<TABLE ><TR><TD><FONT size=2>I had to share this. I ran across this lovely little graphic while doing a bit of research. This came from some univeristy website detailing procecures for different diagnostic tests. This was of course from the HIV page. What made me laugh was the description under the cute little picture of HIV (note; illustration, not actual picture). It says, <BR><BR><b>HIV is the virus that leads to advanced HIV or AIDS</b><BR><BR>I thought, wow, now we have the regular version of HIV and also the ADVANCED version of HIV! Does the advanced version have more spikes? Does it infect more cells? What? Now I m really confused :-)<BR><BR>Chris<BR><BR></FONT></TD></TR></TABLE>

Of course, ALL of these symptoms of "advanced HIV disease" are always attributed to "HIV", which, as any reader of this forum knows by now, is itself a <a target=_top href="http://www.virusmyth.net/aids/data/epreplypd.htm">PHANTOM</a>.<BR><BR>Rod Knoll,<BR>Founder,<BR><a target=_top href="http://www.aidsrc.org">AIDS REALITY CHECK</a><BR><BR>?</FONT></TD></TR></TABLE>
