Difficulties encountered by Dissenters.
Scientists and policymakers, it seems, are as reluctant to confront possible mistakes as ordinary people:
- For instance, two AIDS officials, in print, called for jailing those who disagree with the HIV hypothesis. (Newsday, March 29, 2000).
- When Professor Peter Duesberg, a distinguished retrovirus researcher, first raised hard to answer questions about the HIV theory, his government funding was cut and he was demoted to just teaching undergraduates.
- Widely differing HIV test criteria make it possible for someone who tests positive in Africa to test negative in New York, but efforts to get a chart showing the wide variation in criteria published were not successful until just this year (a delay of over ten years).

- A South African jurist recently attacked AIDS dissenters in highly personal terms, in a Harvard lecture. Click on this link to see the response of Dr. Valendar Turner, published in South Africa's Mail & Guardian.
