African AIDS Debate Panel Holds First Meeting in May
In preparing to host July's International AIDS Conference, South
African President Mbeki made history as the world's first head of
state to consult with scientists who reject the HIV explanation of
AIDS. This outraged many powerful quarters that demand an ignorance
and suppression of such views. Mbeki responded by assembling an international
panel that included "dissident" scientists. Here Mark Conlan interviews
"heretic" scientists Peter Duesberg and David Rasnick. In May, the
two participated in the panel's first scheduled meeting, where participating
HIV scientists managed to suppress any debate or presentation of facts.
They also declined to engage in the Internet discussion meant to bridge
the first meeting and the second, to take place in early July, just
before the conference. Yet one CDC official reportedly agreed to work
with Duesberg on an experiment to test the HIV-AIDS model.

factors like street drugs and anti-HIV pharmaceuticals can. But he thinks
a complete picture of AIDS emerges only by additionally considering
some factors Duesberg and Rasnick overlook, such as repeatedly acquired
STDs and the drugs used to treat them.

HIV is Pathogenic" David
Rasnick reports from the 1997 AIDS conference, which he attended as
a protease inhibitor expert with over 15 years experiance as a pharmaceutical
chemist in San Francisco. He reveals what happens when HIV proponents
are presented with clear data demonstrating that drug-resistant mutations
of HIV cannot explain the failures of anti-HIV medicaions, and why
the viral load test actually indicates very small numbers of viable
HIV. Rasnick has a PhD in chemistry and an undergraduate degree in
biology from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and now works with
Peter Duesberg as a resident AIDS researcher at the University of
California at Berkely.
The Big Tease A 1997 article from the Amhearst Valley
Advocate by Mark Anderson. Rasnick shows that HIV protease studies,
even those imploying "cocktail" therapy, fail to show any clincial benefits
for AIDS patients, despite wildly optimistic press accounts.
The Drug-AIDS Hypothesis A 1997 technical paper that
Rasnick wrote with Duesberg in which they detail why they believe that
HIV is totally harmless, and that street drugs and anti-HIV medications
explain over 90% of all AIDS cases in the United States.
Load There was a time not long

HIV/AIDS Epidemic? Editor Paul
Philpott uses the CDC's 1995 HIV/AIDS Year-End report and other documents
to show that:
- American AIDS cases started declining in 1993--for
all groups, even women and blacks--although health officials continue
to claim that AIDS is "growing"--especially for blacks and women.
- Among heterosexual Americans with no histories
of drug injections or blood transfusions, the HIV rate is a tiny
one per 7,000.
- The tiny HIV rate for average Americans has never
increased above it's current rate of one per 7,000.
- Only 5% of all American AIDS cases are classified
- Most "heterosexual" American AIDS cases involve
gays and drug injectors who lie about their status, drug users who
don't inject, and people who got sick only after consuming AZT and
other "anti-HIV" drugs.
- The transmission frequency for HIV is only once
per thousand unprotected coital acts. Coupled with the rare occurrence
of HIV outside the risk groups, the risk of the average American
contracting an HIV infection from a random unprotected sexual encounter
is only one in seven million. That's less likely than a hole-in-one!
Are Gay AIDS Patients Drug Users?
A survey of articles from the medical journals showing that between
93% and 100% of all AIDS patients who identify themselves as "gay or
bisexual men" also admit to consuming cocaine, speed, heroin, or poppers.
