Conspiracy of AIDS

Thousands of conspiracy theories are tossed about everyday making outrageous claims about something not fully understood by the theories creators. On subject in particular that has been the subject to many of these often ridiculous accusations are ones about AIDS. Today, most people believe that HIV and AIDS originated in Africa. However, the reality is that no one really knows where the AIDS virus originated. Due to numerous counts of cases and other important factors of AIDS, there are many different possibilities that have been proposed regarding the derivation of the disease. For instance, the conspiracy theory that was first introduced to the people of the world was that AIDS was contracted by a monkey bite. But now we know it is impossible. Some people say that it wasn’t nature that created AIDS: it was the U.S Government. According to this conspiracy theory, the U.S Government made AIDS in effort to rule out homosexuals and black people because these two minority groups are two of the most disliked minority groups in America. Though the conspiracy theory, known as the AIDS/bio warfare theory, proposes some suspicious and persuasive arguments, there is no possible way that the U.S Government created HIV.
First of all, it is important to know what HIV and AIDS are. The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) causes acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) HIV is a virus that attacks the immune system. It is a Lentivirus, which means “slow virus” because it takes an extensive period of time before the side effects of a lentivirus are noticeable. Lentiviruses are a relatively common type of disease and can be found in several animals such as horses, cat, sheep and cattle. Some people believe that HIV originated from a primate lentivirus known as Simian Immunodeficiency Virus, or SIV. Due to the fact that certain variations of SIV are almost…...

On this date one of America's greatest tragedies occurred. In this tragedy, around three thousand people were killed, with a total of six thousand injured. On this day four planes were hijacked; two of them hit the Twin towers in New York city, one hit the Pentagon in Arlington Virginia just outside Washington D.C., and a fourth one crashed in Pennsylvania, the intended destination of that plane is unknown. What happened on this day completely changed the world forever.( people who have been said to be responsible was a terrorist group called Al-Qaeda. The United States citizens have been told to believe that there were 19 hijackers from Al-Qaeda who hijacked four United States commercial jets, and purposefully crashed them into The Twin Towers, and The Pentagon. After the attack happened, the United States responded with launching “The War on Terror” and invaded Afghanistan to eliminate the Al-Qaeda. The leader in charge of the attack was Osama Bin Ladin. This war is still going on to this day, and we still have not found Osama Bin Ladin.

Conspiracy Theories

...The basis of conspiracy theories shows trends of repetition throughout history that implement fear into everyday life. True or untrue, conspiracies are still followed, almost religiously, by many people. Theories that are wrong are still being pursued by people, and the choices they make based on those theories influence how they live their life. Conspiracies start from a source that is displeased by a particular group or activity. The source of the conspiracies usually makes them to slander the group that they are displeased with. The global catastrophe, which was known as the end of the world, compelled fear into the minds of people everywhere. For decades, 2012 was prophesized as being the end. The Mayans had carved a calendar that mysteriously stopped on December 21, 2012. Because the Mayans were such a highly respected and omniscient civilization, people instantly believed that the world would end based on their predictions from thousands of years ago. “The Maya invented an accurate calendar almost 2,000 years ago which measured time in 394-year periods known as baktuns and some anthropologists believe the 13th baktun ends on December 21. While some experts say the calendar never actually predicted an apocalypse, it has been interpreted that way by doom mongers all over the world.”(“End” N.A.). Others believed that a massive planet, four times the size of Jupiter, called Nibiru would collide with the earth or come close enough to shift the world’s polar axis and cause......

