Could it be that we are getting closer to a (more) unified alternative explanation for what causes “AIDS”? There are several recently published articles, as well as conversations between the authors, that just may prove to be the impetus for such a epiphany.
This is not about some startling new discovery. It is the work of lay people wading through the scientific literature and gleaning and assembling already documented knowledge and information in ways that most orthodox scientists simply seem incapable of doing.
Most recently, Liam Scheff has published another great piece of writing, How AIDS Didn’t Become a Kissing Disease, which further challenges the mainstream explanation for AIDS.
In the article, Scheff presents official government definitions for what retroviruses are as he wanders through the history of “HIV”. He notes Matthew Gonda’s discovery of “HIV” in the saliva of healthy and ill gay men in the 1980s, though no self-respecting AIDS risk reduction educator today would suggest that HIV can be transmitted by kissing or even oral sex. Gonda incidentally co-authored scientific articles with the now discredited discoverer of HTLVIII/LAV/HIV, Robert Gallo.
The article concludes that what Gallo and others were seeing are actually Human endogenous retroviruses, or HERVs; self-made cellular messengers that our bodies create in reaction to stressors and toxins, the same way scientists create them in the lab. Scheff suggests that nutritional responses can suppress the expression of HERVs.
Other writers have written about issues of gut dysfunction and exposure to toxins that are entirely compatible with the theory that HIV is a HERV. What remains to be done, in my personal opinion, is to tie these various perspectives together and to present a unified alternative theory of AIDS that can be understood by a fifth grader.
Until that happens, those readers who are struggling to understand the significance of a positive test result owe it to themselves to read the collection of writings by Schell and Cal Crilly at reducetheburden.org, as well as the essential and related information contained in Tony Lance’s paper, Gay Related Intestinal Dysbiosis. It really isn’t that difficult to make the connections for oneself, but it does take some time and effort and for most people, it also requires some de-programming to allow the mind to accept new information.
As an Affected gay man, I struggle mightily to explain what I’ve learned to friends and others who find themselves in a similar situation. That job is nigh-impossible as long as people remain uninformed and in the dark. When I worked for the New-Telegraph in the 1980s and 1990s, the masthead read: “Knowledge is Power”. Nothing could be truer today.
