The Origin of AIDS & HIV, and the First Cases of AIDS
Over the last few years many have worn the ribbons but few have any idea what is going on in AIDS research, that HIV and AIDS are now seen as two distinct problems or that we now know the disease probably first appeared in the 1930's but science dealt with the symptoms, not the cause.

And it began when people started eating infected monkeys.

I don't know how to break it to those that think pork and shellfish are wrong to eat- I would say judging by the results- eating monkeys is far more dangerous.

Anyway, check out the site as a whole. You'll learn how the AIDS stats are come up with, and facts. Not internet rumor mongering- although to be fair- they do mention some of the more popular whacko theories- like AIDS being man made and such rubbish.

RedNova - Laboratory Mice Produce Human Antibodies: "For a small biopharmaceutical firm that has yet to get a drug on the market, Medarex Inc. has been keeping some impressive company. Top pharmaceutical and biotech firms, from Johnson & Johnson to Amgen Inc., have been signing deals with Medarex to use its genetically engineered mice as they seek to develop new drugs. The doctored mice have the rare ability to produce human antibodies, which can help fight disease just as natural antibodies do."
