I170118.jpgt has never ceased to amaze me that once the Clinton Administration coined the phrase "political correctness," and published what would eagerly be accepted by the mainstream media as the official politically-correct lexicon of proper diction, the term, AIDS, became no longer an acceptable phrase to describe people affected with the Hepatitis C Virus. That's because, as the leftwing Huffington Post reported on Feb. 2, 2016, "...the topic of HIV and AIDS was on the main stage of every news outlet in the U.S. and abroad...For gay men, it was a source of constant fear and anxiety...Medical researchers were pushed to do whatever it took to make the death toll drop. In the late 90s after anti-retroviral medications came onto the market HIV drifted away, except for the worst of nightmares."

AIDS, in the beginning, was a third world disease not caused by casual homosexual sex. The AIDS genome is one of the heartiest viruses in the world. In medical or dental offices where medical instruments are sterilized after usage, a temperature of 400°F is needed to kill the AIDS virus. It's unlikely that the livers of either the sooty mangabey monkey or the common chimpanzee and its cousin, the pygmy chimpanzee which commonly ended up as dinner fare of the natives in West Africa were cooked with a thermometer to make certain dinner was safely prepared. But that's likely how SIV entered the human genome.

We know the global AIDS epidemic that began in Africa in the 1960s or 70s leaped from a rare simian immunodeficiency virus [SIV] that destroyed the function of the livers of the affected animals and resulted in the death of the host. The transfer from simian to human occurred only because the host monkey was part of the diet of the natives in the Guinea-Bissau area in Senegal, West Africa.

The second and third hosts of SIV were the two species of the sooty mangabey monkey in Senegal, West Africa whose blood naturally carried the simian immunodeficiency virus, SIVsmm, ultimately produced what would become known as HIV-2. Early investigations of the transfer of SIV from ape to human centered on the common West and Central Africa chimpanzee. Research scientists trying to recreate the history of HIV-AIDS decided the reports of the common chimpanzee transfer of SIV to humans preceded the Senegali epidemic and thus, called that human immunodeficiency virus HIV-1 and the sooty mangabey cross-over, HIV-2.

Revisionist reporters suggest that AIDS has been around at least since the 1930s, basing their supposition of three things. First, an obscure writer in Europe claimed that when an unidentified man died from an uncategorized virus in the Congo in 1956, the doctor treating him, Dr. G. Baker preserved a blood sample. After AIDS was identified, the blood sample was verified as HIV-1. Dr. Baker contracted the same mystery illness and died from it in 1966.

On June 28, 1959 Ardouin Antonio, a 49-year-old Jamaican died from a yeast fungus called pneumocystis jirovecii. The fungus is usually found in people with lung cancer caused by AIDS. Revisionist journalists in the gay community found a snippet in a medical article to support their view that Patient Zero was not a gay man because in the pre-AIDS world the daughter of a Norwegian sailor, Arvid Noe, contracted AIDS in 1974 and died of kidney failure in January, 1975. She was followed in death, in 1976, by her father—who also died of AIDS.

Advocates opposing the Zero AIDS victim theory argued that Wayne University in Detroit, Michigan would not have invested millions of dollars to find a cure for AIDS before the virus had been cultured and named, thereby suggesting AIDS predated the dubbing of Gaten Dugas, a 31-year old Canadian airline steward as AIDS Victim Zero.in 1984 by the Centers for Disease Control. Dugas.jpgHowever, what Wayne University was trying to synthesize was a cancer-killing drug, not one to kill a disease it did not know existed.

Gaten Dugas became voraciously homosexually active in 1971 at the age of 19. A few years later Dugas was a flight attendant for an airline which traveled all over the western hemisphere and Europe. As the CDC begin investigating illicit homosexual liaisons in America's largest cities (which quickly developed into a global homosexual network, they found Dugas to be at the center of most of the hubs of the network they uncovered. As the CDC joined with the World Health Organization to investigate gay bars and bathhouses worldwide, It appeared to be the consensus of both the CDC and WHO that whenever a gay network (which, in the 1980s were both illegal and very secretive) was uncovered, Gatan Dugas was always somewhere near the center of it. The CDC and WHO did not name Dugas "Patient Zero" because they believed he was the first person in the western hemisphere to contract AIDS, but because he appeared to be more actively infecting others with the virus than any other homosexual they were tracking.

