HIV/AIDS Denialism - What Causes Hiv And Aids
By: Disease, Medicine, and Health Portal - 3/18/2015
HIV/AIDS denialism is the belief, contradicted by conclusive medical and scientific evidence, that human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) does
not cause acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Some denialists reject the existence of HIV, while others accept that HIV exists
but say that it is a harmless passenger virus and not the cause of AIDS. Insofar as denialists acknowledge AIDS as a real disease,
they attribute it to some combination of sexual behavior, recreational drugs, malnutrition, poor sanitation, haemophilia, or the
effects of the drugs used to treat HIV infection.
The scientific consensus is that the evidence showing HIV to be the cause of AIDS is conclusive and that AIDS-denialist claims are
pseudoscience based on conspiracy theories, faulty reasoning, cherry picking, and misrepresentation of mainly outdated scientific
data. With the rejection of these arguments by the scientific community, AIDS-denialist material is now targeted at less
scientifically sophisticated audiences and spread mainly through the Internet.
