Despite vicious personal attacks on scientists who challenge the hypothesis that HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is the cause of AIDS, questioning continues after 3 decades, reports cardiovascular surgeon Donald W. Miller, Jr., M.D., in the spring 2015 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.“The Case against HIV,” he notes, now lists about 900 references.
Miller begins with the situation of a healthy blood donor who is found to have a positive test for HIV. Adhering to government guidelines, a “healthcare provider” will start this apparently healthy patient on a lifelong regimen of expensive drugs: a cocktail of “two nukes and a third drug.”
A new development in HIV care, called pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), promotes universal coverage with antiretroviral drugs toprevent HIV infections. And since many people stop taking their drugs because of side effects, a new program called P4P4P (pay for performance for patients), now under study, would give patients financial incentives to keep taking the drugs.
Miller points out a number of facts:
- When an HIV-positive person dies of cancer, heart disease, or liver disease, the virus is blamed for helping to cause death. Yet all these conditions are known effects of the drugs.
- Drug-free prostitutes do not become HIV-positive, despite their occupation.
- More than 70 things are associated with false-positive HIV tests, including influenza vaccines, hepatitis B vaccine, tuberculosis, pregnancy, and African ancestry.
- HIV is said to cause immunodeficiency by killing T-cell lymphocytes. But T cells thrive when grown in test tubes infected with HIV.
- More than $100 billion has been spent on AIDS research, without curing a single AIDS patient. AIDS research focuses single-mindedly on HIV without considering any other potential causative factors.
Miller concludes: “Despite its long-term, widespread acceptance, the HIV/AIDS hypothesis is proving to be a substantial fallacy of modern medicine.”
