Pharma myths about AIDS/HIV
Propaganda from pharma corporations like Glaxo-Wellcome perpetuate the
AIDS is a virus myth while suppressing important info about poverty,
chemical addictions and malnutritional as cause of immune suppresion..
Research into the pharmaceutical corporation's AIDS story is resulting in
findings that death from AIDS is not from the virus HIV, instead a
combination of factors such as poverty, malnutrition, chemical addictions
and other immune suppressing agents..
Here are some points brought up by Christine Maggiore in "What if
everything you knew about AIDS was wrong?"
If HIV is the virus responsible for AIDS, then why is viral load in HIV +
people with compromised health in low numbers?
Viral load data from PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests assumes
"fragments of genetic material PCR finds corresponds to viral load
counts". PCR cannot test for viral load directly..
HIV is a retrovirus and non-cytotoxic (non cell killing), yet is claimed
to be responsible for killing T cells, the lymphocytes responsible for
maintaining a functional immune system..
Glaxo-Wellcome's pharma****tail AZT is a thirty year old chemotherapy drug
that was used unsuccessfully against cancer. Chemotherapy is cytotoxic,
and after initially beginning to take AZT, HIV + people show a short term
rise in T cells. However, this short term rise in T cells can be
attributed to AZT destroying the bone marrow (source of T cells). When AZT
attacks the bone marrow, the blood system responds to this destruction by
producing more T cells. After long term use of AZT, the bone marrow cannot
produce T cells and after the emergency short term rise in T cell count,
there is a long term and permanent decline in T cells, usually attributed
to "AIDS". If people discovered that the AZT was the actual cause of T
cell decline, how would they react?
AIDS in Africa
GW Bush and his pet pharma corporation Eli Lily tell people that AIDS in
Africa is a crisis that needs intervention, namely in the form of
pharmaceuticals to combat the HIV/AIDS virus..
Here is some other info on "AIDS in Africa"..
Four symptoms required for AIDS diagnosis;
weight loss (10% or consistent over 2 months)
These symptoms are often a result of malnutrition, tuberculosis,
unsanitary water and malaria, all problems resulting from poverty and
AIDS in *** men
Use of nitrites by *** men during the peak "SF AIDS epidemic" and and
ongoing combination of malnutrition, alcoholism, depression and other
factors, though very different from Africa, these also contribute to
immune suppression. The *** community may need to be open and honest about
the focus on materialism and excess drug use when dealing with homophobia
and community acceptance. Psychological factors when dealing with right
wing homophobia from family or former friends, stress of coming out and
immigration to the "*** mecca SF" without dealing with emotional baggage
from their point of origin. Being ostracized by family is a serious stress
that can impact health and well being, covering up with alcohol or drug
use only magnifies the problem..
Neither of the above situations will gain any profit for pharmaceutical
corporations if people just live healthier. happier lives and poverty is
alleviated. Naturopathy, homeopathy, detox and cleansing, ayurvedic
medicine are also other options for restoring the immune system to a

Pharma myths about AIDS/HIV
Those latter issues don't sell drugs.
AIDS is not a myth. Malnutrition does not cause AIDS. But it sure as
hell can accelerate progression. A multivitamin can significantly slow
HIV disease progression (not stop it, unfortunately).
