Problems Associated With AIDS


Third Report from the


Session 1986-87


Minutes of Evidence (8 April-13 may 1987) and Memoranda

Ordered by The House of Commons to be printed 13 May 1987

60. Memorandum by Dr. John Seale, Royal Society of Medicine


No politician can make rational decisions to deal with Aids without

a clear understanding of the nature and severity of the epidemic, the

means of transmission of the virus, and the prospects for a cure or

preventive vaccine. The key scientific facts underlying the epidemic are

quite simple though Aids is perceived to be unusually complex and full of

scientific uncertainties. These perceptions have been produced by a few

scientists and others who have recklessly minimised the seriousness of

the epidemic and have fostered confusion and dangerous misconceptions.

The most important and urgent task for politicians, both in

Government and Parliament, is to force scientists to speak clearly,

precisely and honestly about the Aids epidemic. Half-truths, wishful

thinking, flawed scientific hypotheses and deceptions have been

perpetrated by scientists and allowed to flourish as conventional wisdom

aided and abetted by editors of scientific and medical journals. The

deceptions must be exposed with maximum publicity.

The public must be fully informed of the true nature of the threat

from the virus which faces us all. Once this is done the mass of the

population will accept measures essential to halt the spread of the

virus, even though they will inevitably require severe curtailment of the

liberty and civil rights of everybody, just as happens in war-time. The

longer the truth is obscured from the public, and the greater the

multitude of innocent people who die most horribly as a result, the more

ferocious will be the explosion of hatred and revenge against those

guilty of perpetrating the deceptions.

The virus has the properties of a skilled, devious, hidden and

implacable invader with the capacity and willingness to kill every man,

woman and child in our country. It may now be spreading amongst us

precisely because it has this capacity. It is unwise to assume that such

a force can be vanquished without taking actions which the people of

Britain accepted as entirely appropriate to fight two world wars;

particularly as dissemination of the virus is being actively encouraged

by some who wish to destroy our society.


1. Aids is a contagious, infectious, communicable disease caused by

a lentivirus (slow virus), a member of the family of retroviruses.

2. No lentivirus has been known to affect humans before the advent

of Aids.

3. Aids is a typical slow virus disease with a prolonged, silent

incubation period of great variability, but usually lasting several

years, followed by slowly progressive disease always ending in death.

4. An epidemic of a new slow virus disease spreading unchecked is

the ultimate virological nightmare, yet in none of the major scientific

or medical journals has this been spelled out clearly and the

implications discussed.

5. Death is caused by the Aids virus infecting, and slowly

destroying, cells in the brain, lungs, intestine, and the immune system.


1. Within five years of infection with the virus, 25 per cent of

people have developed full-blown Aids and all of them die. This is the

official conclusion of the US Public Health Service recently endorsed by

leading scientists from the National Academy of Sciences in Washington.

2. The ultimate mortality within twenty years of infection is

unknown as the virus has been spreading for only ten years. The

optimistic view held by a decreaseing number of virologists is that only

50 per cent of those infected will die. Many virologists now accept the

pessimistic view, that all people infected with the virus will eventually

be killed by it.

3. All virologists are agreed that once infected with the Aids

virus, people are potentially infectious to others for life.


1. In all people with anitbodies to the Aids virus, some virus

persists in brain and other cells from which it cannot be removed. In

contrast to most virus infections, antibodies to a lentivirus do not

provide protective immunity; they fail to neutralise or eliminate it.

Although many people infected with the Aids virus look and feel well for

several years, destruction of cells of the brain and immune system is

progressing slowly

2. The outlook for a successful vaccine is bleak. None is available

for the lentivirus diseases of animals. Search for a vaccine against

infectious anaemia of horses for eighty years, and against maedi-visna in

sheep for forty years, has proved futile. Indeed, when antibodies to a

lentivirus are produced artificially by vaccination, the vaccinated

animals die after subsequent infection more rapidly that those which are

not. In spite of many successful vaccines, it should be realised that

for the majority of viral and bacterial diseases vaccines do not work.


1. No simple, effective, curative drug, like penicillin, will be

available for Aids in the forseeable future because once a person is

infected, the viral genetic code is pernamently inserted into the human

genetic code of cells in the brain and other tissues. Any drug which

blocks replication of the virus, thereby halting the progress of the

disease, will have to be taken continuously for life. All drugs used so

far are highly toxic and expensive. If a cheap, apparently effective,

drug becomes available it will take several decades to be certain that it

is both effective and safe. Nevertheless, many companies will announce

"promising" new drugs and "breakthroughs" in the treatment of Aids for

simple commerercial motives.

