Duesberg (Molecular biology/Univ. of Calif., Berkeley), an early researcher in the field of retroviruses, asserts that HIV, like virtually all retroviruses, is harmless.
He finds that HIV meets none of the usual criteria (such as the six laws of virology) used to establish that a microbe causes disease. But if that is so, why do scientists persist in saying that AIDS is an epidemic caused by HIV?
As Duesberg tells it, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention needed a serious epidemic to justify its continued existence, and by naming AIDS a single contagious disease, it created an atmosphere of public fear that brought it increased funding and power.
(NaturalNews) Canadian filmmaker Brent Leung isn’t winning any friends in the pharmaceutical industry these days. His breakthrough documentary “House of Numbers” features jaw-dropping interviews with doctors, researchers and even the co-discoverer of HIV himself (Luc Montagnier), all of whom reveal startling information calling into question the “official” explanation of HIV and AIDS.

Because of the game-changing statements heard from numerous health authorities in this film, it threatens the very foundations of the HIV / AIDS industry. Pharmaceutical companies are fronting a specific mythology about AIDS that maximizes their profits from AIDS drugs and (failed) vaccines, but that mythology is about to be dismantled when House of Numbers is released in theaters nationwide over the next few months.
This could be the documentary that shatters Big Pharma’s false paradigms about HIV and AIDS.
The AIDS testing hoax
In the film, Brent Leung subjects himself to an HIV test and discovers that a “diagnosis” of being HIV positive has more to do with the answers you provide to lifestyle questions than any specific microbe appearing in your blood. The diagnosis of AIDS — as well as the very definition — is also apparently so wishy-washy that increasing numbers of well-trained scientists are now questioning whether AIDS exists at all.
“The presently available data does not prove the existence of HIV,” says one health expert interviewed for the film. Another expert says, “The more diseases they could lump into these AIDS categories, the more patients they could catch.”
“I think HIV totally has turned out not to be the cause of AIDS. HIV has turned out not to be!” says another interviewee.
“We can be exposed to HIV many times without being … infected,” says Dr Luc Montagnier, the Nobel prize-winning virologist credited with the co-discovery of HIV. “Our immune system creates [antibodies] within a few weeks, if you have a good immune system.”
The documentary film exposes the sharp contradictions in current scientific opinion about HIV / AIDS. “As I started questioning scientists and delving further into testing protocols and statistical modeling and science, I began to see a lot of the contradictions that they had amongst themselves,” said filmmaker Brent Leung. “One of the things that became apparent to me is how important it is to question everything that we’re told and not automatically accept any fact as truth.”
One bizarre thing the film exposes is the ever-shifting definition of “AIDS.” In the United States, the official definition has been rewritten three times, and definitions vary widely around the world. AIDS isn’t simply the presence of the HIV virus; it’s a fictitious disease label that’s attached to a list of symptoms that continues to expand as the drug companies attempt to ensnare yet more victims into the AIDS label trap.
The experts sound off
House of Numbers is not a “fringe” film featuring dissenting opinions from conspiracy theorists. Rather, it is a lucid, intelligent collection of conversations with some of the world’s top virologists and Nobel prize-winning scientists, including former experts from the CDC, the WHO and UNAIDS. Many are speaking out against the conventional AIDS mythology for the first time on camera. Those interviewed for the film include Dr. Robert Gallo, Dr. Luc Montagnier, Dr. Michael Gottlieb, Dr. Joe Sonnabend, Dr. Kary Mullis, James Curran, Dr. Peter Piot, Dr. James Chin, Dr. Peter Duesberg and many others.
The film has already received “Best Documentary” and other awards from the many film festivals where it has been featured. Momentum is building for the film, and mainstream distribution looks like a healthy possibility for 2010.
“My main hope is that it educates people about the fact that this isn’t a clear cut issue,” says Leung. “I also hope it empowers people – that it causes them to question not just HIV and AIDS, but all facets of issues which impact our lives. I think we should further explore what we don’t know, and to welcome further discussion, because that will help us to know more and become more informed.” Learn more at www.HouseOfNumbers.com
My take on the film
I’ve served as the editor of NaturalNews for six years, and in that time, I’ve watched the pharmaceutical industry engage in rampant disease mongering in order to push their high-profit pills. They’ve done it with psychiatric disorders, high cholesterol and many other conditions. I’ve also watched how the cancer industry is based entirely on lies about some search for a “cure” even while most of the industry continues to push mammograms that actually cause cancer.
The AIDS industry has a lot in common with the cancer industry, in fact. They’re both based on scientific quackery. They both demand the dogmatic worship of a particular set of completely non-scientific “truths” that cannot be challenged, and they both focus on generating pharmaceutical profits at the expense of human health.
