Spontaneously generated HIV

Posted by Henry Bauer on 2011/03/09

HIV/AIDS true-believers seem content to find “HIV” even when there is no conceivable source of it: not infected needles, not sexual intercourse, not blood transfusion, not via breast milk . . . . [Spontaneous generation of “HIV”, 2009/10/25]. Here’s another example of that:

A 13-year-old Indian girl presented with symptoms that defied diagnosis:
Jhuma Sankar, Dinesh Raj, Jeeva Sankar, Pradeep K. Sharma, Rakesh Lodha & S. K. Kabra, “HIV infection mimicking autoimmune disorder”, Indian Journal of Pediatrics, 74 [2007] 777-80.

The girl had been hospitalized several times before: at 6 months for diarrhea; at 6 years with pneumonia; and at 13 with humoral immune deficiency and collagen vascular diseases (which include autoimmune diseases like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis), and she was tested inconclusively for tuberculosis. The girl was treated with intravenous antibiotics, and discharged. But two months later she was back in hospital. Further tests were now done, including for HIV even though there were absolutely no known risk factors for it (including healthy parents) and some of the laboratory tests were like those associated with lupus. Nevertheless, treatment for the girl’s manifest symptoms was augmented with antiretrovirals: nevirapine, lamivudine, and stavudine. Twenty days later, the girl was dead.

Of course, she might well have died even without the antiretroviral drugs. But feeding her such toxic substances when she was already gravely ill could hardly have helped.

I find it remarkable that there is no discussion in this article of how the girl is supposed to have become infected with HIV. One has to conclude that these physicians are unaware of the fact that a large variety of illnesses and other physiological conditions can falsely deliver “positive” “HIV” tests. They are far from alone in this, of course; but it still seems like malpractice, if that can include incompetence .

“HIV” can harm without even existing

Posted by Henry Bauer on 2011/03/01

A number of people have told publicly their stories of damaged lives through purported “infection”, when all that happened was that a highly fallible test was misinterpreted. Tommy Morrison has recently gone to some lengths to bring public attention to his own such story: Twice boxing champion, career destroyed by such a “positive” test.

One arena where he tells his story is on YouTube, in

two

parts.

These pieces, about 15 minutes each, are well worth watching; not only for the anecdote about HIV-harm but insights into several aspects of life that are not known to people who have never experienced any real hardship.
