Origin

The origin of HIV is uncertain and is still the uncertain. The virus, originally thought to be perculiar to homosexual men, has puzzled the scintific community since its discovery in the early 1980s.(5)

Recently, a growing number of scientists around the world have publicly denounced the HIV/AIDS hypothesis, questioned the validity or the HIV test, and criticized the use of the retroviral drug, AZT, which they argue has been proven to be toxic and responsible for making HIV/AIDS patients sicker and eventually leading to their death.(6)

One group of scientists who spent years developing a reliable testing aparatus believe the virus originated from wild chimpoanzees in a remote corner of the West African country of Cameroon. The firsrt human known hIV infection was a man from Kinshasa, Congo, whos blood had been stored in 1959 as part of a medical study, decades before scientists knwe about the AIDS virus.

The disease is thought to have spread when someone in rural cameroon was bitten by an infected chimpanzee or was cut while butchering one.(7)

This is the most commonly accepted theory. Normally, scientists theorize, the hunters body would have fought off the virus, but it is thought that that on a few occasions it mutated and adapted to its human host.(8)

Controversy

One school of thought believes that the AIDS epidemic was inadvertently spread to human beings when modern science developed a cure for paralytic poliomeliatis. Scientists at the time are believed to have used the kidneys of wild monkeys, probably originating from Africa, to produce live-polio-vaccine used to fight polio.(10)

However, analysis conducted in April 2000 on the original samples used to develop the polio vaccine revealed that they were not contaminated by any strain of HIV or SIV, the shimpanzee strain of the virus. A second analysis revealed that kidneys used to develop the polio vaccine were retrieved from macaque monkeys which are incapable of being infected with the HIV or SIV virus.(11)

According to Alan Cantwell M.D.:

There is no question that HIV was introduced into the U.S. male homosexual populaton by the gay hepatitis B vaccine experiment that took place between 1978 and 1981. My research clearly supports the outbreak of AIDS cases in Los Angelis and San Fransisco shortly after the experiment began in these cities. Not surprisingly, the government has refused to release data on the number of AIDS deaths that have occured in the large group of gay men who initially volunteered for the vaccine experiment.(12)