Also, both industries depend entirely upon the continuation of the disease they claim to treat. Where would Big Pharma be without cancer, AIDS and vaccines? Profits would fall sharply. So diagnosing as many people as possible with AIDS (and cancer) is an important strategy for boosting Big Pharma’s annual revenues.
After reading books on AIDS by Dr. Gary Null and others, I’m convinced that the official mythology about AIDS is a cruel hoax perpetrated by the drug companies. That doesn’t mean there aren’t people suffering from very real immune suppression disorders, but I believe it is far too simplistic to explain the root causes as being solely due to HIV. The entire HIV explanation is just a clever way to shift control over AIDS patients into the hands of drug companies where highly toxic chemicals are sold at ridiculous profits to people who are rarely helped by them.
The collection of immune suppression symptoms typically labeled “AIDS” could be far more effectively treated with naturopathic health strategies, including aggressive detoxification strategies, the removal of heavy metals, the avoidance of environmental synthetic chemicals (in foods, drugs, personal care products, homes and offices) and the addition of powerful immune-boosting herbs, foods and superfoods.
Essentially, AIDS can be cured in much the same way cancer can be cured: By radically altering food intake and lifestyle decisions to support a vibrant, healthy immune system.
Remember what Dr Luc Montagnier said in the film: “We can be exposed to HIV many times without being … infected. Our immune system creates [antibodies] within a few weeks, if you have a good immune system.”
In other words, AIDS exposure is not a death sentence (as Big Pharma would have you believe). It’s like many other viruses: A weakened, suppressed immune system gives it the opportunity to wreak havoc throughout your body, but a strong immune system allows you to overcome AIDS and build up your own immunity in a few weeks.
Essentially, being labeled “HIV-positive” is a tactic being used around the world to scare people into buying more high-profit AIDS drugs. But HIV-positive isn’t a death sentence, either. With the right immune-supporting solutions in place, even people who carry the HIV virus can live out a full life without any symptoms of AIDS.
What’s fantastic about House of Numbers is that it has the courage to challenge the status quo with much-needed critical thinking about HIV and AIDS. As such, House of Numbers is a daring yet brilliant foray into the realms of contradictory medicine where myth trumps science… and profits win out against human compassion. For such a powerful film to have been created by such a young filmmaker is remarkable in itself; and for any film to so courageously challenge the broken mythology of the AIDS industry is an accomplishment for which any filmmaker — at any age — should be widely recognized.
House of Numbers will rock the AIDS establishment and cause a whole new generation of thinkers to start critically questioning HIV / AIDS mythology (and the for-profit corporations that push it).
The AIDS myth exposed
The renaming of old diseases as AIDS further supports the hypothesis that the AIDS syndrome is never found in anyone without presence of HIV. By definition, there is no AIDS without HIV, regardless how many non-HIV people may die from the very same symptoms. Accordingly, anything that even remotely resembles immune deficiency plus HIV now counts as an AIDS disease, despite the fact that AIDS patients with Kaposi’s sarcoma have been reported to have normal immune systems. It has been argued that wherever there is HIV, AIDS will be the consequence. However, this argument is heavily flawed. – Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation by Andreas Moritz
Two of the 16 patients in the control group developed AIDS. In another study, 10 HIV positive patients without AIDS took 150-225 mg glycyrrhizin daily. After 1-2 years, none developed symptoms associated with AIDS or AIDS-related complex (ARC), while one of 10 patients of a matched control group developed ARC and two progressed to AIDS and subsequently died. The result of glycyrrhizin in HIV-positive and AIDS patients is almost immediate improvement in immune function. In one study, nine symptom-free HIV-positive patients received 200-800 mg glycyrrhizin in vitro daily. After 8 weeks.

It was obvious that the FTC was not interested in whether Immune Plus helped in the treatment of AIDS; they were only interested in curtailing its marketing. The FTC alleged that Immune Plus was being advertised as a “cure” for AIDS. At no time did True Health or International White Cross claim to have a cure. Test results in the Immune Plus ad were taken directly from the nutritional AIDS test, and True Health sold the exact same formula that was used in their AIDS test to International White Cross. – Innocent Casualties : The FDA’s War Against Humanity by Elaine Feuer
He sees AIDS as a sort of catch-all term that “spuriously links 29 (at last count) old and extremely heterogeneous AIDS indicator diseases together with a presumption of HIV infection.” Those who believe in AIDS as a new syndrome, he says, would have a case if, indeed, it were “a serious disease of acquired immune deficiency without preexisting or induced immune deficiency.” The problem is that “in all verifiable cases, demonstrable immune-suppressive disease and/or treatment have always preceded” the onset of AIDS.

