January 2013 — An interview with Dr. Christian Fiala, excerpted from the film Positively False: Birth of a Heresy.
"...it indicates that science has turned into something like a religion, where opinions are perceived to be a threat if they don't follow the currently held beliefs and if they don't represent political correctness. So what we need to understand is that science is not truth, it is one system, one belief system that helps us to understand reality, and like any other belief system, it has mistakes and we need to understand the functioning and try to make the best out of it, without taking it for the absolute truth."

HAART Drugs Are the New Prevention
David Crowe January, 2012
When doctors and researchers who also happen to be some of Canada’s top AIDS drug pushers, such as Julio Montaner, say that non-disclosure of HIV status in a sexual relationship should be decriminalized – what’s not to like about that? Call me cynical, but I could not believe that AIDS experts, so tightly aligned with the drug companies, had decided that HIV is not a deadly sexually-transmitted disease or that HIV tests are not accurate.

: David Crowe discusses the invention of the AIDS virus and the research material that suggests that it’s time to start rethinking AIDS and HIV. In this program we talk about how difficult it has been to raise awareness about this critical issue that examines the AIDS/HIV problem from an alternative perspective. Are the billions being poured into the AIDS/HIV industry every year really helping? David reveals what the science and research is really saying.
In March 2011, Firenze, Italy, hosted the Italian Conference on AIDS and Retroviruses
. It is well known that for more than 25 years the opinions of so-called dissident scientists such as Professors Peter Duesberg
and Henry Bauer
were never allowed in mainstream conferences and any voice questioning the role of HIV in causing AIDS was systematically shut off. Associations for the scientific reappraisal of the HIV/AIDS hypothesis such as Rethinking AIDS
were never invited or even allowed to participate.
This deplorable state of affairs officially came to an end in Firenze with the formal and official recognition of the contributions
of scientists such as Duesberg
, all questioning the role of HIV in the aetiology and pathogenesis of AIDS. Read Professor Marco Ruggiero's full report...

“Everything about Ruggiero was improbable; A full Professor of Molecular Biology, Department of Experimental Pathology and Oncology at the University of Firenze, Italy, who suddenly appeared on the HIV/AIDS scene as somebody in whom the blood-soaked distinction between orthodox and dissident appeared to have dissolved. He was both. That is to say, he came from extremely mainstream, indeed orthodox channels, yet when he dissented from said orthodoxy on the question of HIV’s pathogenesis, he apparently did so not only without trauma, but to the sound of cheering, from his Italian colleagues and peers.”

Recently, another renowned athlete, Olympic Gold Medalist Lee Evans

, expressing his doubts about widely accepted beliefs: "I have been all over Africa for almost 30 years and when I first heard there was a new sexually transmitted disease epidemic I was alarmed...All I ever saw was more and more of the same diseases we saw in 1975...but nobody except the media and the people living off AIDS money ever called that AIDS."
A few days ago, a video clip
was posted on the Internet, which produced the kind of buzz that is shaking the world of AIDS research. This clip shows a recent interview with Professor Luc Montagnier in which he declares: “We can be exposed to HIV many times without being chronically infected. Our immune system will get rid of the virus within a few weeks.”
These remarks are likely to surprise you when you discover they come from the man who obtained the 2008 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his discovery, in 1983, of HIV, the so–called virus that causes AIDS. Even more surprising — this is not Professor Montagnier’s first such radical statement. In 1990 he declared, on an American television program, that HIV was not the only cause of the syndrome AIDS (he postulated the action of infectious co–factors) and that HIV’s role might only be secondary in the destruction of the immune system of infected people.
At that time, this was equivalent to completely exonerating the virus. His statement unleashed an outcry in the scientific community which started to associate Luc Montagnier with Professor Peter Duesberg, a famous American retrovirologist of the University of California at Berkeley, and leader of a group of “dissident” scientists who, even now, keep questioning any involvement of HIV in causing the syndrome AIDS. In 1993 and 1998, in the context of a documentary film about “dissidents”, the Pasteur Institute’s virologist reiterated this statement, adding that people with a good immune system were protected against HIV infection. So, he was already saying the same thing as today!
But beyond the surprising nature of the French virologist’s statements, these remarks should be deciphered so that their (in)consistency gets evaluated. First of all, the steadfast way Luc Montagnier has been, for nearly twenty years, repeating such remarks, reveals that he never believed HIV could actually be the main and unique cause of the syndrome AIDS. Even though he has always condemned the Dissidents’ point of view, every new remark he makes brings him a little closer to their hypothesis and moves him away from the official thesis according to which HIV = AIDS. However, Luc Montagnier refuses to be likened to the Dissidents and remains one of the most fervent defenders of the official research on AIDS. His, to say the least, risky and acrobatic performance gives him a position that allows him to swing over from one side to the other depending upon whether progress or doubt is occurring in AIDS research. Such an attitude does not characterize great scientific courage or a very honest attitude towards the millions of people who have been diagnosed as HIV positives and are living in the fear of the disease.