2. The handling of the recent AZT clinical trials by the US

Government was particularly important. The US Public Health Service

insisted the trials cease long before any long-term benefit of the drug

had been shown, and before the manufacturing company suggested it,

thereby misleading the public into believing a "cure" for Aids was

already in the pipeline. Such disinformation weakens the political will

to implement the tough control measures required to halt the spread of

the virus.


1. Scientists and doctors have repeatedly stated as fact that the

Aids virus is fundamentally transmitted during sexual intercourse but is,

unfortunately, sometimes transmitted in blood. This is highly

misleading, though published laboratory and epidemiological evidence, and

editorials in scientific and medical journals, have been heavily slanted

to support this "fact".

2. In reality Aids is characteristically a blood transmitted

infection, which is only transmitted with difficulty during sexual

intercourse compared with the genuine sexually transmitted diseases

gonorrhoea and trichomoniasis. All the experimental and epidemiological

evidence is consistent with this view.

3. Obviously Aids is transmissible during sexual intercourse, but so

is influenza, glandular fever and scabies. Sexual intercourse is only

one of many ways by which the virus can be transmitted, and is by no

means the most efficient.

4. The illusion that Aids is essentially a sexually transmitted

disease arose from the first observations that Aids appeared to affect

only sodomites with numerous partners. However sodomy is not sexual

intercourse in the biological sense of the words. As we are dealing with

a very important biological event, the transmission of a lethal parasite

from one human host to another, it is essential that scientists use words

describing the transmission with the utmost precision.

5. In biological terms sexual intercourse means the union between

male and female which may result in reproduction of the species. In

mammals this invariably requires contact between male and female

genitalia. Consequently sexual intercourse between two men in the

biological sense is impossible.

6. Scientist who state, or imply, sodomy is sexual intercourse

without some qualification are being imprecise and misleading, whether

intentionally or not.

7. Homosexual men engaged in homosexual activities frequently insert

their fingers, fist, penis or tongue into the lower intestinal tract of

their partners. These manoeuvres transmit any virus which persists in

the blood for months or years with devastating efficiency, even though no

virus is present in either semen or saliva. This has been shown very

clearly with hepatatis B virus which, in prosperous communities, infects

the majority of homosexual men within three years of becoming sexually

active; whereas hepatitis B infection remains rare amongst heterosexual

men and women, even though they frequently change partners.


1. The Aids virus persists in an infectious state (ie as cell-free

virions) in blood and semen at levels up to 25,000 virions per

millilitre, according to the only published paper giving this critically

important information. Cell-free virions were detected easily in saliva

over two years ago, but quantitative studies have still not been


2. No infectious virion has been detected in semen according to the

only two detailed published studies on the subject, which between them

included a grand total of merely three men examined. In 10 per cent of

50 infected men, according to another report sent to me personally but

which gave few details, cell-associated virus has been detected in a few

white blood cells in semen, but never in spermatazoa.

3. Virions have been detected in the vaginal secretions in only

trivial quantities - about one per millitre - indicating that their

infectivity is minimal.

4. The scale of the deceptions and misinformation perpetrated by

virologists, clinicians and editors of scientific and medical journals

about the infectivity of genital secretions, compared with that of blood,

serum and saliva, has been astonishing. In the presence of a new, lethal

virus spreading amongst people, for which no vaccine or cure is in sight,

every sane person would assume that scientists have been working flat out

to verify precisely how it is transmitted.

5. On the contrary, having assumed for a variety of motives that

Aids is a sexually transmitted disease, like syphilis or gonorrhoea, a

negligible research effort has gone into the critical matter of

transmission. A few preliminary papers were published and their findings

have been repeatedly quoted as showing the opposite to what they actually

showed. When this was pointed out in letters to the editors of major

medical and scientific journals, publication has been refused. No

attempt has been made to check, double-check, and recheck the findings in

other laboratories, and in other countries, or to rectify published


6. As far as it goes, the tiny research effort into infectivity of

bodily fluids indicates that saliva is more infectious than genital

secretions, but that blood and serum is vastly more infectious than

either. Consequently the idea that condoms can have any significant

effect on the spread of Aids in a nation is utterly preposterous.

