Beware of Hoaxes Involving Viruses

Has there ever really been a disease called AIDS? There definitely is a syndrome – a group of 30 or more diseases lumped together – named as such, supposedly satisfying the existing hypothesis of acquired immune deficiency as a result of HIV.

“…we propose that AIDS is a collection of chemical epidemics, caused by recreational drugs, anti-HIV drugs, and malnutrition. According to this hypothesis AIDS is not contagious, not immuno-genic, not treatable by vaccines or antiviral drugs, and HIV is just a passenger virus.” (PETER DUESBERG et al., 2003)

All of the diseases included in the syndrome (AIDS) existed before anybody had ever heard of a virus named HIV. They are associated with a number of powerful stressors: malnutrition and poor hygiene; recreational and pharmaceutical drugs; ionizing radiation; polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs); and a number of other environmental, medical and dietary poisons.

Relationships have been shown to exist between the development, progression and severity of ‘AIDS symptoms’, and a number of biological indicators and promoters of stress, inflammation, and disease. These include rising levels of nitric oxide, endotoxin (LPS) and breakdown products of the PUFAs, as well as low cholesterol, hypothyroidism, blood sugar dysregulation, and hypo-metabolism.

“…the relative percentage of polyunsaturated fatty acids was…100% greater than normal…Serum cortisol levels were… 60% above normal in AIDS-I patients.” (Christeff N, et al., 1988)

“…unchecked continuous passage of immunostimulatory microbial molecules such as LPS from the intestinal lumen to the systemic circulation is able to sustain a substantial activation of innate and adaptive immunity, leading to the paradigm that microbial translocation is a crucial determinant of systemic immune activation in HIV/AIDS.” (Marchetti G, et al., 2013)

“Proinflammatory molecules such as tumor necrosis factor alpha and eicosanoids are elevated in the central nervous system of patients with HIV-1-related dementia…NO [Nitric Oxide] formation may contribute to the severe cognitive dysfunction associated with HIV-1 infection.” (Adamson DC, et al., 1996)

To add insult to injury, a large number of highly qualified people in a wide range of medical and scientific fields have expressed the view that there is insufficient evidence to prove the theory that HIV (some say the virus doesn’t exist) causes the diseases thrown in under the AIDS banner. In some parts of the world, almost any symptom can be diagnosed as AIDS, even without an HIV result.

It wouldn’t be surprising if you found this to be shocking. Whether or not you agree with their findings, the most important job of PhD’s, Nobel laureates, researchers, doctors, scientists, or even professors, should be that of carefully and honestly questioning the validity of existing (as well as new) theories, no matter the degree of consensus in either direction.

Often the voice of alternative scientific hypotheses, research and experimentation, is disregarded (sometimes even ridiculed) and suppressed for decades, perhaps until it can no longer be ignored that there is a valid counter-argument, that is unlikely to go away.

“…elevated LPS [bacterial endotoxin] levels were…associated with significantly increased NHL [non-Hodgkin lymphoma] risk…supports an etiologic role for gut microbial translocation in lymphomagenesis among HIV-infected individuals.” (Marks MA et al., 2013)

“We evaluated 80 patients with AIDS…for the frequency of hypothalamic-pituitary or thyroid gland failure and altered serum thyroid hormone levels…Of these patients, 60% had low free triiodothyronine (T3) index values…Serum total T3 levels best predicted the outcome of the hospital stay…” (Tang WW, 1989)

Many have suffered and died from the AIDS related diseases. The question is what relationship if any, do these 30 or so diseases have with each other, how should they be treated, and how can they be prevented?

“IBD [inflammatory bowel disease] serological markers were detected in approximately 65% of AIDS patients with evidence of microbial translocation. An antibody pattern consistent with IBD was detected in 46%; of these, 75% had a CD [Crohn’s disease]-like pattern…” (Kamat A, et al., 2010)

“Thyroid dysfunction is more common in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) patients…Of the 178 patients, 59 (33.1%) had thyroid dysfunction…The mean CD4 cell count was significantly lower in patients with hypothyroidism than in the other patients…” (Shujing Ji, et al., 2016)

“HIV infection shares numerous similarities with aging in the general population, among them, ‘inflamm-aging’ and immune senescence that is driven by chronic immune system activation. Gut microbial translocation is associated with chronic immune system activation and likely contributes to systemic inflammation…” (Daniel E Nixon, 2010)

If there is not sufficient evidence to show that AIDS diseases and symptoms are caused by HIV, it should be recognized, in order to make funding available for other avenues of research, and to open up the possibility for informed choice regarding treatment options.

