    HIV link to AIDS may not be simple. XMRV skeptics make same claim - yawn!

    HIV skeptics are all or virtually all idiots. Duesberg is incapable.

    I have no sympathy for HIV skeptics/denialists. This HIV positive woman conceived children and let one die, all the while denying it was AIDS. She died herself a few years later.

    Nice writing,CBS! Great quotes from Coffin!

    Hi Shane. I'm a bit confused by your post. I don't see anything there that supports your thread title - that HIV skeptics are also skeptical of XMRV. Unless I'm missing something (which is possible!) I just see an article from HIV denialists, and then you discuss how CFS can resemble AIDS.

    Are you just saying that retroviral disease is still poorly understood and is likely multifactorial, and thus XMRV deserves more investigation?

    I don't think we're well-served to give the impression that we give any credence AT ALL to HIV deniers.
     
  5. Shane. I personally would not worry over anyone who denies someone's illness identity with a proven infection such as an HIV test or HTLV/XMRV.
    (Even if it is upsetting and annoying), many people in this life just like to aggravate others as they have nothing better to do.
