THREE REQUESTS TO PETER FLEGG

In his rapid response: "Re: Re: Kaposi's sarcoma and the Perth Group", 18 August, Peter Flegg wrote: "Kaposi's sarcoma is caused by HHV-8".

Would Peter Flegg please give us a few references with evidence proving that KS is "caused by HHV-8".

Peter Flegg wrote: "Drs Noble, Bennett and myself have all given relevant references pointing to the role of HIV in the causation of KS. You will not find evidence in your faded copies of Continuum magazine. Try the modern scientific literature."

Would Peter Flegg please give us references from the "modern scientific literature" "pointing to the role of HIV in the causation of KS".

Most importantly, would Peter Flegg please give us a few references with evidence that "HIV" exists.
