HIV/AIDS Skepticism

Pointing to evidence that HIV is not the necessary and sufficient cause of AIDS

HIV DOUBLETHINK

Posted by Henry Bauer on 2007/11/27

Doublethink is the act of simultaneously and fervently holding two mutually contradictory beliefs. It is an integral concept of George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four
——-cr. Wikipedia

What is the greatest tribulation for a continent ravaged by a deadly incurable virus spread sexually and from mother to child, where in many parts of that continent the infection rate is as high as 30%, occasionally even higher?

High birth rates, of course:

“’High birth rate soaring HIV spread, say experts’, Evelyn Lirri, The Monitor (Kampala), 10 November 2007 (http://allafrica.com/stories/printable/200711100030.html, accessed 11 November 2007)

Uganda’s high population growth rate threatens to undermine efforts to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic . . . . At a growth rate of 3.2 per cent, there is a greater risk of women giving birth to HIV/AIDS positive babies through mother-to-child transmission . . . . at least 110,000 children are living with AIDS in Uganda . . . . mother-to-child transmission is the second biggest mode of HIV/AIDS transmission in Uganda. . . . with Uganda’s high birth rate–one of the highest worldwide–chances of women giving birth to HIV/AIDS infected children is very high. . . . Every year, about one million babies are born to HIV positive mothers and out of these at least 25,000 get infected with the virus. . . . 7.9 per cent of women have HIV/AIDS”.

* * * * * *

Obviously:
1. Having HIV/AIDS doesn’t affect a woman’s capacity to carry and deliver children: nearly 8% of women have the disease, yet Uganda’s birth rate is among the highest in the world.
2. The rate of transmission of HIV from mother to child is only 2.5%.

But wait:
“It is estimated that about 15-30 per cent of babies born to HIV positive mothers will become infected during pregnancy and delivery and another five to 20 per cent will be infected through breastfeeding.”

So: it isn’t a mere 25,000 babies who get infected, it’s 150,000-300,000 during pregnancy and another 50,000-200,000 during nursing–200,000 to 500,000 per year from 1 million births: 20-50% of births.

Now, the HIV/AIDS epidemic is a couple of decades old, so this has been going on for quite some time, and antiretroviral treatment has been quite inadequate. The present generation of child-bearing women stems from babies born near the beginning of the epidemic and since. In that time, 20-50% of those cohorts must have died of AIDS–and, indeed, few of all the infected babies born even in the last decades or so are still living; of 200,000 to 500,000 per year, times ten or twenty years, only about “110,000 children are living with AIDS in Uganda” (above).

For a decade or more, 20-50% of potentially childbearing women have been dying, leading to one of the world’s highest birth rates.

Morals of this story:

Disease leads to high birth-rates, which further spreads disease.
When “experts say”, don’t believe a word of it.
HIV/AIDS numbers don’t add up.
Trust the media to disseminate absurdities with a straight face.
HIV/AIDS theory is impervious to contradictions.

    Dr. Bauer,

    This is an excellent blog, and you have distilled a complex problem (arguably a farce) into clear answer. I salute you.

  2. Dear Dr Bauer

    Thank you very, very much for the initiative of this blog – you are filling a space left by Dr Harvey Bialy. We need rock-solid writing like yours – like rain weathering rock over geological time, our combined efforts will eventually achieve critical mass, & cause the entire edifice of lies to come smashing down.

  3. Your blog is very insightful. There is much “doublethink” behind hiv/aids science. As a lactation consultant who has worked with breastfeeding mothers, [I know that] the discouragement of breastfeeding because of hiv/aids in the US is doublethink. [There are] patents on human milk components (lactoferrin, HMFG) to inactivate and treat hiv/aids. They are owned by the infant formula, pharmaceutical, and supplement (colostrum with lactoferrin) industries. These patents are based on research of human milk and its abilities to inactivate various pathogens. So while we will feed, treat, and vaccinate against hiv/aids using human milk components genetically engineered, we will “discourage” breastfeeding. So while our science believes in the equivalence of human milk components to that which is genetically engineered, at the same time they believe that women shouldn’t breastfeed. Convenient thinking or doublethink.
    In appreciation for pointing out the many inconsistencies of hiv/aids theory.

    Yes i know intelligent people who subscribe to the notion that HIV causes AIDS via unprotected sex etc. They cannot comprehend that i and many others think otherwise. However they rarely if ever address the facts and contradictions inherent in the conventional theory but rather revert to ad hominem attacks on their critics. This blog calls it as it is. No rational person can refute the logic of the
    argumentation laid out here so cogently.
