"To heal a situation it must first be exposed
Once exposed it must be healed."
A SYNDROME a "collection of symptoms" -
What about if someone discovers that he or she has been infected with the so called "HIV" virus?
The information the infected person will receive from the medical doctor, nurse, or other appointed health department officials will be that the HIV virus is the sole cause of Aids.
And that over the years the final result will be the breaking down of his or her immunity system.
The recommendation the person will receive is to start taking the AZT drug or a similar cocktail in order to prolong life and postpone death. A frightening and bleak prospect for the person in question. In the coming years many more people worldwide will pay a visit to their health departments or officials, as personal testing kits to discover if someone has been or has not been infected with HIV will become more and more available.
It may be better therefore to become your own Sherlok Holmes, developing your skills as a private detective to unravel the truth.
You won't usually get the following information from doctors or health officials:
1) Doctors Kill More People Than Guns and Traffic Accidents Combined. Ooooops!
2) Doctors and official health officials have not been trained in the Medical Schools to look for the causes but to treat symptoms. Neither have they been educated how to maintain, improve or recover the human immune system, other than by the treatment with drugs or by the means of surgery.
3) They are blindly following the guidelines of their Governmental Health Department which in its turn is financing, following and supporting the guidelines of the World Health Organisation which is maintained by the money collected from its citizens. (your tax money?)
4) There is not one single scientific document proving that HIV is the cause of AIDS, it is a HYPOTHESIS.
5) It was reported in 1996, that there are 65 known "false positive triggers" for HIV tests -- so how is it possible to know that people are infected and live with "HIV", taking into consideration the false and dubious test results?
(The false positive triggering conditions are included on this page.)
6) The recommendation of the drug AZT or the cocktails not only kills the virus but also the healthy cells. In other words, the treatment is to eliminate the virus while at the same time endangering the life of the patient and adding the case to the statistics published by the World Health Organisation. One could wonder if it would be more appropriate to call the World Health Organisation the World Pharmaceutical Organisation.
7) The world-wide brainwashing propaganda that AIDS is being caused by a virus, is financed by the AIDS establishment. The brilliant idea behind it is to first create a problem using fear and afterwards offering the solutions. The deadly HIV virus being the problem and the poisonous drugs, AZT, and the cocktails the solutions.
8) All other scientists, researchers, publishers, individuals are constantly being censored and ridiculed in order to avoid that people become aware of this assault on humanity.
9) The World Health Organisation, according an article published in 1983, has been influenced and taken over by pharmaceutical interests, playing the money game. This same World Health Organisation is also behind the push for the global vaccination programs and the fluoride propaganda machine poisoning children, adults and the environment.
10) Who knows but.... with the insistence of treating AIDS with toxic drugs, the censorship to avoid other points of views, it looks as if the AIDS Establishment is following the Global 2000 depopulation program, a global goal to eliminate at least 50% of the world population.
Therefore we suggest you to become your own Sherlock Holmes, a good detective, assuming your own responsibility by following your intuition.
"One of the intentions of corporate-controlled media is to instill in people a sense of disempowerment, of immobilisation and paralysis. Its outcome is to turn you into good, non-thinking consumers. It is to keep people isolated, to feel that there is no possibility for social change."
David Barsamian, journalist and publisher:
" The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate. "

World Health or World Pharmaceutical Organisation?
Since the Japanese Hiroshi Nakajima became top-ranking manager of the World Health organisation last year changes have been dramatic over there. Pharmaceutical industries are taking over rapidly. The headquarters in Geneva are quietly changing into a sycophantic bureaucracy, where officials (Nakajima only wants men) dare talk only in a whisper and anonymously.

Factors Known to Cause False Positive HIV Antibody Test Results
The AIDS establishment has managed to convince many people that the HIV antibody tests (ELISA, IFA and Western blot) are "99.5% accurate". In this article Christine Johnson from HEAL Los Angeles, lists conditions documented in the scientific literature known to cause positives on these tests, and gives her references.
Since false-positives to every single HIV protein have been documented (36), how do you know the positive WB bands represent the various proteins to HIV, or just a collection of false-positive bands reacting to several different non-HIV antibodies?