9/11 Conspiracy Theories

...9/11 Conspiracy Theories Hannah N. Powell Floyd Central High School 9/11 Conspiracy Theories On the morning of September 11, 2001, the terrorist attack in New York caused a shock to a vast majority of the United States. We have all seen the terrible footage of the twin towers collapsing and the crash of the plane at the Pentagon and in the field in Pennsylvania. It seems almost unthinkable for our own government to potentially control the awful events of 9/11. Around 8:00 am on September 11, 2001, Flight 175 from United Airlines departed Boston carrying two pilots, seven flight attendants, and eighty-one passengers. Within five minutes, the plane’s identification transponder was shut off; it was hijacked and turned for New York (McConnachie, p.396). Also, at around 8:00am, American Airlines Flight 11 left for Los Angeles. A few minutes after the plane departed, it was hijacked and directed towards New York. Around 8:05 am, Flights 93 and 77 from American Airlines changed its course and headed toward New York. At 8:46am Flight 11 slams into the North Tower at the World Trade Center striking the north side, only fourteen stories from the top. 9:03am South Tower at the World Trade Center was plunged by Flight 175. 9:45am Flight 77 collides into the Pentagon. Flight 93 crashed in a field after passengers rush the hijackers. Around 10:10am the Pentagon, the North, and South towers collapsed (McConnachie, p.396). Evacuations had already begun in the South Tower when the...

Presidential Conspiracy

...Kennedy, one of which killed the president. A fourth shot was fired from the grassy knoll, which was contradictory to the statement printed by the Warren Commission 16 years earlier. They concluded that John Kennedy was assassinated as the result of a conspiracy. The investigation was ordered directly after the assassinations of two other major political figures; the civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King and the President’s brother Robert Kennedy, in 1968. Naturally these incidents aroused immense suspicion and the American public started questioning why so many key US figures had been assassinated in the space of just four years, when previously this type of incident had been rare. The HCSA was interested in looking into the possibility that the assassinations were related. At the time there was also an increasing awareness of corruption and scandal within the government. The Watergate Scandal in 1974 involving President Nixon had clearly shown that American government was not entirely free of foul play. As a result of this, people started questioning the behavior of the government, and how much it was holding back from its people. This is most likely why Americans became more receptive and attracted to the idea of a conspiracy behind Kennedy's death. The questions that were asked by the officers proved to be worthless and what little records were kept are said to be inadequate. Also more seriously, the Dallas police were wildly believed to be at fault for......

Since the eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds, the United States has battled many pandemics and outbreaks of various diseases that have had devastating effects on the public health during the periods they existed by causing thousands of deaths.

...Hall HIV AIDS in Southeastern U.S United States Statistics show that the AIDS epidemic began in 1981. Since then 1.7 million Americans have been infected with HIV. A number of 583,298 U.S. citizens have died due to AIDS-related causes. 1.1 million Americans are living with HIV and don’t even know it. An estimated 21% of people living with HIV are undiagnosed. AIDS spread so fast that every 9.5 minutes; someone in the U.S. is infected with HIV. The leading cause of the spreading disease is said to be gay and bisexual men. Gay and bisexual men continue to spread the HIV infection. They are accounted for an estimated 53% of new HIV infections. Also, African-Americans and Latinos are affected by HIV and AIDS as well.

Latinos account for 17% of new infections. They comprise 15% of the U.S. population. Whites represent 35% of new infections and account for 66% of the total population (HIV/AIDS Facts). The AIDS case rate for African Americans is more than 9 times that of whites. Also the HIV rate is 7 times greater among blacks than whites. Survival after an AIDS diagnosis is lower for blacks than any other racial/ethnic group.

... AIDS Trends AIDS is a disease that society has been concerned for almost two decades. Several institutions have tried to do the research to find the way to heal this disease. In addition, They are doing the experiment in the laboratory, also, the research to find some medicine for preventing and healing AIDS. The sources of concern are that demographic trends in AIDS cases are disturbing, and efforts must be made to prevent the disease from spreading in specific communities. The State Officials reporters of Durham addressed that AIDS is now the state’s number one killer African American males between the ages of 15 and 14 and the number two killer for African American females of the same age group. The most troubling aspects about the current trend is that females are being particularly hard hit. From many female AIDS cases, they have risen steadily since the late ‘80s, rising from representing 11 percent of all AIDS cases in 1987 to more than 19 percent in 1994. Now, African American women comprise more than 80 percent of the cumulative AIDS cases diagnosed for females. According to the deaths report during 1994 to the North Carolina Division of Vital Statistics for 15-44 year-olds, AIDS was the leading cause of death in 15-44 year-old in Buncombe, Durham, Mecklenburg, New Hanover, and Wilson counties. For 15-44 year-old males, AIDS was the second leading cause of death(626 of 3,943 deaths) for the state. For 15-44 year-old women, AIDS was the fifth leading cause......

