HIV linked with deprivation

Reuters reports on a new study which connects acquisition of a HIV-positive status with societal issues. Unfortunately, the virus hypothesis is not divorced.

In unrelated news, a video has recently appeared online in which Dr Peter Gotzsche of the Nordic Cochrane Centre (Cochrane produces detailed reports on all the literature available on a subject) condemns mammography as being a risky procedure which provides little benefit. Gotzche shares an experience with Peter Duesberg in regards to censorship of an article:

In 2006 a paper by Gøtzsche on mammography screening was electronically published in the European Journal of Cancer ahead of print. The journal later removed the paper completely from the journal website without any formal retraction. The paper was later published in Danish Medical Bulletin with a short note from the editor, and Gøtzsche and his co-authors commented on the unilateral retraction that the authors were not involved in.

Additionally, Rethinking AIDS President, David Crowe, has interviewed Gotzsche previously. Listen here.
