"The theory that AIDS originated in African monkeys arose from an incident of laboratory contamination." ? The scientific literature is clear: (1) New York City is the epicenter of the AIDS epidemic; (2) the theory that HIV came from monkeys is a fallacy; the theory that AIDS originated in African monkeys arose from an incident of laboratory contamination; and (3) the African AIDS epidemic-as-holocaust never manifested.
"The first Africans diagnosed with AIDS were residents of Belgium." ? Fully referenced, based on a forensic review of over 3000 scientific and medical journal articles, this book redefines global concepts for the prevalence and distribution of HIV infection. For many readers, each page will be a revelation as the Author not only deconstructs many myths and misconceptions, but also describes how the current misconceptions came into being.
"The first documented case of international HIV transmission occurred between New York City and Copenhagen."
HIV/AIDS - The Facts and the Fiction has an adjuvant companion book, HIV/AIDS in South Africa - The Facts and the Fiction, which provides numerical substantiation to some of the assertions presented in HIV/AIDS - The Facts and the Fiction. Together, they redefine global concepts for the prevalence and distribution of HIV infection, and have powerful implications for HIV/AIDS funding, research prerogatives, and global health care interventions.
Chris Jennings (Harvard, B.A., Biology 1976/77) excels at writing scientific books that fulfill the needs of professionals while rendering the science accessible to the average reader.