Even based upon an assumption, that AIDS is the result of HIV infection, it does not reduce the significance of information, regarding common metabolic abnormalities associated with metabolic dysfunction and immunodeficiency in general.

“…newly published studies provide evidence of the growing interest and concern about body shape changes and metabolic complications seen in HIV infection…In this unfolding story, peripheral fat atrophy, central fat accumulation, dyslipidemia, and glucose disregulation characterize the more commonly recognized syndromes.” (Briggs JM and Drabek CA, 2001)

“AIDS-related dementia complex is the most severe form of cognitive dysfunction in a patient infected with human immunodeficiency virus. The use of FDG PET/CT to diagnose…shows various specific metabolic patterns from striatal hypermetabolism in early asymptomatic stage to global hypometabolism in advanced stages…” (Chandra P, et al., 2016)

“Higher cumulative average stressful life events and lower cumulative average social support predicted faster progression to…AIDS…Higher anger scores and CD8 T cells were associated with faster progression to AIDS, and depressive symptoms were associated with faster development of an AIDS clinical condition. Higher levels of serum cortisol predicted all three measures of disease progression.” (Lesserman J, et al., 2002)

There are many safe, effective and cheap approaches to improvement of overall metabolism and health, which have been shown to improve immune function and protect against infection and disease progression.

Below are a number of quotes which may be enlightening.

Is it possible that this is only the tip of the iceberg, and HIV may turn out to be the Titanic?


Kary Mullis, PhD, Biochemist, 1993 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, for the invention of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique.

“People keep asking me, ‘You mean you don’t believe that HIV causes AIDS?’ And I say, ‘Whether I believe it or not is irrelevant! I have no scientific evidence for it.’…It’s not what somebody believes, it’s experimental proof that counts. And those guys don’t have that.”

“…A segment of our society was experimenting with their lifestyle…They got sick. Another segment of our…society, call them doctor/scientist refugees from the failed War on Cancer, or just call them professional jackals, discovered that it did work. It worked for them. They are still making payments on their new BMWs out of your pocket.”

Professor Peter Deusberg, Professor of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley.

“HIV is just a latent, and perfectly harmless, retrovirus that most but not all AIDS patients happen to carry. To say that HIV is the cause of AIDS is to cast aside everything we know about retroviruses…The HIV theory is inconsistent, paradoxical, and absurd…”

“AIDS is a collection or a syndrome of 25 old diseases, conventional diseases – not one of them is new. They’ve all been known for centuries, at least for decades – with the provision that you have to find antibodies to HIV…When they are found then those who believe in the virus as a cause of AIDS say those 25 diseases – any one of them or combination of them – were caused by the virus. For example, if you have tuberculosis and you find HIV, they say HIV has done it.”

“Many Americans use amphetamines, diet drugs, cocaine and designer party drugs. When you do this for years, you start getting sick. You go to the doctor, who says the first thing you need is an HIV test. You test positive because HIV tests cross-react with antibodies produced by drug use. The doctor puts you on AZT, a DNA chain terminator, which, in high doses, will finish you off in six months. I’m not talking about a one-time use of a party drug. We’re designed to consume a lot of junk, but we’re not designed to tolerate a gram of cocaine, nitrite inhalants or heroin per day, and we’re even less capable of handling AZT.”

Ray Peat PhD. in Biology.

“It has been over ten years since I wrote about “AIDS”…and the official doctrine that it is caused by the “HIV” virus still hasn’t been supported by anything that resembles real science. Duesberg’s arguments have never been answered (except by bureaucratic thuggery)…many things…suppress immunity, and…have become increasingly prevalent in our environment–unsaturated vegetable oils, ferrous iron and carrageenan in our foods, lead in air, food, and water, exposure to medical, military, and industrial ionizing radiation, vaccinations, pesticides, chlorinated hydrocarbons, nitric oxide (smog and medications) and oral contraceptives and environmental estrogens, in particular.”

