If your browser doesn’t support RSS, you can get a plug-in, or use Google Reader. The Google page has “more” on the top line at the right, clicking that gives a list including Reader. Click on that and a page comes up with a left sidebar that includes “Subscription”. Click on that and search for “hivskeptic”. That should bring up my blog. After that, you should be able to see new items whenever you open Google Reader. You may need to create a Google account, but it’s free–and very useful, I’ve been using Google Alerts for some time to keep up with news on several topics.

  1. Dear Henry H. Bauer,

    I enjoyed your short piece on Goldacre’s low standards. However, it is up to ‘our side’ as well to ensure that we review the available literature about such people. If you had, you might have come across my e-book, ‘Cultural Dwarfs and Junk Journalism:Ben Goldacre, Quackbusting and Corporate Science’. A look at this would have given you slightly more history, a little more background and more ammunition.

    The book is available from my web site http://www.slingshotpublications.com, but if you’re as hard up as I am, which I doubt is possible, I will send you the download code for free.

    Your blog looks very good and I was pleased to find it.

    Best Wishes,
    Martin J Walker

      Martin (Walker):

      I certainly accept and agree with your point that “we” also need to gather background information. To explain may not be to excuse, but you are probably as aware as I am that there’s never enough time. I try to stay focused on finding the best arguments against HIV/AIDS theory, and even there I’m often aghast at what I haven’t come across and learned. For several decades, science & technology studies has been my special interest, and that Goldacre column just got my goat. Re the further information that Goldacre is himself a doctor: as I repeat often, doctors aren’t scientists, and it isn’t helpful when some of them imagine that they understand what science is about.

      Nothing above is intended to deny that an apology to you is certainly in order for not knowing about your book, “Cultural Dwarfs and Junk Journalism: Ben Goldacre, Quackbusting and Corporate Science”, and I hope visitors to this blog will take the opportunity to visit your website and browse among the intriguing titles. I did note that your 1993 “Dirty Medicine” is available there at much lower cost than the used copies listed on Abebooks (which is my first resort always when looking for reasonably priced books).

      I’ve gotten only to the dedication of “Cultural Dwarfs…”. I remain agnostic about Jacques Benveniste’s evidence as to high-dilution effects, in part because of the strange alternation in sequential dilutions; but I had the pleasure of conversations with him at several meetings of the Society for Scientific Exploration and have no reservations about his integrity and dedication to good science and medicine, and I gained valuable insights from several of his comments at one of my talks.

      Regards and best wishes.

    Dear Mr Bauer,

    I remember reading a post on here about a porn case, in which an actor infected 4 actresses and they find proof of transmission via PCR. I can’t seem to find it anywhere the next day in your blog trying all sort of keyword search. Could you please locate it somewhere for me as there is heated argument in that post which I don’t understand due to their technical details and I think I need to read these comments over and over again.

    Regards

      Qyuyen: A search of my blog for “pornography” yields “Porn industry proves that ‘HIV’ is not sexually transmitted”, 13 June 2009. However, I don’t recall ever seeing anywhere a suggestion that PCR proved transmisison in that case. Furthermore, the iconic early case of supposedly proven transmission by genetic analysis, the Florida dentist, has been questioned by Root-Bernstein (“Dental and research transmission of acquired immune deficiency syndrome? Or, is there any evidence that human immunodeficiency virus is sufficient to cause acquired immune deficiency syndrome?”, Medical Hypotheses 47 #2, August 1996, 117-22) and Steven Barr.
