About Surviving AIDS and Cancer: A Guide to Staying Healthy Paperback by Noreen Martin
Noreen Martin has been diagnosed with AIDS. Is she dying? Is she contagious? Is she an emaciated shell of her former self, wearing a red ribbon, coming up to Capital Hill to testify, seeking more NIH funding to fight this horrible disease? Actually, the answers are No, No and No. Rather, she is a feisty, healthy, hearty housewife living in Charleston, South Carolina with her devoted husband, Robert. She is in great health. Let me repeat-great health.
A-ha, says the medical expert-she is a living testament to the wonders of modern medicine. Obviously, the life-saving antiretrovirals must have reduced her viral load to "undetectable" levels. Well, actually, No. She stopped taking the AIDS drugs over a year ago.
So, what gives? Mrs. Martin's tale is an important one for all self-proclaimed AIDS experts-those who pontificate endlessly about the accuracy of the tests, the dangers of the virus, and the safety of medications, when, in fact, an accumulating body of purely scientific evidence suggests the converse-that the tests are unreliable, that the virus is inert, and the medications will kill your liver and raise the risk of heart attack.
"If you have been told that you are "HIV positive", at any time in your life, I strongly recommend that you read this book by this courageous woman, who has seen it all, navigated around earnest, but ill-informed doctors, and has restored herself to great health. It just may save your life."-D. D. Steele, attorney in San Francisco
