HIV and AIDS 101

What are HIV and AIDS?

HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. It is a retrovirus that causes HIV infection. Its entrance into the body lowers the immunity (body defense system) or the ability to fight off disease.
HIV Infection is the successful entry of HIV in the human host, weakening the immune system and leading to a spectrum of diseases.
AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. It is a condition characterized by a combination of signs and symptoms, caused by HIV contracted from another which attacks and weakens the body’s immune system, making the afflicted individual susceptible to other life threatening infection.

How does HIV attack the immune system?

1. The human body is protected by the White Blood Cells in the immune system.
2. White Blood Cells in the immune system fight disease and germs for your body.
3. Strong diseases make the body sick, but the white blood cells usually win in the end.
4. HIV is a VERY strong germ that attacks the White Blood Cells themselves, weakening the body's defenses against diseases and makes the body vulnerable to potentially life-threatening infections and cancers. HIV then uses human cells to manufacture more of the virus, eventually killing the host & nearby cells and overwhelms the immune system.
5. After a very long struggle lasting years, HIV kills most of the immune system's White Blood Cells, leaving the body unprotected.
6. Many other (secondary) diseases attack (bringing about the condition of AIDS) and eventually kill the body.

Solid Facts on HIV and AIDS

HIV is transmitted by:
• having unprotected sexual intercourse (vaginal, anal or oral), with someone who is HIV positive. Unprotected, penetrative sex accounts for 80% of total exposures to the disease worldwide;
• having a transfusion with infected blood;
• sharing syringes and needles with someone who is HIV positive for drugs and tattoos or other skin
piercing tools such as razor blades and surgical instruments for circumcision or scarification.
• mothers to their unborn babies and through breastfeeding.

HIV is NOT transmitted through:
• Kissing
• Casual contacts or handshakes
• Sharing living quarters, eating or drinking with an infected person
• Mosquitoes and bed bugs.

HIV is transmitted through the following body fluids:
• Blood
• Semen
• Vaginal/Cervical Fluids
• Breastmilk

Stages of the HIV Disease

Stage I: PRIMARY INFECTION
o The patient starts experiencing “flu-like” symptoms.
Stage II: ASYMPTOMATIC ILLNESS
o The patient may remain well for years.
Stage III: SYMPTOMATIC ILLNESS
o The patient experiences “mild” symptoms such as lack of energy, nights sweats, etc.
Stage IV: ADVANCED DISEASES (AIDS)
o The patient experiences opportunistic infections from bacterial, mycobacterial, fungal, protozoal, viral and malignant sources that can cause any of the following:
Swollen glands
Mouth infections
Brain infections
Skin diseases
Lung diseases
Loss of weight

HIV Detection and Testing

HIV can be detected through the following tests:
• Antibody test - an indirect test measures the response of one’s body to the presence of HIV
• Antigen test - a test that directly measures the virus

HIV Testing is voluntary, confidential and anonymous, with pre and post-test counseling. The window period for testing is 6 months from the last exposure with HIV.

There is NO vaccine and NO cure for HIV. Anti-retroviral medication (ARVs) may only slow down the replication of the virus.

The A-B-C-D-E of AIDS Prevention

A - Abstinence
B - Be faithful (having a mutual monogamous relationship)
C - Careful Sex (No exchange of body fluids)
D - Don’t share needles/ sterilized needles
E - Education and Information

  1. I beg to disagree with you. Some things you might want to consider.

    * "HIV" has NEVER been proven to attack T Helper cells (CD4). Currently, even the leading AIDS "experts" don't know how "HIV" causes AIDS. That's a fact.

    * "HIV" has NEVER been proven to be a sexually transmitted disease. See Padian Study. 175 "HIV" discordant couples studied for 10years, some using condoms consistently, some inconsistently, some DON'T and with ANAL. Result? ZERO SEROCONVERSIONS. NADA. NONE.

    * Transmission ratio of "HIV" is said to be .0001. Meaning you need to have AT LEAST A THOUSAND TIMES of unprotected sex with an "infected" partner to contract infection. Which means this is one of the hardest STD to be transmitted. Why all the fuss?

