Here is a brief start:

From there, you will see the statements of credible experts and their studies, including the breakdown of how HIV tests 'detect' the 'presence' of an invisible virus.

There are also lots of sources available that show where pretty much all babies born to HIV + mothers do not contract the virus. This alone shows that blood and vaginal fluids are not transmitters; further concluding that the virus (if any) is 'spread' from person to person.

As another poster stated, there would be a ridculous epidemic of AIDS cases, if it was simply passed through blood or even unprotected sex.

I stand by the hypothesis that the 'virus' is not a virus at all; more a deficiency of a needed element that the body has stopped producing.

HIV + patients go from high viral loads to lowered viral loads, and even 'undetectable.

A virus is not going to appear, disappear just a little, or disappear altogther, especially if it is a true isolated virus.

As a gay male myself, the reason why infections are on the increase is very straightforward.

Its men having sex with men.

Men's sex drives as typically high and what you get in the gay 'community' is a situation whereby a huge proportion of guys just want to have as much sex as often as as they like: its part of the culture. This doesnt happen as much in the straight communitis simply because women do not sleep around as much as men. The gay culture, permits, promotes and expects men to 'fill their' boots when it comes to sex, its a unspoken rule. Look at grindr for example....shameful.

Porn has a role to play. The fashion in gay porn is 'barebacking' or sex without a condom. This is teaching gay men of all ages, but especially youg and sexually active men, that the sexiest and most exciting type of sex is without a condom.

Then you add in the view that many YOUNG gay men believe: HIV/Aids is a minor infection, it wont kill you and no longer is an issue. Its sooo 80's. If more men are 'pos' then having sex without protection makes hooking up and casual sexual encounters even more rife.

Its a cocktail of problems. To cure we need proper gay sex education and promotion of self respect and of monogamy.

The problem is that people do not understand risk verses prevalence. The prevalence of HIV positivity among gay men is 19%. The lifetime risk of a gay man getting HIV is 50%. The writers of the article seem not to have understood the meaning of what they read. Prevalence is the percent of HIV in a population at any given moment. Incidence (which can be translated to risk) is the likelihood of getting HIV over an interval of time.

Risk (incidence) is always greater than prevalence, because... well, your talking about risk... lol.... which is different.