Eleni Papadopulos-Eleopulos, Phd, Professor, Nuclear Physicist, Department of Medical Engineering and Physics, Royal Perth Hospital, Australia.

“As far as we are concerned, if one goes through all of the HIV literature which exists to date I think one would find it bold and incredible to still believe that there is proof for the existence of HIV.”

“…a decrease in T4 cells is neither necessary nor sufficient for disease to develop. This finding totally contradicts the HIV theory of AIDS…and by itself is sufficient for one to question the HIV theory.”

Neville Hodgkinson​, Former Medical/Science Correspondent, Sunday Times, London.

“A kind of collective insanity over HIV and AIDS has gripped leaders of the scientific and medical professions. They…are working as propagandists, trying desperately to keep alive a failed theory…there was never really evidence of a new virus being isolated in the way that I’ve been taught is needed.. people were testing positive in millions who had nothing to do with any new disease agent…that was the great tragedy of this test. ” 

Professor Gordon Stewart, Emeritus Professor of Public Health, University of Glasgow.

“There is no specific etiologic agent of AIDS. The disease arises as a result of a cumulative process following a period of exposure to multiple environmental factors…” 

“Colleagues and I attempting to publish have met an unholy alliance intent on rejecting any papers that offer serious criticisms of the orthodoxy. The mainstream journals and media…close ranks like regimented clams…There are…vested interests involved; many bodies and individuals receive high rewards for their work within orthodox AIDS science. Underlying much of this, the pharmaceutical companies have their own obvious agenda.”

Joan Shenton, Director – Meditel Productions’ Dispatches – “AIDS and Africa”.

“What I discovered in Africa was that the infrastructure – social and medical – is non existent…the services have disappeared…Malaria control, TB control…the pathogenic assault, the toxic assault of filthy water, Malaria eleven times before you are seven years old, diarrhea seven times before you are one year old, makes your immune system very very at risk and depressed, and if you test people with a severely challenged immune system it is likely…that you will show antibodies that come up from the stress, and these antibodies are being called specific to HIV…I don’t believe that…I believe they are….antibodies that are developed as a result of your body’s immune stress position.”

Harry Rubin, Professor of Molecular Biology, UC Berkeley.

“…the Army’s leading AIDS specialist…told me…he had seen AIDS cases with Kaposi’s sarcoma in recruits…He told me that some of these cases were AIDS. And I asked him if they differed clinically from the other…cases [which were not AIDS]. He said no, they didn’t differ clinically at all, but they had antibodies to HIV. So I realized then I was dealing with a self-fulfilling prophecy. If there are HIV antibodies when you have Kaposi’s, then it’s AIDS, and if no antibodies when it’s Kaposi’s, then it’s not AIDS, just Kaposi’s. No wonder there’s such a strong association between the virus and AIDS…”

“The minute someone suggests that the orthodoxy might be wrong, the establishment starts to call him crazy or a quack. One week you’re a great scientist; the next week, you’re a jerk. Science has become the new church of America and is closing off all room for creative, productive dissent.”

Dr. Charles Thomas, PhD, former Professor of Biochemistry, Harvard and Johns Hopkins Universities.

“I think that Duesberg and Root-Bernstein have it right [about what causes AIDS]. Any thing or process that destroys the individual’s ability to mount an immune response…This could be the use of…cocaine, heroin, amyl nitrite (poppers), amphetamines…malnutrition and lack of essential vitamins…being the recipient of whole blood or blood products…repeated and multiple infections… [all] are immunosuppressive.”

“The HIV-causes-AIDS dogma is the grandest fraud that has ever been perpetrated on young men and women of the Western world. AIDS is a cruel deception that is maintained because so many people are making money from it. Take away this money and the entire system of mythology will collapse.”

Dr. Roberto Giraldo, MD, Former Chairman of the Department of Microbiology and Parasitology, University of Antioquia, Medellin, Colombia.

“The transmission of AIDS from person to person is a myth. The homosexual transmission of AIDS in Western countries, as well as the heterosexual transmission of AIDS in Africa and in other underdeveloped countries, is an assumption without any scientific validation.”

Dr David Rasnick Phd., Chemist, Molecular Biology.

