HIV Denial

Tag archives for HIV Denial

Quick recap– An HIV Denier, Clark  Baker, starts a web group, the ‘HIV Innocence Project‘ to defend people accused of HIV-related crimes. Name-change to ‘HIV Innocence Group’ after the Innocent Project complained. An HIV advocate, Todd Deshong, started a different website, ‘HIV Innocent Group Truth‘ to address and expose Clarks activities. DeShongs coverage is rather innocuous– What…

HIV Deniers silence YouTube critic

YouTuber MylesPowers1985 has got an in-depth analysis of  the HIV Denier movie, ‘House Of Numbers’, going. Of the episodes I saw, it is really good. Its not the usual boring ‘person talking to a camera’ video– it is serious investigative journalism. I say ‘of the episodes I saw’ because MylesPowers1985s videos are being taken down by…

Another HIV Denier dead…

… From an infection that generally only affects those who are immunocompromised. *surprise* You all might remember me talking about Tommy Morrison: HIV-1, HIV Denial, and boxing HIV-1, HIV Denial, and boxing: Round 2 HIV-1, HIV Denial, and boxing: Round 3 Morrison died last week, at the age of 44. “That’s the way Tommy took…

HIV-cure-woo alive and well in Africa

There are some HIV-woo ideas that I cannot believe we are still dealing with in 2012. 1. ‘Condoms dont stop HIV’ – Actually, they do.  Really, really well.  Better than any ‘prophylactic antiretroviral’ (with no side-effects).  Virus cant evolve resistance to condoms.  Virus cant swim through the tiny holes in the structure of latex.  Condoms…

Another HIV Denier dead

Via jonnyneviripine: Maria Papagiannidou died last Sunday. Another very public and active denialist has kicked the bucket; sad but predictable. Her face and “story” is all over the internet. You can read more about her there. I know she contacted some people I know about starting HAART but presumably she left it a bit late.…

I think the unofficial Favorite Journal of ScienceBlogs has got to be the journal, Medical Hypotheses. It used to be, you could take two different approaches if you wanted to publish in Medical Hypotheses. 1– Smash your face into your keyboard for 15 minutes. Submit for publication. Or, the less expedient 2– Leave your laptop…

HIV-1 Denial News

Do you want the good news first, or the bad news? I like to get the bad news first, usually, because then the good news can cheer me up. So, the bad news: Kim Bannon has Passed Away (back-story on Kim Bannon) HIV-1 Denial claimed another life. It was reported that (HIV-1 positive) HIV-1 Denier…

HIV-1, HIV Denial, and boxing: Round 3

While practicality is one of the tools in my arsenal against anti-science advocates, its not my favorite. Maybe its because I am a delicate female with doe-eyes and sweet sensitivities, but my favorite weapon is emotion. I tell you what, its damn hard to talk to the general public (much less wooers) about the intricacies…

HIV-1, HIV Denial, and boxing: Round 2

So I was just alerted by a reader that the Montreal Gazette just published a rebuttal to the HIV Denial POS they published a few days ago. Dr. Norbert Gilmore takes an angle I like: Practicality. We deal with it all the time with wooers– its easy for HIV Deniers or Creationists or anti-vaxers to…

HIV-1, HIV Denial, and boxing

HIV(+) status and sports is a big deal. Any time there is a non-negligible risk of a bloody nose (golf or swimming vs soccer or basketball), there is a risk someone is going to get a blood droplet in the eye. Another player, a ref, a coach, a spectator, a beer vendor– yes, the odds…
