'Guinea Pig Kids' - BBC Video Raises Aids Lobby's Heckles

In the summer of 2004, Liam Scheff, an independent investigative journalist published the story of Incarnation Children's Center in New York, where experimental and highly toxic Aids drugs were forcibly administered to foster children of the State. Originally published in the article The House That Aids Built, the story was subsequently carried by The New York Press with the title: Orphans on Trial.


Children refusing medication were surgically implanted a tube to allow direct injection of drugs into the stomach - Image:

In November that same year, the BBC broadcast a video on the Incarnation story: Guinea Pig Kids. The video is available from this page, and here is a transcript (PDF). Nevertheless, in what appears to be an attempt to censor unwelcome information, some Aids treatment activists have now filed a complaint against the BBC, asking that the film be purged from the broadcaster's archives and any reference to it be removed from their website. The complaint is summed up by Chitra Bharucha, acting Chair of the BBC Trust as follows:

"The inflammatory film and companion written piece on the BBC website misrepresented as "human experimentation" on vulnerable children of color what were in fact crucial and successful efforts to make lifesaving treatments available to desperately ill foster children with AIDS through compassionate use of clinical trials of HIV drugs already approved for adults. Although the film was broadcast over two years ago, an article about it on the BBC website and the video, circulated by HIV denialists, continue to spread false and dangerous ideas about AIDS, antiretroviral treatments, the care provided to children at Incarnation Children's Center, and the importance of making lifesaving medications available to desperately ill children regardless of their family circumstances. The legitimacy accorded these erroneous ideas by the authority of the BBC facilitates the spread of disinformation, which in turn undermines prevention efforts and impedes treatment access, both by individuals and as government policy."

The whole text of the complaint can be accessed here.

Those complaining are advocates of the failed all-pharmaceutical solution to Aids. In their attempt to brow-beat the BBC into submission, they self-righteously conclude their missive with the words:

"The film's researchers Celia Farber and Liam Scheff as well as Christine Maggiore and David Rasnick who appear in the film, reject the solid scientific evidence that the virus known as HIV is the cause of the complex immune system breakdown known as AIDS, and that without treatment - the very treatment the children in ICC received through clinical trials - almost all HIV-infected people will die of illnesses related to the disease. None of them have any standing in the scientific community. Consequently, Doran [the BBC film-maker] defamed several institutions doing competent and important work. Doran's documentary is ignorant of the ethics of clinical trials, the role of state institutions who look after children and the science of HIV.

We call on the BBC to rectify immediately this betrayal of the public trust by taking the steps outlined above. Please respond at the earliest opportunity."

The problem here is that there's a cat struggling to get out of the bag. As a matter of fact, it may already have escaped ... and it won't be easy to put the screaming beast back in there. The information on the scandal that is Aids is out. It's all over the net, and the shameful censorship that the mainstream media can be subjected to may well work on the BBC, but it won't work with an army of individuals who have smelled the fresh air and who have seen, each one of us individually, a glimpse of the truth.

- - -

The great pharmaceutical business around Aids may well be on its way out. Retroviral drugs ARE damaging, and according to critics, they could be the major cause of death in Aids. Nutrition IS important for good health. That goes especially for those suffering from a stressed immune system. The tests for HIV are not reliable and indeed the HIVirus itself has never been properly isolated ... tests are finding stressed protein fractions that are not specific to any virus.

But as Liam Scheff rightly says, it might not even be a bad thing if BBC took the step to appease Aids Inc. and removed the film.

"... because as long as they scream:

"These drugs are great and everybody shut up, and the tests work, and anybody who says otherwise is a Denialist and a Liar!!"

Well, then, the court of public opinion is opened a crack, and I'm sure all of those (who do this work) are more than pleased to let the lights shine hard and freaking bright on the actual data, on what is actually known about the drugs, the tests, etc.

So, take it down, BBC, and let the actual debating really begin."

