Reappraising AIDS 

The monthly publication of

The Group for the Reappraisal of the HIV/AIDS Hypothesis 

The Group's members include medical scientists, physicians, and other professionals from around the world who encourage a serious and open reconsideration of the HIV explanation of AIDS. The Group's members have identified solid scientific reasons to conclude that: 

  • HIV may be entirely harmless.
  • People diagnosed with "AIDS" may be sick not from HIV infections, but rather from other factors, such as one or more of the following:
    1. Direct or indirect effects of recreational drug consumption.
    2. Immunological exposure to foreign proteins, such as through hemophilia clotting factor therapy and blood transfusions.
    3. Impoverished living conditions.
    4. Toxic chemotherapy with "anti-HIV" pharmaceuticals such as AZT and protease inhibitors.
    5. Psychosomatic terror inspired by a positive HIV diagnosis.
  • Within the AIDS risk groups, AIDS conditions may be common even in people who test HIV negative. This indicates a need to look beyond HIV in order to explain AIDS, and a need to reconsider the official AIDS definition, which limits diagnoses to patients with presumed or diagnosed HIV infections.
  • Pharmaceuticals prescribed to treat HIV infections may actually cause some cases of AIDS.
  • Most people who test HIV positive may have no active HIV infections, including many AIDS patients.
  • Contrary to the public health message that "everyone is at risk for HIV and AIDS," the vast majority of even sexually active Americans have no significant risk of either.
  • Public officials, medical scientists, and social activists may have accepted the infectious HIV/AIDS model with out properly scrutinizing it.
  • Public officials, medical scientists, and social activists may have dismissed alternative models without properly considering them.
  • Public officials, medical scientists, and social activists may have created an environment in which their peers feel unable to express conclusions that contradict the HIV explanation of AIDS, for fear of severe political, professional, and social penalties.
The Group formed in 1991 in support of a letter urging a scientific reappraisal of the HIV-AIDS model. No medical journal would publish this letter, even after hundreds of physicians, scientists, and other professionals endorsed it.
