Human immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is a spectrum of conditions caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV),[1][2][3] a retrovirus.[4] Following initial infection a person may not notice any symptoms, or may experience a brief period of influenza-like illness.[5] Typically, this is followed by a prolonged period with no symptoms.[6] If the infection progresses, it interferes more with the immune system, increasing the risk of developing common infections such as tuberculosis, as well as other opportunistic infections, and tumors which are otherwise rare in people who have normal immune function.[5] These late symptoms of infection are referred to as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).[6] This stage is often also associated with unintended weight loss.[6]

Controversy[edit]

A small group of individuals continue to dispute the connection between HIV and AIDS,[7] the existence of HIV itself, or the validity of HIV testing and treatment methods.[8][9] These claims, known as AIDS denialism, have been examined and rejected by the scientific community.[10] However, they have had a significant political impact, particularly in South Africa, where the government's official embrace of AIDS denialism (1999–2005) was responsible for its ineffective response to that country's AIDS epidemic, and has been blamed for hundreds of thousands of avoidable deaths and HIV infections.[11][12][13]

A minority of people claim that certain types of viruses like the HIV virus, or polio or Covid-19 coronavirus do not exist. Noted scientist Duesberg claimed that HIV and AIDS weren't causally linked in the 1980's before much was really known about AIDS, so his skepticism then wasn't entirely unfounded. Science devoted 3 months of investigation to "The Duesberg Phenomenon" (vol. 266, 9 December 1994). It concluded: In hemophiliacs (the group Duesberg acknowledges provides the best test case for the HIV hypothesis) there is abundant evidence that HIV causes disease and death.[14] A more recent discussion is in Robert Kennedy's book on Fauci.[15]

Kennedy writes on the controversy : However, I recognize that there are some fifty thousand articles on AIDS in the scientific literature. A casual novitiate like myself has little chance of unraveling this baroque controversy in a vacuum. Without rigorous debate, the public and press must form opinions based upon appeals to authority—a feature of religion, not of democracy or science. Any debate on that battleground will always be won by self-interested government and industry officials who control the bullhorn and the media.[16]

Kary Mullis said, “Years from now, people looking back at us will find our acceptance of the HIV theory of AIDS as silly as we find the leaders who excommunicated Galileo, just because he insisted that the Earth was not the center of the universe,” predicts Mullis. “It has been disappointing that so many scientists have absolutely refused to examine the available evidence in a neutral, dispassionate way, regarding whether HIV causes AIDS.”[17] And  : As Kary Mullis says in his book Dancing Naked in the Mind Field, “What people call science today is probably very similar to what was called science in 1634. Galileo was told to recant his beliefs or be excommunicated. People who refuse to accept the commandments of the AIDS establishment are basically told the same thing.”

In her book, Science Sold Out: Does HIV Really Cause AIDS?, Rebecca Culshaw writes, “The persistence of this intellectually bankrupt theory in the public mind is attributable entirely to the campaign of fear, discrimination, and terror that has been waged aggressively by a powerful group of people whose sole motivation was and is behavior control. Yes, the money and the vast interests of the pharmaceutical industry and government-funded scientists are important, but the seeds of the HIV/AIDS hypothesis are sowed with fear. If the fear were to end, the myth would end.”

HHV6[edit]

In 1986 the human herpesvirus HHV6 was discovered and has been discussed as a cause of AIDS. Robert Kennedy comments: These kinds of findings threatened to derail and discredit Anthony Fauci’s entire HIV/AIDS paradigm. What, after all, would be the implications if a mild, off-patent remedy like acyclovir could safely treat AIDS more effectively than Dr. Fauci’s expensive pharmacopoeia of deadly chemotherapy poisons? He choked off any further funding for HHV6 research, despite Knox’s potentially lifesaving discovery of the efficacy of acyclovir against AIDS.[18]

Mycoplasma[edit]

Dr. Shyh-Ching Lo and Luc Montagnier have argued that Mycoplasma might be a cause of AIDS. Tetracycline stopped the mycoplasma’s destruction entirely in its tracks.[19]
