Format: Paperback
I was lucky enough to be given this book a couple of years ago. It's not the kind of book that one would generally read through for entertainment, as it's solidly packed with detailed explanations of complex and interacting biological mechanisms that explain various phenomena. However, if you're wanting to understand not just how AIDS science has taken a seriously wrong turn but also want robust answers to the question, "If it's not HIV, then what causes AIDS?", this book goes into considerable and fascinating detail.

You'll tend to find things that things you'd wondered about or didn't have a satisfactory answer for before suddenly become a lot clearer. If you want to ask, "Yes, but before AZT came out, what was REALLY killing gay men? - and don't just say 'recreational drugs' ", here you'll find the answer, and the implications are quite shocking. He also goes into detail about what AIDS doctors should really be looking for but aren't as well as including recommendations for things you can do yourself.

Because of the inevitable level of detail, if you are totally unfamiliar with some biology of the body it will slow you down a little, but not that much. It is certainly readable for someone like myself as someone who abandoned biology at school as soon as possible. Being a novice at human biology should really not put you off, it is soooo worth reading. It's a book you will return to and dip into.

From reading this book, if you've been hexed with a diagnosis of a deadly virus and your prime interest is understanding more about the underlying biological mechanisms of AIDS, critical factors that influence the processes, and understanding what AIDS drugs actually do to the body, and what to do instead, this book really will leave you feeling considerably enlightened, relieved, and in much greater control of your destiny.

I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested on AIDS and Cancer.

Dr. Kremer just wrote the most accurate analysis that I've ever read on HIV test and HIV therapy, reaching ,with a rigorous scientific method and documenting with plenty of references, the unavoidable conclusion that both of them are a FAILURE! The test is a failure because it is inaccurate and unspecific. The therapy is a failure because, not only is not effective in curing AIDS, but it's also higly toxic, as Andrew Herxeimer (Emeritus Professor of Pharmacology at the Cochrane Centre, Oxford, and founder of the International Society for Drug Bullettins) pointed out: "I think zidovudine [AZT] was never really evaluated properly and that its efficacy has never been proved, but it's toxicity certainly is important. And I think it has killed a lot of people. Especially at the high doses. I personally think it not worth using alone or in combination at all." Kremer also investigates the toxicity of other drugs used for AIDS profilaxis, as cotrimoxazol, that is for sure less publicly debated than AZT, but not at all "side effects-free". Amazing is also the excursus about the importance of the balance between TH1 and TH2 lymphocites and how this correlates with the grade of "stress" of the immune system.

I also like the chapter on cancer, although I'm not sharing with Kremer the idea that the main cause of cancer should be researched in the mytochondria, but in the aneuploidy (chromosome imbalance) present in all the cancer cells (that is actually my field of research). Time will tell who is right.

Format: Paperback
_The Silent Revolution in Cancer and AIDS Medicine_is a long book, well over 600 pages, and parts of it will be challenging to the general reader. Dr. Kremer thoroughly goes into the latest research on the human immune system, and especially the role played by nitric oxide (NO). He begins with a history of the abuse of nitric gases (the volatile nitrites or "poppers") for sexual enhancement. All of the early diagnoses -- first of "GRID" (Gay-Related Immune Deficiency) and then of "AIDS" (Acquired Immuno-Deficiency Syndrome) -- were given to gay men who heavily used poppers, as well as other "recreational" drugs. The nitrite inhalants cause a great excess of NO in the body, together with a depletion of essential thiol/glutathione, leading to the cachexia or wasting syndrome, which Kremer considers the core phenomenon of "AIDS". And not only did poppers cause a thiol deficiency. Kremer writes:

"It can be assumed that the first homosexual AIDS patients had a considerable thiol pool deficit a long time before their manifest AIDS illnesses. The preceding nitrosative and oxidative stress loads of this group of patients are well known: Prolonged nitrite inhalation, uncontrolled consumption of antibiotics, chemotherapeutics, analgesics and `recreational drugs', chronic antigen stress through multi-infectiousness, alloantigen stress through resorption of foreign proteins...."

Kremer demonstrates that the drugs used to treat patients with "AIDS" diagnoses -- from the early drugs, Bactrim and Septra, through the premier AIDS drug AZT, up to the latest protease inhibitors -- all are highly toxic and deplete thiol.