Lost AIDS: Luc Montagnier’s HIV
Luc Montagnier was crowned Prince of AIDS in December 2008 by the Nobel Prize for Medicine, being acclaimed the discoverer of LAV (now known as HIV) in a man who did not have AIDS (but was believed to be at risk) in 1983. One of the reasons it took almost 25 years to award the prize must have been the question of who should be crowned. Montagnier is infinitely malleable but his view of HIV is far more nuanced and oftentimes heretical than the dogmas that have grown up around him. Gallo, everyone knew, produced highly questionable if not totally corrupt science, but would lash out if spurned.
The decision to go with Montagnier must have been nail-biting. Could he keep his mouth shut and would Gallo keep his temper? They would be happy for the new prince to stay locked up in his palace, living with whatever luxuries he rang for. Nobody would care whether he romped with princesses, collected antique cars or stirred up new viral cultures – all he had to do was stay on script, a vain hope because he has never done that before. But, maybe they were counting on a compliant media that would continue their job of not reporting the news. Pictures of the Prince are okay, but not his words. They were not counting on the young film maker Brent Leung.
When I heard Montagnier speak in Calgary in January 2009, just after his award, he stayed on script for the first part of his talk, but then started on about how AIDS was a disease of oxidative stress, and later about how oxidative stress could be reversed through the use of antioxidants such as his favorite, fermented papaya. He was careful to talk about antioxidants in the context of other diseases he blamed on oxidative stress, not AIDS, so it appears that, basking in the glow of this great man of science, nobody noticed the trail of breadcrumbs from oxidative stress to AIDS and from antioxidants back to health.
Filmmaker Brent Leung has now released new footage of Montagnier
, far beyond what made the cut into his documentary, House of Numbers
. During this almost entirely unedited interview he kept Montagnier on the subject of HIV and AIDS. All I can say is, “Remarkable! Stunning! Shocking! Amazing!”. In it Montagnier states that someone with a healthy immune system could be exposed to HIV many times without being chronically infected and that it is malnutrition that makes the immune systems of Africans weak and the diseases of TB, malaria and parasitic infections. “Water is key”, clearly meaning clean water, without parasites and pollutants.
When Leung asks him, “If you take a poor African who’s been infected and you build up their immune system, is it possible for them to also naturally get rid of it [HIV]?”. Montagnier responds, “I would think so…It’s important knowledge that is completely neglected. People always think of drugs and vaccines.”
Don’t let me tell you what Montagnier said. Listen for yourself and watch how calm and sincere he is
. This is not a man nervously trying to evade questions. This is a man who is at ease with his ideas. Perhaps, seated on his throne in the Institut Pasteur he wasn’t thinking about the effect of his beliefs on his legions of warriors around the world.
Montagnier is careful not to completely discount a role for HIV, but that’s not important. He dismantles three quarters of the house of cards that is AIDS and never once recites the mainstream creed, “I believe in one virus, HIV, exclusive maker of death and destruction, and of all things visible and invisible.”

