AIDS: A Second Opinion
by Gary Null & James Feast

Gary Null Ph.D., is a nationally syndicated talk show host and producer of PBS specials,consumer advocate, investigative reporter, New York Times best-selling author, and an award-winning documentary filmmaker; also, one of America's leading health and fitness writers and practitioners. In this book, compiled from interviews with over 5,000 scientists, researchers, and journalists, he explores facets of the subject ranging from alarmist statistics to the asserted African origin of AIDS,and the half-truths that some say have marred the study of the disease from the start. He concludes that the one-cause, one-disease “virological” model is obsolete, and should be replaced by a broader and more realistic paradigm of health and sickness.

Amazon.com review--quoted in its entirety:

Gary Null's AIDS: A Second Opinion is a book that I could not put down. I found it to be the most comprehensive, insightful, provocative, and disturbing book on AIDS that I have ever read. And as someone who has counseled numerous patients with AIDS, I found that it offered valuable insights into the politics and controversies surrounding this condition. (I should mention that I am not coming from "the fringe," but am a graduate of Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, an assistant clinical professor of neurology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and the author of more than 50 articles published in peer-reviewed medical journals. So I read the book with the critical eye of one who has been immersed in the mainstream medical world.) Null and co-author James Feast do us a service in giving voice to the point of view of AIDS dissidents such as Nobel laureates Drs. Mullis and Gilbert, as well as Professors Strohman and Rasnick, and the many others cited in the book. One has to wonder, why hasn't their collective challenge to the "HIV equals AIDS equals death" paradigm been given more publicity? These are credentialed people, and there certainly is, as this book shows, reasonableness to their claims. I myself have had three patients with advanced AIDS and substantially debilitated health who then undertook various natural protocols and improved their overall immune function significantly. So why wouldn't I want to explore alternative approaches to this condition? Why wouldn't I want to review as many scientific references as possible that support these approaches? I am happy to have a book on hand that goes beyond the party line of those who run the war on AIDS, looks at alternative perspectives, and provides extensive documentation to support them. Furthermore, I plan to make this book required reading for all of the persons I counsel with AIDS-defining illnesses. And I would recommend it to every concerned and conscientious physician, nurse, and public health advocate in the country.
