There's millions of dollars going to AIDS research from some many different directions. From governments, music concerts, individuals, etc.
Just imagine what could possibly happen. If the big pharma solves the problem, there will be no new income. If it is not just AIDS causing the symptoms in Africa, they will never find the solution as long as they restrict their research to Africa. They keep trying to find things that will "cure" the symptoms. The virus seems to still be a mystery from what I read. Hopefully, Miracle-Mineral-Supplement will help in some fashion. If the virus mutates with drugs, it will not do so with Miracle-Mineral-Supplement . The problem might be that it is too aggressive and too fast multiplying for Miracle-Mineral-Supplement .
I think the same thing is true for malaria. How many malaria cases in Africa are really malaria?
I'm don't believe I would trust and large test when it involves Africa.