Statement of the Board of Rethinking AIDS
The Board of Rethinking AIDS, based on presentations at our RA 2009 conference, the years of experience some of our members have had caring for people suffering with illnesses labeled "AIDS" and through our extensive scientific research, call for true informed consent for every person before they are given an HIV test or prescribed AIDS drugs (Anti-retroviral therapy or ARV).
Informed consent can come only after people are told that false positive HIV tests can occur and cannot be distinguished from true positives. They must be told that, if diagnosed positive, they may face many years in jail for having a consensual sexual relationship and, if they have children, may be forced to give them toxic drugs or lose custody.
Although some clinicians have observed improvements during short-term therapy with AIDS drugs in some people seriously ill with fungal or bacterial infections, there is no clinical or scientific evidence that long-term treatment improves or extends the lives of HIV-positive people. Before prescribing AIDS drugs, these people must be informed of this and of the potential for debilitating and fatal side effects (that may be indistinguishable from AIDS-defining illnesses).
On this basis, given the lack of evidence that HIV causes AIDS, and because informed consent requires patient choice, the Board of Rethinking AIDS opposes any program that makes HIV testing or AIDS drugs mandatory or coercive — such programs are a violation of human rights. Our opposition includes all groups believed to be at greater risk, including mothers, people in the military, health care workers and prisoners.

AIDS DISSIDENTS ANNOUNCESAN FRANCISCO (Rethinking AIDS)
RA 2009 CONFERENCE PROGRAM
The Rethinking AIDS 2009 conference is proud to announce its program, including keynote speaker Michael Tracey
and a screening of the controversial new documentary House of Numbers
. Numerous scientists, doctors, activists and HIV-positive people will be in attendance from November 6-8th at the Waterfront Plaza Hotel in Oakland. Media are invited to all conference sessions including the film screening.
This conference will question all aspects of the HIV=AIDS=Death theory, including the accuracy of HIV tests, the safety and efficacy of AIDS drugs, the non-likelihood of sexual transmission, the social and legal consequences and even the very existence of HIV.
These skeptics claim HIV/AIDS is the biggest medical catastrophe ever adopted by the medical-pharmaceutical establishment. They have evidence that those supposedly dying of AIDS are really dying from pre-existing diseases, well-known health risks such as drug abuse and malnutrition, the psychological stress of a fatal diagnosis and the AIDS medicines themselves.
The conference's keynote speaker, Michael Tracey
, is a specialist in media issues, public broadcasting and "the injustice of the American justice system." Several years ago he said: The news about AIDS was flagrantly wrong in fact and interpretation, but hugely successful in constructing a prevailing understanding, locking into modern consciousness the belief that here was one more bug to threaten us all.
Be prepared to have your preconceptions about HIV and AIDS shattered at the screening of the controversial documentary House of Numbers
where both supporters and critics of the HIV/AIDS paradigm are shown contradicting themselves and widely held views.
Hear presentations and analysis from top scientists and medical professionals on the latest research on AIDS and why they have failed to create a cure, a vaccine, or even safe drugs...incredibly, the AIDS mainstream scientists are lost in a maze of conflicting results.
The media are invited to attend and listen to reports from all over the world and conduct interviews with some of the highly informed skeptics attending the conference.

Press Release — June 27, 2008WHO Says That Only Africa Has a Heterosexual AIDS Epidemic — Why?SAN FRANCISCO (Rethinking AIDS) June 27, 2008
— According to a June 8, 2008, report in The Independent

Why a heterosexual AIDS epidemic there and not here?
According to former leading WHO epidemiologist James Chin, it's because Africans are uniquely promiscuous, engaging in multiple, concurrent sexual relationships, and also because African men are uncircumcised.
Do scientific studies support the conclusion that Africans are an especially promiscuous people? And if the majority of males throughout the world are uncircumcised, why does naturally occurring male anatomy lead to AIDS only in Africa?

