This film is yet another dangerous HIV/AIDS documentary that encourages people to stop taking their HIV medication because they say "HIV does not cause AIDS" with over 300,000 and counting deathly results. Most of those who stopped their treatment because of this beyond pseudo-scientific propaganda film are DEAD. One of them took their 4 year old daughter to a painful death with them. The film is full of misinformation and downright lies. For example, the end credits state that Darren Main, a HIV+ man since 2000 is alive and kicking, despite not using HIV medication. This is an outright LIE as clarified by Darren in his blog "The Miracle" . The only thing to deny is this movie of any validity and to encourage all friends who are unfortunate to have a diagnosis to listen to their doctors and the facts and REFUTE this deathly film.Written by
I just want to read four things that you can find on the back of the drug ads, that in the front have handsome, tanned men climbing up mountains in short shorts, and smiling women, and all that stuff... And in the back it says
, At this time there is no evidence that Ziagen will help you live longer or have fewer of the medical problems associated with HIV or AIDS... It is not yet known whether Crixivan will extend your life or reduce your chances of getting other illnesses associated ...

This is a very one-sided documentary propounding the view that HIV is not the cause of AIDS. The argument is presented chiefly through interviews, with those contributors who believe HIV is some kind of conspiracy far outnumbering those who take the conventional viewpoint. A key theme seems to be questioning what we are told and thinking for ourselves, but the overriding message I was left with is "think for yourself, as long as you agree with us".
I'm not sure if it's because we've learnt much more about HIV/AIDS since 2004, but it seems to me that a lot of the contributors to this documentary (many of whom are not medically qualified) simply don't understand what AIDS is or how it works. Having HIV does not necessarily make someone an expert on it. The very notion that HIV is harmless is undermined by the fact that the majority of HIV-positive interviewees who put forward this argument in the film have since died of AIDS.
It is fair enough to call for healthy scepticism, and by questioning received wisdom we can push our knowledge and ability to fight disease further. However, a complete denial of the overwhelming evidence that those infected with HIV tend to develop AIDS and die if left untreated, is quite frankly dangerous and will only impede the struggle to eradicate this terrible disease.
Of course, watch and decide for yourself, but personally I remain unconvinced by the muddled argument found here.
