Attack of the AIDS denialists…

with 4 comments

My recent piece on “bogus sceptics” in the New Statesman drew some impressively prompt brickbats from the AIDS denial 24-hour rapid response unit. I particularly liked this one:

Do yourself a favor, before you insert your foot in your mouth again. Richard, check out the blog of a professor who investigates pseudoscience, who recently FULLY researched hiv/aids and found himself fully in agreement with Dr. Duesberg, at hivskeptic.wordpress.com.

Or read Professor Duesberg’s books.

You will find upon your own research that the years of high death said to be due to hiv are the EXACT YEARS of high dosage AZT.

You will find that NO test finds verified HIV.

You will find that the HIV tests are proven to often go off with 70 different PROVEN factors.

You will find that there is NO proof that HIV is the cause of AIDS.

You will find that the leading cause of death in HIV positives in the west, is and always has been in those who take the HIV drugs.

No fool like an old fool, Richard. Surely you are not too old to learn something new! And being an obviously closed minded dogmatist yourself, perhaps it is time to come out of your little eggshell and wake up and smell the coffee, and at least admit that you are far from being any kind of a knowledgeable purveyor of truth yourself.

I’ve done my best to respond on the article itself, but I thought it might also be useful to post a link here to one of the most comprehensive summaries I’ve seen of the evidence linking HIV and AIDS, from the US National Institute of Health.

  1. As I just posted on the New Statesman site, you should look at http://www.healtoronto.com/nih/
    which thoroughly exposes the errors in that NIH “Fact Sheet”

  2. Thanks Henry, but I’ve had a look at the healtoronto statement and it really doesn’t seem particularly “thorough” at all. It makes no mention at all, for example of the 1993 cohort study by Schechter et al showing the strong epidemiological connection between HIV infection and AIDS. And it also makes repeated reference to non-peer-reviewed work by Papadopulos-Eleopulos, whose ideas even Duesberg seems to think are something of an embarrassment: http://www.virusmyth.com/aids/hiv/mcinterviewpd.htm

  4. […] HIV/AIDS Denialism… What will they deny next? Posted September 23, 2008 Filed under: Denialism | Tags: AIDS, Denialism | I’ve only recently started to hear about this brand of conspiracy nutting. Apparently for several years now, some folks have been vocally and passionately denying that HIV causes AIDS. It is based primarily on the opinions of the Berkeley virologist Peter Duesberg. They believe pharmaceutical companies are promoting the HIV/AIDS relationship so they can sell more drugs. And some deniers think it is even the drugs that are killing people (particularly AZT)… […]
