Scoop Feedback - AIDS, Mosquitos and Selenium


Thanks for your site.
Best news in NZ.

I noticed the article on AIDS and mosquitos/pharmaceuticals from the UN.

While it looks good at first sight, it is important to remember that more immediate help is already at hand without the terrible side effects associated with the AIDS medications from the pharmaceutical companies; medications that are to a great extent ineffective anyway.

The well-known researcher/author Dr. Harold Foster has two articles entitled "AIDS and the Seleno-Enzyme Solution."

These deal with the relationship between - simply put - AIDS and the trace element selenium.

Places in Africa with high concentrations of selenium have a low incidence of AIDS while countries with low concentrations conversely have a high incidence of AIDS. He also offers a protocol for simple and effective treatment.

In the past I have contacted him myself and found him to be very helpful. He even providing information in Chinese for us to supply to our clients as some of his papers have already been published in China where, of course, AIDS is a huge problem.

Even if you can't publish both articles, could you possibly write a short article with references to the source material which is available on the Internet? I'm sure you will find him most agreeable and helpful.

These articles provide an important balance to the typical fare dished up by the UN and the drug companies which has basically led us nowhere in the past 20 years or so that AIDS has been on the scene.

Thanks for looking into it.

I'm sure many people will be thankful to read the information.