I tend to agree. What we need is an open discussion of the scientific merits of how we treat those unfortunate people who "test positive" to "antibodies" of a virus that can't be found. The wisdom of giving highly toxic medications to millions of Africans and to thousands of "high risk" (poor, black, hispanic, gay) individuals in the developed countries needs to be questioned and discussed. Aids is one of the greatest scientific scandals of the twentieth century - a scandal that should not survive in its present form in the century that just began.

Doubtful? Don't take my word for it - start your own research ... get past the propaganda of drugs - drugs - drugs and look, as I have, at the inconsistencies behind the scenes. You'll be appalled.

The ICC Investigation – Deaths in Studies with NYC Orphans – AHRP on the VERA Institute Report
The final report of the VERA Institute investigation commissioned in 2005 by the NYC Administration of Child Services will hardly put to rest the controversy surrounding a 20-year period during which children in foster care were subjected to toxic Phase I and Phase II AIDS drug and vaccine experiments–mostly without parental consent and without the protection of an independent advocate–as mandated by federal regulations in force then and now.

ICC Interview
In May 2003, I began my investigation of the Incarnation Children's Center (ICC), an orphanage in New York City's Washington Heights that was being used by government (N.I.H.) and pharmaceutical companies as a test center for the standard AIDS drugs – AZT and its analogues, Nevirapine, and the various protease inhibitors. ICC received funding from both government and corporate sponsors to enroll its wards, primarily abandoned children of drug (crack cocaine and heroin) abusers, in NIH clinical trials. What follows in this series are five excerpts of my October, 2003 interview with ICC's medical director Dr. Katherine Painter. In the interview, Dr. Painter provides information about:

1. Who gets into ICC and why.
2. The backdoor through which ICC's wards were used in government/pharma-sponsored Clinical Trials.
3. The measures taken to enforce 'adherence' to the drug regimen.
4. And a hint of the toxicity of the drugs (ie. their ability to "suppress" bone marrow and cause anemia).

On a personal note, I found it very uncomfortable to talk with the doctor, and to listen to her, as she seemed totally removed from what she was saying; dissociated, in a real sense; inured against the horror of what she was describing, of what she was participating in. Three and a half years later, I still find it almost impossible listen to.

The ICC Investigation – Thalidomide for Black Orphans
Thalidomide, the once-banned sleep-aid that caused a wave of severe and deadly birth defects in the late 1950s and early 1960s, has been reintroduced into the AIDS market (1), and was specifically used on at least one ICC resident in 2003-2004. I was told the story of a boy named Seon by child-care workers, nurses, former child residents and guardians of children in ICC. Seon was being dosed with many drugs at once through a gastric-tube into his stomach, because, I was told, he failed to adhere to his regimen...

The AIDS Investigation by Liam Scheff
In 2004, I broke open the NIH clinical trial scandal - government researchers using New York City orphans in clinical trials with combinations of highly toxic, speculative drugs.

Wellcome claims that AZT is an antiviral drug. Their leaflet gives the impression that AZT can target the HIV virus without killing cells (Meditel 1992) but Dr. Peter Duesberg asserts that it kills or inhibits all DNA synthesis. Some of the symptoms observed in AIDS patients are muscle wasting, chronic tiredness and mDNA depletion. This means that the genetic material in mitochondria (the power house of the cell), is destroyed or depleted or its multiplication is inhibited and the energy output drops and the affected person feels muscle pains and fatigue. Over time, AZT came to be associated with interference with DNA synthesis in mitochondria just as in AIDS (see: The AZT Label).

