Controversial AIDS reporter Celia Farber collects twenty years of investigative work on AIDS.

Building on her much discussed cover story in Harper’s Magazine—“Out of Control: AIDS and the Corruption of Medical Science”—Celia Farber’s Serious Adverse Events: An Uncensored History Of AIDS asks important questions about the costs and results of the two-decade long “war on AIDS.”

Here Farber conducts new interviews with controversial AIDS dissidents, including UC Berkeley’s Peter Duesberg, UNAM’s Harvey Bialy, and Nobelist Kary Mullis. Their views on HIV and cancer—rarely discussed in the mainstream press—are considered at length.

Also included are accounts of some of the most dramatic and controversial questions caught up in the fight against AIDS. Farber investigates AIDS co-factors, unexplained causes of immunodeficiency (HIV-negative AIDS), estimates of the AIDS epidemic in Africa, and, perhaps most importantly, drug treatment plans. In 1989, Farber was the first magazine journalist to call attention to the dangers of high-dose AZT monotherapy. In 2000, she took aim at David Ho’s “hit hard, hit early” treatment plan. In both cases, Farber’s suspicions turned out to be correct. AIDS drugs, when improperly prescribed or promoted, can be much more deadly than AIDS itself.

Farber’s candor and extensive research sheds new light on the AIDS epidemic and its important effects on our current state of medical research.

If you have, as most have, been entirely unaware of the shocking "underground" and "officially disapproved of" (Well-nigh censored.) contentious views and contrary analyses of "HIV/AIDS" as widely published as *indisputable fact* you owe it to yourself to explore Celia Farber's "Serious Adverse Effects - An Uncensored History of AIDS" fully and, inasmuch as possible, a willingness to keep your mind open and inquisitive as possible. It might fairly be said that a journalist such as Celia Farber has managed to encapsulate her many years of involvement with the subject of "HIV/AIDS" as would be feasibly possible in this short book which would be no small feat. For most, by far, there is no shortage of things to be learned in these pages. That I can guarantee.
