"This is not true for HIV denialism. It can be a matter of life and death."

I have never, in all my years reviewing this subject, read or heard any dissident suggest that high-risk behaviours (unprotected sex with mutiple sex partners, anal sex, IV drug use with shared needles etc.) were fine. In fact I have seen just the opposite.

Your comment above truly is irresponsible and nothing more than a not -so-veiled attempt, to paint anyone who does not agree with you, as an uncaring person. Nonsense!

Many who question the HIV = AIDS paradigm are well respected researchers and scientists within their own right. Is this the "lay audience" to whom you refer?