An article in the New England Journal of Medicine describes the muscle wasting caused by AZT and compared it to muscle wasting, called "myopathy", presumed to be caused by HIV. Their comments in the abstract are shocking: "We conclude that long-term therapy with Zidovudine can cause a toxic mitochondrial myopathy, which... is indistinguishable from the myopathy associated with primary HIV infection..." That finding is exactly what Glaxo Wellcome puts as a warning in large, bold-faced, capital letters at the start of the section in the 1998 Physician's Desk Reference that describes AZT (brand name Retrovir or Zidovudine):


A study on cardiovascular toxicology reports "AZT treatment increases superoxide (oxygen free radical) production�? and "the effects of AZT on endothelium-dependent relaxation are eliminated by pre-treatment with a free radical scavenger�? (anti-oxidant) which proves that AZT toxicity is due to its free radical generating capacity. This study also provides the scientific inference that AIDS can be caused by excess superoxide free radicals and oxidative stress. 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.

AZT has effects of toxicity in animals and humans. "It produces excruciating headaches; severe nausea; muscular pain; wasting of the muscles; damage to kidneys and nerves; excruciating pains in the legs; encephalitis; severe anemia requiring transfusions to stay alive; lymphoma (cancer); cancer in 49 of cases, versus 2 incidence in non AZT group; liver damage; nail dyschromia (fingernails turn black); insomnia; impotence; dementia; mania; ataxia (failure of muscular coordination); seizures; alopecia (hair falls out). It is a fairly well established fact that AZT was designed to kill the bone marrow. It causes neutropenia or leukopenia (loss of white blood cells) or bone marrow aplasia and bone marrow toxicity. White blood cells are the basis of the immune system. T cells, granulocytes, those are all parts of the immune system. You kill those with AZT and the immune system is gone,�? Harvey Bialy, Research editor Bio/Technology Science Journal.

AZT is so toxic and it probably has the largest number of side effects listed by its manufacturer which speak of the free radical generating capacity that causes oxidative stress throughout the body:

Body as a Whole: abdominal pain, back pain, body odor, chest pain, chills, edema of the lip, fever, flu syndrome, hyperalgesia;

Cardiovascular: syncope, vasodilation;

Gastrointestinal: bleeding gums, constipation, diarrhea, dysphagia, edema of the tongue, eructation, flatulence, mouth ulcer, rectal hemorrhage;

Haemic and Lymphatic: lymphadenopathy; musculoskeletal:arthralgia, muscle spasm, tremor, twitch;

Nervous: anxiety, confusion, depression, dizziness, emotional lability, loss of mental acuity, nervousness, paresthesia, somnolence, vertigo;

Respiratory: cough, dyspnea, epistaxis, hoarseness, pharyngitis, rhinitis, sinusitis;

Skin: acne, changes in skin and nail pigmentation, pruritus, rash, sweat, urticaria;

Special senses: amblyopia, hearing loss, photophobia, taste perversion;

Urogenital: dysuria, polyuria, urinary frequency, urinary hesitancy.

That sums up its toxicity and the extent of its capacity to generate free radicals in the body – it is toxic to the whole human body and if you take it to keep HIV at bay, you will die of AIDS.

In contrast, Wellcome's AZT promotional leaflet in the UK states:

'Zidovudine... improves both the quality and length of life.'

AZT advertisement in the Lancet reads;

"Helping keep HIV disease at bay in children. Generally well tolerated; Improved cognitive function; Survival rates similar to adults; Improvements in growth and well being. RETROVIR. A world of antiretroviral experience.�?

(cf: Debating AZT; Mbeki and the AIDS drug controversy).

The Wellcome promotional literature and the ad in the Lancet is false and misleading. It leads the lay public to believe that AZT is in fact a health supplement that:

1. Improves quality of life and length of life, and
2. improves cognitive function, and that
3. there are improvements in growth and well being!

And AZT is positioned in the ad as part of a "world of antiretroviral experience�? making it sound like it is a happy leisure holiday that all ends well.

How does an extremely toxic drug that generates superoxide in your body and is more properly classed as a poison because it is "toxic by inhalation�? (see: The AZT label) actually improve the quality and length of life, improve cognitive function, improve growth and well being? This is a secret only known to the HIV posse. And the medical authorities are keeping mum as a mummy on the AZT toxicity and the fact that it actually precipitates the very same condition that it is approved to treat!