    * So called "HIV" tests DO NOT, i repeat, DO NOT test for "HI Virus" but for anti-bodies to supposed "HIV". "HIV" tests are NOT RELIABLE as a number of conditions (75 actually) including flu & hepa vaccinations, preganancy, herpes, etc can trigger a FALSE POSITIVE RESULT. http://hivskeptic.wordpress.com/2009/10/05/why-pregnant-women-tend-to-test-%E2%80%9Chiv-positive%E2%80%9D/

    * Western Blot is just as UNRELIABLE which is why the UK DOES NOT USE Western Blot.

    * "HIV" cannot explain the various diseases lumped under AIDS. Gut disorder can. See http://www.fearoftheinvisible.com/gutaids

    * Lastly, "HIV" has NEVER BEEN ISOLATED. Listen to the Nobel Laureate discoverer, Luc Montagnier. Meaning, NOBODY has ever seen what "HIV" looks like which is the reason why you get very different pictures of supposed "HIV".

  2. The original markers of AIDS are Pneumocistis Carinii Pneumonia and Kaposi's Sarcoma. These are markers that lumped the first 5 gay severely immune compromised patients had.

    PCP is now known to be caused by a fungi while KS is now said to be caused by Human Herpes Virus 8 (HHV8).

    It was also later found out that amyl nitrate or poppers, taken by gay men in bath houses during the early gay liberation years (mid 1970s), caused PCP. Hard drugs like heroin and cocaine, on the other hand, triggers KS.

    some other "interesting info";

    * Western Blot CANNOT be used on a person with an unknown "HIV" status.
    * PCR CANNOT be used on a person with an unknown "HIV" status.

    Why? Because they may result in a test that is reactive (WB) or with a high viremia (PCR) even for a non-"HIV" infected person. Can a pregnancy test be done on a MALE patient? Yes. Will doctors refuse? No. Will the result be negative? ALMOST ALL OF THE TIMES. Can the same be done to WB and PCR? NO and clinicians WILL REFUSE to give you those tests UNLESS they know you tested reactive on an ELISA test.

    * PCR / Viral load CANNOT be used to determine the presence/absence of "HIV" according to its creator, Nobel Laureate Kary Mullis

  3. To prove that "HIV" has never been isolated and that so-called "HIV" tests, which is really an anti-body test because it detects antibodies and not the HIVirus itself, are UNRELIABLE at best see how "HIV" lawsuits against "HIV-positive" people are being dismissed and/or dropped.

    Even "HIV/AIDS" experts when questioned in courts under the penalty of perjury cannot prove that "HIV" exists and that "HIV" tests are 99.999% reliable as what they would say when they're not under oath.

    The house under which "HIV/AIDS" was built will one day crumble, it will just take time but in the end it will change how Medical Science and Infectious Diseases forever. "HIV/AIDS" will be known as the greatest MEDICAL FRAUD that the Americans have given the world. It sounds crazy but if you look deeply and if you look through AIDS propaganda by pharmaceutical companies and self serving HIV/AIDS advocacy groups, you will realize the lies and half-truths behind everything "HIV/AIDS".

    Live your life as if you didn't test positive. Worrying about your CD4 is one of the BIGGEST mistakes you're making as it doesn't signify real health. Research deeply and look for other explanations aside from the mainstream "HIV experts". First question ask about CD4 is, Why do other countries (UK, Europe, Australia) do not use CD4 as a marker of AIDS progression?

  5. You see these "HIV" experts when called into question under the oath of perjury, CANNOT prove that "HIV" exists or was isolated. They CANNOT prove that "HIV" tests are reliable and that "HIV" is easily transmitted (.0001 trasmission ratio) which are primarily the reasons why the above cases were either dropped or dismissed.

    In time, the house under which "HIV/AIDS" was built will crumble and all of these "experts" will pay for the price. Thousands upon thousands of them will be sued. It will forever change how MEDICAL SCIENCE and RESEARCH will be conducted. It will be known as the GREATEST MEDICAL FRAUD that America has given the world.

    Read Gallo's Egg to find out why and how "HIV" was "packaged" and given as the reason for severe immune suppression experienced by gay people after the gay liberation of the 1970s.
