Like all retrovirus's HIV does not destroy the host cell it enters and further the virus does not kill T-lymphocytes in a test tube. So how does HIV kill the T-lymphocytes in the human body? Further there are people with HIV who never get AIDS and people with AIDS who don't have HIV. In short HIV fails all the criteria which scientifically links a known virus with a specified disease.
Peter Duesberg argues that AIDS is a lifestyle problem where people have destroyed their immune systems by injecting drugs or through poor diet (Africa). Its well known that you can damage your immune system this way. Take the case of that women in the US you ate nothing but fruit because she thought it was good for her and ended up living in a plastic bubble. Presumably if she hadn't have lived in the plastic bubble she would have got all the symptoms of AIDS.
People have made big money out of AIDS and HIV and it seems Reagan played a leading part in putting the pressure on to increase his popularity ratings.
Post whenever you desire no matter what conversations other member of the site are engaged in.
It won't be considered as an interruption.
I'm certain that those persons who reside in Africa in areas that are considered to be third world countries and are suffering from AIDS/HIV have contracted this virus because they have chosen a poor diet instead of a healthy one.