7. Governments all over the world are spending millions of pounds

advising their citizens to prevent Aids by using condoms on the basis of

manifestly fraudulent misrepresentation of scientific evidence presented

by scientists themselves.

8. The Aids virus is unusually stable outside the human body. It

retains almost all its infectivity after seven days in water at room

temperature and some after being kept dry for a week. A virus with this

degree of stability, which persists in the blood and is shed in saliva,

cannot possibly fail to be transmitted in many ways apart from sexual



1. A virus which persists in moderate quantities in the blood for

years and is shed in small quantities in saliva will be transmitted with

greater ease by some means than by others.

2. Injection of the virus through the skin in hypodermic needles is

the most certain method of transmission. This happens when blood-

contaminated hypodermics are re-used without sterilisation, as is common

amongst drug addicts in the West and in health care facilities in less

prosperous countries. It also occurs when virus-contaminated blood

tranfusions and clotting factor are administered.

3. Male homosexual contact of the finger, penis or tongue with the

rectal wall of another man transmits the virus very easily. 70 per cent

of the male homosexual population of San Franciso were infected within

six years of the arrival of the virus in the city, and nearly 30 per cent

of London homosexuals are already infected. The percentages are rising

remorselessly in large cities throughout the western world, unaffected by

the highly acclaimed "safe sex" propaganda.

4. Well over 50 per cent of new-born babies of infected mothers are


5. Moderately efficient means of transmission include mouth-to-mouth

and genital contact before and during normal sexual intercourse, oral

salivary contact between small children, needle-stick injuries to nursing

staff, and chance contact of sores or abrasions with blood, serum, saliva

or sputum.

6. Inefficient means of transmission include social kissing,

inhalation or respiratory aerosols caused by coughing or sneezing, and

blood-sucking insects.

7. Transmission by inhalation is only inefficient because of the

relatively small number of virions shed in saliva and bronchial

secretions. However if an Aids virion is inhaled into the lung it is

engulfed by an amoeba-like macrophage on the lining of the alveoli (air

sacs). It has been shown repeatedly in the laboratory that the Aids

virus readily infects macrophages, and the virus replicates within them,

thereby enabling infection of people to be iniated by this route.

8. Understandably, and wisely, the DHSS has officially advised all

British dental surgeons always to wear masks to avoid Aids virus

infection when using high speed drill. These drills make aerosols of

saliva similar to those produced by sneezing.

9. Chronic lymphoid interstitial pneumonitis is a well recognised

variety of pneumonia caused directly by infection of the lungs with the

Aids virus. It is similar to the pneumonia of maedi-visna in sheep and

is particularly common in children with Aids. When associated with

pulmonary tuberculosis, a very common complication of Aids, it is

inevitable that coughing will produce some aerosols containing tubercle

bacilli and the Aids virus. After the fluid in the aerosols evaporates

the minute dry flakes containing tubercle bacilli and Aids virus float in

the air indefinitely and both remain infectious for days.

10. The normal route of transmission of the maedi-visna lentivirus

between adult sheep is by respiratory aerosols when they are crowded

closely together in Winter shelters. Maedi-visna is not a sexually

transmitted disease of sheep.

11. The efficiency of the transmission of the Aids virus by biting

insects will depend upon the quantity of virions in the blood of the

bitten person, the anatomical structure of the biting parts of the

insects, their feeding habits and other factors.

12. Infectious anaemia of horses, a lentivirus disease, is

characteristically transmitted by large biting insects, particularly

stable flies and horse flies. It is not a sexually transmitted disease

of horses.

13. The Aids virus has been shown to remain infectious in the stomach

of bed bugs for at least two hours. It has been shown that it can infect

the cells of insects, including mosquitoes and cockroaches, both in

laboratory cell culture and in intact insects. Replication of the virus

in insect cells has not yet been demonstrated.


1. There is a key to estimating how long it will take for the people

of Britain to be saturated with the Aids virus, if its spread is allowed

to continue unchecked as at present. This is the application of

probability theory to the known facts about the virus, its pathogenesis,

the frequency of "contact", and the efficiency with which different

"contacts" transmit the virus.

2. The basic facts are that the entire population is susceptible to

infection, and once people are infected they remain potentially

infectious to others for life.