“The HIV hypothesis of AIDS is the biggest scientific, medical blunder of the 20th Century. The evidence is overwhelming that AIDS is not contagious, sexually transmitted, or caused by HIV. The physicians who know or suspect the truth are embarrassed or afraid to admit that the HIV tests are absurd and should be outlawed, and that the anti-HIV drugs are injuring and killing people.” 

“The best evidence against the HIV hypothesis is that there is no evidence for it. In the vast scientific medical literature – over 100,000 journals published so far…we cannot find anywhere…the evidence that AIDS is a contagious disease, or that it’s even sexually transmitted…Nobody can find free infectious HIV virus in a human being. That is why they have to resort to looking for antibodies to HIV in a person. That is one of the biggest flaws in the HIV hypothesis….antibodies…are a sign of immunity…with AIDS we have antibodies as a predictor or an indicator of AIDS and future death.”

“Fifty percent of Africans have no sewage systems. Their drinking water mixes with animal and human waste. They have constant TB and malaria infections, the symptoms of which are diarrhea and weight loss, the very same criteria UNAIDS and the World Health Organization use to diagnose AIDS in Africa. These people need clean drinking water and treated mosquito nets, not condoms and lectures and deadly pharmaceuticals forced on pregnant mothers.” 

Richard Kostelanetz, MA. Fulbright Scholar.

“…people don’t die of AIDS per se but of other diseases attacking individuals made vulnerable by immune deficiencies whose principal cause, universally, is not HIV but nothing more mysterious than poor living conditions.”

Dr. Henk Loman, PhD, Professor of Biophysical Chemistry at the Free University in Amsterdam.

“There are many people with AIDS but without HIV, and a great many people with HIV but without AIDS. These two facts mean that HIV=AIDS is much too simple. Plausible, alternative, testable causes of impairment of the immune system which may ultimately lead to AIDS should become part of regular AIDS research.”

Dr. James Hudson, PhD, Professor of Pathology and Medicine, University of British Columbia, Canada.

“I do not believe there is an AIDS epidemic in Africa or Asia. People there are still dying from the combined effects of chronic infectious diseases plus malnutrition, poverty, and other factors, just as they always have.”

Dr. Alfred Hassig, MD, Professor in Immunology, University of Bern, former Director Swiss Red Cross blood banks. Advisor to WHO.

“AZT (anti-viral AIDS medicine) has, in countless cases, brought about the inevitable and slow asphyxiation of the patient’s body cells, and death by poisoning. The doctors wrongly diagnose the fatal consequences of AZT medication as AIDS following a prior HIV infection. Treatment with AZT and allied toxic substances may be equivalent to joining a suicide squad with a time fuse.”

Dr. Hiram Caton, PhD, Ethicist, Head of the School of Applied Ethics at Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia.

“Be informed. Withdraw your consent from the most malignant fraud ever perpetrated in the name of medicine. Be aware that the primary truth in the ‘AIDS war’ is that powerful agencies have declared war on YOU and your loved ones, regardless of your HIV status. Be aware that ‘AIDS science’ is 90% mindless repetition and 10% deeply inconsistent findings of no clinical value.”

Gerald H. Pollack, PhD. Professor of Bioengineering, University of Washington, Seattle.

“Mainstream virologists have assumed the power of the purse, and their self-interests (sometimes financial), propel them to suppress challenges. This is not an unusual story: challenges to mainstream views are consistently suppressed by mainstream scientists who have a stake in maintaining the status quo.”

Dr. Donald W. Miller Jr., MD (Harvard, 1965), BMS (Dartmouth, 1963), Professor of Surgery, University of Washington School of Medicine.

“When Duesberg’s work on HIV/AIDS…is finally recognized and accepted, it will cause a revolution in science. Over the last 50 years government-sponsored and industry-sponsored research programs have come to dominate scientific research. A totalitarian system now exists where only scientists that adhere to the prevailing orthodoxy can receive funds to conduct research. Not only will the government not fund studies on alternative hypotheses for AIDS and cancer, but this stricture applies to other areas of inquiry.”

Dr. Mohammad Ali Al-Bayati, PhD, Toxicologist and Pathologist, California.

“…the results of the studies described above clearly show that the reductions in CD4+ T cell counts in homosexual patients have resulted from their treatment with glucocorticoid and not as the result of their HIV-infection. These studies provided clinical proof that HIV is a harmless virus and the HIV tests are worthless.”