From Jan., 1976 to July, 1981 the CDC estimated that 94% of all cases of AIDS came exclusively from male homosexual misconduct. Only one female case of AIDS was reported by the CDC during that 5 year period. The CDC classified AIDS as a disease spread entirely by homosexual activity (which is why heterosexual taxpayers were reluctant to allow politicians to spend their tax dollars searching for a cure which many believed did not exist because they were wrongly convinced God created AIDS as a punishment for those who engaged in same-sex misconduct).

AIDS, an unclearly-defined retrovirus in the early 1970s, came under the scrutiny of the Centers for Disease Control in January,1976 due largely to the research of Dr. Jeanne Kassler who authored an extremely controversial book, Gay Men's Health: A Guide to the AID Syndrome and Other Sexually-Transmitted Diseases, which described a new virus which appeared to only affect homosexual men.

Since the first cases of AIDS were catalogued by the National Institute of Health in 1981, AIDS has caused an unbelievable death toll on homosexual and bisexual men in the United States. In 1981 the NIH reported 159 new cases of AIDS in the United States with no fatalities that year. In 1982, 771 new cases were reported with 618 deaths. Ten years later, in 1992 the NIH reported 254,147 new cases of HIV with 194,476 AIDS deaths. In 2002 the NIH reported 886,143 new cases diagnosed with 501,689 victims succumbing to the virus.

In 1996 scientists from the NIH announced they had found what appeared to be a cure for AIDS, called HAART, an acronym for Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy--a customized cocktail of different classes of medications prescribed based on the patient's viral load (CD4+ cell count). A vaccine, given at birth or in adolescence, to people exposed to that environment, offered a shield which appeared to prevent the development of AIDS in likely susceptible victims, or prolonged the survival rate of people infected with HIV, changing—the CDC believed—what was once a fatal diagnosis into a chronic but manageable one.

In 2004, in the United States, there were some 940,000 new onset cases of AIDS, with 529,113 current AIDS fatalities. AIDS was still spiraling upward, out-of-control and, while the NIH continued to publish the numbers of newly infected HIV victims, it stopped publicly releasing the number of infected people dying from what was now generally referred to Hep-C (HIV-AIDS) each year. Now, the number of infected people was being reduced to statistical guesstimates that likely greatly understated.both the newly-infected and newly-deceased.

The most dangerous thing about HAART wasn't the cure. Because, to put it quite bluntly, there is none. HEP-C is one of a growing number of retroviruses which attach themselves to host cells in the victim and perpetually mutate. HAART simply slows the infection down to a infinitesimal crawl, preventing or delaying the onset of the disease—or the progression of its symptoms. HAART must be taken everyday for the rest of the infected person's life. But, it's just as contagious as it ever was. Perhaps moreso, given that it's receives help—from itself.

What makes it worse is that leftwing advocates of abhorrent lifestyles have redefined Hep-C as a new class of semi-deadly sex sins (i.e., "social diseases")—more serious than gonorrhea and syphilis but now, theoretically, condom-safe and no longer a death sentence. That's what happens when politicians and not epidemiologists diagnose pandemic diseases. Although HAART has dramatically increased the life of Hep-C victims, not only is there is no end in sight for HIV, it's morphing into new and similarly deadly adjunct diseases thanks to a 20th century household appliance which has allowed a deadly blood-transmitted virus to evolve into a water-transmitted virus. What is that modern household appliance? The flush toilet.

