(NaturalNews) Since the discovery of lymphadenopathy-associated virus (later called human immunodeficiency virus [HIV]) in 1983 by Luc Montagnier at the Pasteur Institute in France, scientists have attempted to understand how HIV leads to full-blown AIDS. An entire industry surrounding AIDS emerged as researchers began developing AIDS drugs and AIDS vaccines to halt the virus, stop its mode of action, and inhibit its spread.
Questioning HIV and AIDS
According to AIDS.gov, the human immunodeficiency virus attacks the T cells, using them to make copies of the virus, ultimately overtaking the immune system until a person has full-blown acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). At this stage, opportunistic infections can take hold and take a compromised person out.
Throughout the years, journalists, researchers and medical experts have questioned the link that was made between HIV and AIDS. Often called AIDS denialists, these open-minded individuals are actually investigating ways in which infected patients can strengthen their immune systems.
According to the man who discovered AIDS, 2008 Nobel Prize winner Luc Montagnier, being HIV-positive doesn't have to lead to full blown AIDS: "We can be exposed to HIV many times without being chronically infected. Our immune system will get rid of the virus within a few weeks, if you have a good immune system."
Does this mean that those who test positive for HIV may not be at risk of AIDS?
Newest HIV vaccine fraud reveals an overzealous medical culture that cannot be trusted
When a celebrated HIV vaccine inventor admits to fraud in clinical vaccine tests, it's important to question not only the present fraud but also potential misleading disinformation surrounding HIV and AIDS, so that there can be a better understanding going forward about immune system diseases. The scientific community surrounding AIDS can no longer be trusted.
The man in question is Iowa State University laboratory manager Dong-Pyou Han. He recently confessed to spiking rabbit blood samples with human antibodies. This made the experimental HIV vaccine appear successful. Federal prosecutors filed charges against Han after he admitted to falsifying data that got the support of large government grants. Han has been indicted on four counts of making false statements, which carries a possible sentence of 20 years in prison.
"It's an important case because it is extremely rare for scientists found to have committed fraud to be held accountable by the actual criminal justice system," said Ivan Oransky, co-founder of Retraction Watch, which tracks research misconduct.
The case has destroyed the public's trust in vaccine researchers and even in the National Institutes of Health. The fraud begs questions about current HIV drugs, public information on AIDS, how the virus is transferred, and so forth.
Mike Carome, director of Public Citizen's Health Research Group, said, "It's a pretty extraordinary case involving clear, intentional falsification." He added, "The wool was pulled over many people's eyes."
How easily is HIV transmitted, really?
In research from UC Berkeley led by Dr. Nancy Padian, more questions arose when HIV was documented as hard to transmit sexually.
"We followed up 175 HIV-discordant couples [one partner tests positive, one negative] over time, for a total of approximately 282 couple-years of follow up." She went on to say, "No transmission [of HIV] occurred among the 25% of couples who did not use their condoms consistently, nor among the 47 couples who intermittently practiced unsafe sex during the entire duration of follow-up."
"We observed no seroconversions after entry into the study [nobody became HIV positive]... This evidence argues for low infectivity in the absence of either needle sharing and/or other cofactors."
HIV drugs tested on NYC orphans, over 200 killed
In 2004, investigative journalist Liam Scheff broke the news on a National Institutes of Health clinical trial scandal in New York City. The government-funded study used orphans from the city and subjected them as guinea pigs to pharmaceutical drug trials. After interviewing mothers, children and childcare workers at the Incarnation Children's Center for years, Scheff found out that over 200 children died during the experiments, which often force-fed drugs to the children through nasal and gastric tubes.
This begs the question - how honest and ethical is the industry surrounding AIDS?
After investigating the infamous AIDS drug experiments on orphans, Scheff became very skeptical about the entire industry surrounding AIDS that puts, "sexual restrictions on Africans and interferes with their childbirth and fertility," while drugging populations with toxic drugs that shorten life expectancy and are involved in the deaths of orphans in NIH human trial tests.
