    Can the scientist who denied the cause of AIDS be trusted to cure cancer? --snip-- ...In the past three decades, Duesberg has been described as a genius, a martyr, and a genocidal lunatic—often by the same person, usually amid the fierce debates and international headlines that come with major scientific breakthroughs. In 1971, at the age of 33, he became the first scientist to identify a cancer-causing gene—a biological holy grail that secured his place among an elite group of the country's top researchers. Tenure at Berkeley and a coveted spot in the National Academy of Sciences followed. So did...

    Is the world overreacting to swine flu? The Indiana health commissioner says don’t shake hands with anyone. Vice President Joe Biden said try to avoid subways or planes, (although he backpedaled later). And people are buying up protective face masks left and right. Maybe a pandemic is in fact on its way — some reputable experts think as much. But maybe the much-cited example of the millions-killing Spanish flu of 1918 is less a guide to our immediate health future than the swine flu scare of 1976. Gerald Ford was president that year. He got caught up in the panic,...

What scientific judgement can we expect from experts who stand for a broad-based conviction that guarantees their income?

Unlike the West, from the start, HIV/AIDS in Africa has ravaged the non-drug-using heterosexual population. Let me put it this way: People whose Western counterparts are not at risk for HIV/AIDS have been the epidemic’s principal victims in Africa. Why? This has prompted many people to blame the victims in ways that played on the worst racial stereotypes and prejudices: Researchers and experts argued that “Africans were simply incapable of being anything...

    UN Cuts AIDS Estimates, Will Global Warming Projections Follow? As NewsBusters readers are aware, one of the positions of those not buying into the manmade global warming hysteria is that the United Nations -- whose Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is a large part of the alarmism -- is an organization that has seen more than its share of malfeasance and corruption. The recent scandal surrounding the U.N.'s Oil-for-Food program is one example, with problems that eventually plagued UNICEF another. Now, it has been revealed that the U.N. has been exaggerating the AIDS epidemic for many years. As reported [1]...

His bosses at the United Nations issued an official denial - but couldn't truly challenge his science. The effort...

But even the biggest optimists at the International AIDS Conference in Mexico don't believe that this target will be achieved. The thousands of scientists, activists and politicians who met to discuss AIDS-related issues at the conference over the past few days are also worried about the cost of supplying medicine. With a few million new infections each year, it is easy to see how the expense can spiral out of...

    AIDS experts say treating HIV/AIDS effectively requires more than medications such as anti-retroviral drugs; it requires good nutrition, food security and sustainable livelihoods.

Stephen Lewis, the former UN special envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa, is now co-director of AIDS Free World, an international organization that promotes timely, effective global responses in the fight against HIV/AIDS. From Toronto, Canada, he told Voice of America reporter Cole Mallard that without good nutrition it’s not possible for a person with HIV to handle the effects...

The Senate passed by a vote of 80-16 a $48 billion measure called President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) last week to fight AIDS worldwide.

Once again, just as we thought we were out of the woods, sort of, we have good reason again to be really scared.”

Hunger and disease create a vicious cycle, as famished people are more likely to fall victim to infectious and chronic diseases, which then reduce their ability to provide food for themselves and their family, the Rome-based...

    In April 1984, when the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and AIDS were just beginning to be understood, a senior official in the Department of Health and Human Services stated at a press conference that there would be a marketable vaccine within "a minimum of two years, probably more like three years."1 This prediction has haunted the search for an AIDS vaccine, whose most recent setback was the announcement that a promising vaccine candidate, Merck's V520, was not effective and may actually have increased some subjects' risk of acquiring HIV. Unfortunately, about a quarter-century after the discovery of HIV, there is...

    ...Regardless of whether Duesberg is right about HIV, his case, like Fishbein's, lays bare the political machinery of American science, and reveals its reflexive hostility to ideas that challenge the dominant paradigm. Such hostility is not unusual in the history of science, but the contemporary situation is dramatically different from those faced by maverick scientists in the past. Today's scientists are almost wholly dependent upon the goodwill of government researchers and powerful peer-review boards, who control a financial network binding together the National Institutes of Health, academia, and the biotech and pharmaceutical industries.