AIDS TESTS (with the corresponding references)
HIV POSITIVE ? DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU LIVE...
THE HIV WESTERN BLOT TEST
The HIV Western blot consists of a thin nitrocellulose strip in which are embedded proteins claimed to be unique to HIV. Each protein is labelled with a 'p' followed by its molecular weight in thousands. Serum is added to the strip and if there are antibodies to a particular protein this band will 'light up'.
The HIV Western blot is not standardised and thus around the world different combinations of bands are considered positive. Hence a positive test in one country is not positive in another. An African would not be positive in Australia. A person from the MACS would not be positive anywhere in the world including Africa. Yet the HIV Western blot is considered to be highly specific and is considered synonymous with HIV infection.
According to data presented in Lundberg et al. (JAMA 260:674-679) when the US FDA criteria are used to interpret the HIV Western blot less than 50% of US AIDS patients are HIV positive whereas 10% of persons not at risk of AIDS are also positive by the same criteria.

AZT is death.
By Celia Farber
Spin Aug. 1993
Celia Farber picks up the pieces of a shattered medical establishment at the Ninth International Conference on AIDS in Berlin.
To anybody who has followed the literature on AZT throughout, this is not news at all, but merely "official" confirmation of what has been known for years. If one had launched a full-scale truth-finding expedition - groping through the fallen rubble of AZT propaganda to find the kernel of truth underneath it all - the Anglo-French Concorde study would not have seemed revelatory at all.
Concorde went on for three years, examining 1,749 HIV-positive but healthy people at 38 health centers in the U.K., Ireland, and France. Because the research lasted the longest of all AZT studies to fate, and its pedigree was unassailable (it was conducted by the highly reputable British Medical Research Council and its French equivalent), Concorde could not be dismissed.
The team concluded that AZT - a highly toxic and carcinogenic drug - neither prolongs life nor staves off symptoms of AIDS in people who are HIV-antibody positive but still healthy. The blueprint for the Concorde "disappointment" has been in the literature for many years. As we reported in November 1989, the first objective study was completed in France in 1988 and was published with very little fanfare in the Lancet, a British medical journal.
The study found that AZT was too toxic for most people to tolerate, had no lasting effect on HIV blood levels, and left the patients with fewer CD4 cells than they had started with.
If Concorde appeared surprising, it was because we in the U.S. have been captivated by self-induced AZT mythology for so many years. It was our FDA that approved AZT for use in 1987 based on very flimsy data and with a little arm-twisting, and it was our National institutes of Health (NIH) that expanded the parameters for AZT to be given to all healthy, HIV-positive people. In 1989, the NIH cited a study, known as Protocol 019, that it said had "clearly shown" that early administration of AZT would keep AIDS at bay in that population.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), recommended that anyone with HIV antibodies and less than 500 CD4 cells should start taking AZT at once. At that time, that meant 650,000 people in the U.S. I had heard that the Concorde team had been under tremendous pressure from AZT's manufacturer. Burroughs Wellcome, to soften its results.
AZT IS DEATH
AZT ON TRIAL
By John Lauritsen
New York Native 19 Oct. 1987
I argued in a previous article (Native #215) that the theory behind AZT (now known by its trade name of Retrovir) was false, inasmuch as the hypothesis that HIV causes AIDS has been refuted by Prof. Peter H. Duesberg, a world-renowned molecular biologist at Berkeley; that AZT's alleged benefits were not backed up by reliable evidence; that its toxicities were firmly established and severe; and that therefore the drug should not be prescribed, recommended, or used.
In his interview with me (Native #220), Prof. Duesberg referred to AZT as "a poison" and as "cytotoxic" (lethal to body cells). Duesberg said that the theories behind AZT were false, that there was "no rationale for treating with AZT", that prescribing AZT was "highly irresponsible", and that AZT was "guaranteed" to be harmful: AZT hits all DNA that is made.
It is hell for the bone marrow, which is where the T and B cells and all those things are made. It's hell for that. It has a slight preference for viral DNA polymerase compared to cellular DNA polymerase, and that's based on in vitro studies only, but that's certainly not absolute.
It kills normal cells quite, quite extensively. At the time these articles were published, the only reports on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) trial that was the basis for granting government approval to market AZT, were in the popular media or a promotional film produced by AZT's manufacturer, Burroughs-Wellcome. Doctors who prescribed AZT did so on the basis on very limited information, along with the assurances of the Public Health Service that AZT represented the "best hope".