3. As the number of people infected rises the probability of

transmission during any particular "contact" between individuals also


4. Initially the virus was introduced into Britain from the United

States by homosexual men who soon infected others by having frequent,

efficient, "contacts" -sodomy with strangers. As the number of infected

homosexuals rises the probability of infection being transmitted during

one "contact" rises at first exponentially, but then at a slower doubling

rate as saturation with the virus of the homosexual population is


5. Once some intravenous drug addicts were infected, a further,

frequent, efficient "contact", self-injection with shared needles,

rapidly spread the virus amongst addicts.

6. As numbers of infected homosexuals and addicts increased,

efficient "contacts" rarely performed - such as receiving a blood

transfusion, or clotting factor, or having a baby - infected more and

more people.

7. Once a critical mass of infected people has been created by

highly efficient "contacts", then "contacts" which are only moderately

efficient but occur very frequently - such as normal sexual intercourse

or small children playing together - will spread the virus in ever

widening circles throughout the population.

8. Finally, highly inefficient "contacts" which occur very

frequently indeed, such as coughing and sneezing in public, and being

bitten by insects, will infect many people as millions of infected

persons interact with the non-infected, and saturation of the entgire

British population becomes unstoppable.



Homosexual men

1. Homosexual men have been the most determined and effective in

distorting the truth about Aids.

2. They have been so effective because there is a scattering of

homosexuals amongst all the key professional groups involved -

scientists, doctors, medical editors, journalists, lawyers, politicians

and priests.

3. The initial impact of Aids on homosexuals in the West inevitably

resulted in an unusually high proportion of them becoming involved with

the disease since it first surfaced. Many of the men who are

particularly knowledgeable about and dedicated to, Aids research,

treatment, legislation, publication and education are homosexuals.

4. Most in the professions are only identifiable as homosexuals to

other men with similar tastes - few have "come out" and even the wives of

those who are married are usually unaware of their habits. Hence they

automatically form a type of secret society without even trying, with

wide ramifications across professional, institutional and national


5. Homosexual men have been vectors of the virus throughout the

western world and if it had not been for their activities very few poeple

in prosperous countries would now be infected. Their oft-repeated

statement that they are the major victims of the virus is true, but it is

also true that they have spread the virus to each other by their

practices and then onward to the rest of the population.

6. Many do not wish to face reality because of guilt, most do not

wish to change their ways, and a few seeing death and destruction facing

themselves and their friends are dedicated to destroying the rest of

society with them.

7. All wish to deny the reality that restricting the freedom of

homosexuals to infect each other and other people, is essential if our

society is not to be destroyed by the virus.



1. Every biological scientist who has dispassionately studied the

virus and the epidemic knows that the origins of the virus could lie in

the developments of modern biology, just as the origins of the nuclear

bomb was modern physics.

2. Most biological scientists have not yet come to terms with the

terrible truth and have devoloped various neurotic reactions to cope with


3. Many have developed a selective denial of reality and genuinely

cannot see what is happening. Most who see it keep quiet, but increasing

numbers are talking privately though they still lack the moral courage to

speak out in public. They still hope it is a nightmare which will vanish

with tomorrow's dawn.

4. Some who know perfectly well what has happened are deliberately

fudging scientific data to keep the heat off them and fellow members of

their molecular biological "club".


Editors of Scientific and Medical Journals.

1. Medical and scientific editors have misled their professional

colleagues about the nature and severity of the Aids epidemic for five

years. By selective acceptance or rejection of original papers and

letters, and by selection authors to write "safe" editorials and review

articles, they have perpetuated dangerous misconceptions.

2. As the harsh reality of what is happening becomes ever more

obvious editors have developed a range of neurotic reactions similar to

those of the scientists.



1. Most doctors are incapable of conceiving the scale of the

problems as only three hundred people have died from Aids in Britain in

the last five years, but 40,000 die each year of cancer of the lung. How

can Aids be so important?

2. An epidemic slow virus disease is new to medical science and its

significance largely incomprehensible to doctors because it is outside

both their practical experience and theoretical training.

3. Epidemics were supposed to have been abolished, along with the

old fever hospitals and TB sanatoria twenty-five years ago. It is

difficult to change cherished beliefs. It is assumed that scientists

will soon have a vaccine and the Aids epidemic will disappear like a bad

flu epidemic.

