Hello everyone.
I'm not an biology student, I'm actually working on a thesis about the different intepretations on th body from western orthodox and eastern alternative point of view. My question here is the following:
Is there any debate, controversy or further investigation about th isolation of HIV virus, his real toxicity etc. in the centers of study of biology.
Thank you very much for your explanations.
Ki nd regards.
Joan Diez

No controversy that I ever heard of (but I am not HIV specialist) in any serious setting. I think there was enough research and money spent on the subject that if there was a problem in the link between AIDS and HIV it would have surfaced rapidly and with a lot of noise.