The AZT advisory on the label reads: "TOXIC. Toxic by inhalation, in contact with skin and if swallowed. Target organ(s): Blood bone marrow. If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show the label where possible). Wear suitable protective clothing." Note the skull and bones on the label; the indication for a deathly poison (bottle contains only 100 mg, healthy people are prescribed 500 to 1500 mg a day)

The story of Kris Chmiel
Kris Chmiel is a housewife and mother of two young children, living in Denver. When she was pregnant with her second child, a movement had just gotten under way to test all pregnant women in the state of Colorado for HIV, the virus widely believed to cause AIDS. (Critics remind us that what is tested for is not, in fact, HIV, but antibodies to HIV.) She was perfectly healthy and in her first month of pregnancy. She wasn't worried -- she had been monogamous with her husband for the past nine years.
When the test came back "positive," she literally did not believe it. Her doctors strongly urged her to immediately start taking the AIDS drug AZT, in an effort to prevent transmission to her child. "They finally wore me down," she says, "even though it was totally against my intuition." In her fifth month of pregnancy, Chmiel began taking 500 milligrams of AZT, a drug that has been routinely given to pregnant HIV-positive women following a 1994 study -- ACTG 076 -- which claimed efficacy in reducing the transmission from mother to child.
(1) (AZT stands for azidothymidine and is marketed under the names Zidovudine or Retrovir.)
OPPOSED TO AIDS DRUGS, MOTHERS GO UNDERGROUND
Mainstream doctors say 'fringe' science is risking lives of children By Mark Kennedy
The Ottawa Citizen 7 Sept. 1999
A growing number of HIV-positive mothers in Canada and the United States are going into hiding as part of an "underground railroad" to avoid having their children treated with anti-AIDS drugs. Some of the Canadian women, concerned that child-protection agencies will take away their babies, are fleeing to the U.S. to remain anonymous and stay beyond the reach of doctors.
The development is part of a recent trend that is infuriating the country's leading AIDS doctors and researchers. A group of U.S.-based dissident scientists has argued for years that HIV is not the cause of AIDS and there's no point in taking the drug cocktails designed to prevent the virus from turning into AIDS.
They argue the side effects of the drugs are so severe that they pose a greater risk to the patient than HIV itself. Montreal doctor Mark Wainberg, president of the International AIDS Society, dismisses the dissidents as "fringe people" who are trying to "make themselves out to be more important than they are." He wishes people would just ignore them so their views aren't given credence.
"Let me give you an example. There are people out there who deny that the Holocaust happened. Do we want to give them equal credibility?" Nonetheless, it appears the message is getting out, despite the best efforts of the medical community to persuade people with HIV that the anti-viral drugs offer the best, if not the only hope, of staying healthy.
MOTHERS GO UNDERGROUND
SINS OF OMISSION-The AZT Scandal
By Celia Farber
Spin Nov. 1989
On a cold January day in 1987, inside one of the brightly-lit meeting rooms of the monstrous FDA building, a panel of 11 top AIDS doctors pondered a very difficult decision. They had been asked by the FDA to consider giving lightning-quick approval to a highly toxic drug about which there was very little information. Clinically called Zidovudine, but nicknamed AZT after its components, the drug was said to have shown a dramatic effect on the survival of AIDS patients.
The study that had brought the panel together had set the medical community abuzz. It was the first flicker of hope - people were dying much faster on the placebo than on the drug. But there were tremendous concerns about the new drug. It had actually been developed a quarter of a century earlier as a cancer chemotherapy, but was shelved and forgotten because it was so toxic, very expensive to produce, and totally ineffective against cancer. Powerful, but unspecific, the drug was not selective in its cell destruction.
Drug companies around the world were sifting through hundreds of compounds in the race to find a cure, or at least a treatment, for AIDS. Burroughs Wellcome, a subsidiary of Wellcome, a British drug company, emerged as the winner. By chance, they sent the failed cancer drug, then known as Compound S, to the National Cancer Institute along with many others to see if it could slay the AIDS dragon, HIV. In the test tube at least, it did.
At the meeting, there was a lot of uncertainty and discomfort with AZT. The doctors who had been consulted knew that the study was flawed and that the long-range effects were completely unknown. But the public was almost literally baying at the door. Understandably, there was immense pressure on the FDA to approve AZT even more quickly than they had approved thalidomide in the mid-60s, which ended up causing drastic birth defects.
SINS OF OMISSION-THE AZT SCANDAL
HIV VOODOO FROM BURROUGHS-WELLCOME
By John Lauritsen
New York Native 7 Jan. 1991 [revised 16 Jan. 1991]
Those who have eyes to see are witnessing genocide-the genocide of gay men.
Unscrupulous pharmaceutical companies, corrupt government officials, venal physicians, stupid and cowardly media people, incompetent and dishonest researchers-none of these things are new. They are business as usual. Where, then, does the buck stop?
Who is responsible for pharmacogenocide?
My thinking on this question was altered recently when I read Confessions of a Medical Heretic by Robert Mendelsohn, who uncompromisingly places the blame on the members of his own profession: Despite the obvious corruption of the drug company/doctor marketing connection, I don't blame the drug companies, the detail men, the government agencies which are supposed to police these activities, or the patients who badger their doctors for drugs.
Doctors have enough facts in their possession to know what's going on. Even where the drug is fully tested and the side effects and limitations of the drug are well known, most of the harm is done by doctors indiscriminately prescribing the drug. Doctors, after all, are the ones who claim the sacred power and the ethical superiority that goes with it.
The drug companies are in business to make money, and they do that by selling as much of their product as they can at as high a price as they can. And although the drug companies subvert the scientific process through which drugs are tested, certified, and made available to doctors, once the drugs are available, they do let doctors know-albeit subtly-just what these drugs can and cannot do. All of us who know the truth about AZT will have to do what we can. Friends who are on AZT must be told directly and forcefully that they must get off the drug if they want to live. Public health officials, representatives of AIDS organizations, and various and sundry other "AIDS experts" must be confronted with their lies.
Above all, doctors must be told that they have no right to prescribe a drug that can only lead to the deaths of their patients. The buck stops with the AZT-pushing doctors.
They are responsible. *

