Once again, I suggest you get caught up and stop repeating claims that were only true in the 90's. The Virus most certainly has been isolated.
The conspiracy is that everyone is prone or vulnerable to this disease, including straight males, which simply isn't entirely true. There are
instances, however, it is still a disease predominant in the gay community.
There was a Sexual Disease Dr in my city who has stated in 30 years of practice he hasn't once encountered someone who acquired HIV through a 1 time
heterosexual bout. Not to say, it can't happen, it does, but not nearly as high of a rate as homosexuals.
The above poster who is posting how no one has every survived long term on HIV drugs, you are off your rocker. Go to thebody.com. Tell them, they
are all dead and that the drugs that have kept them alive aren't really helping. Lets see how far you get.
It wouldn't go over well if the government pinned this entirely on gays, so instead they tell everyone to use protection, you're at risk, ect ect.
When the instances of 1 night heterosexual transmission is rather low. Something like 1 in 1-1000 or 1-2000, if the male is circumsized, those
numbers drop even further. Viral load is believed to be a significant contributor to risk of transmission. The higher the load, the more likely you
are to give it to some1, if you're undetectable, you won't likely pass it on.
These papers were all written when viral loads, isolation of the virus ect hadn't yet occurred, these points of contention that Duesberg had have now
been satisfied, although Duesberg is still unchanged, most of his peers that once sided with him no longer do.
I agree that the community acted unfairly and unkindly to Duesberg in trying to silence his dissent, but the mountain of evidence leads to HIV causing
AIDS. I find dissenters work valuable as well, but his gig is up. He can't explain the low T cells in HIV + people alone, and why it isn't true for
the drug users he claims that lifestyle lead to their aids diagnosis. He has no proof, AZT isn't even used anymore, but yet he still claims this
toxic drug leads to AIDS. Simply put, he is out of touch and so are all these claims from the 90's. Very few scientists, researchers, chemists still
hold those views today. Twenty years ago he was quite right to question what was going on, but since that time it has been proven undeniably that HIV
eventually leads to AIDS.
To hear people still spewing this nonsense is disheartening and unfortunate.
