Researcher Challenges AIDS Hypothesis

Lainey S. Cronk
What if the “facts” we’ve been given about AIDS are false? Researcher Dr. Peter Duesberg challenges the traditional view of AIDS during Pacific Union College’s All-Science Seminar series on Tuesday, February 10, at 10 a.m. in Chan Shun Hall lecture hall #2. Admission is free.

Duesberg, an instructor in the department of molecular and cell biology at UC Berkeley, has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the California Scientist of the Year Award, the American Medical Center Oncology Award, and the Outstanding Investigator Award. In 2000, the South African government invited him to discuss the AIDS crisis as a member of the International Panel of Scientists.

Duesberg challenges the virus-AIDS hypothesis by proposing that AIDS related diseases stem from long-term consumption of recreational drugs and anti-HIV drugs.
