AIDS/HIV

The evidence that AIDS is caused by HIV-1 or HIV-2 is clear-cut, exhaustive and unambiguous, meeting the highest standards of science. The data fulfil exactly the same criteria as for other viral diseases, such as polio, measles and smallpox... It is unfortunate that a few vocal people continue to deny the evidence. This position will cost countless lives.