In fact, he showed that HIV alone could not cause AIDS. Increasing evidence indicates that AIDS may be a toxicity syndrome or metabolic disorder that is caused by immunity risk factors, including heroin, sex-enhancement drugs, antibiotics, commonly prescribed AIDS drugs, rectal intercourse, starvation, malnutrition, and dehydration. Dozens of prominent scientists working at the forefront of AIDS research now openly question the virus hypothesis of AIDS.
– Cancer Is Not A Disease – It’s A Survival Mechanism by Andreas Moritz
When this happens disease runs rampant, as we see with the immune destroyer known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, or AIDS. People don’t die from AIDS; they die from diseases that their shot immune systems can’t deal with. Ironically, vaccinations are supposed to boost the immune system when, in truth, they undermine it. All the crap they put into vaccines is another attack that the immune defence has to cope with and this reduces its ability to meet other challenges effectively by making the DNA/RNA misfire.

In this study, the immune systems of mice were blocked by infecting them with a retrovirus that causes mouse AIDS and/or feeding them ethanol. They measured certain immune system functions, then gave them Pycnogenol and measured them again. Researchers found out that immune stimulators were increased, immune suppressors decreased, and natural killer cells were stronger. In other words, even when the immune system was barely working, Pycnogenol brought it back. Research in this direction may be very significant for those interested in the AIDS virus.

The AIDS hypothesis is more fundamental: the hypothesis that “AIDS” exists in any rationally definable way. “AIDS” was from the very beginning a phoney construct, the product of muddled thinking and hidden agendas. Under the obfuscatory rubric of “AIDS” lies the reality of people who are sick in diverse ways and for diverse reasons. The first cases were identified among gay men. (It was then called “GRID”, which stood for “Gay-Related Immune Deficiency”.) The CDC trumpeted forth the message that the gay men with “AIDS” had been incredibly promiscuous.

Duesberg also questions the proposition that the cause of AIDS is the retrovirus HIV. He has referred to the AIDS virus as a harmless “passenger” virus, just another virus among many living parasitically in the human body, and he claims that a positive HIV test is merely a viral marker (and not indicative of the cause) indicating immune system damage. In his opinion, based upon exhaustive research, AIDS is an immune deficiency disorder caused by overuse of recreational drugs and a lifestyle that burns the candle at both ends, including promiscuous sex. Eventually, the immune system collapses.

These statements may seem bold to the point of being outrageous to anyone who keeps up with the AIDS story by following it in the mass media. However, there is one thing that escalating predictions of the ravages of AIDS conveniently tend to leave out of their reports. That, in many cases, when a report of a sudden increase of AIDS patients is made, it is accompanied by a redefinition of what the disease is. Recall that people only die indirectly of AIDS. AIDS weakens the immune system and then they die of another disease, such as tuberculosis.

Numerous studies have also demonstrated that people who suffer from immune-suppressed conditions, such as AIDS, are often deficient in selenium. Exactly how selenium boosts the immune system is unclear. Researchers speculate that the immune stimulation may be due to selenium’s antioxidant activity and its ability to protect important immune-related tissues in the lymph system and the thymus against free-radical damage. Like vitamin E, selenium may also play an important immune-related role by protecting the integrity of cell membranes, thus improving their overall function.

We might say AIDS in Africa is being overcounted at both ends. To calculate the number of infected people, a fallible AIDS test is used; while to calculate how many people are dying of the immune deficiency disease, a large number of deaths that seem to have been due to other causes are attributed to the illness. Remember this fundamental point: People do not die from AIDS but from associated diseases that take over once AIDS has weakened the immune system.

The evidence clearly suggested that AIDS and other immune-related diseases manifested after the immune system had been compromised by a period of insults and debilitation, especially from daily diet. It also gave support to Michio’s larger perspective: that appropriate diet could do much to improve the strength of the body’s immune response. Since 1980, an explosion of information had occurred in scientific understanding of the immune system. Cottrell followed the developing medical literature closely; she also studied the existing research for links between nutrition and immune response.

A growing number of medical professionals are pointing toward the rebuilding of the immune power through nutrition and related natural therapies as the key to winning the battle against AIDS. In his book Healing AIDS Naturally, Laurence Badgley, M.D., recounts the stories of eight men who cured themselves of AIDS through a combination of natural therapies to rebuild immune power, focused heavily upon nutrition.

