Please watch this video and forward it to as many others as you are able. It is longer than most videos posted to blogs, about 16 minutes long, but it is worth every minute. In the video, researchers and health care professionals from around the world explain why they believe that it is not AIDS which is killing Africa at all. In fact, the insistence that it is AIDS is what is killing Africans by the thousands now and will kill Africans by the hundreds of thousands and even millions in the future.
We have been hearing for years now from the World Health Organiztion (WHO) and UNAIDS that AIDS is responsible for the deaths of millions of people on the African continent. What most people do not know is that based on WHO guidelines developed in the mid-’80s, people in Africa and other Third World countries are often given an AIDS diagnoses when they have two major symptoms — weight loss, chronic diarrhea or chronic fever — and one minor symptom, like coughing, fatigue, or generalized itching. In Africa, in other words, if you present to a medical clinic with diarrhea, a fever and a cough, you are likely to be diagnosed as having AIDS. This is called the “Bangui Definition”.
In poor areas of Africa, like Sub-Saharan Africa, the majority of people lack the basic essentials of life: food, water, and adequate sanitation. For this reason, they often develop chronic diarrhea. When they have had chronic diarrhea for a while, they lose significant weight; at that point they have two of the “major symptoms” of AIDS by the Bangui Definition. Additionally, malaria, tuberculosis, dysentary – epidemics throughout Africa for many years , long before the beginning of the AIDS epidemic anywhere in the world– are also characterized by fever, weight loss and such “minor symptoms” as coughing and fatigue. In some African countries, Tanzania being one, medical professionals have limited the diagnosis criteria even further, so that just presenting with one major symptom, like weight loss, might mean being diagnosed as HIV positive or as having AIDS.
The treatment for all of the diseases and symptoms listed is good food, clean water, and proper sanitation, and in the case of malaria, mosquito nets and inexpensive medications which work to treat malaria. When First World nations — which had the money to do so — invested funds in sewers, proper sanitation and clean water, tuberculosis, dysentary and malaria became largely a thing of the past. African nations by and large do not have the money to invest in this infrastructure, and the money they do have is being diverted to AIDS education, condom distribution, abstinence campaigns and toxic AIDS pharmaceuticals, some of which (like AZT) are known to in fact cause AIDS. One of the researchers who testifies to this on the video is a long time AZT researcher.
We are constantly hearing of estimated numbers of AIDS cases in Africa and estimated deaths from AIDS in the multi-millions. In fact these numbers are computer estimates extrapolated by combining approximately 4,000 blood tests per year which have been given to pregnant women. The combined blood from these blood tests is given the “Elisa” test for HIV antibodies. But the HIV-antibody tests used in these surveys are known to come up positive based, again, on cross-reactions with antibodies produced from malaria, TB and parasitic infection — all common conditions in Africa. The test manufacturers themselves warn that pregnancy is a known cause of false positives.
One horror of all of this is, to visit a medical clinic with a fever or weight loss, or just a fever or just weight loss, in most African countries, may mean being diagnosed with AIDS, a terminal illness, may mean being given a death sentence, in other words. Given the few medical supplies available and the fact that western doctors say AIDS is a terminal illness, most of the time, people diagnosed with AIDS are simply sent home to die. In some places they are given toxic, life-threatening AIDS drugs which hasten their deaths.
Doctors in the video describe the way administering basic, common and inexpensive medications for diarrhea, cough, and fever prolong the lives of African people. They describe the way very often, those who receive the AIDS diagnosis are shunned by their families and communities, sent to live in small huts on the outskirts of villages and given small amounts of food. Under these conditions, of course, people with malaria, or dysentary, or AIDS, or even chronic diarrhea, will die. Even in developed countries with adequate sanitation, children, babies, the elderly, the ill sometimes die from diarrhea.
An additional horror is, mothers diagnosed with AIDS or as HIV positive via this ”Bangui Definition” are told to stop breastfeeding and to feed their children formula. This is done on the grounds that HIV is transmitted in breast milk, although again, the HIV/AIDS diagnosis may be based on having only one to three symptoms very common to a huge number of people in Africa. This is yet an additional boon for drug companies which then serves to further compromise immunity for a highly vulnerable population, infants and toddlers, depriving them of the immunities which might help them to withstand the poor health conditions many of them face growing up. A mother’s immunities are passed along to her child in her breast milk.
There is tremendous resistance to “AIDS dissent” in part because so much money is involved — not money for clean water, or healthy food, or sanitation, but money for “AIDS education,” condoms, toxic drugs, infant formulas. Of course, if people can be held responsible for their own diseases (if they’d just received AIDS education, used condoms or fed their babies formula, they and their children wouldn’t be sick), then the money which is going to these condoms, AIDS education, drugs, formulas will never be used for what is truly making Africans and other Third World People sick: poverty. Not having the basic necessities of life. And I cannot but think that this is racism in one of its most deadly forms, this treating of African and Third World people as though the epidemics and sicknesses they suffer are the result of their unsafe sex practices! It is nothing short of genocide we are witnessing here.
If you doubt what I have written here, please watch the video, then read all of the articles here in this thread in the Africa Speaks forum. And if you think this kind of thing could not happen in the U.S. or the West, think again:
If the AIDS story in Africa feels like a parody of a bureaucratic blunder, take note: In April of this year, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced a new HIV testing strategy for the United States. Rather than relying on voluntary HIV-testing, federal officials are urging the testing of all pregnant women in the US, and are implementing measures to make HIV-testing a routine part of hospital visits. The CDC is promoting a rapid HIV-test for use in all federally funded clinics, as well as homeless shelters, prisons and substance abuse treatment centers.
The HIV-antibody tests are known to cross-react with antibodies produced during pregnancy, drug abuse and nearly 70 other common conditions, and no HIV test is FDA approved to diagnose HIV infection. The standard medical treatment for HIV infection is a combination of the most toxic drugs ever manufactured. (from the link above).
