House of Numbers by Brent Leung

In tonight's show we bring you a gripping interview with American film maker Brent Leung, whose documentary on AIDS, House of Numbers, has collected a swag of awards at film festivals across the United States.  The interview was conducted on the Radio Skid Row 88.9 FM breakfast show in Sydney on 21 Jan 2010.

The film explores a controversy which has been all but hidden from the general public due to blatant censorship in mainstream media over several decades, and consists of a series of interviews with some of the most distinguished biomedical scientists of our age, including two Nobel Prize winners.

At its core the controversy over AIDS is easy to state: there are many qualified experts who vigorously assert the HIV does not cause AIDS.

This claim however belies deeper questions about whether AIDS is really a disease at all, since the label is applied in different countries based on quite different criteria. An added complication is the fact that there are major uncertainties about whether the HIV anti-body tests actually work, which has led some scientists to question the fundamental existence of the HIV virus.

The AIDS controversy may be an obscure and perplexing scientific problem, but the politics of AIDS is a reality which affects billions of people all over the world, leading to public policies which, if based on flawed science, may have caused the death of millions by the use of highly toxic chemical treatments.

Nobel Prize winner Luc Montaigner states in the film that AIDS in Africa could be eradicated by improved nutrition and the provision clean drinking water instead of costly and unproven programs of mass medication and vaccination. This approach was also advocated by former president of South Africa, Thabo Mbecki, who was pilloried in the press as an "AIDS Denialist".

This broadcast is one of the most important we have done at TNRA - please share it around and take a good look into the issues raised.

Hi Sabretruth, and thanks for your comment. There is an underlying problem with your terms of reference. The terms “AIDS” and “HIV positive” are assumed by you to have clear definitions - however the reality could not be farther from the case. THis goes to the heart of the whole problem and it is the reason for Brent’s film. Duesberg is not held up by Brent as having the answer - he provides one opinion in a spectrum of opinion.<br><br>AIDS is a very messy and difficult subject to discuss because the basic underlying science has been so corrupted. <br><br>You can be HIV positive in one country and negative in another. That is because the tests are not uniform.<br><br>The same can be said for an AIDS diagnosis. People can be diagnosed with AIDS just because of a low T-cell count even without any other symptoms.<br><br>If you present with tuberculosis and you are HIV negative, it is called tuberculosis. If you are HIV positive, it is called AIDS. <br><br>This is all compounded by the fact that the medicines are so toxic and can produce the very symptoms of AIDS.<br><br>The study you referenced would be useful only if the sero-positive group stayed off the anti-retrovirals. This of course never happens.

I was curious about the location of the first document under Related Links (HIV-AIDS hypothesis out of touch with South African AIDS – A new perspective). After reading the paper I checked the digital object identifier (DOI) hyperlink for citing the paper, doi:10.1016/j.mehy.2009.06.024, which forwards to a page on showing that the article has been withdrawn.<br><br>“This Article-in-Press has been withdrawn pending the results of an investigation.<br><br>“The editorial policy of Medical Hypotheses makes it clear that the journal considers “radical, speculative, and non-mainstream scientific ideas”, and articles will only be acceptable if they are “coherent and clearly expressed.” However, we have received serious expressions of concern about the quality of this article, which contains highly controversial opinions about the causes of AIDS, opinions that could potentially be damaging to global public health. Concern has also been expressed that the article contains potentially libelous material.<br><br>“Given these important signals of concern, we judge it correct to investigate the circumstances in which this article came to be published online. When the investigation and review have been completed we will issue a further statement. Until that time, the article has been removed from all Elsevier databases.<br><br>“The Publisher apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. The full Elsevier Policy on Article Withdrawal can be found at”<br><br>It is indicated that the article was “Available online 19 July 2009”, but not when it was withdrawn nor what the status of the investigation is.

I appreciate the problems with the definitions and the problems you mention with the fact that nowadays virtually everyone diagnosed is on the meds, but the study I cited doesn’t mention that they were on retrovirals, the test wouldn’t be of any use if they were.<br><br>I’m concerned about the documented cases of people who refuse to take the meds due to either a dislike of mainstream western medicine or because they believe the Duesberg hypothesis and they die, despite the fact that they live healthy lives.<br><br>I’m not saying you or Duesberg are wrong, I’m merely saying that there seems to be evidence that contradicts it. There is the possibility that the people who died not taking the meds were set up or killed by the Govt/big pharma to make it look like AIDS to end the debate (I wouldn’t put it past them) but I still need more evidence.<br><br>It’s just a pity that the medical establishment is entirely corrupted, it’s virtually impossible at the moment to prove the HIV AIDS connection false, here’s hoping that the political situation changes thanks in no small part to great sites like 911oz and your work Hereward.