Dr. Otto Raabe, PhD, Professor and Director, Institute of Toxicology and Environmental Health, University of California, Davis.

“The HIV hypothesis, a staunchly defended thesis among its proponents, assumes that AIDS is caused by an infectious retrovirus. The declaration that the chosen virus was indeed the cause of AIDS was accompanied by the naming of this virus as the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Given this name, the HIV hypothesis suddenly became a self-fulfilling proposition and a classical example of the logical fallacy of affirming the consequent.”

Rebecca Veronica Culshaw, PhD. Assistant Professor of Mathematics, University of Texas at Tyler. Advisor, Journal of Biological Systems.

“My work as a mathematical biologist has been built in large part on the paradigm that HIV causes AIDS, and I have since come to realize that there is good evidence that the entire basis for this theory is wrong. AIDS, it seems, is not a disease so much as a sociopolitical construct that few people understand and even fewer question…”

“For over twenty years, the general public has been greatly misled and ill-informed. As someone who has been raised by parents who taught me from a young age never to believe anything just because ‘everyone else accepts it to be true,’ I can no longer just sit by and do nothing, thereby contributing to this craziness.”

Dan Fendel, B.A. (summa cum laude) Harvard University, PhD, Yale; Professor of Mathematics, San Francisco State University.

“Every mathematician knows that by changing the definition of something, you can change the entire truth about that thing. Rebecca Culshaw describes how the HIV = AIDS ‘orthodoxists’ have abused this idea. As in a shell game, they keep moving the definitions around, so that anything can be true and everyone will be confused. The abuse of science that has been documented here is itself very frightening.”

Dr. Robert Root-Bernstein, PhD, Immunologist, Professor of Physiology, Michigan State University.

“What, then, is the role of HIV? The only way to explain these [HIV-free AIDS] cases is that the people have other high-risk factors associated with AIDS, such as malnutrition, multiple infections…and drug use…[These factors can] cause the same immune suppression…that everyone says HIV causes.”

Dr. Donald Abrams, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco; Director of AIDS Program, San Francisco General Hospital.

“In the past, a person might have HIV antibodies and tuberculosis; nowadays, this counts as HIV/AIDS, as do dozens of other combinations of signs and symptoms. These changing criteria result in higher numbers of people being diagnosed with AIDS with each change in the criteria, creating an epidemic of diagnostic ‘grade inflation.’”

John Hardie, BDS, MSc, PhD, FRCDC. Clinical Director, Dental Services, DownLisburn Trust, County Antrim. Northern Ireland.

“In [sub-Saharan Africa]…figures on HIV/AIDS are based on inappropriate extrapolations from hospitalized patients and clients of STD clinics. The second circumstance is that most of the testing in Africa is unsupervised…The third is that the World Health Organization’s clinical case definition for AIDS in Africa permits the diagnosis to be made based on the presence of weight loss, chronic diarrhea, prolonged fever and persistent cough.”

“…the HIV test does not confirm the presence of HIV….it confirms the existence of markers that may (or may not) be surrogate identifiers for the virus… Until HIV is isolated and purified from infected cases, it is impossible to determine if the antibody reactions to it are truly specific or examples of cross-reactivity….the value of HIV tests must be questioned no matter how often they are performed on a single sample.” 

Dr. B.L. Meel, MD, Head, Department of Forensic Medicine, University of Transkei, South Africa.

“There are several risks associated with HIV/AIDS, but the most important immediate risk, soon after an individual becomes aware of his/her HIV status, is committing suicide. This is as a result of sudden unexpected, unprepared disclosure of HIV test result, leading to mental breakdown, i.e., severe acute depression.”

Harvey Bialy, PhD. Founding and scientific editor, Nature Biotechnology (1983-1996). Resident Scholar, Institute of Biotechnology/Autonomous National University of Mexico (1996-2006)

“HIV is an ordinary retrovirus. There is nothing about this virus that is unique. Everything that is discovered about HIV has an analogue in other retroviruses that don’t cause AIDS. HIV only contains a very small piece of genetic information. There’s no way it can do all these elaborate things they say it does.”

“HIV/AIDS [is] the biggest medical mistake and fraud of the past 500 years.”

