What is the BBC Playing At? Part 1

I recently watched and was appalled by the BBC Horizon programme narrated by Sir Paul Nurse called Science Under Attack, which covered some hotly contested topics, such as global warming, HIV and AIDS, genetically modified foods, the ability of the medical industry to cure people and vaccines.

You can watch it from the link HERE

It covered many topics in such a biased and ‘unscientific’ manner that I will need to deal with the issues separately in a small series of blog entries. It also raised a great deal of heat within the disciplines of each of the topics that were covered, as you will discover.

This blog discusses the topic of HIV and AIDS.

Sir Paul Nurse stated that HIV causes AIDS with such certainty that you would assume that this has been scientifically proven; it most definitely has not.

He interviewed a gay man called Tony Lance who, at a routine checkup, was told by his doctor that he was HIV-positive, given a prescription for ARVs (anti-retrovirals) and told that if he didn’t take the drugs he would be dead in 2 years. On his way home he threw away the prescription and never went back to the doctor for anything HIV related.

He was relating this story 13 years later!

And yet Paul Nurse won’t call that evidence! He stated to camera that “……..there is such an overwhelming body of evidence that HIV causes AIDS, I really want to understand how Tony has reached his opinion.”


Has Paul Nurse failed to appreciate the evidence of his own eyes? The man is still alive after 13 years and has managed it without drugs, surely that blows such a massive hole in Paul Nurse’s ‘overwhelming body of evidence’, that he should be rubbing his chin and saying ‘Hmmm, we need to look at this HIV=AIDS=DEATH story a bit closer’.

But it seems that for Paul Nurse, the evidence of Tony’s ability to still be alive without drugs is not ‘scientific evidence’ so it doesn’t count.

There is a difference between applying the scientific method and mere ‘opinion’. Tony Lance has studied the evidence, which is apparent from a detailed and extensively referenced article he has written that you can view HERE

You can view an article on the same topic by Dr Henry Bauer PhD HERE

I must point out that Paul Nurse’s fixed and incorrect view of the ‘HIV causes AIDS’ hypothesis shows that he is doing exactly what he criticised within the programme; having a fixed view and then looking for the evidence to support it.

But what is worse is that he is completely ignoring the overwhelming evidence that refutes this hypothesis.

You would think that as a Nobel prize winner Paul Nurse would, at least, have respect for a fellow Nobel Prize winner, Dr Kary Mullis, who says that HIV has not been proved to cause AIDS.

You can view Dr Mullis’ comments on HIV and AIDS from the introduction to Dr Peter Duesberg’s book, Inventing the AIDS Virus, at this link HERE

The introduction includes the following extract:
“We have not been able to discover any good reasons why most of the people on earth believe that AIDS is a disease caused by a virus called HIV. There is simply no scientific evidence demonstrating that this is true.
We have also not been able to discover why doctors prescribe a toxic drug called AZT (Zidovudine) to people who have no other complaint other than the fact that they have the presence of antibodies to HIV in their blood. In fact, we cannot understand why humans would take this drug for any reason.
We cannot understand how all this madness came about, and having both lived in Berkeley, we’ve seen some strange things indeed. We know that to err is human, but the HIV/AIDS hypothesis is one hell of a mistake.”

You can also watch a video interview with Dr Mullis in which he states that he searched in vain for the original papers that were supposed to prove that HIV was the probable cause of AIDS from the link HERE

There are other interviews on this You Tube video and if you click on the ‘show more’ below it you will find links to many other resources, including the film House of Numbers.

You can read more about the much maligned Dr Peter Duesberg at his own website HERE

If you study the information from the links in this blog you will realise that the weight of the evidence shows that the HIV=AIDS=DEATH hypothesis is false.
