The Cause of AIDS: Theories

Mainstream doctors and popular media would have us believe that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) causes AIDS; however, there is no consensus in the scientific community that this is tru.

Mainstream doctors and popular media would have us believe that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) causes AIDS; however, there is no consensus in the scientific community that this is true. Whether the virus is the cause of autoimmune deficiency is an important issue because millions of dollars are poured into HIV-related AIDS research. Many people are taking potent, toxic drugs to combat the virus. Moreover, while the western world has developed new AIDS drugs, people in developing countries are becoming the target for lethal drugs, such as AZT.
Lifestyle Theory
According to many respected scientists, people weaken their immune systems and develop AIDS through engaging in risky behaviour that encourages overuse of antibiotics and nitrites, intravenous drug abuse, malnutrition, multiple transfusions and recurrent viral infections (several of which--hepatitis B, herpes simplex, Epstein-Barr--correlate as highly with AIDS as HIV). In Perspectives of Biology and Medicine (Summer 1990), Robert Root-Bernstein noted that all AIDS patients experience several of these immunosuppressive factors and that no AIDS patient has only HIV as a risk factor. In many cases, infants with AIDS suffer the same symptoms as infants of intravenous drug abusers. In other words, the mother has passed her lifestyle risks on to the baby.

A Population Plague
Another theory is that AIDS is a ghastly plague that was created in a laboratory to reduce the rate of the world's population growth. This is according to the Common Cause Medical Research Foundation, which produced a special AIDS issue in its Journal of Degenerative Diseases (May 2001). Military and medical interests in the United States have apparently researched, developed, tested, produced and deployed the AIDS pathogen as biological warfare against less developed countries. The foundation cites evidence that the Pentagon's chief researcher asked Congress in 1969 for $10 million to develop a new weapon "for which no natural immunity could have been acquired"--namely, AIDS.
