How Aids Can Be Stopped Or Controlled
Posted: Wednesday, December 19, 2001

by P.A.Barton

There have been many contributions to the origins of AIDS (Aquired Immune Defficienty Syndrome) over the past few years. There have been
many versions of the sources of AIDS. Yet, a study of African history
does not show any evidence of any disease like AIDS having such a
devastating effect on Africa since Egyptian times to the rapid spread of AIDS over the past ten years. (See the book: Susu Economics The History of Pan-African Trade, Commerce, Money and Wealth (ISBN# 1-58721-454-7) 1stBooks Library, www.1stbooks.com

For example, some have blamed a "green monkey" for having spread AIDS among humans, raising the question as to why AIDS was not around thousands of years before the green monkey is said to have bitten someone. Was this the first "green monkey" to bite a human and pass AIDS? The question is as haunting as the idea that the moon is made of
"green cheese."

There are many scientists, doctors, biologists and ordinary people who believe that the so-called AIDS "virus" was invented in a laboratory with the intention of being used a tool for population control. According to some scientists, including prominent immuno-defficiency specialists, it appears that the AIDS virus is a "retro-virus" composed of viruses from two sources.

One source is sheep (syphilis is said to come from sheep as well) and the other is bovine (or cow) viruses. It is also said that retroviruses alread inhabit the body and are dormant but can be triggered to flare up later. The stomach may contain such retroviruses and it is a fact that diseases can be spread when persons visit the bathrooms and do not wash their hands before leaving.


At the present time, AIDS is devastating the Nations of Africa and South Asia, the Caribbean and parts of Brazil. One notices that these nations have one thing in common. They have large populations of people of African descent, huge populations faced with poverty, a myriad of tropical diseases with symptoms very similar to AIDS, such as "sleeping sickness", malaria, tuberculosis, worms and others.

According to African Link Magazine (Volume 6, #4; 4th Quarter, 1997, p. 27), the isolation of many African communities from Africa's great rivers and water drainage systems such as the Zambizi, Nile, Volta, Gambia, Niger, Limpopo and other river systems have led to many poor and isolated rural people having little access to potable water. In other areas where drainage is not efficient, "because of this lack of access some diseases such as water-borne bilharzia, intestinal parasites and guinea worm are common."

Sadly, these and many other such tropical diseases are now lumped into the "AIDS" category. Malaria and sickle cell anemia is widspread in Africa and the tropics as well. There is also a factor that is being lookied at by many nations in Africa. Is AIDS being spread by mosquitoes? In the Dominican Republic, that issue was made public after many startling observations.


1. Governments must take steps to create the medicines that will help stop the spread of AIDS and cure any of those infected. Many governments can use or combine their scientists to work on creating cures

2. Measures should be taken to stop all behavior that causes the spread of AIDS. Ancient traditions, sexual taboos and laws making irresponsible behavior illegal should be passed.

3. Young people and adults alike must be reminded of the value of not being promiscuous, of staying faithful to one partner and of not engaging in risky behavior.

4. Drug consumption must be lessened significantly. Crack cocaine and many narcortics including legal toxic drugs may help weaken the immune system. Alcohol abuse can also weaken the body's ability to fight diseases.

5. Measures should be taken by organizations, governments and individuals to encourage testing for AIDS as well as other diseases.

6. African, Indian, Caribbean, American and other governments faced with AIDS in their territories and continual infections, should encourage population expansion. In Africa, the tradition has always been to have large families due to the devastation that diseases such as malaria, sickle cell anemia, kwashiokor, parasites and others can and have caused in negatively affecting population growth.

7. AIDS was curtailed in Cuba from the beginning. African governments should study what methods they used to control the spread of AIDS and should implement these methods.

8. There should be studies of people who are immne to AIDS. For example, according to U.S. News and World Report (January 29, 2001; p.40) "Some people with Eastern European roots have a gene that confers resistance to AIDS." Governments and Pharmacuetical companies in Africa and worldwide should conduct studies to see whether cures can be created from these "anti AIDS genes." After all, it is the resistance of some Africans to malaria that has helped to create anti-malaria vaccines.
