The Origin of AIDS: VIDEO – Most Important Documentary You’ll Ever Watch January 8, 2007

We now know with an almost certainty where the AIDS virus came from, thanks to a theory that is only now beginning to emerge. You’ve probably never heard any of this before, and so a lot of it should seem questionable. However, I would like to stress that this video (posted below) is not one of conspiracy, and that is the only reason why I allow it on this site. I do not go for conspiracy theories. In my experience, the simplest explanation is usually correct (Occam’s Razor) and elaborate plots to deceive millions do not fit that criteria. As proposed in this video, AIDS results from an accident, due to an oversight, in a zealous charge to eliminate another deadly virus from the world; something infinitely more plausible.

In the 1950’s, a doctor by the name of Hilary Koprowski developed an experimental Polio vaccine within the Belgian Congo (what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo) in Africa. The requisite human medical trials involved the inoculation of approximately 1 million people with that test vaccine. It is proposed by this video that, because the vaccine was produced using the kidney’s of local Chimpanzees, one or more batches were accidentally contaminated with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), a variant of Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV), common amongst Chimps, and the precursor of AIDS. Its an hour and half, but if you have the spare time, I highly recommend this documentary as the most solid argument for the cause of the greatest epidemic of our times….

Eventually this study was denounced by the World Health Organization as “an example of the way in which not to conduct trials of this nature.”

I have to say that HIV is one of my biggest phobias, so I both love and hate reading & learning about it.

Very interesting!

HIV/AIDS in the Asian Region

After 25 years of HIV/AIDS prevention efforts considerable knowledge has been accumulated regarding how the spread of HIV/AIDS can be controlled. It is necessary to block the transmission of the virus by changing the behaviour of people who are most at risk of contracting HIV infection and of transmitting it to others. The main approach to prevent sexual transmission are convincing people to delay or abstain from sex, to have fewer sexual partners and to use condoms in order to reduce the likelihood that sex between an infected and uninfected person will lead to an infection.

HIV/AIDS is not new to the Asia. More than two decades into the epidemic, the situation of HIV within Asia continues to grow at an alarming pace, with one person dying every minute due to an HIV related disease. With moderately 10 Million people living with HIV/AIDS, the impact of the epidemic can be devastating. The “Rainbow Nari O Shishu Kallyan Foundation” identified four major approaches in a groundbreaking study on spread out HIV in Asia. This study undertook by comparing of social-economic norm, family pattern, economic dependency, cause of mounting sex industries, gender discrimination status & global analysis fact. There are four factors that appear to play a crucial role in HIV transmission in Asian countries: Injection/ intravenous drug use (By sharing needle), female sex work (Due to lack of safe sex knowledge), gender discrimination (which indirectly force females commercial or non-commercial sex), Same sex/ homosexually/ Hijara (Due to lack of HIV/AIDS information, because they act invisible in this society). Poverty & illiteracy fueled it proportionally.

Overall, the countries in the region are considered to be in the early stage of the epidemic with the exception of Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand which are experiencing generalized epidemics—a generalized epidemic is one where 1% of the population are HIV positive. The prevalence is growing in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, China, Vietnam and Indonesia, with epidemics concentrated largely among vulnerable populations such as sex workers, intravenous drug users and men who have sex with men. The bulk of the burden of HIV is on poor people, marginalized communities, the youth and women.

In this region, there are some superstitions about HIV/AIDS. This can be found in other countries too. Suppose, one-third people of China think that by using bathrooms, towels, plates and glasses of AIDS patients, HIV can be infected. Remember, it is not true certainly. The virus has been found in saliva in a small percentage of infected people, but usually this is late in the stage of the disease when you would not expect people to be too sexually active. After HIV enters the body, it attacks the immune system in stages. A person with HIV can infect others once the virus enters the bloodstream.

In the past few decades, the Asia has witnessed unprecedented economic growth and a rise in living standards. However, it has brought to the region disturbing concerns such as increasing levels of economic disparity, income poverty and new forms of deprivation. In addition, challenges such as conflicts, various forms of exploitation and discrimination, and gender inequality continue to mark the region’s socio-economic and cultural landscape. The fact that about 600 million people in the region live on less than US$ 1 a day testifies to the stark reality that a large majority of people in the region are still disempowered, with limited or no access to resources or information that would improve the lives.
