According to the authors this should result in a bell-shaped curve with rapid rate of infection then passage of the pathogen from the population. This is, of course, absurd because HIV is not yersinia pestis or plague. HIV does not get transmitted through casual contact and it does not have a rapid onset of action, often taking years before the syndrome becomes clinically apparent. Effectively, they're comparing apples and oranges and saying HIV can't be an infectious epidemic because it's not acting like the spread of the black plague through London. I am serious, that is their comparison.But these butt-jokes like Deusberg seem to have a bit of appeal to *some* patients, who believe their anti-scientific BS – and rather die from refusal of anti-retrovirals then seek out the evidence.
I suggest now that you take five minutes to go outside and scream, or maybe gently hit your head against a hard surface.
And I am afraid it will be the same with XMRV/"HGRV" BS Mikovits is pushing, with the ironic twist of ME/CFS patients dying from anti-retrovirals. Because that will teach the medical establishment! Yeah.
And what's really sad, with the ME/CFS patients who will take anti-retrovirals on their own (or encouraged by some stupid quack doctor) – and there will be some – there will be a few who report success and the majority will suffer more and keep this to themselves. Mikovits is really trying hard to set back medical science back into the dark ages of refusal of evidence and acceptance of believes. And it is no solace that the patients who die as a result of the Mikovits "HGRV"-BS stop populating the forums, blogs and comment sections.