POISON BY PRESCRIPTION-THE AZT STORY

This is the story of a toxic drug, with no scientifically proven benefits, which is being given to thousands of people, including who are perfectly healthy. It is a collusion among corrupt government officials, incompetent researchers, and an unscrupulous pharmaceutical company.
POISON BY DESCRiPTION-THE AZT STORY
The AIDS Catch
In 1987 the Centre for Disease Control in Atlanta USA, revised and broadened its definition of AIDS, listing 25 diseases. So many different diseases points away from one single viral cause argues Peter Duesberg.
DR. PETER DUESBERG: "AIDS is a collection or syndrome of 25 old diseases, conventional diseases. Not one of them is new. They've all been known for centuries, or at least for decades. With the provision that you have to find antibody to HIV or you or virus or some other traces of that virus, when they are found then those who believe in the virus as the cause of AIDS, say, those 25 diseases, any one of them or combination of them, are caused by the virus.
For example, if you have tuberculosis and you find HIV, they say HIV has done it. Eighty years ago, a hundred years ago Robert Koch used to say tuberculosis bacillus has done it."
THE AIDS CATCH (MEDITEL 1999)
AIDS AND AFRICA
At Old Mulago Hospital, Dr. Martin Okot-Nwang is in charge of the TB wards. He is concerned about the way TB and AIDS statistics are being wrongly reported. TB is a disease that occurs where there is poverty, malnutrition and lack of medicines. Conditions all rife in today's Uganda. Figures have doubled recently in these wards.
The rise in TB cases in Africa has led some scientists to speculate that the HIV virus is making some people more susceptible to the disease but it is hard to find any evidence for this. What IS documented is that flaws in the clinical case definition, that is the combination of symptoms used for diagnosing AIDS without an HIV test, have meant that many TB cases have mistakenly been called AIDS.

New US Government Guidelines & Home-Testing Kits
New government guidelines for tracking the AIDS virus are getting mixed reviews from advocates, who say the old system was outdated but the new one raises privacy concerns. The guidelines, published Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, asks states to report all HIV cases rather than just cases of full-blown AIDS.
Testing sites would report HIV cases and patient names or identifying codes to state health departments, which would pass case data on to the CDC. Names and other identifying information would be kept at the state level. States that don't comply with the guidelines risk losing federal funding for HIV surveillance ranging from $50,000 for Wyoming to $3 million for New York City.
The guidelines will mainly affect people who request an HIV test during visits to their regular doctor or when having lab work done that goes on their medical record. Most states have clinics that offer anonymous HIV tests, and home-testing kits can be bought over-the-counter at many drug stores.
