"According to Dr. Chowdhury, the author, HIV does not cause AIDS. The author accuses the scientific community of having failed to provide evidence beyond reasonable doubt that HIV causes AIDS. He outlined that the HIV – AIDS hypothesis by Dr. Robert Gallo in 1984 violated the scientific method, not only due to lack of supporting evidence but to also to the fact that an announcement was made before publishing the findings in a journal for scientific scrutiny. The author draws up to five major pieces of evidence to support his belief that HIV may not be the cause of Aids. One of his arguments is the specificity of the diagnostic tools used in the detection of the virus. ELISA and Western Blot test usually give a false positive test and the antigens they detect may be of other viruses like the Human Endogenous Retrovirus (HERV)."
"In further support of his ideology, Dr. Chowdhury brings Koch’s postulates in place. He argues that HIV has never been isolated from a human body hence there is a violation of Koch’s second postulate (To establish a microorganism as a causative agent of a disease of interest, the microorganism must be isolated from the diseased organism and cultivated a pure culture). It is therefore through such shreds of evidence that he believes HIV is not the causative agent of AIDS.
After stressing his supporting points, Dr. Chowdhury proposes that aids is a metabolic syndrome caused by oxidative stress. He intelligently draws out about five points as evidence for his ideology and ultimately concludes that HIV/AIDS is not a viral disease but a metabolic syndrome."
