature T cells can result in T-cell autoreactivity in vitro and autoimmunity in vivo. Defective maintenance of DNA methylation may be caused by drugs such as procainamide or hydralazine, or failure to activate the genes encoding maintenance DNA methyltransferases during mitosis, resulting in the development of a lupus-like disease or perhaps other autoimmune disorders. This paper reviews the evidence supporting a role for abnormal T-cell DNA methylation in causing autoimmunity in an animal model of drug-induced lupus, and discusses some of the mechanisms involved. T cells from patients with active lupus have evidence for most if not all of the same methylation abnormalities, suggesting that abnormal DNA methylation plays a role in idiopathic human lupus as well.\"

DNA methylation and autoimmune disease.

\"Thus, the HIV LTR appears to be susceptible to transcriptional inactivation by methylation, a process that is proposed to play a modulatory role in viral latency.\"

Methylation as a modulator of expression of human immunodeficiency virus.

And researchers are looking at drug therapies to Methylate HIV and stop it.

Methylation Therapy

The main nutrient needed for Methylation is Selenium and this is probably why low Glutathione (a Selenium compound) is an indicator of AIDS progression.

Harold Foster is using it in Selenium trials in Africa
href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">

And Tine Van Der Maas is teaching Africans to treat themselves by using Lemons and Garlic (a food containing Selenium)

Nothing changed in the early 80s, the tests picked up retroviruses that came out when gays using Amyl Nitrate had depleted their bodies of Methylation Nutrients.
The HIV tests themselves have been the source of the epidemic.

It\'s up to the scientists now to go back to the drawing board and find a way out of this without massive litigation crippling the biomedical industry.

More if curious ... I've written about it in detail.

Why Retroviruses Appear in AIDS, Cancer and Autoimmune Diseases

Rap Kao, apparently an Indian living in the US, writes (by email):

Please help me out. I am so worried and stressed. I read your article about Bogus HIV scandal in India in 2006 where you said that HIV tests are not reliable. Now, I got the fear and anxiety that all HIV tests are not reliable and became stressed. I live in USA and going to get tested for HIV after 6 months which is the maximum window period for HIV testing. I am going to get tested at LABCORP which is the best lab in USA and they do FDA approved HIV tests and have highest quality. Please answer my questions as your article put me a very bad mental impact on me: MAY BE I MISINTERPRETED:

1) The article was all about HIV test scandal in India? Did you mean that HIV test kits were fake and bogus, not approved by FDA and not reliable in India?? OR did you mean HIV tests all over the world are fake??

2) I read the article also. There was an issue that HIV-positive people in India were thinking that HIV tests would diagnose AIDS but that is untrue. Am I right?? I would really appreciate if you answer my questions as I think I misinterpreted the article by thinking that HIV tests all over the world are bogus and fake. I am very worried and almost crying. Waiting for your reply soon.

My reply: seems that if you can get the standard insert for the tests, it actually states that the test may not be used to diagnose AIDS, that AIDS can only be diagnosed from the presence of clinical signs.

Some links to help you extend your research:

Of course you have to make up your own mind. All I can do is to point to inconsistencies in the official data. What you do in your life is entirely up to you. Don\'t take my word for anything. Go and research. You have the internet at your command. All the data are there if you just start looking.

A few more fun notes on...\'hiv testing\'! Babies, dogs, mice, cows, goats... all test positive! And healthy white heterosexuals, too (but they\'re \"false positives,\" dummy!)

from the article Sex Crimes (

\"Counseling people at low risk [wealthy, white, heterosexual] requires paying particular attention to false positives, that is, to the possibility that the client has a positive HIV test even though he or she is not infected with the virus.…If clients are not informed about this fact, they tend to believe that a positive test means that they are infected with absolute certainty…. Emotional pain and lives can be saved if counselors inform the clients about the possibility of false positives.\"

High frequency of false positive results in HIV screening in blood banks

\"Serologic tests for HIV antibodies appear to be characterized by extra-ordinarily high false – positive results in a low risk screening setting of voluntary blood donation1 Furthermore, any increase in false positive rate could turn a screening program into a social catastrophe. A false positive result may label an infant, born to HIV positive mother, as HIV positive where as the same infant may actually be HIV negative.2 The false positive result regarding HIV in a neonate can lead to very serious problems.\"

What Gallo did before HTLV-III. Fantasical Correlations! Unfounded Suppositions! Gallo Gallo Gallo!!

Babies, Cows, Goats, Mice:

\"Heterophile antibodies are a well-recognized cause of erroneous results in immunoassays. We describe here a 22-month-old child with heterophile antibodies reactive with bovine serum albumin and caprine proteins causing false-positive results to human immunodeficiency virus type 1 and other infectious serology testing.\"

\"We describe here a case of heterophile antibodies that are cross-reactive with bovine [cow] and caprine [goat] proteins occurring in a 22-month-old child, causing false-positive immunoassay results to human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and a number of other infectious serology tests.\"


\"Retroviruses have been isolated from a wide variety of species including humans…Immunoblotting (Western blot) is routinely used for detection of antibodies in human sera against HIV proteins.\"


\"A total of 144 dog sera were tested on Chiron Western blot strips. Of these, 72 sera (50) reacted with one or more HIV recombinant proteins.\"


\"Some canine sera contain antibodies that cross-react with different HIV structural proteins and to a limited degree with SIV (mac) core protein.\"

\"The majority of the sera reacted with the HIV core protein, although some sera reacted with more than one protein, which indicates a specific rather than a nonspecific reaction.\"


From the study:

* \"Alloimmune mice (mice that have been exposed to cells from another murine [mouse] strain) were shown to make antibodies against gp 120 and p24 of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and mice of the autoimmune strains MRL-_tpr/lpr_ and MRL-+/+ made antibodies against gp120.

* This is surprising because the mice were not exposed to HIV.\"


Hiv tests - 68 to 100 percent effective (in \'diagnosing Aids patients\')


84 - 100 percent, reactive in persons with \'related conditions!\'

Aids drugs bad, dec 2004:
AIDS drugs and adverse events during pregnancy

\"Investigators from the European Collaborative Study noted a \"worrying\" increase in severe pregnancy-related adverse events in HIV-positive women taking HAART, including the death of their babies during the early weeks of life and described adverse outcomes during pregnancy amongst women taking HAART.

[Call Delaney and Moore! I hear Denialism in this study!]

Fun with numbers, lies, pain, loss, deception and death.... It\'s Aids, incorporated.
