Hope for a Cure?

Thursday, June 02, 2011

30 years after the first case was diagnosed, Tina Rosenberg, writer for New York Magazine, and Jeffrey Laurence, director of the Laboratory for AIDS Virus Research at Weill Cornell Medical College and a senior scientific consultant for AMFAR, talk about the case of a man "cured" of AIDS and the state of AIDS research.

ARV drugs do not cure people of the HIV virus or AIDS, they only make people sick. Most people do not realize that ARV drugs actually feed the HIV virus so that the virus doesn’t go into full blown AIDS and consume the entire body. Thus, ARV drugs keep one alive but at the expense of immense pain and suffering, feeding the virus their happiness and energy .Listen to the audios to see how Aids is being cured without drugs :

There is a major AIDS activist push for a cure. The AIDS Policy Project's Cure Campaign is leading the charge:

There is nothing new about people curing themselves of AIDS. In the late 80s, Peter Duesberg was the first (and not the last) to publish cases in which hundreds of confirmed asymptomatic HIV+ cases seroconverted. Years later, he and other other scientists published on cases with full blown AIDS surviving past 10 years. Then 20.

Why didn't Brian Lehrer ever invite Duesberg or the hundreds of dissident scientists from the Group for the Scientific Reappraisal of the HIV-AIDS on his show to discuss these cases? It's president, Roberto Giraldo MD is a friend of mine and here in Queens. The Perth Group of HIV/AIDS dissidents was formed in 1981. Why havent any of them been invited?

Because Brian is the guardian of "Medical Truth". Medical Truth is anything that the medical establishment declares is orthodox. Anything else is heresy and cannot be discussed.

People who were diagnosed with AIDS, yet survived past 10 years, forced the purveyers of Medical Truth to amend the survival prognosis to 15 years. Then 20 years. Then 25. Such evidence is a hallmark of an invalid theory----that AIDS is infectious and fatal. The only reason these researchers are on his show today is because someone needs to apply spin to a theory that has long been discredited on its merits, if not in the MSM and in Brian's world.

Can you dive deeper into the science that seeks to replicate the action of the transplant that is believed to have cured the German man? Or link to something that can explain it? Thanks.

Speaking as a virologist and former worker in biotechnology to even suggest the notion that drug companies avoid creating a cure for AIDS for reasons of profit is not only wildly cynical and immoral but bespeaks of the shoddiest of kind of journalism reserved for the likes of FOX News. Shame on you, Brian.

Do you think it is possible that HIV will eventually mutate its way around the potential cure?

Can you link to the original published paper?

Does this mean he tests negative for HIV?

A recent article in the New York Times recently suggested that AIDS had been transformed from a death sentence to a chronic disease. Where can it go from here?
