What Really Causes AIDS by Harold D. Foster

By Harold D. Foster

WHAT particularly reasons AIDS:
AN govt precis The AIDS pandemic is probably going to turn into the best disaster in human background. except a secure, potent vaccine is readily constructed, or the preventive innovations defined during this e-book are greatly utilized, via 2015 one 6th of the world's inhabitants should be contaminated by means of HIV-1 and a few 250 million humans may have died from AIDS. Its linked losses by means of then can be greater than these of the Black loss of life and global warfare II mixed, the an identical of 8 international struggle Is.1 This pandemic is just one of numerous ongoing catastrophes concerning viruses that encode the selenoenzyme glutathione peroxidase.2 certainly, the area is experiencing simultaneous pandemics as a result of Hepatitis B and C viruses, Coxsackie B virus and HIV-1 and HIV-2. As those viruses reflect, simply because their genetic codes comprise a gene that's nearly similar to that of the human enzyme glutathione peroxidase, they rob their hosts of selenium. sarcastically, even if, they diffuse most simply in populations which are very selenium deficient,3 almost certainly simply because their individuals have depressed immune platforms. it really is no accident that such viruses are inflicting havoc before everything of the twenty first century. The final 50 years have noticeable huge, immense expansions within the use of fossil fuels and deforestation by way of hearth. The ensuing pollution have significantly elevated the acidity of worldwide precipitation, lowering selenium's skill to go into the meals chain. this case is being made worse by means of the frequent use of industrial fertilizers for the reason that their sulphates, nitrogen, and phosphorus all depress the uptake of selenium by way of plants. Deficiencies during this crucial hint aspect are being felt so much acutely in parts, reminiscent of sub-Saharan Africa, the place soil selenium degrees are evidently very low. Acid rain is creating a undesirable state of affairs worse, so expanding vulnerability to these viruses that encode glutathione peroxidase. Many populations also are being uncovered to a thinning ozone layer, heavy metals corresponding to mercury and cadmium, insecticides, and drug, tobacco, and alcohol abuse, all of which depress the human immune procedure, expanding vulnerability to viruses, together with HIV-1 and HIV-2. In July 2000, physicians and scientists from world wide met in Durban, South Africa for the XIII overseas AIDS convention. In a announcement, named after the town, 5,018 of them proclaimed that "HIV is the only explanation for AIDS."4 There are, in spite of the fact that, at the very least seven anomalies that strongly recommend that this traditional knowledge is wrong and that trust in it's blockading growth within the improvement of latest remedies for AIDS and of novel methods of stopping its unfold. to demonstrate, regardless of frequent unprotected promiscuous sexual intercourse in Senegal, HIV- 1 is diffusing very slowly, if in any respect, among the Senegalese.5 it's very obvious that during Africa, variations in soil selenium degrees are tremendously influencing who turns into contaminated with HIV-1 and who doesn't. certainly, the lately released Selenium international Atlas used the occurrence of HIV-1 as a surrogate degree of soil selenium degrees simply because real degrees are, as but, poorly confirmed in sub-Saharan Africa. an analogous courting has been documented within the United States6 the place there was an inverse dating, specially within the Black inhabitants, among mortality from AIDS and native soil selenium degrees. it really is good validated that folks who're HIV-positive steadily turn into progressively more selenium deficient.7 This decline, that is recognized to undermine immune services, isn't targeted to HIV-infection yet is visible in just about all infectious pathogens.8 besides the fact that, lower than basic conditions, the place demise doesn't take place, selenium degrees rebound quickly after restoration. HIV-1, in spite of the fact that, can successfully elude the safeguard mechanisms of the immune process, and will proceed to duplicate indefinitely, ceaselessly miserable serum selenium. therefore, the immune approach is compromised, permitting an infection by means of different pathogens that proceed to fritter away the host of selenium, permitting HIV-1 to copy extra simply, additional undermining immunity. for this reason, this courting among selenium and the immune process is one in all optimistic suggestions, within which a decline in both of those variables factors extra melancholy within the different. Termed the "selenium- CD4 T mobile tailspin" via the author,9 it's the cause that serum selenium degrees are a greater predictor of AIDS mortality than CD4 T phone counts. Like different optimistic suggestions structures, resembling avalanches and woodland fires, this can be very tricky to manage and profits momentum because it progresses. HIV-1, although, encodes the full selenoenzyme, glutathione peroxidase. because it replicates, as a result, it depletes its host not just of selenium but additionally of the opposite 3 parts of this enzyme: specifically, cysteine, glutamine, and tryptophan.10 AIDS, as a result, is a dietary deficiency disease because of a virulent disease. Its sufferers be afflicted by severe deficiencies of all 4 of those foodstuff that are chargeable for such signs as depressed CD4T lymphocyte count number, vulnerability to cancers (including Kaposi's sarcoma), melancholy, psoriasis, diarrhea, muscle losing, and dementia. linked infections reason their very own detailed signs and elevated hazard of loss of life. HIV-1 by myself, as a result, doesn't reason AIDS. It consists of a multiplicity of co-factors, in particular something that both depletes serum selenium degrees or depresses the immune method adequate to allow viral replication. Manipulating the "selenium-CD4T cellphone tailspin" by way of including this hint aspect to fertilizers and foodstuff stuffs opens new avenues for either prevention and therapy. This process has been proven to paintings on different viruses that encode glutathione peroxidase, comparable to Hepatitis B and C and the Coxsackievirus. The logical remedy of AIDS sufferers includes supplementation with selenium, cysteine, glutamine, and tryptophan, at the least to degrees at which deficiency indicators linked to a scarcity of those meals disappear. whereas this is most simply completed via supplementations, yes meals comprise increased degrees of these 4 nutrition. surprisingly sufficient, one of many excellent nutrients for a person who's HIV-seropositive would come with a cheeseburger to which Brazilnut flour were extra to the bun.
