Denialism and World AIDS Day

HIV/AIDS denialism seems to be back with a vengeance. The lies that the potion pedlars fed to a scared African continent that was understandably distrustful of the Western establishment are now hitting us in the face like filthy sewer backwash.

Let us be clear, AIDS is caused by HIV solely. The exacerbating factors of poverty, malnutrition and other diseases do not cause the syndrome. Read up on the facts, and when you find someone wavering about denialism, calmly and politely try to help them understand that they are being misled. Public opinion on matters such as this are fundamental to shaping government policy.
