The Conspiracy of AIDS

Every minute five people die worldwide from AIDS. Eighty-eight percent of these people are living in third world countries. AIDS (short for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is a disease characterized by the progressive destruction of the body's immune system. HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is believed by scientists and medical researchers to lead to AIDS. HIV infects T-cells or white blood cells, which help the immune system by fighting off diseases. The theory that was first introduced to the people of the world was that AIDS was contracted by a monkey bite; we now know this is not possible. Still nothing has been proven to be correct, but there has been many theories purposed and substantial evidence to support one of these theories. AIDS is a sexually transmitted disease, killing millions yearly, but reliable evidence suggests that the United States government and World Health Organization did little or nothing to stop the disease from spreading and possibly developed AIDS as an implement to control population in third world countries.

There are many AIDS conspiracy theories that have sparked the imaginations of intellectuals, though nothing has been completely proven.
