    World Focus: Ebola, Human Rights and Poverty Making the Links
    Tuesday, October 28 @ 13:51:01 UTC
    MedicalBy Alicia Ely Yamin
    October 28, 2014 - opendemocracy.net


    The catastrophic Ebola crisis unfolding in West Africa offers many lessons, not least for global anti-poverty efforts. These will culminate in a set of targets, to be agreed by the United Nations in 2015, known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    First of all, the crisis should lead to a re-think of the triumphalism that has marked some of the global health debate in recent years, with some projecting a “grand convergence within a generation” between North and South, rich and poor countries, based upon the “end of preventable mortality, including from infectious diseases”.

    "It is not a coincidence that, in addition to the legacy of colonial exploitation, and pillaging by their own corrupt and unaccountable governments in recent history, Liberia and Sierra Leone are two countries that have been ravaged by brutal civil wars." Second, neither universal health insurance, without real access to public health as well as effective care, nor cash transfers, without connections to functioning systems, would have thwarted Ebola or the social devastation it is wreaking. Yet both are highly touted solutions to global poverty, and likely to be part of the SDG agenda.

    Inside U.S.A.: The Gay Experiment That Started AIDS In America
    Monday, December 05 @ 20:29:28 UTC
    MedicalBy Alan Cantwell, M.D

    There is no doubt that AIDS erupted in the U.S. shortly after government-sponsored hepatitis B vaccine experiments (1978-1981) using gay men as guinea pigs. The epidemic was caused by the "introduction" of a new retrovirus (the human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV for short); and the introduction of a new herpes-8 virus, the virus that causes Kaposi's sarcoma, widely known as the "gay cancer" of AIDS. The taboo theory that AIDS is a man-made disease is largely based on research showing an intimate connection between government vaccine experiments and the outbreak of "the gay plague"

    The widely accepted theory is that HIV/AIDS originated in a monkey or chimpanzee virus that "jumped species" in Africa. However, it is clear that the first AIDS cases were recorded in gay men in Manhattan in 1979, a few years before the epidemic was first noticed in Africa in 1982. It is now claimed that the human herpes-8 virus (also called the KS virus), discovered in 1994, also originated when a primate herpes virus jumped species in Africa. How two African species-jumping viruses ended up exclusively in gay men in Manhattan beginning in the late 1970s has never been satisfactorily explained.

    World Focus: Rumsfeld To Profit From Bird Flu Hoax
    Wednesday, October 26 @ 19:48:42 UTC
    Medicalby Dr. Joseph Mercola, globalresearch.ca

    We bring to the attention of Global Research readers this important commentary by Dr.Joseph Mercola.

    The fundamnetal issue is who owns the intellectual property rights over Tamiflu. The media reports suggest that the Swiss pharmaceutical company Roche will make billions.

    While the drug is produced by Roche, it was developed by Gilead Sciences Inc.which owns the intellectual property rights. Gilead, which has maintained a low profile, has outsourced the production to Roche.

    Medical: The Origin of AIDS: an Ethical Inquiry
    Tuesday, April 12 @ 00:01:41 UTC
    MedicalBy Edwin Krales

    New York City

    Whenever the question arises about the origin of AIDS, two positions are usually staked out. One is that AIDS was invented in a laboratory by a group of Western scientists in order to kill black people and gays. The other position is that it was an unexpected development, completely out of anyone's control, not intended to harm any group in particular. In the February/March edition of POZ, an HIV/AIDS magazine published in the U.S., Lucile Scott wrote that Nobel Peace Prize winner and Kenyan ecologist Wangari Maathai said that "AIDS is a tool to control [Africans and black people] designed by some evil-minded scientists." Because of the way her comment was presented, it was clear that POZ didn't share her view. POZ asked five people prominent in the AIDS field to comment on what she said. POZ did not say what criterion was used to pick the five.

    Africa Focus: Debunking The Out Of Africa Origin Of HIV & AIDS
    Wednesday, January 05 @ 17:14:37 UTC
    MedicalThe Greatest Conspiracy Story Ever Told

    By Alan Cantwell, M.D.
    January 01, 2005


    AIDS is now more than a quarter-century old. The disease has killed 20 million people worldwide, and it is estimated that 40 million more are infected with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), the virus that causes AIDS.

    Ask your physician where AIDS came from and he or she will probably tell you the epidemic started when monkeys or chimps in the African bush transferred the AIDS virus (HIV) to a person while butchering primate meat for food or through an animal bite. For the first two decades of the epidemic the green monkey theory of AIDS was widely heralded in the major media, and was accepted without question by leading AIDS experts and educators. The theory was so universally popular (except in Africa) that it easily became fact in the minds of most people.

    Caribbean: Cuba's Response to AIDS
    Thursday, November 11 @ 22:50:26 UTC
    MedicalA Model for the Developing World

    By Edwin Krales

    In April 2003, Cuba hosted FORO 2003-"the second forum on HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases in Latin America and the Caribbean." This was a crucial conference. Except for Cuba (0.7%), the Caribbean has the 2nd highest rate of AIDS in the world (2.3%) after sub-Saharan Africa (9%). During the 6-day conference, 1483 delegates, worldwide, made dozens of presentations.

    There was no U.S. delegation, but there were U.S. presenters. I was in Havana delivering needed medical supplies. Since 1990, I have been a nutritionist with the U.S. HIV community. In 1993 I began collecting donated surplus medical supplies for Cuba. I presented a paper on HIV/AIDS and body composition using state of the art Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis technology (BIA). BIA measures body cell mass (BCM), water, fat and other compartments in your body. Loss of more than 46% of normal BCM is incompatible with life. A unique BIA measurement, the phase angle (PA), best indicates long- range survival potential in the HIV infected. PA measures "strength" of an individual's cell membranes by changes in electrical conductivity. Healthy cells have higher PA than sick cells.

    Medical: For Sale: A DNA Test to Measure Racial Mix
    Wednesday, October 02 @ 16:21:05 UTC
    MedicalBy Nicholas Wade, NY Times

    A company in Sarasota, Fla., is offering a DNA test that it says will measure customers' racial ancestry and their ancestral proportions if they are of mixed race.

    Claiming to be "the world's first recreational genomics testing service," the company, DNAPrint Genomics Inc., says its test will be useful for people interested in their own origins as well as for more practical purposes, like "to validate your eligibility for race-based college admissions or government entitlements."

    Medical: Secrets of Aids 'immunity'
    Friday, September 27 @ 04:55:39 UTC
    MedicalSept 26, 2002, BBC

    Scientists have identified why some HIV patients are immune from developing full-blown Aids. It has been known for some time that around 2% of HIV patients were protected in some way.

    But now, American and Chinese researchers have identified a group of proteins in the body which naturally block HIV developing into Aids. They say the discovery, detailed in the journal Science, could lead to better understanding of how the body fights HIV, and could potentially lead to the development of new treatments.

    Medical: Haemophilia a rare, expensive disease
    Tuesday, September 24 @ 01:22:16 UTC
    MedicalBy Tim Chigodo, www.herald.co.zw

    Haemophilia is a rare, yet expensive and painful disease. The pain and agony of living with this debilitating disease is a nasty experience.

    Very few Zimbabweans understand what it takes being haemophiliac.

    Chido, not his real name shouts and jumps with joy each time his team-mates score.
