AIDS In Africa--A Report That Doesn't Get Circulated
From A Doctor In The Field
I received this from Frank Lusardi:
The paper which Dr. Marc Deru presented at the European Parliament Conference in Brussels is now on the web site of Dr. Roberto Giraldo at http://www.robertogiraldo.com/brussels/Deru_2003.html
Summary: In Tanzania, the population of the Kagera region, epicentre of AIDS 15 years ago, hasn't ceased growing since then, i.e., with a 53% increase between 1988 and 2002.
The demographic catastrophe expected as a result of the "deadliest epidemic in history" did not materialize, on the contrary. Yet, no real, concrete anti-viral measures were applied in the region. The only explanations for this lie in the improvement in the economic conditions and in development aid. An example of a global approach to development is found in the NGO, Partage Tanzania.
While the experts, with their statistics, would have one believe that there exists an extremely serious HIV/AIDS epidemic, no trace of an epidemic is observable in the field. All that can be seen is a very poor, under-nourished population suffering from malaria, endemic immunodeficiency and common illnesses.
The so-called "HIV" tests are unspecific; the positive results they may give are misleading and lead to the false belief in the existence of a viral epidemic. Common sense and scientific reason dictate their abandonment as well as a return to the objectivity of clinical diagnosis and to the treatment of clinically visible illnesses, all of which have been known for a long time.
The facts very clearly demonstrate that the endemic African immunodeficiency has nothing to do with a hypothetical "HIV", but is, rather, the result of malnutrition and its corollaries. In order to provide effective help to Africa, the priority should be given to the eradication of the overly great poverty which exists there.