Cancer Conspiracy

...Charmaine Threat GS1140 10/11/2014 To understand the cancer conspiracy one most first understand cancer and what causes it and the business be hide it. Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. If the spread is not controlled, it can result in death. . Cancer is caused by both external factors (tobacco, infectious organisms, chemicals, and radiation) and internal factors (inherited mutations, hormones, immune conditions, and mutations that occur from metabolism). What is important to understand is with the great balancing act that our body performs, because of our poor life styles, we wind up gradually storing large growing amount of waste products (acidic properties or toxins) throughout our body, slowly causing acidification and problems. Another important thing to understand is that acid coagulates blood, thus causing poor blood circulation around the places where acids are accumulated. This in turn causes the conditions of extra cellular fluids, especially the blood, becomes acidic, our physical condition will first manifest tiredness, proneness to catching colds, etc. When these fluids become more acidic, our condition then manifests pains and suffering such as headaches, chest pains, stomach aches, etc. The organs to act sluggish and we start to see the symptomatic signs of aging and disease. The cancer epidemic has many causative components; virtually all of them either actively promoted by or ignored...

Jfk Conspiracy Theory

...the creation of many conspiracy theories regarding the death of president JFK. The conspiracy theory regarding president JFK’s assassination is widely believed due to the propagation by mass media. Conspiracy theories have been propagated all around the world through the use of many different means. Nowadays, people spread large amounts of information, facts and rumors using social media. Social media makes it extremely easy for people to be aware of the many things occurring all over the world. Yet, there were also many other important mediums that were used to propagate the conspiracy theories about Kennedy’s assassination. Just like the conspiracy theories regarding the murder of Princess Diana, the death of JFK was largely spread by mass media with the use of television, radio, speeches and books, as well as many other methods of communication. Mass media continuously focuses on rumors for these are more interesting to people than the real facts. Furthermore, mass media turns several rumors into facts when propagating a conspiracy theory with the use of repetition. When people start hearing the same thing over and over again, some start believing that what is being told is true. These new facts then reveal new conclusions about the conspiracy theory, putting the last conclusion into doubt. This creates a vicious circle where it becomes extremely difficult to know what actually happened. For example, take the “magic bullet” from the conspiracy theory concerning......

Surrogacy: a Chance to Life or a Conspiracy

...genetically unrelated to the intended parent(s) and genetically unrelated to the surrogate. Traditional surrogacy (TS) This involves naturally or artificially inseminating a surrogate with intended father's sperm via IUI, IVF or home insemination. With this method, the resulting child is genetically related to intended father and genetically related to the surrogate. Traditional surrogacy and donor sperm (TS/DS) A surrogate is artificially inseminated with donor sperm via IUI, IVF or home insemination. The resulting child is genetically unrelated to the intended parent(s) and genetically related to the surrogate. Ethical and Legal Issues Among the many applications of the new reproductive technologies (including artificial insemination by donor—AID, in vitro fertilization—IVF, embryo transfer, and embryo freezing) surrogate motherhood has such far-reaching consequences that it raises a multitude of ethical and legal questions. It has been hotly debated in courts and legislatures. What distinguishes surrogacy from other reproductive technologies is not the technology itself but the circumstances of its application—an arrangement whereby one woman bears a child for another, with the intent of relinquishing the infant at birth. The surrogate arrangement is most often made between a couple (where the wife is infertile) and a “surrogate”; in the contract signed by both parties, the surrogate agrees to be artificially inseminated with the husband’s sperm, to bear a child, and......

