Overview

Tyree Johnson stands accused of first-degree murder in a South Carolina courtroom. His crime? Making love to his girlfriend after he had been diagnosed HIV-Positive.

The defense, however, claims there is reasonable doubt that Tyree's diagnosis was wrong-that, according to numerous scientific studies, these so-called "HIV tests" are fraught with errors, and have been ever since their inventor, Dr. Robert Gallo, lied on his patent application.

Furthermore, Tyree's lawyer argues that there is no scientific evidence that HIV is transmitted by heterosexual intercourse, and that Tyree's girlfriend died from taking lethal anti-retroviral drugs rather than from any HIV/AIDS illness.

Ripped from the headlines of today's newspapers, Are You Positive? Raises serious questions about whether anyone has ever been properly diagnosed as HIV-positive, and whether most people today are dying from the HIV medications prescribed by their doctors.

    Wow! Manipulating the AIDS Hysteria for profit.

    This a book that will make you think! It scared the heck out of me. Although the story is fictional, it is so believable that I found myself laying the book down over and over to go do internet searches. I needed to know if the facts on which the story is built, are true. I'm satisfied that the author built the story on a solid framework of facts. One theme in the book had to do with the frequent, unchallenged false "positive" results of HIV tests -- and then those unfortunate HIV "positive" people being treated with a medicine that eventually killed them. That was scary! A number of years ago when I was single, I requested an HIV test, even though I have always been 100% heterosexual and have never used any recreational drugs. A lady I cared a lot about insisted on the test before we could get intimate. My test gave "proof" that I was HIV negative. We are now married for 15 years. This book makes the point that the HIV test has been unreliable from the beginning. My HIV test could easily have been one of those tens of thousands of false positives. I would have been unfairly branded for life. And, I would almost certainly be dead from the treatment with the drug AZT.

    A true eye-opener

    This book puts the validity of HIV tests under the bus. Using an easy to understand format, the author walks you through the utterly remarkable history of these tests and shows you the truth behind a million dollar industry that has intentionally blinded us all for years. Thank you for restoring my sight!

    Truth about HIV

    I have not tested positive for the HIV antibody nor do I know anyone who has. I found this book in the Nook library looking for a crime novel. I also will not bother testing for the HIV antibody again since it does not cause Aides and the test is a lie. It's a shame that when the conspiricy theoryist's had the attention of everyone they took off on tangents instead of just speaking actual facts in evidence.

    Excellent. Makes you think it is true

    HIV is such a controversial issue. Seems ripped from today's headlines. Is it true or fiction? Basically it shows a reporter who has a very personal interest in the whole HIV controversy and the knowing sexual transmission of the disease.

    At least it was free...

    I don't know how I feel about this one. On one hand it really made me think. However to see that ending after reading almost 800 pages left me disappointed.