I would like to see a study specifically created to monitor the long term health of HIV+ people who don’t take the retrovirals (or other recreational drugs). <br><br>I think Duesberg is isolated in his opinion that an HIV+ test has zero diagnostic value. <br><br>The question in many people’s minds is what does the HIV+ result really mean? <br><br>For example, it may be an indicator of some health risk based on correlation rather than causation as there are many cases of HIV+ people leading perfectly healthy lives off the drugs. There are also cases of non-medicated HIV+ people like Christine Maggiore dying from conditions considered to be AIDS indicators.<br><br>However, unless the construct “HIV+” is more rigorously defined it seems that there is little chance of getting any good research results. You would want to know exactly which test they did (western blot, eliza etc..) and then you would want to plot those results against their ongoing health.

By Hereward on 2010 01 28 - 04:55:53

As a person diagnosed 19 years ago as HIV+ and does not take medications in Sydney I thank you for bringing this subject into the awareness of more people. <br><br>Please also be aware that doctors are not willing to study us or follow our alternative approach therefore giving a false perspective of statistics. (Just because that we are not in studied does not mean we do not exist.) Personally I found the only way I could continue with alternative therapies without being constantly pressured to take drugs was to discontinue seeing HIV specialists as have other people I know.<br><br> The image engrained in peoples minds of a skeleton AIDS victim was when AZT was heavily prescribed…luckily I only took AZT for one month in 1992 then stopped or I would have been added to their AIDS statistics. (Doctors now except that AZT was too toxic but always use the “ but we did the best we could at the time’ defence.)  There are many good intentioned Doctors out there but risk being struck off unless they follow the orthodoxy.<br><br> The only ammunition they have in convincing people to take the toxic medication is the FEAR of becoming an AZT victim. Before AZT the cause of immune deficiency in AIDS patients was 1. Overly prescribed antibiotics taken to sustain constant sexual/ viral infections caused by promiscuous lifestyles.2. Heavy recreational drug use. These days the drugs are less toxic thus taking longer to show side effects. Show me a person who has visual effects of HIV – lipodystrophy, premature ageing, bloating, wasting etc and I’ll show you a person on meds. These days liver failure is a major cause of death. This did not occur before simply because the drugs were so toxic their entire bodies failed.<br><br> I was around in the epidemic and watched 1000’s of beautiful people wither away. 100’s were friends who I had lengthy discussions with at the time. The only difference between these people and me was that I did not blindly follow my doctor’s advice. I now look forward to living long enough to see the end of this medical madness. These people did not die in vain. Their deaths will eventually help expose the larger pharma fraud.<br><br>S

Although I agree with many of their ideas, the forces reigned against RAM are too great, violent, statist and reactionary for them to remain a non-political, broad based, multi-ethnic, community protest group for much longer. The Left and their Antifa nihilist fellow travelers are already pushing them towards the extreme Right, by calling them racists and Islamophobes and so on. Whilst the extreme Right have aligned themselves with RAM. With fascists of the Left and Right pressuring them they will not be able to remain beyond the Left-Right divide and will inevitably move to the Right - the extreme Right. Which is already happening. A development which will alienate decent Australians of all ethnic backgrounds many of whom currently support them. 

The RAM leadership have already established open alliances with the Patriotic Front (the ape in the photograph is a Patriot Front supporter at a recent Richmond demonstration) Australia First and Golden Dawn, a Greek neo-Nazi party. Members of these collectivist groups are currently attending RAM demonstrations all over Australia.

There is a real need in Australia to establish a political movement beyond the Left-Right divide and their vested interests, a movement that questions the current direction Australia is heading i.e. the direction the Left/Right and their extremes would like to take it; that questions the efficacy of state sponsored multiculturalism, as opposed to a proper, non-discriminatory immigration policy; that questions the validity of political correctness; that is politically neutral, anti-war and pro environment; that is opposed to all collectivists ideologies (fascisms of the Left and Right); that would dismantle the power pyramids of corporations and banks and their ability to impact on government; that would dissolve all anti-terror laws and all laws that impose on the rights and freedom of the individual and the people.

I second Keith’s assertion that Mike Holt from Restore Australia is very much a fake.  He bangs on about Halaal being a scam and money maker for Islam (and no I don’t support Halaal whatsoever), but makes excuses for its counterpart Kosher as being a somehow legitimate.  Double standards?  When I confronted him about this fact he went off on a convoluted tirade about Israel being some sort of “Bastion of Democracy” in the middle east…Really!, I will leave that one up to the readers to decide on.  I found that MH came across as disingenuous to say the least.

Without doubt, TNR is one of the best, if not the best alternative news source on the net. Which doesn’t mean Herewood is always right. His job, I believe, is to present the facts as he sees them as an objectively as possible, without fear or favor.  For this, he has my respect and support. But I believe he needs to be careful and to think a little deeper about the problems of “racism,” in Australia. He has labelled the Reclaim Australia Movement as racist. I’m wondering if his objectivity is a little weak on this point, a little without foundation.

