AIDS vaccine in the US. (www.newsmax.shtml) The Committtee to Protect Medical Freedom warned that the vaccine would infact put more people at risk of contracting the deadly disease. AIDS is not like polio or smallpox, which can occur randomly without any warning; the public already knows how to avoid this disease.For the fast several years an AIDS vaccine has been the key focus in AIDS research. While the government sees the vaccine as a termination to the disease, but a portion of the public along with many renowned scientists from around the world would argue against a vaccine. The United Nations and the US military have threatened to administer a mandatory vaccine to children at the age of 12 and all military employees. Reports predict a massive resistance to a mandatory
Coverage of ‘promising’ vaccines is extremely misleading, and those being tested so far appear harmful and dangerous. (newsmax.com) Even with the disparencies surrounding these vaccines, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases is sponsoring an HIV vaccine test on babies born to HIV-infected mothers. The program has admitted that a small percentage of their trial applicants have indeed become infected, but now have access to the best medical care available. The available data on such vaccines gives no basis for testing on humans. Scientists and Government officials have been debating on this issue for many years now. However, the divergence of AIDS and HIV has a long and tedious history full of twists and turns and dead end roads.
Little to nothing was known about AIDS when it first erupted in the late 1970s. When the epidemic finally reached noticeable proportions in the early 1980s, numerous hypotheses emerged. “Theories attempting to explain the origin of the disease ranged from the comic to the bizarre: a deadly germ escaped from a CIA laboratory: God sent the plague down to punish homosexuals and drug addicts: it came from outer space, riding on the tail of a comet.” (newdawnmagazine.com) Though some of the theories were outlandish, a few hold ample evidence. Among the theories dismissed and rejected by the government were those of covert human medical experimentation and primate viruses. The government ignored all the dangerous viral creations that were genetically altered for cancer research, vaccine research, and secret biological warfare. (newdawnmagazine.com) There are claims that the polio vaccine given to Africans in the late 1950s was prepared using chimp kidney cells that were contaminated with the ancestor virus of HIV.
In the 1960s several prestigious labs were found to be contaminated with primate viruses, including the National Cancer Institute and Fort Detrick. The hepatitis B vaccine, which was also developed in chimps in Liberia, was first administered to gays at the NY Blood Center. The lab also prides itself on releasing “rehabilitated” chimps back into their natural habitats in Southern Africa. All research files connecting the research has been secured and censored.
The CDC (Center for Disease Control) and the NIH (National Institute of Health) may have adopted the idea that AIDS was caused by a single infectious agent, HIV, too quickly. There are countless despondencies in this theory, which have been concealed from the public for almost two decades. The CDC and the NIH fail to recognize obvious facts that bloster their hold on HIV and AIDS. For example, AIDS includes 25 previously known diseases and two clinically and epidemiological very different epidemics, one in Africa, and the other in America and Europe. (virusmyth.net) Almost all American and European cases are males over the age of twenty, while in Africa AIDS affects both sexes equally. There is also a great deal of data documenting that the use of recreational and anti-HIV drugs were sufficient for HIV-positives and HIV-positives to develop the AIDS disease for Americans and Europeans. On the other hand, African AIDS appears to be a result o protein malnutrition, poor sanitation, and subsequent parasitic infections.
The virus hypotheisis also fails all conventional criteria for causation and many AIDS patients have diseases that do not depend on immunodeficiency, such as Kaposi’s sarcoma, lymphoma, and others. There is no common, active microbe in all AIDS patients and there is both negative and positive evidence that AIDS is not infectious. Over 100-fold different AIDS risks in different risk groups show that HIV is not sufficient for AIDS. (virusmyth.net)
One of the most influential questioners of the orthodox linkage between HIV and AIDS controversy is Peter Duesberg, a German, American scientist, professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of California, Berkley. He is the man at the centre of the controversy in South Africa and recognized for his research all around the world. Duesberg has been called the self-styled Galileo of the modern age. He calims he is willing to inject himself witht the virus to proove his heretical hypothosisi that it does not carry AIDS.
Duesberg belives that “HIV and AIDS are nothing but a gross, overblown and dangerously unisonous myth.” (virusmyth.net) To him, HIV is simply a harmless retrovirus and neither HIV nor AIDS are infectious. He sees the AIDS hysteria as a conspiracy between the medical establishments and drug companies who have special interest in the HIV hypothesis. He was also one of the forerunners to recognize the totally different characteristics between African AIDS and American and E uropoean AIDS. The national scientific bodies of the World have rejected Duesberg’s dissident theories and his findings have never been released to the public.
Perhaps the second person to lead the way in finding the missing pieces of the AIDS puzzle is John Lauriten, a Harvard-trained survey researcher, social scientist and gay activist. He had the expertise to notice that the CDC and the NIH were already “cooking” the AIDS statistics to conceal the role or recreational drugs in causing the syndrome.” (virusmyth.net) He found that the neither AIDS nor HIV held up the Koch’s postulates, which are the standard rules in microbiology used to determine whether a particular microbe causes a particular disease. Lauritsen has written hundreds of papers and articles on his views of the false definition of AIDS and “immune deficiency”. Lauristen also realized the AIDS health care providers, service organizations, and maintream media were actually helping the epidemic to progress.
Michael Fumento lost his job as the AIDS expert at the Commission of Civil Rights when he began to argue that AIDS was not an epidemic to society at all. He has published several books on the myths of AIDs and the media driven psychology of the disease. Fumento disparages the statistical data put forth by the media by arguing that the AIDS “epidemic has been on a steep decline since 1996 and can no longer be categorized as an epidemic at all. He also points out that the funding for AIDS far exceeds that of Cancer and heart disease research, while the number of people who die from these afflictions dwarf those of AIDS.(fumento.com) He argues that the disease became a political rallying point and has become a “bumper sticker disease”. The Government has exaggerated the AIDS crisis in every way to make it more politically correct and bring more money into the federal health agency coffers.(fumento.com)
