The most group of people that AIDS has been most prominently associated with is gay men. This is not very surprising when you look into the whole sociology of AIDS with a good realistic knowledge of the flaws in AIDS science. Of course, this is claimed by many to be because anal sex is more prone to transmitting the AIDS virus. That notion fails to withstand scrutiny on so many levels it's too big to go into here.
It fails to take into account, for instance, the experience of a medical officer in a South African men's jail who said that with typically 30 men to a cell, and that "sex is rampant, and condom use virtually non-existent", the jail has a rate of HIV+ diagnoses dramatically lower than that claimed for the general population of South Africa and virtually no deaths classified as AIDS in a seven year period. That does rather challenge the notion that it's men having rampant sex that is inherently the cause of AIDS - perhaps there has been some other difference in men having sex between groups of men in an African Jail, and groups of men on the gay scene in LA, SF, NY and London?
Could be. Anyway, long-time dissenting AIDS activist and gay man, Michael Geiger, recently drew up a list of 10 key essential points for survival from long-term observation of gay men that survived an HIV diagnosis, compared to those that died. In a strident letter to Charlie Fidelman, author of a snide and nasty article in the montreal gazette, Michael Geiger's 10 points for surviving AIDS for gay men are:
Clearly, there are some points here that others could benefit from too. let's hope that people do.
Hello Mr. Fidelman. A moment of your time, if you would be so kind. Regarding "Denialists" in your piece: "Deadly consequences of ignorance" in the Montreal Gazette, May 5th 2008:
As a person of Gay man, and as an AIDS dissident, or Rethinker of Jewish Descent, I must tell you that I am disgusted by your, and others equating of those who disagree with the highly contentious scientific evidence that HIV is the cause of AIDS, as being comparable to Holocaust Denialists. And particularly as your choice of the word "denialist" in the press comes across as pure propaganda. I am disgusted that you would abuse this word that is highly sensitive to Jewish people to propagate and propagandize your own, as well as others, obvious agendas.
As such, this letter is also CC'ed to many editors of the Jewish press and to Professor, writer, and cell biologist, Dr. Henry Bauer, who by the way is a noted Jewish writer and AIDS Rethinker, and to the many other Jewish AIDS Rethinkers and Jewish AIDS Dissidents who are also noted professors, scientists, doctors, members of the National Academy of Science, reporters, gays, and others.
Though, sir, you may question my, or others own sanity, however, after intensively studying the issue of AIDS causation and more, the fact is that I myself am not blind or ignorant.
After more then 30 years myself, of being an "out" Jewish descended homosexual in the gay community, since well before the word AIDS meant anything other then a teachers assistant, I myself have seen first-hand who gets sick, who dies, and who stays well and symptom free, including first-hand experience with many HIV positive friends and even lovers. Do you, sir, have any such personal experience?
What I myself have always over and again seen in those who survived as long term nonprogressors versus those who sickened or died prematurely, are people who had most of the following in common:
1) Not allowing themselves to be stressed to death after being diagnosed HIV positive on the highly flawed HIV tests.
2) Not caught up in drug addiction.
3) Have not overused antibiotics b/c of multiple std's
4) Have lower stress levels as they regard HIV aids mostly as hype.
5) Have expectations of health and well being instead of expecting sickness and death.
6) Avoid stressful T-cell and viral load testing.
7) Did not take AZT during the years of 87 to 95, and will not take current haart drugs.
8)Are psychologically well adjusted to their sexuality.
9)Are often health oriented with good diets and exercise.
10) Have families who are supportive of their sexuality.
As an out member of the gay community who has first hand knowledge and experience with HIV positives and those diagnosed as AIDS, I have clearly seen that the further people stray from these 10 "little" things, the more likely they are to eventually be chronically sick or even die prematurely. After all, liver failure, particularly in those who choose HIV drugs, has been the leading cause of death in HIV positives for the last 13 years.
Yes, Mr. Fidelman. Ever since AZT monotherapy ended in 1995, Liver failure has been the leading cause of death and is directly linked to those taking arv drugs. Prior to 1995, all HIV positives, caught in the web of mass hysteria that extended even to their doctors, survived an average of 8 months to 1-1/2 years on that toxic and deadly drug, that those in medicine and government and pharma business all well know, but would prefer the issue to be kept quiet, and disappear.
Am I really a holocaust denying, flat earthing fool of a "DENIALIST" because I recognize a different source and cause of the AIDS Holocaust then do you or others? Should my point of view be censored? Should it not be shared with others?
Nice of you to continue to be Mr. Wainberg's mouthpiece, as you have been in the past. As such you are far from unbiased in this issue, which as a reporter, IS YOUR DUTY!
The simple fact that you childishly use such words as "denialist" when describing those who don't agree with you, including many hundreds of thousands if not millions of people, clearly shows your work to be mere propaganda for AIDS Inc, and its overly funded researchers, and drug companies and stock holders. If truth was on your side, you would need no such ad hominem attacks.
But please tell me why Wainberg is so rageful of the hundreds of thousands who disagree with him? Is it because Mark Wainberg holds very valuable patents on some of the most very toxic of AIDS drugs and because profits from them as thousands upon thousands suffer predominently from liver failure, neuropathy, and extreme disfigurement from lypodystrophy directly due to his drugs. Or is it because he is a major stockholder in AIDS drug companies? Or is it because his mega funding from government and drug companies is now highly threatened.
And speaking of owning vast stock in aids drug companies, is there some reason that you have NOT shared with your readers that George Bush's right hand men, George Shultz, and Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld, are major stockholders, and Rummy himself was even the CEO of Gilead till he joined Bushy in 2001. No wonder Bush was so fond of promoting AIDS drugs for Africa! He has profited quite handsomely from Gileads Blockbuster AIDS drugs and Tamiflu for the Bird Flu Hoax, don't you think?
How nice of you, Mr. Fidelman, to point out that Miss Martineau is still alive and well after 12 years, even though she is now taking the highly toxic AIDS cocktail, that probably by the way contains either toxic AZT, or some of Mark Wainbergs disfiguring and toxic drugs. No wonder she is fatiqued and dealing with illness.
Are you, as a science/medical writer for some strange reason also unaware of the toxic effect of extreme stress that she is under due to her belief that HIV is slowly killing her and her daughter. Even your grandma knew enough to know that high stress levels intensely and negatively affect the immune system (including CD4 counts) and can eventually be lethal if one is stressed out long enough.
And I hope you realize, that sooner then you think, that Wainberg, as well as yourself, may soon be eating your words. After all, Dr. Peter Duesberg, who you seemingly slander and impugn, is now scheduled, and quite soon by the way, to testify to the US congress under the Whistleblower protection act.
Celia Farber, who you also seemingly slander by the way, and impugn, is next week receiving the "Clean Hands" award for her AIDS reporting, from the Semmelweis Society for honesty in Peer Review for Doctors.
And as for you, will YOU be receiving such an award when history is finally written? By the way Mr. Fidelman, how much have you profited from your many fear mongering stories about HIV or AIDS?
So, just when is enough fear mongering enough, Mr. Fidelman, and when does media, and its obviously biased reporters such as yourself, stop weakening gays and all others through fear mongering or encouraging gays or anyone else diagnosed as HIV positive to be victims instead of responsible for our own health and our own choice of beliefs including believing that HIV is the cause of why gay men prematurely sicken or die?
It might be nice if you would be so kind as to knock it off, will yah? Your still making us sick!
