The Infectious Myth - The UK “Bad Blood” Inquiry

David, in his role as the president of Rethinking AIDS, recently wrote to the UK “bad blood” inquiry. The inquiry believes that the clotting factor that hemophiliacs need to reduce the risk of bleeding severely, was infected with HIV. But David cites the evidence that it was actually impurities in the “intermediate purity” clotting factor used in the 1980s that was one  problem, and the use of the drug AZT in HIV-positive hemophiliacs (and not in those who tested negative) was the cause of the extremely high death rate in hemophiliacs starting in the late 1990s, up to 13% of seropositives in one year, almost all taking AZT. The survival of some hemophiliacs in good health, who consistently refused AZT and later AIDS drugs, is further evidence that HIV was never the problem. A copy of David’s letter to the inquiry, including citations, can be found here:
