Problems with HIV Science
      #209059 - 09/28/06 06:23 PM

By Matthew Irwin, MD

The author, a family practice physician in Washington, DC, reviews the evidence that has led him to the conclusion that the HIV=AIDS hypothesis is fundamentally flawed.


Disagreement about HIV's role in causing AIDS has been curiously absent from public and scientific debate, even though many of the 700 M.D.'s and/or Ph.D.'s of The Group for the Scientific Reappraisal of the HIV/AIDS Hypothesis have published their reasons for their concern (Philpott 1999). Members of this group include current and former professors of molecular and cell biology at Harvard, Berkeley, and other prestigious universities, as well as two Nobel Prize winners in chemistry, Walter Gilbert and Kary Mullis. HIV is a "retrovirus", and Peter Duesberg, one of the earliest people to call for reappraisal, has been called the "father of retrovirology". David Rasnick, the president of the Society for the Scientific Reappraisal of AIDS, holds nine patents on protease inhibitors, the drugs claimed to have saved many people from the brink of death. And yet, Dr. Rasnick adamantly maintains that these drugs are contributing to, or directly causing their deaths rather than helping them. For a topic which has become so entrenched in the national and world-wide mindset, such a large number of dissenting voices among people with the highest credentials in their fields is unusual, to say the least, and yet researchers, health professionals, and the public have not been informed about the magnitude of the debate, or about the reasons why these dissenting scientists are questioning conventional dogma.

HIV is claimed to cause a wide variety of symptoms in people who test positive on the HIV antibody test, but even for the most common symptoms, like immunosuppression and low CD4 T-cells, there is continued difficulty and disagreement in understanding the mechanism involved (Balter 1997), a fact that has led the original discoverer of HIV, Luc Montagnier, to state that he does not think HIV can cause AIDS without other unidentified cofactors (Balter, 1991).

did you know that the lack of knowledge about HIV that family practice doctors have could kill a patient?

This is the perfect example of a myth. Here's a guy who knows nothing about HIV, does not treat HIV positive patients and is theorizing. And there's that silly group that endorses the musings of ignorant doctors!!!!!!! WHo cares if HIv causes AIDS. WHo cares??? The fact is that HIV is a life threatening illness and there are medications that have dramatically transformed people's lives by allowing them to live very long lives if they take these meds. That's the fact!!!!!!!
There used to be AIDS floors in all the major hospitals of the U.S. back in the late 1980s and up till 1997 or so. There are no AIDS floors anymore cause the medications are really helping people stay out of the hospital!!!! That's the fact. Everything else is just noise.

HIV-science began just as cold fusion, with a discovery announced at a press conference by scientists and public officials eager for glory and funding. The difference was that there was no follow-up investigation to discern whether the discovery of "the virus that causes AIDS" was genuine. In retrospect, it is clear that no proof that HIV is the cause of AIDS was presented either at Dr. Robert Gallo's April, 1984, press conference, or in the four papers his team published a month later in Science.
