I have been out of the loop during a rather involved move (of my business up the street). I just came across a Semmelweis press release where I read:
“We at Semmelweis are proud of our decision to present Dr. Peter Duesberg and Celia Farber with our highest honour…”
Whereupon I burst into tears.
My heart is so full of gratitude that this esteemed organization has bestowed this award upon you and Peter. Just when one almost collapses from hopelessness that anything will ever change, along comes this blinding torch of hope that something will, somehow, finally shift. Somewhere. Someday.
I can think of no one more deserving, and I hope it provided some shard of hope, some vindication, and a reminder that you are walking a path of extraordinary, almost unbelievable dedication to truth and fairness.
I am alive today because I read your Spin magazine articles, Celia. I am alive today because Peter chose to assert something different. How can one express the kind of gratitude and admiration I feel for you both?
Well, a Semmelweis Award is certainly a start. And so, I carry on weeping for joy…

Subject: Thanks very much!
Thanks very much for writing your timely article entitled “Gallo’s Egg” on the HIV/AIDS scandal and the ongoing cover up associated with it. As a dissident and survivor of the lies, restrictions and “false diagnosis” imposed on me for over 20 years now, I can relate directly to all the details and events you cover.
The fraudulent antibody test was imposed on me by my doctors in conjunction with my ongoing Hemophila care and assessment at the Hospital. My diagnosis came at a vulnerable time in my life while still a minor. You could in a sense compare me as contemporary of “Ryan White”, except that I refused the toxic regimens from day one. Fortunately my life was saved because of this fact. But I never was able to resume normal relationships, get married or continue my future career and life, etc. as I had envisioned. With the diagnosis I have directly experienced high levels of social isolation, discrimination and stigmatization in spite of the fact I’ve been 100% healthy all these years.
I have personally witnessed and know of many hemophiliacs who died from AZT poisoning in the initial years of regular high dose AZT monotherapy. Many were asymptomatic like me and would have lived had they not been given put on these poisons on a prophylactic basis. It disgusts and saddens me that the true nature of these deaths has been part of an on going cover up to this day. Still others are living on slightly less toxic cocktails and ultimately die prematurely of liver and/or kidney failure which are caused entirely by the drugs and not by any hypothetical virus.
(…I got your phone call at this point..lol)
I’m going to continue seeking more spiritual communication with God on these matters. I pray that you will be protected from all harm and that you will have success in spreading the message. Indeed I’m a survivor with an enlightening and life affirming message to share that can save many others too from also being given a “Dentence Sentence”. I will do my all to end the tyranny and oppression imposed by the HIV/AIDS dogma and defend all those harmed by it.
Sincere thanks and much gratitude,
To: Peter Duesberg

I’m sure you get unsolicited emails all the time and I’m sorry to add to the pile. I’ll keep it brief. I have been diagnosed two months ago as having HIV which came as a huge shock, everyone says that I know. It has been a huge mystery to me because I do not fit into the classic risk groups, I have never taken drugs, I am definitely not a bum bandit and I’ve never suffered from Anaemia. To make matters worse I am hardly the worlds most promiscuous man, I have had very few sexual encounters for a man of my age, 29 and I have since learned it is nigh on impossible to catch as an heterosexual man.
I started questioning the diagnosis from the start, the staff at the hospital in the UK did not fill me with confidence, there seemed to be a general lack of consensus on the subject and my questions were often met with varying answers depending on whichever Doctor I spoke to. What I detested most of all was their patronising manner, I felt very vulnerable and had the impression that they were rubbing their hands in glee at the prospect of having another victim, another innocent casualty to keep the AIDS myth alive.
All this lead me to research the subject a bit further and I came across names such as Karry Mullis and of course you. It has given me the hope I needed and I have been astounded at what I have learnt. It frightens me that the drug companies can wield so much power and that the world at large buys into this myth, it almost as if a mass hypnosis is taking place before our eyes. I had never been privy to a witch hunt until this sad chapter of my life.
Anyway enough of the emotional crap, I am convinced that my result was a false positive and I am determined in proving this. I have suffered in the past from some quite strange ailments, these include Viral Labryintitus and have had psoriasis for about three years. I know that you are not a Doctor so I’m not going to ask you a load of questions. I know, however, that the tests are not specific to HIV antibodies as the virus has never been isolated so is it possible that I may have produced proteins or antigens from the aforementioned ailments which may have cross reacted with the test kits?
Finally, do you think the “dissident movement” will stay as an underground largely internet/blog phenomenon or will it eventually rise up and tear down the walls of the pro aids camp. How can the world move from the current accepted wisdom into challenging this virus concept. It just seems that the whole aids body is perched up in an ivory tower that cannot be brought down. Well I am hoping this will change because my life depends on it. Many thanks and sorry to bother you.

