Positively False: Exposing the Myths Around HIV and AIDS
by Joan Shenton
Shows the HIV=AIDS=Death dogma which has wrongly acquired the force of certainty to be riddled with flaws, but is driven relentlessly by pharmaceuticals companies and the ambitions of unscrupulous scientists protecting research funding. As a consequence, the process of scientific inquiry is derailed and billions of dollars misspent, while millions in the Third World falsely classified as AIDS victims who "are going to die anyway" are denied treatment for their true ills, brought on by poverty, deprivation, and malnutrition. Joan Shenton is a television medical journalist whose work has been featured in 49 documentaries on health issues for the BBC, Channel 4, Thames TV, and Central TV, 7 of them on HIV/AIDS. Two of her films on AIDS have received the Royal Television Society Journalism Award and a British Medical Association award.
"Joan Shenton has written a highly readable book and spared no effort in researching her topic . . . surely it is time this very basic question of HIV and AIDS was addressed in an open and non-biased manner."
     -- Professor Beverley Griffin, Imperial College (School of Medicine), London

". . . AIDS is far from being the disaster which was forecast. This book will help those who are interested and affected to understand why, and to be more realistic about the special pleadings which still outshout other medical priorities."
     -- Gordon T. Stewart, Emeritus Professor of Public Health, University of Glasgow