Dr. Claus Koehnlein, MD, AIDS and Internal Medicine specialist, Kiel, Germany.

“You are pointing to a very important problem, concerning the validity of HIV tests. It’s even more complicated — there is crossreactivity between HIV-1 and antibodies found in leprosy and tuberculosis bacterias. So you will not know whether a patient is HIV-positive because he has tuberculosis or he has tuberculosis because he is HIV-positive. Treat tuberculosis and don’t care about HIV. I have done this for many years and nobody died.”

“In view of these major uncertainties…priorities should be drastically revised. Suspending all HIV sero-testing, and suspending administration of anti-retroviral toxic medications should make budgets available to combat malnutrition, extend drinking water distribution, and improve hygiene and sanitation for the African people.”

”Science is the search for truth” said David Bohm, “whether we like it [the truth] or not. From my readings, discussions with knowledgeable scientists close to the story, I simply conclude, as does Kary Mullis, the Nobel Laureate who wrote a foreword to Duesberg’s classic work, that there is no evidence that ‘HIV causes AIDS’.”

David R. Schryer, PhD. Research chemist. Former researcher at NASA’s Langley Research Center.

“Contrary to popular belief, Peter Duesberg is not a quack. In fact, he is a widely acknowledged expert on retroviruses such as HIV. His credentials are impeccable: he is a professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of California, Berkeley, and a member of the prestigious National Academy of Sciences. Nevertheless, Dusberg is regarded by the uninformed as a quack because he has dared to scientifically investigate whether the retrovirus HIV actually causes the complex of diseases known as AIDS…and has had the courage to report that research shows the answer is that HIV is not the cause of AIDS.” –

Dr. Richard Strohman, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley.

“It is not too late. “AIDS” would quickly dissolve into its geographically, and demographically distinct disease manifestations; the real crooks would retire with their ill-gotten gains; the mediocre to incompetent will, as Dizzy Gillespie put it, “like old Cadillacs, ‘jus be faded away by the repo company”, and the bright, basically honest guys and gals, who are trying their best in the present fascist atmosphere, can have a chance to do what they really want, namely help to alleviate suffering instead of being, unwilling but not unwitting, accomplices to its worldwide infliction.”

Dr. Bernard Forscher, PhD, former editor of the US Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

“The HIV hypothesis ranks with the ‘bad air’ theory for malaria and the ‘bacterial infection’ theory of beriberi and pellagra [caused by nutritional deficiencies]. It is a hoax that became a scam.”

“Unfortunately, an ‘AIDS establishment’ seems to have formed that intends to discourage challenges to the dogma on one side and often insists on following discredited ideas on the other.”

Dr. Juan Jose Flores, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine, La Universidad Veracruzana, Mexico.

“The causes of AIDS are not viral. I have witnessed the fatal effects that the anti-viral drugs have on the immune system. I treated patients diagnosed with HIV who were very poor. Their inability to afford the drugs precluded me from giving them AZT which is very expensive. As time went by, I began to see that the rich HIV positive patients died, while the poor ones lived and continue to do so.”

Dr. Randall R. ‘Rush’ Wayne, MA, Molecular Biology, Harvard University, PhD, Biochemistry, University of California.

“While first learning about the AIDS controversy, I read whatever I could on both sides. I have not found an instance, when both sides have been able to state their complete case, where the mainstream AIDS view has held up. On the contrary, much of the mainstream view seems to be based on bad research and fallacious reasoning.”

“The medical profession and scientific establishment have terrorized too many people with these worthless [Hiv] tests.”

Dr. Heinz Ludwig Sänger, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Molecular Biology and Virology.

“HIV cannot be responsible for AIDS. After three years of intensive critical studies of the relevant scientific literature, as an experienced virologist and molecular biologist I came to the following surprising conclusion — there is actually no single scientifically really convincing evidence for the existence of HIV. Not even once has such a retrovirus been isolated and purified by the methods of classical virology.”

Dr. Stefan Lanka, Virologist, PhD, University of Koblenz

“No AIDS test could ever work, because HIV has never been isolated nor even shown to exist. This is the crux of the problem facing all HIV tests. The inability to isolate a viral entity, and to characterize its constituent proteins unambiguously means that the evidence for the existence of HIV using antibodies is just arguing in a circle. Antibodies that are detected, are due to other causes. It is consequently quite illogical to claim that a positive test results from prior contact with the virus.”