On May 9, 2016 I wrote an article under Jon Christian Ryter's 2˘ Worth where I noted that Hepatitis-C, a blood-transmitted virus, has now morphed into an equally deadly water-transmitted virus. Now, before we leap-frog to a conclusion, we need to first phrase a question and then answer it. Can you get Hep-C from human feces or urine? The answer is a resounding NO because Hep-C .is exclusively transmitted by blood and never by waste water and human byproducts.

However, although we very easily and truthfully answered the question as stated, it's nevertheless more complicated that a simple "yes" or "no." A trained hematologist should be answering that question because it appears that, in water, a deadly blood-transmitted strain of Hepatitis-C has evolved into a non-lethal form of hepatitis.

That's the reason why, when you visit a new medical specialist for the first time, that doctor, when he orders blood work, will usually include at least one panel on Hep-C or perhaps on Hep-A, -b, -C, -E, -G, -GB, GBV-C or HP-gV (with the last four, like Hep-C, as part of the flaviviridae family of viruses phylogenetically bonded to Hepatitis-C. The doctor, or rather the CDC, is building a database on heterosexual flaviviridae infections. Shockingly, Hep-GBV-C is a fourth genus in the flaviviridae family. Water-transmitted GBV-C affects humans precisely in the same way as Hep-C. It kills. More slowly, perhaps, but when you have contracted a lethal disease that works more slowly, in the end, you still die and so do those you infect.

For years, when Hepatitis C, or HCV, or AIDS, or HIV-1, or HIV-AIDS was on every American's lips, or at least, in everyone's mind, we all knew that unprotected sex could lead to AIDS. It never crossed our minds that a cold glass of water from our own kitchen sink or refrigerator water dispenser might someday lead to the same deadly consequence. But, there it is.

Because among the various hepatitis retroviruses is Hepatitis-G, identified in 1995 (and now designated as Hepatitis-GB or HP-gV. When hematologists realized that HP-gV was a non-A or non-B form of hepatitis (as noted above) they named it for its first known victim, Dr. G. Baker. What hematologists thought was one virus turned out not only to be two new viruses but two new viruses phylogenetically linked to Hep-C (HIV-AIDS). But the shocking reality of HP-gV, now labeled as Hep-GBV-C, was its hidden identity. Hep-CandHep-GBV-CIt's the fourth genus in the flaviviridae family. Water-borne GBV-C affects humans just like Hep-C. It's almost as deadly as its cousin, Hep-C. What makes it weaker is that it morphed from a less deadly strain of hepatitis. But, it's still strong enough to kill. Hep-C finally found the bridge it never had which kept it contained within the host that carried its deadly secret until the virus, contained within the bodily fluids of the host, made contact with the bodily fluids of its chosen (or accidental) victim. Few Americans today think about AIDS because political correctness removed the acronym from polite speech, reverting back to the first stage medical term, Hepatitis C, or Hep-C, a virus people can get without having a hepatitis-C immune deficiency virus (HIV).

The federal government's smoke screen distinctive definitions of HIV-AIDS and non-AIDS Hepatitis-C are about as clear as a black hole at the far end of the universe. The Veterans' Administration defined the differences between HIV and Hep-C like this:

• Hepatitis C • is spread mainly by the blood and sometimes by sex. If you have sex, the best thing to do to prevent both infections is to practice safer sex all the time. To do so, always use a condom, dental dam, or other latex barrier and avoid 'rough sex' or other activities that might cause bleeding. • HIV • is spread by infected blood, semen, and vaginal fluids. There are a number of ways of keeping sex partners from getting HIV—these include taking HIV medications to keep your HIV viral load suppressed, and using condoms for sex.

