HIV/AIDS Skepticism

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

The Unending Human Tragedy—and Scientific Scandal— of HIV/AIDS

Posted by Henry Bauer on 2019/03/08

The need to check facts carefully has become something of a shibboleth with respect to present-day political discourse in the United States. Only voices crying in the wilderness, however, have pointed to the need for fact-checking what society gleans from the scientific community — see my Science Is Not What You Think: How It Has Changed, Why We Can’t Trust It, How It Can Be Fixed (McFarland, 2017).

The title of this blog is also the title of my review of How to Survive a Plague: The Inside Story of How Citizens and Science Tamed AIDS by David France, a 2012 film and 2016 book, both of which received enthusiastic plaudits from the mainstream media and which repeat and thereby entrench the mistakes of HIV AIDS theory and practice.

The opening and closing paragraphs of my review reflect that the Journal of Scientific Exploration, in which it is published, specializes in anomalistics which refers to such topics as Loch Ness Monsters, Bigfoot, UFOs, psychic phenomenon, that are ignored and denigrated by mainstream science.

  1. Funny you bring up the Loch Ness monster. HIV is like that. There are a few grainy photos, and a few people say they’ve seen it. But we’re still waiting for proof. Perhaps send Gallo and Montagnier to the bottom of the Loch?

    link to your book review is broken

    • Boris: THANK YOU. Should now be fixed, but clicking on “review” brings screen with icon for the pdf, need to click that. I don’t understand this complication, doesn’t happen to me on Chrome browser, which I use for creating posts, the review pdf comes up immediately; but the 2-step happens on Firefox.

    This made me laugh and shake my head at the same time:

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-china-genes-idUSKCN1T41ZO

    “LONDON (Reuters) – A rogue Chinese scientist who caused outrage last year when he said he had created the world’s first “gene-edited” babies in an attempt to protect them from HIV may also have put them at risk with a “foolish” choice of gene, experts said on Monday.”

    There are also scientists trying to ‘protect us’ from ‘global warming’. This is reprehensible malpractice by delusional, self-aggrandizing idiots.

    • kdghantous:
      Yes indeed, laugh at the idiocy but cry at the fact that there is so much of it aroound, often unacknowledged. “Genetically modified” plants and resulting foodstuffs are made by people who do not really know what they are doing, because we do not yet understand the interactions and feedbacks among “genes” and “junk DNA” in genomes
