Lipoatrophy, Lipodystrophy, and Simian DNA

Jan 17, 2010

You know in looking at the effects of Lipoatrophy and Lipdystrophy and then looking at apes or monkeys from where supposedly HIV came from, do you think there is any possibility of body changes being derived from simian DNA bonding with human DNA? With HIV acting as a sort of delivery agent? Thought only occured because you look at a monkey or ape and they have thin arms and legs and big bellies. Is this totally crazy or is there a possibility of this?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You make an interesting connection. I am not sure we have any data that connects those dots.
