HIV/AIDS Skepticism

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

The baby “cure”

Posted by Henry Bauer on 2013/03/05

I’ve remarked in responding to recent comments why the hullabaloo about a baby being cured of HIV infection rests on essentially no real evidence. An excellent exposition of that fact is in a piece at the website of the Alliance for Human Research Protection:

A Baby Alleged to Have been “HIV Infected” is “Deemed Cured”–But Where is the Proof?

  1. AHRPs Vera Sharav has an item commenting on this one on her site at

  2. “But Dr. Gay said that based on her experience…”

    Wait. What experience?

    I would be tempted to launch some kind of medical malpractice lawsuit. But then if it fails it would just add perceived moral weight to the doctor’s actions. It’s best to attack these things another way.

    I note that when a claim about homeopathy comes up the science enthusiasts are immediately skeptical (I have no opinion to give on homeopathy). But when a baby is allegedly cured of AIDS, it’s “Science, F— Yeah!” and high-fives. Skepticism, yeah – RIGHT!
