Special Issue Seeks to Dispel Myths About AIDS Treatment and Prevention
September 22, 2000
AIDS Treatment News/MedscapeWire

A special issue on AIDS treatment has been released by AIDS Treatment News that attempts to counter misinformation about the treatment and prevention of HIV and AIDS. Some of the misinformation includes that HIV/AIDS will not cause harm or does not exist, that drugs used to treat HIV infection and AIDS are dangerous, and that HIV does not cause AIDS.

Those who promote these ideas are known as denialists -- they call themselves HIV dissidents. Their theories may be presented and supported by misused references or data taken out of context from legitimate journal articles. While some denialists have tried to investigate both sides of the issue, the editor of AIDS Treatment News, John S. James, warns that "medical cultists, flush with mystery money but with no responsibilities for actual AIDS research or patient care, have spent years learning how to slickly package their arguments, complete with celebrity endorsements."

This special issue of the journal focuses on bringing together findings of recognized scientists and explaining them for those who are not medical specialists. The issue is available free of charge on the journal's Web site at, as well as in PDF format (Adobe Acrobat required) at

I am NOT trying to give you publicity, just trying to get you people off this board.... Go find something else to do with your lives other than to pass out bad info.
GET A LIFE & leave us alone!
