An introduction to the history of the aids epidemic

As a result, the FDA shortened the drug approval process by two years. KS enters Y2K still riddled with many questions.

A google search, using the key words "man made origin of AIDS," will elicit 1, citations to various web sites. The green monkey theory was scientifically doomed from the very start, although that apparently did not phase the scientists who undoubtedly wanted to place the blame on the dark continent -- and take the origin of HIV out of Manhattan, where the first cases were discovered inand push the origin to the other side of the world.

I cannot say that it actually happened, but I have been saying for some years that the use of live vaccines such as that used for smallpox can activate a dormant infection such as HIV the AIDS virus.

The fate of the gay men in the gay experiments The purpose of the gay experiments was to test a vaccine that could immunize people against hepatitis B virus.

Further studies were then initiated to design and evaluate testing sites and methodologies to evaluate the weapons.

In the process myriads of new, laboratory-created mutant, hybrid and recombinant viruses were created, some of which were exceedingly dangerous. At a symposium on leukemia research inDanish pathologist J Clemmesen warned that the transmissibility of these genetically -altered viral agents could cause a world epidemic of cancer if they escaped from the laboratory.

Army Biological Warfare Program" yields only 44 citations. The lab also prides itself by releasing "rehabilitated" but virus-infected chimps back into the wild, perhaps accounting for some of the ancestors of HIV and the KS virus found in the jungle by some government researchers.

The success of that form of experimental treatment has led to a percent drop in cells providing refuge to latent HIV cells, but the completion of their testing and evaluation is not due to be completed for at least another 10 years.

Why is this theory deemed paranoia by the media and the AIDS establishment? During this same period the Special Virus Cancer Programnow largely and conveniently forgotten, was established to coordinate the search for cancer-causing viruses.

Animals will always provide a reservoir for viruses that could threaten human populations in the future. This type of pneumonia, the CDC noted, almost never affects people with uncompromised immune systems. When the first antibody test for HIV became available, it was found in frozen blood samples that had been saved from a hepatitis B study in the late s, showing the parallel to hepatitis B.

However, polio vaccines given to millions of people in the 50s and 60s were heavily contaminated with a cancer-causing monkey virus called SV simian virus The development of research, treatment, and prevention Azidothymidine, also known as zidovudine, was introduced in as the first treatment for HIV.

Unlike the American vaccine makers, the Dutch researchers heated their experimental hepatitis B vaccine for added safety. In this period, betweenandpeople could have already been infected. A case in point is Gallo's reported "discovery" of a "new" and "human" virus reported in scientific journals as "HL The smallpox vaccine allegedly awakened a "dormant" AIDS virus infection in the black population.

Male circumcision had little to moderate effect in their simulations, but, given the geographical correlation found, the authors propose that it could have had an indirect role, either by increasing genital ulcer disease itself it is known that syphilischancroidand several other GUDs have higher incidences in uncircumcised menor by permitting further spread of the HIV strain, after the first chains of sexual transmission permitted adaptation to the human organism.

InPresident Barack Obama lifted a U. Here, we go through the key historical moments that have defined the HIV epidemic over the past 30 years.

By the end of that year, 2, deaths in the U. Naturally, there is no complete record of what this Virus Cancer Program has achieved or what cancer-causing and immunosuppressive animal cancer viruses were adapted for biological warfare use and for covert military testing on human populations.

Sharpand their colleagues proposed that "[the epidemic emergence of HIV] most likely reflects changes in population structure and behaviour in Africa during the 20th century and perhaps medical interventions that provided the opportunity for rapid human-to-human spread of the virus". With the recent introduction of three-drug combination therapies, that progression has been slowed another 50 to 80 percent when compared with the two-drug treatments.

S cities has never been revealed. By the end ofthere were more than 20, reported cases of AIDS, with at least one case in every region of the world. My KS research was never mentioned in any of his papers.HIV/AIDS is a global pandemic. As ofapproximately million people are living with HIV globally.

Inapproximately half are men and half are women. There were about million deaths from AIDS indown from million in The Global Burden of Disease Study, in a report published in The Lancet, estimated that the global incidence of HIV infection peaked in History.

In memoriam: Dr. Mathilde Krim, amfAR’s Founding Chairman, and Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Founding International Chairman. amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, is one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to the support of AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and advocacy.

Researchers who claim AIDS is a man-made disease believe it is much more likely that these two primate viruses were introduced and spread during the government’s recruitment of thousands of male homosexuals beginning in The epidemic of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS)—which was recognized in the United States incontinues today, and will continue into the foreseeable future—mirrors epidemics of the past.