If HIV were the cause of AIDS, it would have to do this during the two phases of HIV infection where blood levels of HIV are significant: 1. Soon after infection when the immune system produces antibodies. 2. At the very end stage of AIDS when the levels of all viral activity increase because the immune system has collapsed (due other reasons than HIV infection). There is enough scientific data to show that HIV, being and remaining inactive even in AIDS patients, does not kill T-cells and, therefore, cannot cause AIDS!

Because of these and other discrepancies, there is much confusion and dissent about what AIDS really is and even if it is accurate to classify it as a disease entity. The common factor that all these disconnected symptoms and diseases revolve around is HIV. If HIV antibodies are detected, these diseases converge as AIDS; if not, then they are diagnosed simply for what they are. In other words, any degree of immune suppression in the presence of HIV is classified as AIDS. But the same degree of immune suppression in the absence of HIV is by definition not AIDS.

The early medical articles about AIDS cited 1970s articles that associated venereal disease and homosexuality. They came to see male homosexuality as a “medically problematic” situation (Epstein, 1988: 4). In the early 1980s, AIDS was understood by the medical community through two frames, both of which promoted a view of AIDS as a “gay disease.” The first frame, immune overload, saw AIDS as caused by immune deficiencies resulting from gay men’s perceived excessive lifestyle (especially anal sex, multiple partners, and drug use). This perspective had huge public health implications.

At the international AIDS conference in Montreal, according to a Newsday article, “several researchers expressed bewilderment about how HTV virus causes the chain of events that results in AIDS.” Luc Montagnier, the discoverer of the so-called “AIDS ‘David Zinman and B.D. Colen, “New AIDS Study Shows 1.2M to 1.5M Victims”, Newsday, 6 June 1989. vims” (aka HIV-1) urged shifting the focus of research away from the virus to the human body’s defense mechanisms. “We need to understand much more basic things about the immune system before we can move forward any further”, he said.

And the mathematician Weyer demonstrated that AIDS epidemiology refutes the hypothesis that HIV is the sole cause of “AIDS”. Press coverage of the panel reflected the type of censorship that obtains whenever AIDS orthodoxy is threatened. Stories in the New York Times (22 June 1990) and the Washington Post (22 June 1990) discussed Montagnier’s talk at length, but didn’t even mention Lo or Weyer. Peter Duesberg spoke on “Dissociation of the Epidemiologies of HIV & AIDS” at the Advanced Immune Discoveries Symposium (about which more later) at Le Meridien Hotel.

Another report also noted low serum zinc levels in those with AIDS but not other stages of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infection. A child with AIDS was found to have all the signs and symptoms of a zinc-deficiency disorder. It is still unclear why these AIDS patients have low serum zinc levels. What is clear is that this aspect of the AIDS problem should be vigorously pursued. These exciting findings justify further clinical trials to determine the effects of supplementary zinc on the immune system and in the treatment of immune disorders such as AIDS.

Formula for Chronic Viral Syndromes (HIV Infection, ARC, AIDS, Herpes, CMV, EBV) Note: By now, virtually everyone has heard of AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). What many do not know is that AIDS does not have to be fatal. There are those with AIDS who have survived in relatively good health for several years now. An ever increasing number are surviving longer and longer. The secret is to pay attention to details. These include diet, exercise, stress reduction, use of supplements, immune enhancers, anti-viral agents and taking steps to prevent the diseases associated with AIDS.

It is important to note that while all people with AIDS are HIV-positive, not all people with HIV develop AIDS. Most HIV-positive people develop AIDS within eight to twelve years after first contracting the virus, but some develop it much faster, and many others still remain healthy decades after contracting HIV It appears that people who are able to ward off full-blown AIDS are those whose immune systems are the strongest. Therefore, complementary therapies for HIV and AIDS work to bolster the ability of the immune system to fight infection.

Abdullah says the discovery has implications for not only infections and cancer, but also for AIDS, in which immune functioning fails. Garlic, he says, might rev up immune defenses in AIDS patients; it also may directly combat the many fungal-type infections AIDS patients fall prey to. Dr. Abdullah is convinced lower doses of garlic boost immunity, too, but he deliberately used a big dose to make sure he got an effect. He is planning tests using garlic on AIDS patients.

To overpower AIDS, you might have to destroy the entire AIDS-infiltrated immune system; after all, antibiotics, in their attempt to destroy a single specific microbe, indiscriminately kill everything, including resident friendly bacteria. But if you destroy the immune system, you’ve killed the patient faster, even more efficiently than AIDS. If you go after the secondary, opportunistic infections (KS, CMV, Pneumocystis carinii) with strong antibiotics and chemother-apeutics, you may destroy a radically underachieving immune system and the patient as well.
