AIDS Denialists Plan Another Conference: Are AIDS Scientists Welcome?

AIDS Denialism Comes Back to Washington DC.
The non-profit scientific organization Rethinking AIDS has set Dec 1, 2011 for a worldwide conference to challenge the mainstream paradigm that AIDS is an infectious disease. The conference location will be Washington, D.C. Presenters will discuss possible causes for a lowered immune system apart from the single virus theory currently being imposed as a dogma. Medical specialists will discuss alternative treatments for the conditions that may be considered "AIDS" in HIV-antibody-positive people. 


The conference will call for a dramatic reduction in AIDS spending. In the context of the national budget crisis, spending on AIDS is disproportionate to the number of patients who have fallen ill particularly as the spending is killing people, not curing them. $25 billion was spent on AIDS in 2010, but the 'epidemic' has never expanded beyond small groups within the gay and drug user communities. 


A further focus of the conference will be on challenging the validity of the AIDS HIV tests. It is commonly believed that testing positive for antibodies believed to be from HIV means that a the virus is present in the blood of the patient and that the patient has AIDS. Neither is true. But patients are often frightened into taking the dangerous and expensive anti-viral medications. 


In other news Rethinking AIDS has added a new member to their board of directors, Dr. Marco Ruggiero, a board-certified medical doctor and clinical radiologist. He is a full professor of molecular biology and genetics at the University of Firenze, Italy where he teaches in the Faculties of Medicine, Sciences (chemistry, biology and biotechnology) and Engineering. He spent two years as post-doctoral fellow at Burroughs Wellcome Co. (Research Triangle Park, NC, USA) in 1984-86, where he had the opportunity to collaborate and publish with Nobel Laureate Sir John Vane. 

Dr. Ruggiero subsequently spent three years as post-doctoral fellow at the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology of the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD, USA, sharing the office with Professor Duesberg as he was visiting the Laboratory. Afterwards, he spent two years as Lab Chief at the Sigma-Tau pharmaceutical company in Milan, Italy. 

Dr. Ruggiero became associate professor of molecular biology at the University of Firenze in 1992, and full professor in 2002. The research of Professor Ruggiero deals with the study of the molecular mechanisms responsible for cell transformation, signaling and death in different human pathologies from cancer to AIDS. The results of his research have been published in peer-reviewed, PubMed-indexed, scientific journals and in book chapters.

In a recent talk at an Italian conference, Dr. Ruggiero speaks of present day AIDS as a scandal and a hoax, a creature of the pharmaceutical-medical complex. He stated that the drugs that are used to treat AIDS cause cancer. He claimed billions are uselessly spent in search of a vaccine for AIDS. 

Dr. Ruggiero stated that in the past three years definitive evidence has accumulated demonstrating that HIV cannot be considered the sole cause of AIDS. For example, a ten year meta-analysis of anti-retroviral therapy published in the Lancet showed that, although the medicines decreased HIV levels, they did not decrease the rates of AIDS or death. Ruggiero concludes that the virus does not cause AIDS, but instead arises as a result of a lowered immune system, thus reversing the cause-effect relationship between HIV and AIDS. 

Dr. Ruggiero referred to Nobel Prize winner Luc Montagnier who stated that someone with a healthy immune system can be exposed to HIV many times without being chronically infected. It is possible for someone infected with HIV to get rid of the infection by naturally building up their immune system, without the use of anti-viral medicines.

  1. Marco Ruggiero?

    Not this Marco Ruggiero by any chance?

    Which one is he in the Rethinking AIDS Group Photo?

  2. So many things wrong with that press release. They can not even validate a damn press release.
    They write:

    1. "Medical specialists will discuss alternative treatments for the conditions that may be considered "AIDS" in HIV-antibody-positive people."
    There are already "treaments for the conditions". But they are not talking about tried and true treatments. I guess they are speaking of treatments like HBOT for CMV! That seems to be working really well for Stokely!

    2. "...but the 'epidemic' has never expanded beyond small groups within the gay and drug user communities."
    Really? Maggiore and Stokely belong to which group? Please tell me. And Eliza Jane belonged to which group? They also completely ignore hemophiliacs and the people in Africa! Oh, that's right, there is no issue in S. Africa since "births outnumber deaths"!!

