Ordeal of Christine Maggiore, HIV Dissenter, Ends with Her Untimely Death -- Part One

Cohen, Marcus A.

Townsend Letter;May2009, Issue 310, p46
The article focuses on Christine Maggiore, a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) dissenter. According to the author, the censure against Maggiore in the ABC story provided images of mud, or slime, in his mind, reminding him of his initial encounters with "quack-busters" and government officials and media hostile to Dr. Emanuel Revici and his alternative cancer treatment. The author stresses that individuals gifted in speaking or writing about question whether HIV has much do to with AIDS can expect the HIV-AIDS establishment to strike back constantly.
