The precursor to AIDS is Human Immune Deficiency
Virus. HIV is a very resilient retro-virus.
After an adult is infected with HIV, he or she
usually has no obvious symptoms for 5 to 10 years. During this time,
however, the virus is slowly attacking the immune system. When the immune
system is weakened enough, it becomes susceptible to other organisms that
the body can usually fight off or keep under control.
AIDS - As the name implies, severely damages the
immune system allowing many opportunistic organisms to flourish and cause
disease that would normally be kept in check. Viruses, bacteria, fungi, and
parasites, all cause a long list of terminal afflictions from cancers to
If you contract AIDS the odds of you actually
surviving it are not approaching zero, but rather, they are zero (0.00%)…
Theoretically, HIV need not advance your death
(lets face it we’re all going to die one day!), but if the link between HIV
and AIDS is determined then you should be able to live a relatively healthy
lifestyle by watching and promoting your immune system… not unlike
diabetics monitoring their blood sugar.
Dr. Charles Thomas, former Professor of
Biochemistry, Harvard and John Hopkins Universities:
"The HIV-causes-AIDS dogma represents the
grandest and perhaps the most morally destructive fraud that has ever been
perpetrated on young men and women of the Western world." (Sunday
Times (London) 3 April 1994)
Dr. Joseph Sonnabend, New York Physician,
founder of the American Foundation for AIDS Research (AmFAR):
"The marketing of HIV, through press
releases and statements, as a killer virus causing AIDS without the need
for any other factors, has so distorted research and treatment that it may
have caused thousands of people to suffer and die." (Sunday times
(London) 17 May 1992)
Dr. Mohammad Ali Al-Bavati, Toxicologist and
"HIV does not cause AIDS. There is no
scientific evidence that HIV can kill infected T4 cells. The true problem
is that the leaders of the HIV hypothesis have been ignoring important
medical facts and are blindly attributing AIDS to the HIV virus. It is very
sad and frustrating to know that the AIDS establishment are giving highly
toxic drugs such as AZT to pregnant women even with studies that show the
depression in the immune system can be reversed by nutrition. Prescribing
anti-viral drugs to AIDS patients is like putting gasoline on a fire"
Dr. E.W. Taylor, Dr. Luc Montagnier, Harold
Foster (my publisher) and many others have documented evidence that leads
to a very strong hypothesis… this co-factor is a deficiency of a vital
mineral that is paramount to our healthy immune systems.
The depletion of the ozone, deforestation,
chemicals in fertilizers (such as sulphates, nitrogen and phosphorous),
pollution, acid rain etc. have ALL contributed to severely reducing a few
major minerals from entering our food chain.
Selenium (Greek selene,"moon"),
symbol Se, semimetallic element with an atomic number of 34. Selenium is in
group 16 (or VIa) of the periodic table.
discovered in 1817 by the Swedish chemist Baron Jons Jakob Berzelius in a
sulfuric acid residue. It was so called because it was found in association
with tellurium (Latin tellus,"earth").
Selenium is an essential trace mineral in the
human body. This nutrient is an important part of antioxidant enzymes that
protect cells against the effects of free radicals that are produced during
normal oxygen metabolism. Selenium is also essential for normal functioning
of the immune system and thyroid gland.
Selenium seems to be a crucial nutrient for
HIV-infected individuals. It is a potent inhibitor of HIV replication in
vitro. . . More than 20 papers report a progressive decline in plasma
selenium in parallel with the on-going loss of CD4 T cells in HIV-1
infection. This decline in selenium occurs even in early stages of disease
when malnutrition or mal-absorption cannot be a factor. In fact, plasma
selenium is a strong predictor of the outcome in HIV infection.
Baum and colleagues showed that
selenium-deficient HIV patients are nearly 20 times more likely
(p<0.0001) to die from HIV-related causes than those with adequate
levels . . . Baum and colleagues showed that low plasma selenium is a
significantly greater risk factor for mortality than low helper-T-cell
count, by a factor of 16, and confers a more significant risk than
deficiency of any other nutrient investigated."
Hepatitis: "Selenium also appears to be
protective in individuals infected with hepatitis virus (B or C) against
the progression of the condition to liver cancer."
Pancreatitis: "In a small controlled trial
in Rostock, Germany, intravenous administration of selenium to patients
with acute necrotising pancreatitis reduced mortality from 89% in controls
to zero in the treatment group."
Cancer - Some studies indicate that mortality
(death) from cancer, including lung, colorectal, and prostate cancers, is
lower among people with higher selenium blood levels or intake. Also, the
incidence of nonmelanoma skin cancer is significantly higher in areas of
the United States with low soil selenium levels.
Skin cancers were studied in seven dermatology
clinics in the US from 1983 through the early 1990s. Supplementation with
200 mcg selenium daily did not affect recurrence of skin cancer, but significantly
reduced total mortality and mortality from cancers. In addition, incidence
of prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, and lung cancer was lower in the
group given selenium supplements
Heart Disease-There is a strong association
between a lower antioxidant intake with a greater incidence of heart
disease. Additional lines of evidence suggest that oxidative stress from
free radicals may promote heart disease. For example, it is the oxidized
form of low-density lipoproteins (LDL, often called "bad"
cholesterol) that promotes plaque build-up in coronary arteries.
And a warning: "We must be careful not to
encourage over-consumption of selenium supplements. While an intake of
selenium of around 15 micrograms/kg bodyweight per day is thought to be
without prolonged impact on human health, it must be remembered that
selenium is a toxic mineral with a fairly small therapeutic window.”
“In some sensitive individuals, the maximum safe
dietary intake may be as low as 600 micrograms per day. NOTE: That is 12
standard 50mcg pills you can purchase in the drugstore!

forever, but there is substantial evidence that supplements will extend
your life longer and healthier!
