HIV denialism

A woman and her daughter...

The woman was an HIV denialist.

She passed HIV onto her daughter who died. Then she died.

And "Mothering" magazine is still trying to kill children.

That hasn't stopped the denialists, though. They're going strong and getting stupider by the minute:
Deepak Chopra has been praising Luc Montagnier, the Nobel prize winning co-discoverer of the human immunodeficiency virus, for tumbling down the walls of science — which ought to be enough to condemn the poor guy right there. But I had to take a look at exactly what Montagnier is claiming, and I'm afraid the only thing tumbling is his credibility.
Awesome, isn't it? He uses a laptop PC with a Soundblaster audio card for analog to digital signal conversion, plugged into a hifi amplifer, which is in turn hooked up to a coil of copper wire. A vial contain the solution to be tested is dropped into the coil. Un-freaking-believable.

HIV denialism is popular. Pop stars have played benefits for it. I won't even bother to mention how popular it is in parts of Africa right now, along with witchcraft, exorcism, etc., all bolstered by big-name American evangelists.

"The death of one is a tragedy, the death of millions just a statistic"—Marilyn Manson