Dear Mr Baker,
I read with interest your report to the Semmelweis organization and found it searingly accurate.
Thank you for the work you put into it. History will remember all this and this kind of documentation will help clear the rubble of this confused and tangled subject.
It came to my attention that you had expressed interest in hearing from those who had benefited from HAART treatments for ‘HIV infection’. This is indeed a difficult subject. However, I would like to share my perspective.
I have seen these drug treatments administered to friends whose health quickly deteriorated thereafter until they died from toxicities. I have seen friends near death who then recover some semblance of health for a while after administration of HAART. And I have seen people carry blithely on with no treatment whatsoever. And everything in-between.
In observing all this madness, my feeling is that the earlier dosages (1980’s) were much more toxic and the new classes of drugs less so, both is dosage and inherent toxicity. There is some evidence that these drugs are highly antifungal, antiviral and anti bacterial, hence their prescription for everything from toenail fungus to Hep B.
In my view, far from rebalancing the immune systems of people whose antibody titre for certain antibodies is high enough to trigger a positive ‘HIV’ result, they seem to act in some broadly antimicrobial way, which can be helpful in the short term. However, the cumulative toxicities seem to eventually overwhelm the patient and kill them. This is what HIV-based research has brought us. Not a very good result for all the hundreds of billions spent.
You will likely find people who attribute their continuing health to these drugs. Sadly, my experience has been that most everyone who would claim they are being kept alive by them, also experiences varying losses in quality of life, if the drugs don’t kill them outright. This loss can be mild or severe.
For what it’s worth, I do feel that something is going on in some patients who are HIV positive. Peter Duesberg is likely correct that an HIV test is like a ’something’s wrong’ test - a red flag at best. I think if science focused on the significance of high antibody titres to an immune system (inflammatory?) we’d be much farther ahead. I don’t see evidence for a single cause of AIDS, and my observation has been that it is much more of an disease of accumulation. Accumulation of things that each tax the system: Malnutrition, and endemic infection if some groups; Anal exposure to too many different semens, drug use and stds in other groups; Undiagnosed or improperly treated Syphilis infections are another avenue of research that may yield answers; and of course, the immune destroying effects of the very drugs used to ‘treat’ HIV.
Indeed, the presence of antibodies used to diagnose HIV may have some other vague predictive value. Unfortunately, as other possible interpretations of the presence of these antibodies has been all but ignored by the establishment, we simply don’t really know what else they may mean. Or if they really mean anything at all in every patient.
But who am I really?…this is all just personal supposition based on my reading and observations… I am not a scientist. But I have so far survived for 11 years without illness or HAART (although I not public about my diagnosis)
I share this because there will be those who claim HAART saved them. Perhaps it can help sometimes, especially those who are nearing the end. Perhaps some tolerate it better than others over time and so experience more benefit from its’ antimicrobial (or other?) effects with less toxicity. I can’t be sure.
The truth is that many within the system see those patients who rebound after treatment and assume that everybody will likewise benefit regardless of the state of their health. This is where some of the anger directed at Celia and Peter comes from. While I believe that there are definitely bad apples promoting Big Pharma at all cost, there are those who too-willingly over-simplify the dissenting opinions and convince themselves that the Farbers and Duesbergs of the world are saying immune deficiency in people with these antibodies doesn’t exist. That AIDS doesn’t exist. That HAART is the only problem. Don’t bother with condoms.
Well it’s just nonsense. And perhaps laziness. And maybe fear.
Having read much of what Duesberg and Farber have written on the subject, I have never had the impression that any of that is true. From their writings I take these simple messages: AIDS may be more complicated than we thought; Prevention may be more complicated than we thought; Treatment may be more complicated than we thought; Let’s be careful and look into it. Period.
Sadly, most AIDS activists simply don’t want to accept that things are complicated or complex…”One Virus = One Disease” is so much easier to understand.
I hope you will forgive this unsolicited email, but I felt inclined to share my perspective. I hope it’s not all completely redundant.
You have my admiration and gratitude for your work on all this.
With all good wishes,