Dr. Rodney Richards, PhD, Biochemist.

“In fact there is no test for HIV. It’s just an illusion…early on when we were working in collaboration with Abbott Laboratories, it was clear that there was no gold standard for HIV—no direct isolation of the virus. Nobody has ever demonstrated that HIV is present when any combination, or any one, of these tests comes up positive. None of these tests can be validated, ever. Period. Because we don’t have a way to isolate and culture HIV to prove its existence.” –

Kevin Hronek, RN, BSN.

“Where is the Gold Standard in testing? Why are there soooooo many infections that cause false positives and yet with these positive results we recommend putting healthy people on deadly drugs which cause the very symptoms of AIDS they didn’t have before.”

Dr. John Heilbron, PhD, Professor of History and History of Science and former Vice Chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley.

“The federal medical research establishment has laid it down that the HIV virus is the cause of AIDS. It seems virtually impossible, on Duesberg’s evidence, for HIV to do any such thing. Nevertheless, the definition of AIDS is manipulated so that HIV antibodies are always found in people diagnosed to have it.”

Dr. Vladimir Koliadin, PhD, Senior Research Scientist, State Aerospace University, Kharkov, Ukraine.

“Even if to prove rigorously that HIV exists as an exogenous transmissible agent (this has never been done) and that HIV-seropositivity is caused by HIV-infection, it still cannot prove that HIV is the cause of AIDS.”

Dr. Rudolf Werner, PhD, Professor of Biochemistry, University of Miami School of Medicine.

“The HIV-AIDS hypothesis remains just that — a hypothesis. Many experts’ predictions turned out to be false. For example, contrary to the prediction that AIDS would rapidly spread into the heterosexual population, the disease in the United States is still restricted to 85 percent males. Yet HIV positives are found with equal frequency in healthy male and female Army recruits. This discrepancy doesn’t support the hypothesis that AIDS is caused by HIV.”

Devananda Tandavan, MD, Nuclear Physician and Hospital Staff President, Chicago, Illinois.

“Robert Koch, a famous German bacteriologist, formulated a system of four postulates for establishing causation of disease. These postulates have not been met in the case of AIDS…there is no proof that HIV causes AIDS, nor in fact, that it causes any disease..The so-called AIDS epidemic in Africa has over 70% of the patients with HIV negative blood…The cause of their epidemics can be more plausibly pinpointed as starvation and other compromises to their immune systems.”

Dr. Charles L. Geshekter, PhD, three-time Fulbright scholar. Professor of African History, California State University, Chico. Former chair of the History of Science, Pacific Division, of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences.

“The scientific data do not support the view that what is being called AIDS in Africa has a viral cause. The World Health Organization defines an AIDS case in Africa as a combination of fever, persistent cough, diarrhea and a 10-percent loss of body weight in two months. No HIV test is needed. It is impossible to distinguish these common symptoms — all of which I’ve had while working in Somalia — from those of malaria, tuberculosis or the indigenous diseases of impoverished lands…in practice, many traditional African diseases can be and are reclassified as AIDS. Since 1994, tuberculosis itself has been considered an AIDS-indicator disease in Africa. Dressed up as HIV/AIDS, a variety of old sicknesses have been reclassified.”

Dr. George L. Gabor Miklos, PhD, Formerly with University of California, University of Washington, University of Edinburgh, the Neurosciences Institute, The SCRIPPS Research Institute and the Australian National University.

“The scientific data do not support the hypothesis that the HIV virus causes AIDS. If you have Kaposi sarcoma and you have antibodies to the HIV virus, the CDC says you have AIDS…by definition! If you are diagnosed with Kaposi sarcoma and you don’t have antibodies to HIV, then you don’t have AIDS…you have Kaposi sarcoma!…go figure!”

“The African people have little resistance to infectious diseases because they’re poor, and they don’t get enough to eat…Immunodeficiency can be caused by many things, and I’m very sure ‘HIV’ is not one of them.”

Dr. Leo Rebello, ND, PhD (UK), DSc, FFHom, MBA (M’Asia).

