The case against HIV

The case against HIV | Health, HIV & Addiction Topics in the LGBT Community | Scoop.it

Many facts show that HIV/AIDS theory is wrong. Several dozen books have discussed various reasons for not believing HIV/AIDS theory. 

I came to realize that HIV/AIDS theory is wrong when a sentence in Harvey Bialy’s book led me to collate the results of published “HIV” tests and to realize that what those tests detect is not an infectious nor a sexually transmitted thing.

Two x Two for AIDS and Art is already Dallas’ chicest benefit, and this year style maven Nasiba Adilova managed to ratchet up the quotient even more. The Russian transplant teamed up with Two x Two host Cindy Rachofsky and Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld to wrangle far-flung young collectors and fashion luminaries to the Southern city. They partied Friday with a Champagne preview at the Rachofsky House, the night before Two x Two marked its 15th anniversary with a contemporary art auction that scored $5 million for amfAR and the Dallas Museum of Art.

Better Understanding of HIV Epidemic Through Evolutionary Lens

Better Understanding of HIV Epidemic Through Evolutionary Lens | Health, HIV & Addiction Topics in the LGBT Community | Scoop.it

With the abundance of sequencing data, scientists can use ever more powerful evolutionary biology tools to pinpoint the transmission and death rates for epidemics such as HIV, which has remained elusive to a cure. Reconstructed evolutionary trees, called phylogenies, can trace a family of viral mutations over time. When combined with epidemiology, tree construction can allow for great insight into the dynamics of disease transmission and how a pathogen eludes its host to spread infection.
