Serious Adverse Events: An Uncensored History of AIDS
by Celia Farber

     A collection of twenty years of AIDS reporting, many of the pieces updated and revised, by journalist Celia Farber, who has stood up to and defied fury and vicious personal attacks from orthodoxy apologists for her tenacity and refusal to be deflected from pursuit of truth.

The topics covered include protease inhibitor drugs and their toxicity, AIDS patients who test HIV-negative and, simply, whether HIV causes AIDS.

"One of the most tragic stories of the AIDS crisis is the excoriation of those--journalists, researchers, patients--whose voices are silenced by a 20-year orthodoxy of media hype, drug money and scientific stardom. Journalist Celia Farber, deemed controversial and an HIV denialist by many, has spent two decades reporting the dark, greedy history of AIDS..."