We are told that we can become infected with Hepatitis C without having, or getting, HIV-AIDS. And, that's true. But if you get HIV-AIDS you will also have Hep-C, which I guess, is enough of a smoke screen to mascarade one as not being the other. It was the development of HAART in 1995 that allowed homosexual men, leftwing politicians and AIDS advocacy groups to breathe easier when Big Pharma announced a cure for AIDS (which, of course, it wasn't and still isn't.) The treatment must be taken every day for the rest of the HIV-AIDS infected person's life. (People infected only with Hep-C [liver disorders like cryoglobulinemia or glomerulonephritis] which are not associated with sexually-transmitted diseases like HIV-AIDS can be cured of Hepatitis-C. That's the distinction.) Which is what caused HIV-AIDS to fade from the limelight. For the moment forgotten, particularly with those using new broad spectrum anti-retroviral medications. AIDS was no longer viewed as the death sentence.it was when the epidemic began. Only, it still was—and still is.

When Barack Obama assumed the White House in 2009, the homosexual community became a favored subculture, and the AIDS label was verbotim. When the retroviruses used to treat AIDS entered the political mainstream, and when the socialist left captured both Houses of Congress in 2007, how fast AIDS ceased to be a pandemic menace. Same sex marriage replaced AIDS as the symbol of perversity in Christian America, and HIV-AIDS was no longer on anyone's radar screen—not even those most at risk.

Today, the AIDS epidemic is no where in sight. With AIDS victims living much longer, and having the appearance of being more healthy, the telltale signs that say," AIDS " speak in a much less audible voice. Although HAART has extended the lives of an increasingly greater number of victims, drugs under Obamacare suddenly became much, much more costly and treatment regimes harder to maintain, leading to irregular medication use that led to HAART drug-resistant strains of HIV-AIDS and a resurgence of active AIDS in the United States.

And, in the meantime, life in America returned to its fairy-tale state of ignoring things which are distasteful or politically repugnant. Public health statistics over the past few years suggest an upward trend of increased sexual risk-taking between HAART users and unaffected same sex partners are receiving the most attention in those studies. Another emerging favor deals with what is called "AIDS message burnout." Message burnout comes from years of being bombarded with safe sex messages in metropolitan areas containing large homosexual at risk populations.

In 2012 and 2013 JMIR, a multidisciplinary Public Heath journal, conducted a two year study on the uptick of new diagnoses of HIV-AIDS throughout the United States, reporting their findings on May 17, 2015. The object of the study was to synthesize recently calculated estimates of the current US HIV-AIDS population through publicly available HIV surveillance data from the Centers of Disease Control, to better estimate the prevalence of newly diagnosed cases of HIV-AIDS at national, state, and county levels. In other words, how fast was the rate of newly infected HIV persons growing. JMIR wanted to find out if we were winning, or losing, the war against AIDS. We appear, once again, to be losing the war. In one study, 37% the surveyed homosexual respondants (15,000) admitted they engaged in unprotected anal sex with partners whose HIV status was unknown. Three years later the same group was surveyed again. This time, 46% admitted knowing that their anal sex partners were HIV-uninfected at the time of their encounter. (Keep in mind, too, that many of these first time encounterers were usually heterosexual, not homosexual. Which means, many of them had wives or girl friends who become at risk of contracting the deadliest STD on Earth.

Public health officials, in an attempt to reverse the re-emerging resurgence of a pandemic problem, investigated factors which contributed to the uptick. Among them were demographic factors (which were paramount), but also situational factors that seemed to accompany increased sexual risk-taking, One of those is speculated to be pharmaceutical advertising in magazines and on TV that minimizes the risk by suggesting HIV-positive people can lead a normal life as a HIV-seropositive person; or that there are now post-exposure therapies that will kill any viral-semen from any sexual encounter.

The problem for the Public Health Service [PHS] is that the HIV-AIDS database the PHS possesses largely dealt with homosexuals and intravenous drug users. In the 1980s and 90s almost all of the data the PHS possessed on heterosexual HIV-AIDS infections accumulated from hospital patients receiving blood transfusions with contaminated blood.

Today there is a new problem to consider because its virtually an invisible problem. More and more America's working class is moving out of the increasingly unsustainable metro areas where the cost of living is too high, taxes are too steep, and the crime rates are abysmal. While the commutes are longer, thousands of Americans every year are opting to buy small pieces of heaven which are converted tracts of farmland that are now gated communities between cow pastures and the metropolitan center where the homeowners work.