Something very grave is amiss. The scientists who are associated with the HIV have published papers stating that oxidative stress aids the progression of AIDS. And AZT generates so much superoxide that it induces oxidative stress that eventually lead to all those documented side effects and the congenital defects documented by doctors who studied pregnant mothers who were given AZT or retroviral cocktails with AZT.

This betrayal of public trust in the HIV science is more than a scandal. It is a HOAX (see The HIV Hoax).

This is from a recent press release:

Rethinking AIDS Asks BBC to Reject Call to Censor BBC Documentary About Forced Drug Experiments on Children

SAN FRANCISCO, March 7, 2007 -- Rethinking AIDS, a global organization of more than 2,300 scientists, medical doctors, journalists, health advocates, and business professionals, asked the BBC today to reject a call for censorship of the 2004 documentary film Guinea Pig Kids. The film, co-produced with NDR, German public television, exposed drug experiments on poor, mostly Latino and African-American New York City children presumed to be HIV positive, conducted at Incarnation Children's Center (ICC) in Manhattan.

In a March 7, 2007, letter to the acting chair of the BBC Trust, RA president Dr. Etienne de Harven wrote, "Thanks to the BBC exposé and other investigative reports in the U.S. and Europe, the disturbing practices at the ICC came to the attention of human rights organizations and local government agencies, prompting hearings, investigations and media coverage that continue to this day."

On January 10, 2007, several AIDS researchers sent a complaint letter to the BBC asking it to remove "editorial support," which includes a transcript of the film, from the BBC Web site and that an apology for "false and misleading" portrayal of the children as "guinea pigs" be posted in its place. The documentary investigators found, however, information from ICC's own former Web site, as well as the Web site of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), indicating that ICC used children to test not only unusually high numbers of highly toxic drugs (mixtures of up to eight drugs) but also at doses that were significantly higher than normal. (See also, the BBC's follow-up story.)

RA has urged the BBC to "refuse censorship of this vitally important film, continuing the courageous stance that led to the pursuit of this story." It requested that coverage of Guinea Pig Kids remain on the BBC Web site and that no apology be issued for what is an accurate report.

The February 2007 issue of Essence magazine contains a feature article inspired by the film, originally aired November 30, 2004. Initial stories ran in the New York Post, New York Press, Fox News and the British Observer. There is evidence that such abusive practices persist in New York, the U.S. and around the world.

RA's letter, and the letter of complaint to which it responds, are available here.

Web site:

Rethinking AIDS: The Group for the Scientific Reappraisal of the HIV/AIDS Hypothesis ("RA�? or "the Group�?) was formed in 1991 to express the concerns of a growing number of renowned scientists and medical doctors about HIV research and the resulting human rights abuses. In 1995, by a letter published in The Lancet, the Group called for a thorough reappraisal of the existing evidence for and against the HIV/AIDS hypothesis and recommended that critical epidemiological studies be undertaken.

Among RA's founders are Harvard microbiologist Dr. Charles Thomas; 1993 Nobel laureate for chemistry Dr. Kary Mullis; Nature Biotechnology co-founder Dr. Harvey Bialy; University of California at Berkeley molecular biologist Dr. Peter Duesberg and the late Yale mathematician Dr. Serge Lang, both members of the National Academy of Sciences; professor of medical physics at the Royal Perth Hospital in Western Australia Dr. Eleni Papadopulos; and Glasgow University professor emeritus of public health and World Health Organization consultant Dr. Gordon Stewart.

The Group's current president, Dr. Etienne de Harven, is a professor emeritus of pathology at the University of Toronto and a former cancer researcher at Sloan-Kettering Institute, New York (1956-1981). He produced the first electron microscopic studies of a retrovirus (the murine Friend leukemia virus) and was director of the Electron Microscopy Laboratory at the Banting Institute, Department of Pathology, University of Toronto.
