so this guy, sorry I briefly saw it on the news so I don't have a link
he created a vaccine of a sort to prevent aids, not cure but prevent, and help ppl with it live longer, he has gone to different countries and has proven it works, people haven't gotten aids and the ones with it are living longer
the America drug association wont let it be used here, what the actual fuck
if a cure or way to prevent cancer was found it wouldn't be allowed to be used here


what do you think? why would they not let this kind of thing be used

I'm rather skeptical without anything to prove it, honestly. Last I heard, back in October, a new vaccine was going to be trialed, but that's it.

I've heard of a drug, which is approved of in the US, that is able to prevent people from getting HIV/AIDS. It was created with people who had significant others with the disease in mind. Although nothing is 100%, it does try to make sure that those who do interact with the infected have a lower chance of catching the disease.

If people read up on HIV, its pathogenesis... they'll understand why it's near impossible to make a vaccine. I'll give a hint, there's no guaranteed flu vaccine either. Wonder why? The protein on the virus' surface changes all the time; it's not like any other viruses or bacteria.

Hence why I also don't think it's real. Fraud at best, scam at worst.

i remember reading about a vaccine that was approved everywhere except in the US.
those countries later reported cases of babies being born with defect, while US had no such problem because the vaccine was never approved for not meeting safety standards.

Legitimate or not, if AIDS isn't a problem anymore, the sex education here loses half of its curriculum...

Don't know why you would jump to a conspiracy theory when other vaccines have been advocated for by the fda. Such as Flu, and HPV...

How was this tested?
I would think a controlled test would involve getting a healthy group of people, vaccinating them then infecting them with aids.
Then getting another group of healthy people and infecting them with the same aids sample to compare.

true. there's probably a reason it was not approved by the doctors (either the vaccine was not proven to work, or that it would pose no dangerous side effects)

Yeah I'd need to see actual proof this is a thing.

First of all anyone can just claim they tested it. Also was this tested by giving the drug to people then purposfully trying to give them aids? Because that is horribly unethical. Or was it just given to a few hundred people and if most never reported getting it then he called it a success? Because that would be VERY very poor testing.

I'm not saying big companies never suppress innovation for the sake of profits. But I'm saying Aids isn't something some guy can just make a maricle drug for and accurately test on his own.

There is a reason all officially recognized drugs are made and approved by large companies or groups besides little people getting suppressed. It's because the amount of resources and man power that go into making and testing this stuff is staggering.


So proper drug research really is better left in the hands of the AMA and other powerful groups because while profits may be part of their aim they also don't want lawsuits so you can bet they'll do their best to make sure the stuff they put out...... probably works. They'll screw up or cut corners once in a while but the thing is even when a group that large cuts corners they are least did more work and testing than some guy doing stuff on his own.

So yeah I distrust large companies as much as the next guy but I'm not buying this "cure" guy is legit either without some damn good proof.
