Re: HIV Baby cured. (Or did baby's own immune system cure itself?)

Kocolicious ·
Isn't that amazing???? But! Of course, this got me to thinking. Hummmmm did they have this "cure" all along and now that the medical industry is changing decided to go ahead and "discover" the cure? Or did they feel especially sorry for this baby and gave it dose overload[knowing it would work]? You see, I still have a problem with the "cancer" crisis where this disease has made doctors millions of dollars in research and treatment and yachts and mercedes and mansions and vacations. Can't...

I feel some kind of way about this. Why? This child went through 30 hours of medical treatment of who knows what and authorized by who knows who. Secondly, there is a current cure for HIV, bone marrow transplant. There are currently 3 adults who went through this bone marrow treatment which has eradicated HIV from their bodies. I smell big pharma all over this.

9 reasons newly appointed tea party senator, Tim Scott, is worse than you think

sunnubian ·
By Jessica Roy / current.com / @CurrentJess On Monday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley announced she had picked Congressman Tim Scott to fill Jim DeMint’s Senate seat. On the surface, this seems like a good thing — Scott will be a desperately needed infusion of diversity in the Senate as its only black member. But the congressman isn’t exactly a progressive. In fact, he’s a conservative, a proud tea party conservative. Scott took office only last year, but he’s already done considerable...

I'm saddened that he will be carrying the name/description of being an "African American" Senator. In the same way that Clarence Thomas is considered an "African American" Supreme Court Justice. It's another sad day for Black people.

Well ... I don't really care that he opposes a "progressive" agenda ... to me, Tim Scott represents a mentality that not only is 'not good' for African Americans ... but is actually purposefully detrimental and harmful. It's one thing that these Tea Party types want to be fiscally 'hardcore' ... i.e., don't want to offer basic financial (gov't.) help to anybody in the belief that everyone should be helping themselves ... But, when that unreasonableness extends to vulnerable populations like...

A comment from that post said that they found that the women really did have an immunity, initially, where the constant exposure put their immune system into over-drive, killing the virus, But, once re-exposed After their immune system was able to kill the virus rendered them with the disease, as their immune system exhausted itself against the virus when it was able to kill it the first time.
