Viral Load: A Deception
      #8997 - 08/29/00 11:49 PM

Viral load testing is a deceptive practice, as the results are skewed in such a way as to reflect a number of viral units that is far greater than the number of CD4 cell units.

For example: let's assume your viral load results are 100,000 and your CD4 cells are at 350. Those numbers sound terrifying, because on first examination it would appear that the number of viral units far outweigh your CD4 cells.

However the volume of plasma used to perform these two tests is quite different. The volume of plasma it took to produce the viral load count is one thousand times greater than the volume of plasma it took to produce the CD4 cell count.

If you were to equalize the volumes from which the measurements are taken, you would have either:

1) A viral load of 100,000 with a CD4 cell count of 350,000;

2) a viral load of 100 with a CD4 cell count of 350.

Most people are going to have many more CD4 cells than viral copies, even when viral load is "high".

Now, when you take into consideration that over 98% of the virus represented by the viral load measurement are noninfectious, another set of number emerges:

1) A viral load of 200 with a CD4 cell count of 350,000;

2) a viral load of 2 with a CD4 cell count of 350.

These numbers present a great difficulty for those promote the HIV/AIDS theory. For the first time in the history of infectious disease it is being claimed that immune systems are being destroyed by noninfectious virus.

These stupids who insist that hiv doesnt cause AIDS and so are a bunch of idiots. People are dying of AIDS that is produced by hiv. Period.