...HIV/AIDS HIV/AIDS (Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) is a particular virus that can only infect humans. HIV weakens your immune system by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection. A deficient immune system does not have the ability to protect you without medication. The virus can only reproduce itself by taking over a cell in the body of its host. HIV is similar to other virus like the common cold or the flu; the big difference is that your body cannot rid the HIV virus like the flu. Once you have HIV, you have it for life. The virus invades yours cells, replicates itself and destroys the cell. Once you cells are destroyed it longer has the ability to defend itself. AIDS is the syndrome after you immune system has become deficient or basically stopped working. AIDS is a collection of symptoms and signs, rather than a single disease, because it is a complex illness with a wide range of complications and symptoms. Before addressing the virus, AIDS it is important to understand that HIV is the first stage of the disease and then as the disease becomes worse, it progresses into AIDS. HIV is not an airborne virus or a bacteria that can be transmitted in the water instead it is passed from person to person through bodily fluids. These bodily fluids can be anything from blood to vaginal secretions and there is currently not a vaccine to protect the public so being informed is key to protecting oneself from the virus. The most......

Slave Power Conspiracy

...“The Slave Power Conspiracy and Latin America” Throughout the course of America’s history there have been events that are so unbelievable and lack sufficient evidence to back them up, thus they become known as conspiracies. One of these conspiracies is the idea of Slave Power. The Slave Power Conspiracy, to most American’s this conspiracy is probably unknown, but it relates to an idea which is a topic of debate among scholars and historians. The Slave Power Conspiracy is an idea that came to be in the 1840’s and lasted till the end of the Civil War. As was stated this idea is a conspiracy as there is no direct evidence to give it a strong foundation or validity in our time. The term “Slave Power” coined in 1864 in a book written by John Smith Dye entitled “History Of The Plots And Crimes Of The Great Conspiracy To Overthrow Liberty In America.” The term started off simply as the Slave Power (conspiracy was added in the modern era). In the book Dye alleges that since the time of Independence, the aristocrats of the South and politicians from the South have had an agenda to extend slavery to the Western United States and Latin America and thus increase their power, wealth, and influence in the United States.[1] There are certain events that happened in Dye’s time that can show this idea was real. They can also prove the legitimate and real threat Slave Power posed, to Latin America. By examining all......

...AIDS Introduction AIDS is growing by leaps and bounds in the United States. Millions of Americans have been affected by the virus from the ages of 25 and 45. AIDS is the fifth leading cause of death among persons between ages 25 and 44 in the United States, down from number one in 1995. To some people, AIDS is just another epidemic like the common cold and it will go away in time. The AIDS epidemic doesn’t affect everyone in society the same. AIDS is a global epidemic and has threatened the human health and development for many years. There are many ways to prevent the spread of AIDS such as abstinence, educating our youths and adults on AIDS prevention, and political support to find a cure. There are different views on the AIDS problem. One view is the Politicians who believe that people are responsible for their own sexuality; therefore, it’s their responsibility to educate themselves. Second are Christians who believe that religion acts as a deterrent to sexual activity which decreased pre-marital sex. Third are the group of Planned Parenthood and safe sex which believes that if they educate people on the use of contraceptives, it will help diminish pregnancy and the spread of AIDS. HIV and Aids in the United States by age and gender More than half a million people diagnosed with AIDS have died in the USA. Around two-thirds of these people did not live to the age of 45. In 2007, the age group 30-49 years accounted for an estimated 54% of HIV diagnoses, 63% of......

Conspiracy Theory

...Conspiracy theory Protective sense of human-beings naturally help observe others’ action whether it is hostile or not. A person, who is suspicious of persecutory actions from others around him for some or no reason due to excessive protective sense, is said to be jealous. When this sense goes even further, it becomes a disease. In medicine, it’s called paranoia. This is one type of schizophrenia. Paranoia leads one to reach quick conclusion about why a bad thing has happened to him, accuse the suspect easily and overlook one’s easy conclusion. This disease is common in any society. Personal analysis is much better and healthier and therefore less prone to this disease while paranoia at the level of society is more common as it is more prone. Psychologists say that this has to do with the fact that individuals are directly responsible for consequences of his action while no one is held responsible for actions of society as a whole. Society is much more susceptible to paranoia and is easy to escalate it once infected. In other words, society holds much stronger conviction in order to find the person guilty of causing bad things got them. It’s very common for social paranoia to be directed towards people with different nationality, religion and beliefs, and different social strata. Its symptoms manifest in accusation and suspicion. Victims of social paranoia tend to be accused of having supernatural power and association with witches, and of plotting evil conspiracy. This......