Of course all political movements have its fringe groups and individuals. We make a distinction between, for example, a Muslim and a fundamentalist Muslim (Islamist), and by so doing we don’t claim that all Muslims are blood thirsty fanatics. If its good for the Muslims, then its good for RAM, which is bound to attract a few lunatics and real racists. But to brand the entire movement as “racist” is wrong; it is the same ploy that is used by the mainstream media and its left-wing, establishment Marxist boot boys.

One of the first things I noticed when i attended a RAM rally recently were the amount of non-white people in attendance, including Aboriginals. In fact the main banner of RAM contains an Australian flag and an Aboriginal flag. Speakers at their rallies have included Jews, Arabs, Indians, Aboriginals, Chinese and so on. What does this tell you? Is this really a fascist-Nazi-racist movement whose stated aim are the eradication and exclusion of other cultures, in place of some sort of Aussie white Reich, or is this just propaganda that is being propagated by the left for their own political interests. Consequently, we all know where the culmination of their politics have led, historically speaking, which are to the imposition of terror and dictatorships.

We can be thankful for small mercies, in terms of the Left, which today mostly tends to attract collectivists, establishmentarians and the privileged sons and daughters of the upper bourgeoisie, who seems to share one thing in common, nativity….

Mike Holt from Restore Australia is very much a fake.  He hasn’t even been citizen for but a few years.  But, he makes out like he was born there.  ALSO - this guy spent 30 years in Thailand working shady businesses.  I would wager that his primary purpose in being an activist is that he wants to make money off selling merchandise.

good to see you putting out some new shows heraward

freely the banana girl is to a certain extent a troll, as is her boyfriend durian rider. they have been trolling the fitness community on youtube for some time… and yes they are extreme but they are also trolls. They use their trolling to spread their message. currently, another dude called vegangains is trolling the fitness community as well.

i am a vegetarian, and it was seeing this documentary on the pork industry that started me on the vegetarian path. for anyone interested, its pretty off the charts disturbing and its australian as well. its pretty much made by dudes breaking into pork farms and filming what they find

Would the world be better if people cared where their food came from? probably, they might then care about other things too

do you become a better person if you dont eat meat? i feel like a better person mainly because animals aren’t being hurt because of me. i dont feel humans have to eat meat really… or at least not much. How can you watch that documentary on pork, know that that is pretty much whats going on and turn a blind eye to it? I think its basic empathy and just saying well ‘i like bacon so yeah’ is in my opinion wrong and i can see freleys point of view to an extent. In my opinion, at least these people believe in something. i see my money as my vote, henceforth im ethical as to what i do with it. free range eggs became mainstream for exactly this reason… although im pretty sure woolies and coles lobbied the state to change the definition of the word ‘free range’ at some point. I dont eat beef because the amount of resources that go into growing a cow are pretty crazy. Think about how much grass that cow needs to eat before it is harvested and how much space it requires. think of how many vegies you could grow in the same space with the same amount of water. lamb? comon, think about what your doing here… but that being said i think most vegans are total loons. People like freeley should be advocating for the destruction of lions and tigers, as lions and tigers murder other animals in truly horrific style. if we humans are smart enough to not harm animals, then we should be stopping the animals that harm other animals from existing. Freeley also kills birds when she flies in aeroplanes so she is a hypocrite.

feminism is one of the biggest problems in society today and although there is some valid historical basis to it, the liberation of the human female from their biology is in my opinion largely a product of the technological advance of humans. sufferagettes where never machine gunned on the streets, unlike the men that where drafted and sent off to war to die just a few years earlier. as technology has advanced, women have advanced as well, however now its going way too far and is pretty blatantly anti male in many respects. i view feminism in its modern context as a tool of the social marxists that really isnt doing society a great deal of good at this time. its screwing up gender dynamics and is wrecking women and men for each other. i see it as low frequency, lowest common denominator idiocy, just like a lot of the the race baiting ‘is this racist’ stuff getting around that is being perpetuated pretty much as a distraction, divide and conquer strategy by the power elite. idiots love this kind of bicker and beef… it would be funny if it wasn’t so serious


I agree with steven friar. gods a maniac

good show… keep making them

Almost two months since the last broadcast! How the hell can you expect people to donate when you don’t broadcast? Looks like the ship of truth has sprung a leak. This broadcast has been part of my life almost since its inception…it is one of the few alternative news sources that hasn’t gone off the deep end, by dilution credible information with crap e.g. Fairdinkum Radio and Info Wars…Pittard started FR with some incredibly interesting material, but then he flipped…Today he sounds like a fundamentalist preacher, the Christian equivalent to a Fanatical Islamist. As an atheist, I think he’s really ###### up a potentially good show. As for Info Wars, all they would have to do to improve is dump Alex Jones, what a shit-for-brains. I reckon Jones and Pittard are allowed to proliferate, because they’re so stupid and harmless. I suppose they have some entertainment value, and along with David Icke are living examples of how low the alternative media has sunk. Truth News Radio is, or should I say was, way ahead of them all ahead of them all in terms of credibility How sad that its come to this.
