Author and scientist Dr Henry Bauer invites reviews of his book “The Origin, Persistence and Failings of HIV/AIDS Theory” (McFarland 2007) at WikiChecks.
I was led through a by-the-way remark in a “dissident” HIV/AIDS book, and subsequent astonishment as I looked at the original source, to collect essentially all the published data on HIV tests in the USA. The demographics are stunningly regular, during more than two decades. The rates of positive tests, in any given group, vary uniformly with age, sex, and race, and the geographic distribution has remained unchanged; moreover it’s the same for different “risk” groups: blood donors, gay men, injecting drug abusers, military personnel. As to race, the differences are close to quantitative, roughly Asian 0.3–0.6 with White arbitrarily 1; Native American ~1.5, black more than 5. As to age, “HIV+” rates increase from adolescence into middle age and then decrease again; males test HIV+ more often than females except in the early teens.
Global data show the same regularities as to age, race, and geoography.
No infectious agent is distributed so regularly and without variation over time.
That’s the essence of the case in Part I of my book, “The Origin, Persistence and Failings of HIV/AIDS Theory” (McFarland 2007), but the book also reviews in Part II the history of mis-steps in medical science to illustrate that mainstream consensus can be quite wrong, and Part III recounts crucial steps by which HIV/AIDS went wrong. The book’s web-page, http://failingsofhivaidstheory.homestead.com/, has links to published reviews of the book, all favorable (as are those at amazon.com); relevant articles, news items, and seminars; and errata (so far, pleasingly few). Three of the articles downloadable as PDFs contain much of the demographic data in Part I of the book.
I’ve been blogging at http://hivskeptic.wordpress.com to illustrate how the book’s viewpoint stands up to recent news items and scientific publications, and through that came upon another data set that disproves the mainstream contention that there is a latent period of about 10 years between “infection by HIV” and AIDS. The same data set, deaths from “HIV disease” since 1987 (disaggregated by age and race and sex), shows that antiretroviral treatment has been of no life-extending benefit, again contrary to mainstream contentions; details at â€œHIV DISEASEâ€ IS NOT AN ILLNESS,
