I would’ve put this post up on my dedicated vitamin D blog but as it’s non-specific, I thought I’d put it here.
Award winning medical TV programme maker Joan Shenton is hosting a FREE screening of the controversial HIV/AIDS documentary House of Numbers at the Shortwave Cinema in London, on Sunday March 13 at 11am (running time 90mins).
This screening, which includes a chance to meet Ms. Shenton, is being held so as to feature in a documentary of her own based on her (unfortunately out-of-print) 1998 book Positively False.
Ms. Shenton is one of the interviewees in my upcoming debut book, whose ‘frontline’ journalistic experiences emphasises why HIV cannot be the exclusive cause of AIDS, or even at all. She has also criticised the cholesterol hypothesis as far back as the 1980s.
Brent W. Leung’s House of Numbers (a US film) is the winner of 13 film festival awards, but I would be surprised if many of you have even heard of it. I had wanted to see this on original release, but virtually no cinemas showed it in England. The Spectator magazine helped to create some early buzz around it before critics like Ben Goldacre (whose views I agree with on many other medical issues) helped shoot it down.
I’m not sure if HoN is a good documentary but I believe the dissident HIV/AIDS argument is strong, and with what success the film has had, it’s certainly opened a few more minds. I came to become an HIV dissident when researching how vitamin D could help AIDS patients and was surprised by how many holes there are in the official story and how vague public information about it is.
One exclusive cut clip that went up on YouTube featured the extraordinary admission from HIV/AIDS co-discoverer Luc Montagnier that HIV is not necessarily a death sentence and can be treated in simplistic ways. You can watch it below.
I will be at this event as an ordinary punter. If you want to attend too there may still be spaces left, read this flyer for details. I aim to put up a review of this screening next month.
