ABSTRACT
The article recounts the ordeals of Christine Maggiore, a prominent dissenter against the basic tenets of the conventional approach to AIDS. Maggiore was drafted into AIDS activism after being diagnosed with AIDS. In a turnabout in 1995, she co-founded Alive and Well AIDS Alternative, an organization that shares crucial information on HIV and AIDS unavailable from mainstream sources. Her position of dissent provoked condemnation from the AIDS orthodoxy, mainly through the press. The other occasion of her ordeal was the sudden death of her daughter Eliza Jane. A coroner's report attributed the death to AIDS-related pneumonia, but a review of the medical evidence by a pathologist indicated that the death resulted from an acute allergic reaction to amoxicillin.
