The Group's members include medical scientists,
physicians, and other professionals from around the world who encourage
a serious and open reconsideration of the HIV explanation of AIDS. The
Group's members have identified solid scientific reasons to conclude
- HIV may be entirely harmless.
- People diagnosed with "AIDS" may be
sick not from HIV infections, but rather from other factors, such
as one or more of the following:
- Direct or indirect effects of recreational drug
- Immunological exposure to foreign proteins, such
as through hemophilia clotting factor therapy and blood transfusions.
- Impoverished living conditions.
- Toxic chemotherapy with "anti-HIV" pharmaceuticals
such as AZT and protease inhibitors.
- Psychosomatic terror inspired by a positive HIV
- Within the AIDS risk groups, AIDS conditions
may be common even in people who test HIV negative. This indicates
a need to look beyond HIV in order to explain AIDS, and a need to
reconsider the official AIDS definition, which limits diagnoses to
patients with presumed or diagnosed HIV infections.
- Pharmaceuticals prescribed to treat
HIV infections may actually cause some cases of AIDS.
- Most people who test HIV positive may
have no active HIV infections, including many AIDS patients.
- Contrary to the public health message
that "everyone is at risk for HIV and AIDS," the vast majority of
even sexually active Americans have no significant risk of either.
- Public officials, medical scientists,
and social activists may have:
- accepted the infectious HIV/AIDS
model with out properly scrutinizing it; and
- dismissed alternative models without
properly considering them; and
- created an environment in which
their peers feel unable to express conclusions that contradict
the HIV explanation of AIDS, for fear of severe political, professional,
and social penalties.
The Group formed in 1991 in support
of a letter urging a scientific reappraisal of the HIV-AIDS model. No
medical journal would publish this letter, even after hundreds of physicians,
scientists, and other professionals endorsed it.
The Group's Mission Statement
1) To develop, articulate, and promote
rational scientific discourse on the subject of HIV and AIDS.
2) To advocate the absolute right for students,
professors, physicians, scientists, government officials, and everyone
else to think freely and speak openly on the subject of HIV and AIDS
without fear of professional, social, political, economic, or criminal
3) To assemble scientists, physicians,
and other informed people who support these views, and make them available
for commentary and consultation to interested social groups, media outlets,
government agencies, professional organizations, and individuals.
Might HAART help? Overlooked studies show
that the so-called "HIV Protease Inhibitors" profoundly and
directly suppress two of the main opportunistic infections observed
in "AIDS" patients: P. carinii and Candida. This could explain
why some "HIV-positive" people experience improved health
when consuming these poisons. By Paul Philpott
Can Narcotics use help explain AIDS in
Africa? In discussing "AIDS" in Africa, critics of the HIV
explanation tend to focus on abject poverty as providing the best explanation.
Defenders of the HIV explanation insist that some African "AIDS"
cases develop among the non-impoverished. The possibility that such
cases involve narcotics offers a more reasonable explanation than the
idea of a sexually transmitted retrovirus. By Paul Philpott
South African president Thabo Mbeki continues
to stand strong against pressure to uncritically embrace the HIV model
of AIDS. By Paul Philpott
Decrease HIV transmission by having more
unprotected sex. That's the logical implication of the illogical conclusion
offered by authors of a new study examining African heterosexual prostitutes.
The logical conclusion: the data used to indicate "HIV transmission"
actually indicates nothing of the sort. By Paul Philpott
"Media watchdogs blast
fumento; Has the politicization of AIDS left science in the lurch?"
The political left assumes that a liberal media watch organization like
FAIR would critically examine the HIV/AIDS hysteria from the medical-industrial
complex. They would be wrong. By Christine Johnson and Steven Kurvink
