HIV Infection Rates Rising

By City Weekly Readers
Posted // November 21,2012 -

Twenty-one years ago, on Nov. 7, 1991, America was jolted with the news that basketball legend Magic Johnson had contracted HIV and would retire from the sport. Almost immediately, Johnson began taking the antiretroviral drug AZT, and his health quickly improved. Just three months later, Johnson returned to basketball to play in the 1992 All-Star Game, where his performance earned him the MVP award.

Johnson’s fans and supporters were delighted by his triumphant return. And through Johnson’s experience, mainstream America began to understand that HIV infection was no longer an automatic death sentence, but a largely treatable, chronic condition.

We are fortunate that during the past two decades, there has been great progress in the treatment and care of people living with HIV and AIDS. With early detection and increasingly effective treatments, Johnson’s story is now just one of many high-profile examples of how people can manage their HIV and live long, productive lives.

But while proper treatment for people with HIV has become much more available and effective, only 25 percent of Americans with HIV are receiving it.

At the same time, people born after AIDS first emerged in 1981 are now most at risk of becoming infected with HIV. This sad fact highlights how important awareness and education is as we mark World AIDS Day on Dec. 1.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), HIV infection rates are increasing for Americans between 13 and 30, and most of the new HIV infections reported in this country involve people under 30. We need to ensure that all people—especially young people—are educated about HIV/AIDS prevention and the availability of effective treatments.

Let World AIDS Day remind us that about 56,000 Americans become infected with HIV each year, according to the CDC, and that more than 14,000 Americans with AIDS die each year. The CDC estimates that nearly 1.2 million Americans are living with HIV, and that about one in five don’t know they have the virus. Regularly testing people who are most at risk for HIV—and then providing antiretroviral drugs for HIV/AIDS patients—dramatically reduces the number of new infections.

Preventing HIV is not complicated. If you’re sexually active, get tested. Don’t use intravenous drugs or share needles. Abstain or practice safer sex. With preventive care, patients and their health-care providers can fight and manage this disease and slow its spread.

We can’t allow today’s more effective treatments to make us complacent or ambivalent, or to lessen our resolve to find a cure and achieve an AIDS-free generation. To learn more, or to find a place near you to get tested, visit ActAgainstAIDS.org.

Cure the bitch already and we won't have a problem. Folks aren't gonna stop fuckin', we cured a shit ton of other diseases. Why not this one? Oh, its HARD- big fuckin' deal. With more billions invested or if it was airborne; curing wouldn't seem like a dream. 3 are already cured. Hurry up, because the FDA pushes drugs faster than cures/remissions. Gilead's gotta make their billions before Sangamo's Gene Therapy is approved. So, lets all just buy these Gilead drugs so they'll reach their dollar so the FDA will pass Inovio, GeoVax & Sangamo already.

AMBUSH Cures HIV/AIDS


Sir / Madam,
           For the past 10 years of study of Ambush . a Palm plant extract that if effective in cureing HIV.  
Name of Plant;  Palm
 
Name of ingredient: Ambush
 
Molecular weight   640
(similar to the sequisulfides)
 
Where found: In and around the areas of South Florida where uranium waste was dumped in the 1920's from the nuclear programme that has now leaked out into the water system. A specie of the PALM plant has picked up this waste to be the valuable AMBUSH.  
 
Chemical compd; Uraium isotope (cus. n)  Greyish white soft metalic compound NOT found in chemistry books.
 
Uses: Antiviral DRUG. . Ambush
 
 Found to "KILL" the HIV virus when given in a dose of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days at a known concentration.
 
Mode of action. .   Ambush kills the HIV virus by causing the viral shell to rupture . In the lymph system Ambush produces "natural radioactivity" that "kills" the virus that 'hides' in the lymph systen . This crosses the blood-brain barrier since the 'patients' claim that they are able to see,hear and think more clearly after taking Ambush.
 
Viral Loads. . . This decreaces from 100,000 to 'undetectable' in 21 days. . . . . but I have had patients VL go to 'undetectable ' in 5 days.
 
SIDE EFFECTS / EFFECTS
1. After 5 to 7 days of treatment, patients MAY complain of HEADACHES.
2. After 5 to 7 days  male patients experience an increase in erection.
3. Stool becomes soft and REGULAR
4. Patients c/o being WARM in the trunk area mainly at night when lying down.
 
Toxicology. . . . . . Before administering to any person a complete toxicological analysis was done to include, arsenic, barbiturates and NO KNOWN poisons or harmful substances to mankind were found.
 
Systems/Organs
 
Skin. . . becomes cleam, smooth and free of exema or other say they have small exema patches in the first week that go away by the third week.
 
Excretion
    Since this is a very LARGE molecular it is excreted relatively unchanges via urine and feaces.
 
SEROREVERSION
     After 149 days the patents revert to being HIV NEGATIVE after finishing a course in Ambush hence no one goes public to say they WERE HIV positive.

Pharmacology of Ambush on the GUT of an end stage AIDS person.
 
  It is known that late stage AIDS patients posess a high level of the virus in the GUT which should include the entire GI tract from stomach to rectum. Here the virus is found in the lining and this is difficult for ARV's because these are the areas needed by the ARV's to enter the blood supply. There is not a high enough blood level returning back to the stomach lining hence the virus remains in high concentration.
 
  This causes the person's apetite to decrease which causes a spiralling downhill of the body.
 
  When Ambush is taken in the liquid form, it is slightly basic and forms a stable compound in the acidic stomach. The Ambush compound is close to the stomach lining to exert the "natural radioactivity" effect which kills the virus in the stomach. Here the entire mid section feels very warm and sometimes feverish. The infected stomach lining with the dead areas is then passed out as a black slime in the stool. This usually happens about day 4 while on an Ambush regime of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days, wherin the person has a large bowel movement.
 
  After the bowel movement, the person becomes extremely hungry and eats TWO to THREE times a normal serving. Here I usually recomend cornmeal porridge with butter or cooking oil as a prevention against malnutrition and add a daily multivitamin. By day 10 the stomach has recovered and the person eats normally
 
  Since the person is able to eat well, then recovery to full health usually follows. .

Posted // December 15,2012 at 08:16 - I can find only youtube videos and blogs claiming this plant can cure HIV. Where's the scientific proof? Where's the empirical evidence? Why are you relying on anecdotal, non-verifiable "evidence"?