Most of these village-sized residential complexes are governed not by town councils but homeowner associations [HOAs]. Generally these homeowners do not have access to city water and city sewage. They are generally building on lots where a well-driller digs a well to supply the homeowner with running water; and a septic system with an adequate drainfield to carry off dissolved sewage into the leachfield where the liquidized waste is absorbed into the ground water. That's where the health problems—and contaminated drinking water problems manifest themselves.

If so, its not only likely but probable those rural homeowners may well ultimately face the same problems with contaminated drinking water faced daily by millions of indigent people in the third world.

Not only are they possibly drinking their own family's urine waste, but if they having neighbors sharing the same water table that feeds your home, you may also be drinking their's—and, by extension, your neighbors might be drinking yours. Anything which gets into the ground water that feeds your well which you access through the water pump which carries that water into your kitchen sink or water purification system, ends up in the glass of water you drink or the water that boils your potatoes or cooks the pasta for your spaghetti dinner.

Keep in mind that water filtration systems designed to remove organic nonoparticles of chemical waste and organic material from the tap water you drink, use for cooking or to bathe in, will likely remove all of the visible debris in the water table which supplies your home—and many of the nanoparticles of ground minerals in that subterranean water table,but without repetitive redistillation and the repetitive repurification of that water to kill all of the pathogens in the ground water, most filtration systems will only remove septic tank effluent from the ground water and organic chemicals like, but not limited to, limestone, calcium and sulphur.

To rid well water of pathogens from urine-expelled diseases or chemical drugs which are excreted from the body through urine—or from a hasty retreat to the bathroom toilet with a bag of cocaine or heroin in hand as you hear a loud thump on the door and a shout: "Police!"—requires more than the one time distillation of ground water, polluted or not, with a common, vitamin store variety plastic distiller which changes the bond angle of water from 104° to 101° (the bond angle of distilled water) instead of from 104° to 114° or more. It is only by redistilling and repurifying water through a continuous process that does not allow the distilled water to cool, does the bond angle of the water permanently change from 104° to 114° allowing the redistillation and repurification process to kill the pathogens in the water.

Remember once again that Hep-A and Hep-E are solely water-transmitted contagions that are transported by contaminated water, like the GBV-C virus which can enter the bloodstream of humans the same way bacteria enters the bloodstream, gaining access to the rest of the host's body in a process known as "Viremia." (Viremia comes from the word "virus" and the Greek word for blood, "haima" meaning "blood virus.")

Because the politically-correct socialist establishment pundits in charge of "word use" in the United States decided that the word AIDS is no longer politically correct because it imbues negative emotions about the homosexual origin of the autoimmune disease that sparked the acronym where Hep-C does not since you have have Hepatitis-C and not have AIDS which initially infected only the homosexual community and Hep-C affects a more universal population.

And, because AIDS is no longer on everyone's lips and in their minds, a majority of people worldwide are somewhat convinced that the disease—HIV-AIDS—has been defeated, or at least stalemated, as it silently continues to ravage a global population which believes Hep-C is the only killer and know little or nothing about water-borne blood carriers Hep-GBV-C and HP-gV-C. Today, it seems, the population at large knows little or nothing about the deadly nature of four strains of water borne HIV-carrier strains of hepatitis: G, GB, GBV-C and HP-gV.

Do you get your drinking water from a well? I remember, years ago, watching a Korean war comedy movie called "Don't Go Near the Water" in the late 50s or early 60s. It had nothing to do with drinking contaminated water. I seem to recall it was a post-wartime flick. If you drink well water, that DvD should probably be in your DvD libraryjust to remind you that whenever you're thirsty for a fresh microrganism-free glass of water, you can read this book and find the healthiest patented deuterium-depleted repurifying redistilled water in the worldthe Electron 5 or 6. You'll live a whole lot longer...and you'll be glad you did. Don't believe me? Just test the water. Your body will feel the difference.
