Potential cure for HIV discovered
Fri, 29 Jun 2007
In a breakthrough that could potentially lead to a cure for HIV infection, scientists have discovered a way to remove the virus from infected cells, a study released on Thursday said.
The scientists engineered an enzyme which attacks the DNA of the HIV virus and cuts it out of the infected cell, according to the study published in Science magazine.
The enzyme is still far from being ready to use as a treatment, the authors warned, but it offers a glimmer of hope for the more than 40 million people infected worldwide.cooltech.iafrica.com...

On a positive note:
33 million people on earth are living with AIDS or infected with HIV:

There are better methods of population control than a disease that can incubate for many years before causing symptoms, and then taking years to kill someone. That does not make sense at all. I've been HIV+ for at least 16 years and I have two children. So much for control of the population in my household.

The HIV origin model of Edward Hooper in his book "The River" is that the use of chimps in polio vaccine trials in the Congo in the early 1950s is what led to AIDS. Hooper notes the quite-early-on spread of AIDS in the Congo, so - "voila" he has the answer. The best the medical Establishment can rebut is to cite the presence of the AIDs virus in very old (1930s) blood specimens which has not been totally convincing.
Orthodox medical scientists don't have that insight
I believe the natives had a benign form of HIV to which they normally developed immunity pre birth from maternal antibodies, then acquired active immunity as children from eating monkey meat.

Look at it from cause and effect. Whether you like it or not...the virus does help control the population. .
HAS GALLO PROVEN THE ROLE OF HIV IN AIDS?
Papadopulos-Eleopulos E, Turner VF, Papadimitriou JM. Emergency Medicine [Australia] 1993;5: 113-123.
The evidence that Robert Gallo and his colleagues presented on 4th May 1984 regarding HTLV‑III (HIV) isolation and the role of HIV in the pathogenesis of AIDS is critically analysed. It is concluded that the evidence does not constitute proof of the isolation of a retrovirus, that the virus is exogenous or that the virus is causally related to AIDS.
A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF THE EVIDENCE FOR THE EXISTENCE OF HIV AND THE HIV ANTIBODY TESTS
Geneva, June 28th 1998
The only way to prove the existence of a virus is to isolate its particles. It is only by doing this that we obtain pure particles to inspect, and analyse, and to introduce into fresh cell cultures to prove particles make more of the same. After all, no matter how viral-like they may look, this is what particles must show us before they ever earn the title, virus.
Have HIV experts gone to all this trouble? No. The only reason we have HIV is antibodies. A few antibodies amongst the plethora in AIDS patients that react with a few proteins present in the lymphocyte cultures of AIDS patients. When it is all said and done, it’s not just that antibodies are used to prove some individuals are infected with HIV. For the HIV protagonists, antibodies are the proof that they have isolated HIV.

Not a one person in this thread said anything about monkey brains being eaten as the vector of HIV entering the human population.
There is no conspiracy. There's just a bunch of paranoid people who want to blame someone for nature's taking its course and evolving a virus that crossed species barriers, just like smallpox, tuberculosis and other diseases have done in the past.
