In 1981 a new epidemic of about two-dozen heterogeneous diseases began to strike non-randomly growing numbers of male homosexuals and mostly male intravenous drug users in the US and Europe. Assuming immunodeficiency as the common denominator the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) termed the epidemic, AIDS, for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. From 1981-1984 leading researchers including those from the CDC proposed that recreational drug use was the cause of AIDS, because of exact… Expand
AIDS since 1984: no evidence for a new, viral epidemic--not even in Africa.
TLDR
It is deduced from demographic evidence that HIV is not a new killer virus and the need of rethinking the risk-and-benefit balance of antiretroviral drugs for pregnant women, newborn babies and all others who carry antibodies against HIV is drawn to the attention. Expand
HIV and AIDS
TLDR
The first cases of AIDS were reported in 1981 with the occurrence of Pneumocystis carinii in a cohort of young homosexual men in the U.S. and the number of infected people reached 30–40 million, at the peak of the epidemic. Expand
The first postmodern pandemic: 25 years of HIV/ AIDS
TLDR
To meet the goal of universal access to prevention, treatment and care by 2010 would require a quadrupling of funding to an estimated US$42 billion by 2010, including adequate overall strengthening of healthcare systems, but in any case the world will have to learn to live with HIV for the foreseeable future.

Fallacies in Modern Medicine: the HIV/AIDS Hypothesis
TLDR
Substantial evidence, however, supports the opposite conclusion: it is the antiretroviral treatment itself that causes cancer, liver damage, cardiovascular, and other diseases in these patients. Expand
The Global Spread of AIDS and HIV
Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) emerged on the global scene in the early 1980s, and since then has become one of the critical factors affecting humanExpand
Evaluation of the AIDS risk perception among healthcare workers in the Hospital University Unit of Messina (Italy).
TLDR
The present research is produced with the aim to evaluate, in the context of healthcare workers of the hospital University unit in Messina (Italy), what exactly is the current perception of “AIDS” risk, whether, and to what extent, their knowledge of HIV has lessened, hand in hand to that of the common people.

AIDS acquired by drug consumption and other noncontagious risk factors.
TLDR
It is proposed that all American/European AIDS diseases, that exceed their normal background, result from recreational and anti-HIV drugs and African AIDS is proposed to result from protein malnutrition, poor sanitation and subsequent parasitic infections. Expand
The AIDS dilemma: drug diseases blamed on a passenger virus
TLDR
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%. Expand
AIDS and intravenous drug use: the real heterosexual epidemic.

A larger spectrum of severe HIV-1--related disease in intravenous drug users in New York City
TLDR
Investigations of these deaths suggest a causal association with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and may represent a spectrum of HIV-related disease that has not been identified through AIDS surveillance and has resulted in a large underestimation of the impact of AIDS on IV drug users and blacks and Hispanics.

Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome
TLDR
The authors pay attention to the high frequency of Kaposi sarcoma among the patients with AIDS, and considers such diagnostic features as presence of antibodies to HTLV-III retrovirus and the clinical picture one should take into account changes in the lymph nodes, presence of viral particles in their bioptates, and a drastic reduction of T-lymphocytes in blood.