“AIDS is the greatest myth of our times. In spite of voluminous evidence which shows that HIV is not the cause of AIDS, the myth is deliberately kept going so that industries keep prospering…the principles of healing are very simple: (a) the body heals itself (b) there is an inner environment (c) treatment should not be worse than the disease.”

“A scientific hypothesis riddled with holes is being kept alive by vested interests reaping huge profits from drugs and vaccines that are worse than useless, while safe and effective approaches based on nutritional, herbal, and other low-cost, easily available interventions are being suppressed and ignored.”

Dr. Henry Bauer, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Chemistry & Science Studies and Dean Emeritus of Arts & Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University.

“One current unorthodoxy almost certain to be vindicated is that HIV is not the cause of AIDS…the mainstream dogma that HIV is the cause may be subjecting tens or hundreds of thousands to inappropriate, indeed deadly so-called ‘treatment’ that has brought several drug companies unprecedented profits.”

Joel Kauffman, PhD in Organic Chemistry, MIT. Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, University of the Sciences in Philadelphia.

“In my opinion, if you test positive for HIV, relax, and refuse any treatment if you have no symptoms. If you have had “unprotected sex” at any time, relax, because transmission of whatever the test responds to is under 1/1000. Many people, babies especially, spontaneously become HIV negative. Of course, refuse to have the test if at all possible, and where you are forced to have the test, be ready to sign on to any class-action lawsuit for invasion of privacy, since transmission rates are so low, negating the excuse for invading privacy in the first place.”

Dr. Peter Phillips, PhD, Professor of Sociology at Soma University in California.

“The media in this country has totally ignored Dr. Duesberg’s point of view that HIV may not be the actual cause of AIDS. Here we have a renowned virologist saying something now for ten years with a number of other scientists backing up that position, and he’s not being given attention by the media. He has literally been blackballed from any public discussion in the open media marketplace of ideas in regards to this issue.”

Dr. Alicia Damiano, PhD, Molecular Biology, Department of Physiology, School of Medicine, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

“I know the toxicity of the drugs used like AZT. I don’t understand why these drugs producing immunodeficiency are used to combat a virus that produces the same pathology. In the UK, the Western Blot test is forbidden since 1992, why is it the diagnostic test in my country? I don’t know that HIV causes AIDS, but I know that this disease is the best economic business together with the cancer therapies.”

Dr. Earl Aagaard, PhD, Professor of Biology, Pacific Union College, Angwin, California.

“I’m a college Biology professor, and the official story has never stood up to careful scrutiny, or even to the test of common sense. People are dying, money is being wasted, and the only way to arrive at the truth is to examine every facet of this story without preconceptions.”

Toby Gettins, Theoretical Physicist, Birmingham, UK. Former researcher, High Temperature Superconductivity, University of Exeter.

“There is NO SUCH THING as the HIV virus. If there was, don’t you think that the multi-billion dollar AIDS industry would have produced a sample of it by now? Something that actually replicates in human tissue? But hey, prove me wrong: Cite the scientific papers showing isolation and replication of the virus.”

Dr. M. Wainwright, Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, University of Sheffield, UK.

“Why in your Editorial on AIDS do you dismiss out of hand all the counter evidence that HIV causes AIDS? The minority of dissenters are not stupid, but bona fide scientists, some of whom are retrovirus experts. You should listen to their viewpoint instead of arrogantly assuming that they are wrong. History may yet make fools of you!”

Dr. John Yiamouyiannis, PhD, Biochemist.

“I wrote a book with Peter Duesberg — ‘AIDS: The Good News is that HIV Doesn’t Cause It; The Bad News is that Recreational Drugs and Medical Treatments Like AZT Do.’ The way they determine that a person is HIV-positive is — they don’t look for HIV virus, they look for HIV antibodies. If they find HIV antibodies, they say, ‘This person is going to get AIDS or has AIDS.’ Just based on the antibodies. Now they want to develop a vaccine for AIDS, so they can give it to the entire population, so everybody will be antibody positive, so everybody will ‘have’ AIDS. It is so absolutely absurd.”

    WOW! I had never heard this before. Thank you!!! I will forward this on to all friends and family. I don’t nor know of anybody with HIV/AIDS but it fills out the further bigger picture of the con job the establishment is doing on many many things especially medical. Again this was eye opening!