April 30, 2013

African scientists and policymakers should familiarise themselves with the body of literature that demonstrates the contradictions, anomalies and inconsistencies in the conventional view of Aids. Africa has suffered from numerous real wars over the past 30 years, but a prism called “the war on Aids” continues to distort its public health landscape. It is time for a critical look at Aids in Africa. African scientists and policy-makers should familiarise themselves with the literature that demonstrates the contradictions, anomalies and inconsistencies in the conventional view that the symptoms of Aids are caused by a single viral infection.
In 2012, activists organized a conference concerning HIV/AIDS issues in the village of Vers-Pont-du-Gard in the south of France. They produced a Declaration named after the famous Roman monument near the village where they met. They made the following demands
BOOK REVIEW: Denying AIDS; Conspiracy Theories, Pseudoscience, and Human Tragedy
fulfills Kalichman's duty as a government propagandist and pharmaceutical hit-man. Despite its academic patina, the book’s content betrays a lack of discipline or inclination that is typically required when asked to examine evidence in the unbiased and dispassionate capacity of a researcher, investigator or scientist....Just as Galileo threatened Rome's geocentric universe, Peter Duesberg threatens governments and politicians that rely on the corruption that permeates the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. Denying AIDS
is little more than a wheezing gasp from that dying enterprise."
— Marco Ruggiero
, a professor of molecular biology at the University of Florence and a Rethinking AIDS
board member, has filed a criminal lawsuit against anonymous accusers
: "In Italy defamation of this kind is a criminal offense, punishable by up to one year in prison. I sued them immediately...We have efficient police here in Italy and they will immediately discover the source of this."
— UC Berkeley professor denies link between HIV and AIDS: Three years after the announcement of the discovery of the AIDS virus in 1984, Duesberg published an article denying that HIV is the cause of AIDS.
He has since argued that AIDS results from recreational drug use and has advised those with the disease not to take antiretroviral drugs.
“I tell people, by all means, stop taking these drugs — they haven’t cured anybody yet,” Duesberg said.
The Rethinking AIDS Support Committee
January 2012 — Through a vote of the board members and voting members of Rethinking AIDS we are proud to announce the first nine members of the RA Support Committee.

May 6, 2011 — Tony Perkins, jailed on charges of sleeping with more than a dozen women and not warning them he had HIV, is insisting that no test has demonstrated that he has HIV, and is demanding a trial where he will be able to defend himself.
November 4, 2011, by David Reali — "...Some believe it had nothing to do with the genetic makeup of the stem-cell donor or even that AIDS, in general, has anything to do with the human immunodeficiency virus....One of the leading voices in the movement opposing the HIV/AIDS hypothesis is Dr. Peter Duesberg, a renowned virologist with a PhD in chemistry, currently working at the University of California in Berkley. He, and several other dissenters, formed a consortium of skeptics who – for reasons of facilitated comprehension and conciseness – will be referred to as The Group (The Group for the Scientific Reappraisal of the HIV/AIDS Hypothesis). These scientists have put their reputations on the line in order to pose some fundamental questions. While not questioning the existence of AIDS but rather the means through which it is acquired, they say that there is still no hard proof that HIV is responsible for AIDS..."

— Professor Henry Bauer

As a growing audience watches House of Numbers, it will be interesting to see how (or if) responsibility for this debacle gets assigned. Will it be possible to repair the damage some scientists have done to their profession?"

A Response to Critics
The Board of Directors of Rethinking AIDS reaffirms its complete confidence in our president David Crowe. Allegations and rumors to the contrary are groundless and completely false. The Board finds no fault with Mr. Crowe's handling of such issues as the 2008 letter to Science or providing assistance to the defense attorney in the 2006 Parenzee case. The recent baseless, ad hominem sniping on the Internet serves no constructive purpose other than to re-affirm the lack of intellectual rigor and equanimity of individual posters. Personal attacks detract from RA's efforts to undermine the toxic HIV/AIDS paradigm. The Board is always receptive to courteously framed suggestions and constructive scientific debate, but in future will ignore unbridled obscenity-laden untruths broadcast on the Internet.
