Propaganda and Hypotheses: What Do We Really Know About AIDS?

by Christine Maggiore Tuesday, Mar. 20, 2001 at 8:23 PM

I am profoundly disappointed with progressive, critical thinkers who stop thinking critically when it comes to AIDS.

AIDS is a new name for an ever-expanding list of previously known and unrelated conditions that include yeast infections, diarrhea, tuberculosis, salmonella, certain pneumonias and cancers. These conditions are only called AIDS when a person tests HIV positive, but all of these also happen to people who test HIV negative, and all have well-known causes and treatments that are completely unrelated to HIV.

AIDS varies from country to country and year to year. In January of 1993, government AIDS officials in America declared that people who test HIV positive and have a low T cell count
