Dr Peter Duesberg, the virologist-turned-campaigner, is wrongly using tendentious arguments to confuse understanding of AIDS and those in danger of contracting the disease. He should stop. 
Duesberg and the right of reply according to Maddox- Nature
In 1993 John Maddox, the editor of Nature, commissioned a commentary refuting the hypothesis that drugs cause AIDS (Ascher et al., 1993). The piece described 215 patients each of which had used drugs
Critical analysis of the current views on the nature of AIDS
This research attacked the theory that the basis of AIDS is HIV-mediated cytotoxicity for infected CD4+ cells, which causes strong dysfunctions of the immune system due to the depletion of CD4- pool of lymphocytes.
The Viral Model for AIDS: Paradigmatic Dominance, Politics, or Best Approximation of Reality?

The question of why one explanation for the epidemic of immune system suppression has dominated the discourse on AIDS, despite the anomalies attributed to it by the proponents of other viewpoints is raised.
The Sink and the Murder Scene: Rise and Fall of a Causal Model for AIDS Pathogenesis
The rise of the so-called "sink model" of AIDS pathogenesis is outlined on the background of the knowledge and anomalies emerging in AIDS research in the Nineties, ultimately leading to the overcoming of the model itself and to a "paradigm shift" towards alternative views under scrutiny.

The boundary work undertaken by HIV scientists and activists against the journal Medical Hypotheses over its lack of peer review concludes that Duesberg's freedom to write what he likes remains intact, but that if he wants his work to carry the imprimatur of science, he now has to subject it to peer review.
How much longer can we afford the AIDS virus monopoly
Until 1984 AIDS science was open. Initially the new epidemic of pneumonias and Kaposi’s sarcomas, since called AIDS, was considered a collection of non-infectious ‘lifestyle’ diseases. But the
Medical mycology in the UK: time to stop the dry rot.
The scientific evidence that HIV infection is pathogenic and the prime cause of AIDS was strong then and is even stronger now and those who would deny HIV is a pathogen must explain this evidence from Africa and developed countries.
The AIDS dilemma: drug diseases blamed on a passenger virus
It is proposed that the long-term consumption of recreational drugs and prescriptions of DNA chain-terminating and other anti-HIV drugs, cause all AIDS diseases in America and Europe that exceed their long-established, national backgrounds, i.e. <95%.
The chemical bases of the various AIDS epidemics: Recreational drugs, anti-viral chemotherapy and malnutrition
It is proposed that AIDS is a collection of chemical epidemics, caused by recreational drugs, anti-HIV drugs, and malnutrition, and is predicted to predict AIDS prevention by adequate nutrition and abstaining from Drugs, and even cures by treating AIDS diseases with proven medications.
Conspiracy theories in science Conspiracy theories that target specific research can have serious consequences for public health and environmental policies
Conspiracy theories are easy to propagate and difficult to refute. Fortunately, until a decade or so ago, few serious conspiracy theories haunted the natural sciences. More recently, however,
