In a critique of recent declarations of an AIDS epidemic, the author argues that AIDS is not a heterosexual disease and contends that homosexuals and IV drug users Free shipping over $/5(6). To paraphrase Mark Twain, the news of Africa's demise has been greatly exaggerated. My book, The Myth of Heterosexual AIDS, notes that a high Ugandan official stated in that within two years this country would be a desert, while newspapers ran such headlines as the one: "AIDS Epidemic Threatens to Depopulate Much of Africa.".

The Myth of Heterosexual AIDS: How a Tragedy Has Been Distorted by the Media and Partisan Politics. Regnery Publishing. Heterosexuals are the largest group affected by AIDS and HIV infection.

As those affected have tended to come from the poorer, more disadvantaged social groups worldwide, however, they have received a disproportionately small degree of attention. This book is an attempt to adjust the by:   The chapters explore the way in which AIDS affects the heterosexual family, the way it permeates via the prison system, the range and extent of differing needs among sufferers, the role of alcohol and drugs in HIV infection and prevention, the impact of attitude studies, and HIV testing, counselling, and partner :   The Origins of AIDS, directed by Peter Chappell and Catherine Peix, follows the evidence laid out by British journalist Edward Hooper in his book, The River.

In it, Hooper proposed (based on nearly two decades of research) that one man’s part in the. The Myth of Heterosexual Aids exposes yet another media pogrom.

In line with the media's attempt to normalize the abnormal - homosexuality - the book sets out in forensic detail their campaign to try to make AIDS a heterosexual rather than a homosexual problem/5(18). In her new book The Wisdom of Whores, Elizabeth Pisani – who worked for 10 years in what she refers to as “the Aids bureaucracy” – admits that by it was clear that “HIV wasn’t going to rage through the billions in the ‘general population’, and we knew it”.

At that rate tertiary heterosexual AIDS should have begun showing up as early as late Bythe first fourth-generation cases would have become manifest.

Long before now, AIDS should have been cutting a swath through the nation’s heterosexual population. It is not doing so, and the reason is the lack of tertiary heterosexual.

To support their finding that the AIDS virus--if not AIDS itself--is running rampant through the population at large, they report on their study of heterosexuals, of whom had been strictly Author: Lee Dembart. I emphasized white heterosexuals only because that is the current emphasis of the media and the AIDS establishment.

Let me also point out here that the statistic of whites having contracted AIDS through heterosexual contact, which Dr. Whelan cites from my article, is for white male heterosexuals.
