HIV/AIDS Skepticism

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

Intestinal dysbiosis: more and more confirmations

Posted by Henry Bauer on 2011/05/24

Recently I mentioned a conference presentation from a few months ago that offered support for Tony Lance’s ideas about the role of intestinal dysbiosis in “HIV/AIDS”: probiotic treatment decreased “immune activation” — which is the latest, currently favored mainstream “explanation” for the damage that “HIV” supposedly causes — and increased CD4 counts. Just now I received from Prof. Marco Ruggiero an article that underscores this observation: “Probiotic yogurt consumption is associated with an increase of CD4 count among people living with HIV/AIDS”, by Stephanie L. Irvine, Ruben Hummelen, et al., Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology 44 [2010] e201–e205.

The article is, of course, imbued with mainstream belief, for example “HIV” is blamed for any and every aspect of bad health: “micronutrient deficiencies, diarrhea, and other conditions associated with HIV infection” [my emphasis]. Nevertheless, it cites another 5 articles that report decreased mortality and increased CD4 count merely from increased micronutrient intake especially vitamins B, C, E; and articles associating “HIV” with damage to the gut that is potentially reversible with the aid of probiotics. The latter have also been found to work against the Th1/Th2 imbalance that is one of the characteristics of “HIV/AIDS”. (For a discussion of Th1/Th2 in this context, see Rebecca Culshaw, “Mathematical modeling of AIDS progression:
Limitations, expectations, and future directions”, Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, 11 [2006] 101-5.)
