Acquire Immunodeficiency Syndrome is caused by Human Immunodeficiency Virus "HIV". If one is infected with HIV, the body will produce special antibodies that will try to battle with the infection. HIV is tested by searching for antibodies in the blood or the lining of the mouth. If it tests positive, one is said to be infected but is not the same as having AIDS.
"Conspiracy," is a plan made by two or more people to do something that is illegal or harmful. Most of the existing conspiracies are never solved. There are two plots surrounding the origin of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and how it came to existence. In many people mind the question continues to be raised as to whether the virus is a man-made disease or a natural disease that came to live. Is AIDS truly a man- made disease? Although nobody knows where the virus originated from the scientists, continue to gather the information and support the conspiracy regarding the virus. The theory that is more plausible is that the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome is a man-made disease. . The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 to 1.2 million residents in the United States are living with AIDS. Some of them don't even know if they have it. There are new infections each year and men lead it by 75% while women are 25%. Half of the new infections are blacks though they make up only 12% of the U.S.A population (Elizabeth pg. 451-457).
In History, it states that AIDS stopped to be the headlines in America since in the communal awareness the disease is still believed to be transmitted sexually and mostly it affects the male homosexual, prostitutes, drug addicts since they share needles and immoral individuals. Officially in June 1981," gay disease" changed a significant number of men and this caused the death to most young men. In 2001, The Royal Society of London's Conference which was originated by Bill Hamilton published the initial cause of AIDS and the cause of HIV for the world to be observant, but his participation was stopped by his death in March 2000. The remaining surviving organizers, Simon Wain-Hobson and Robin Weiss made small changes and continued with the conference. The scientists and academicians who were extremely respected debated the possibility that HIV-1, the chimpanzee SIV is the most shared and deadly human disease AIDS virus evolved from a vaccine that was accidentally contaminated and afterwards transmitted to most African villagers. In 2010, it was found that Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV), the predecessors to the (HIV), Human Immunodeficiency Virus has been in monkeys and apes for 32,000 years. Then the theory of Oral Polio Vaccine (OPV) was developed at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia by Hilary Koprowski; he generated the AIDS virus by introducing the SIV.It is now clear that it was the work of the human hands (mainly, those of the scientist and doctor) that started the AIDS pandemic, which now represents the worst outbreak of infectious disease the world has ever seen. It has coursed over Twenty- seven million deaths and sixty-six million individuals infected with the virus since the pandemic began. According to Dr Gerald Myers; the Chief DNA analyst at the Los Alamos Laboratory in New Mexico and his colleague, they reported that "the HIV could not have begun with cut hunters." (This is the theory that says, human, apparently African native, received a bloody wound while preparing a chimpanzee carrying a similar virus) (Steven 466).
Although the evidence supporting the man-made theory has never been mentioned in the United States media, it continues to be laughable. For example, in the book of San Francisco Chronicle, ("Quest for the Origin of AIDS", January 14, 2001), William Carlsen states that in the primary years the AIDS virus, theories trying to explain the cause of the disease ranged from the amusing to bizarre. Also according to the video AIDS did not come from outer space or the hand of God. However, there is plenty evidence that makes the hand of man be suspected in the AIDS outbreak that began in the late 1970s in New York City when after the vaccination for hepatitis B the volunteers started showing the symptoms of Aids (William 322).
On the other hand, as the HIV was spreading vigorously into the gay community, it kept it from getting the attention that it should have because it was created to target gay men for the Eugenics experiment. It made some of them to think it was a punishment from God to do away with the gay community but they were wrong. HIV is a natural disease. It spreads faster through the gay community than the general population (Judith pg. 365).
HIV is an ordinary disease, not a punishment or a weapon. It has been with humanity for decades, and it is spread in various ways. For the man-made way disease, it is seen that it comes from apes and even cats sine we have direct contact with them and when they infect us with their syndrome to humans it becomes the HIV and later the AIDS virus. Thus, after the research, it is clearly seen that AIDS is a man-made disease that affects anyone who is/has been in contact with the apes and cats too. Since it took a longer time to get noticed it spreads faster especially in the gay community.
