1.0 out of 5 stars A theory, not proven in fact, 6 Nov. 2012
This review is from: The Origins of AIDS (Paperback)
Any one who reads this book has to understand that what is presented here is merely a theory.

A friend once remarked that" ... IF AIDS really did originate in Africa, surely the population of the continent would
have been COMPLETELY DECIMATED by now (given the poor, primitive and pathetic medical facilities generally
available - together with the very promiscuous nature of some of its people)".

This seems like common sense. making it hard to accept the conclusion of this theory (and others) as to the African
origin of the disease.

There are other theories of the origin of the disease that must be explored since the theory of its African origin seems
to me, at any rate, to be merely a convenient 'carpet' to brush things under.

If one accepts your theory, then how do you explain the Ebola Virus and the fact that this has not decimated Africa, despite it being far more infectious than HIV?

I think that the author has presented a very reasonable argument. Whether it is correct or not is always going to be debatable but then anybody who follows medical developments appreciates that much of what we know is still in its infancy.