4. Doctors who have treated many patients with Aids are profoundly

shocked at their own, and modern medicine's inability to restore the

health of so many young patients. Although death be delayed, remissions

are temporary. Deterioration is so protracted, often lasting years, that

many Aids patients kill themselves as a means of escape.

5. Many young doctors working only with Aids patients soon become

depressed themselves. The term "Aids burn-out" is now widely used in

America - it has similarities with war-time battle exhaustion.

6. Many senior doctors in charge of numerous Aids patients develop

profoundly neurotic attitudes which enable them to cope with their job by

selective denial of reality. In support of their patients for whom they

can do so little medically, they fiercely defend their rights of

confidentiality, and freedom of association, totally ignoring public

health responsibilities to ensure that others are now infected. They are

regularly consulted by Government and the Media and other doctors on how

to control the epidemic.



1. In the face of a lethal disease, journalists and media editors

have been frightened to contradict the conventional wisdom being put

across by the scientists. There has been no serious attemp at

investigative journalism into the wealth of scientific scandals

surrounding Aids.

2. They have often given way to the tremendous pressure put upon

them by scientists and homosexuals to understate the seriousness of the

epidemic and, in the last two years, have capitulated to demands that

Aids is portrayed as an "ordinary" veneral disease.

3. Understandably, as in a war that is going badly, all news of

break throughs with cures and vaccines are given lavish cover. These

lull politicians and public intal fatal inaction.



1. Leading politicians from all parties in all nations have, till

very recently, hardly mentioned Aids in public. Accepting the earlier

views of scientists that it was just a homosexual disease, and the

revised view that it is only a veneral disease, they know that taking

Aids seriously would have gained them few votes.

2. No prominent politician has thought there was reason to doubt the

much publicised opinions of scientists and public health doctors

concerning the facts about Aids.


1. People with Aids are categorised as belonging to a small number

of "risk groups" giving the false impression that the vast majority of

people cannot get Aids.

2. Aids is portrayed as only a behavioural disease caused by sexual

and narcotic misdemeanors. This implies that if anybody gets Aids it is

their own fault.

3. Emphasis on transmission of the virus during sexual intercourse,

and education as a solution to the epidemic, implies that the disease

will disappear with modified behaviour. This misses the point that as

the epidemic explodes infection by chance, non-sexual, contact becomes

ever more common.

4. By equating sodomy with sexual intercourse the impression is

given that homosexuals have just been unlucky to get infected before

heterosexuals. In reality homosexual activity has spread the virus

through the population at a vastly greater speed that normal sexual

intercourse could achieve.

5. The value of blood tests for diagnosis of Aids virus infection is

repeatedly denigrated by those who do not want them introduced

compulsorily. In fact the blood test is an unusually reliable diagnostic


6. The suffering of those with Aids is highlighted while ignoring

the suffering of those who will get Aids in the future if appropriate

steps are not taken to stop its spread.

7. The rights of those infected with the virus are stressed, while

the rights of the uninfected to be protected from infection with a lethal

virus are ignored and glossed over. Protection of the life of its

citizens is one of the major obligations of the State.

8. Misinformation is perpetuated by homosexuals actively obstructing

the publication, in the scientific or general press, of facts and

conclusions which they want suppressed.


1. The most urgent step to be taken is to break the pervasive grip

by homosexuals on the information and disinformation which has emanated

for so long from the journals of science and medicine, and from much of

the media. Once this has been done other scientists, doctors and

politicians can stress accurately the reality of the situation.

2. Once the truth is known and publicised the steps required to halt

the epidemic become more obvious and less controversial.

3. Speed is of the essence because every day that is lost will

increase the human misery which, in any event, will be vast.

4. We are facing a national catastrophe equal to any in the history

of the nation. The life of every citizen is at stake. Death from Aids

is a protracted horror unequalled by other diseases.

5. The only way to halt the spread of the virus is to indentify all

those who are infected by compulsory testing. Government must then take

whatever steps are required to ensure that those infected do not pass the

virus on to anyone else.

6. The longer this action is delayed the greater will be the task

when it is finally undertaken, and the greater the danger that the spread

of the virus will then be unstoppable.

7. The actions required by Government are comparable to those taken

in waging a war of survival.

8. The war against Aids is a war of survival. If we lose Britain

and all her people will perish.