    3. "...challenging the validity of the AIDS HIV tests." Oh, this again! Yeah, Christine Johnson has done real well with this issue. NOT!

    4. "...in the past three years definitive evidence has accumulated demonstrating that HIV cannot be considered the sole cause of AIDS. For example, a ten year meta-analysis of anti-retroviral therapy published in the Lancet showed that, although the medicines decreased HIV levels, they did not decrease the rates of AIDS or death."
    This must be the May et. al. study again which has been proven beyond reasonable doubt that the AIDS Denialists have completely misrepresented that study. Oh, and it was not "three years ago" that study was published!

    5. Lastly, they also demonstrate their extreme hypocrisy. One of the credentials they brag about regarding Ruggiero is that he was a post doctoral fellow with Burroughs Wellcome Co. Isn't that Pharmaceutical company part of "Big Pharma"? And isn't "Big Pharma" the anti~christ?

    It's one thing to put out a press release full of lies and hypocrisy, it's another thing completely to back up those lies.

    Will they have medical specialists like the esteemed Clarkie Baker? Will there be 2 empty chairs in the front row, for Kim Bannon and Karri Stokely? Doh.

  4. You left the best bit off the press release, Seth.

    "Among RA's founders and key members are... physicist Eleni Papadopulos-Eleopulos of the Royal Perth Hospital in Australia"

    It's heartwarming to read that Mrs Papadopulos and friends have finally sorted out their "irreconcilable scientific and ethical differences" with RA.

  5. JTD, you missed his role as Lab Chief at Sigma-Tau. This company produces a drug called Carnitor, which is used to treat secondary Carnitine deficiency, which is associated with (among other things) "HIV infection or antiretroviral therapy".

    So, Ruggerio claims that AIDS is "a creature of the pharmaceutical-medical complex" while overseeing the manufacture of Carnitor. Nice.

  6. They happily reveal that they don't even know what a meta-analysis is.

    Clowns, in a circus of death.

  7. Why all the fuss? Why not go, have a few hors deuvers and hear what these folks have to say? Sheesh, I listen to people who disagree with me all the time.

    Peace out, Clowns.

    Awaiting further details and planning on it.

    I enjoyed the Aneuploidy Conference. Looking forward to seeing all of my old buddies.

    At least we know it wont be at that shit hotel in Oakland.

    Hoping Rasnick will come..but DC could be too
    close to the IRS for his comfort.

    Nevertheless, I am brushing up on my German so
    I can understand more of the side conversations.

    See ya there!

  10. Could someone Link me to the Lancet Study they are referring to? I would like to read it myself. Instead of eat anything and everything RA throws in my direction. I think we all secretly want HIV to be a huge misunderstanding but i think its important to research every claim they make...Lancet has also done studies to prove the Meds DO help HIV paitents...so theres that....

    Here it is...
    HIV treatment response and prognosis in Europe and North America in the first decade of highly active antiretroviral therapy: a collaborative analysis The Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) Cohort Collaboration
    Lancet 2006; 368: 451-58

    Read the -- not the just the last line of the abstract! AIDS Deniers use the last line of the abstract...
    "Virological response after starting HAART improved over calendar years, but such improvement has not translated into a decrease in mortality." but are unable or unwilling to read the paper.

    Why don't they use this quote?
    "The discrepancy between the clear improvement we recorded for virological response and the apparently worsening rates of clinical progression might be related to the change in the demographic characteristics of study participants, with an increasing number of patients from areas with a high incidence of tuberculosis."

    They are not that stupid at Rethinking AIDS. But they are that psychopathic.

  12. Isnt the last line pretty much the summary? Im not trying to be rude. Im not all that intelligent haha. Could you explain to me why your quote of choice refutes the first?

    How do you explain how so many of us are living healthy without the HAART, if HIV is the cause of AIDS? Especially persons such as myself who had full-blown AIDS. And why is HIV not in any one's blood?

    I do appreciate the fact that you will print opposing viewpoints
