Its the Global Warming of social diseases.
I took a freind to the pharmacy to get a prescription filled- the cost was $400
When she said that she had no health insurance they re-filled it with a generic equivalent that cot $20
Only in a world where the cost is hidden by ‘co-pays’ is this possible.
And the ‘immediate care’ facility she went to because she has no regular doctor charged her $450 for an ‘emergency’ room visit- where the doctor looked at her scratch (literally) and prescribed an antibiotic- 45 seconds MAX.
When I called to complain they said the time did not matter it was the ‘quality’ of care that mattered.
I think AIDS is caused by an imbalance of humors.
Perhaps cutting or leeches should be attemtped.
...and you too can be the leader of South Africa......in addition to being a loon.
Deny the HIV-AIDS connection and I expect you to willlingly take an injection of these little buggers.
Didn’t Robert Koch have a method for sorting all this out.
Back in the 80’s or early 90’s you could be a skeptic about the link between HIV and AIDS without being a quack. The evidence was starting to accumulate, but it wasn’t quite settled. That’s not the case today.
In the long run, no one will be *ruined* for telling the truth.
Well I agree with you about the 80's and 90's. For sure there was no proof then that HIV was the cause of AIDS.
But here we are in the 21st century and if you are correct that the evidence has started to accumulate then it should be an easy thing to provide some links to that information. I've been looking and I can't find it.
Can you help?
2) People who are HIV positive with high viral loads have a corresponding low CD4+ T cell count. When antiviral medication is used to reduce the viral load, CD4+ T cell counts go up. This correlation between viral load and CD4+ cell count is well documented.
3) People with low CD4+ T cell counts are susceptible to diseases that people with a functioning immune system are not usually susceptible to. This is what we call AIDS as they do have a deficient immune system. This correlation between CD4+ T cells and immune deficiency is also well documented.
Where exactly are you having problems?
I need references to peer reviewed articles in reputable medical journals. As far as I know there is no proof that HIV is the cause of AIDS. I'm looking for that study that proves it does. Show me that study. Just give me a link.
Koch’s postulates met.
Aspects of immunopathogenic mechanisms of HIV infection.Feller L, Lemmer J.

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is characterized by progressive deterioration of the immune system nearly always resulting in death. Depletion in the numbers of CD4+ T cells is the hallmark of HIV infection and is central to the development of the clinical signs and symptoms that are characteristic of HIV disease. Other factors influencing the progression of HIV disease include the HIV viral load, the nature of the particular infecting HIV, and the level of competence of the immune effector cells.

Well, thats now what it was. I urge you to read it for your self. It really makes you wonder if HIV/AIDS is more of a political issue than a medical fact.
Sorry but antibodies of an infection are not proof of infection. They are proof of a past infection. You cannot substitute an HIV antibody test for the virus itself and therefor you cannot use this to show the strong association required by Koch. Plus Koch requires a strong correlation. That strong correlation does not exist with the HIV virus.
“virtually all” is not a strong correlation? Just what then do you think the word “correlation” means?
