For 22 years, people with HIV and AIDS have been banned from entering the U.S. It’s pretty difficult to throw a global AIDS conference under such circumstances, which is why the policy is coming to an end.

The ban kept the U.S. in awkward company. Saudi Arabia and Libya have similar immigration rules. —PZS

BBC:

Rachel Tiven, head of the campaign group Immigration Equality, told the BBC that the step was long overdue.

“The 2012 World Aids Conference, due to be held in the United States, was in jeopardy as a result of the restrictions. It’s now likely to go ahead as planned,” she said.

In October, President Obama said the entry ban had been “rooted in fear rather than fact”.

OK, don’t go all mental before you do your research, but HIV does not cause AIDS. It’s a multi-billion dollar industry, so ‘nuff said on why the hoax exists.

Overview of PhD’s who have broken the blockade in order to save lives:

If you have only a little time, say 10 minutes, this very short transcript of a very short lecture is sufficient to fully dispel the basic HIV/AIDS myth:
http://www.virusmyth.com/aids/hiv/pdlecture.htm (at least read this extremely short article before going off half-cocked, remember this the world’s top virologist stating unequivocally that HIV does not and can not cause AIDS. He volunteered to be injected with a large dose of HIV in return for a world-wide venue to speak, when a bunch of mainstream quackademic made him a BET. They then REFUSED to take him up on it!)

If instead you have an hour or so to watch a movie that is very professional, cogent, well-researched and features interviews dozens of world-leading PhD’s who have PROVED that HIV does not and can not cause AIDS, here you go:

Please don’t just blow an emotional gasket. The science is incontrovertible, I PROMISE! (I’m a Scientist grin Do check this info out, PLEASE, and then make an informed comment, pro or con. If we can make this information mainstream, we can save millions. Currently, AZT is killing hundreds of thousands per year in yet another Big Pharma criminal scam. Learn the science and then do something about it!
