A Book by Joan Shenton
In the 30 years since ‘HIV’ was announced as the “probable cause” of AIDS we are no closer to a vaccine or cure. Scientists and clinicians who question the widely held belief that ‘HIV’ is the cause of AIDS hold fast to their position that multiple factors can be attributed to the illnesses defined as AIDS which continue to afflict specific communities and risk groups, and that billions of dollars and millions of lives have been wasted over a retrovirus that is either harmless or may not even exist.
This 16th Anniversary Edition of Positively False: Exposing the Myths around HIV and AIDS from award-winning tele-journalist Joan Shenton features the original late 1998 text with updates and contributions from 20 journalists, writers, scientists and clinicians who present critical arguments challenging the current scientific orthodoxy. They include: Henry H. Bauer, Christian Fiala, Neville Hodgkinson, David Crowe, Celia Farber, John Lauritsen and David Rasnick.
Also features the script of the 2014 documentary Positive Hell and renowned molecular biologist and pioneering critic Peter Duesberg et al.’s withdrawn 2009 paper for Medical Hypotheses.
“A gripping, timely, story of investigative journalism with analysis of the flaws in HIV/AIDS theory: that would still be an accurate description of this book, some fifteen years after it was first published.”
Henry H. Bauer, Professor Emeritus of Chemistry and Science Studies, and Emeritus Dean of Arts and Sciences, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech).
