Following up on the Valentine’s and VD post, https://letters2jamison.com/2019/02/13/valentines-vd-a-gift-that-keeps-on-giving/ someone posited the question: Was I just lucky or was there something about my lifestyle that kept me from contracting diseases I probably should have gotten?
Promiscuity, in the 80s during the find patient zero aspect of the AIDS epidemic, was defined as 11 partners in one year. Statistically speaking, I’m guessing 8 dates a week in college pretty much defies logic when it comes to how I came through that time period relatively unscathed.
There are a lot of current (2019) commercials targeting LGBTQ about getting on a daily multiple prescription drug regimen to keep from getting HIV. Reading the possible side effects in the fine print, I’m sure you noticed the big section on kidney failure. One other interesting factoid about the regimen…part of it is also a treatment for hepatitis B.
Adding to my list of possible reasons why having unprotected sex with HIV/AIDS infected people did not result in my receipt of the disease, I would hope if individuals of high risk entertain risky behavior they add what they can from these practices to their protectionism mechanisms.
• I did not allow male semen inside me. The flagella (sperm) naturally chew holes in cell walls in order to fertilize an egg.
• I didn’t kiss or swap spit with people I was not in a monogamous relationship with.
• I bathed immediately after sex.
• I had an internal vaginal flushing mechanism called a female orgasm. (The fluid of which is usually around a 7.3 pH or higher. Same pH strip that they use to check whether or not a pregnant woman’s water broke.)
• I drank oxygenated water with a pH of 7.0 or greater.
• I ate non-GMO food.
• I regularly went skydiving and received a higher quantity of protons than the earthbound electron imbuing cell phone wearing group.
I was skydiving before proton therapy became a staple cancer treatment but after Louise L Hay taught me positive attitude and holistic medicine existed long before modern medicine.

Has anyone else gotten a curiosity bug when looking at the history of HIV and AIDS versus the current epidemic? In the 80s, the powers publicly announced the decade would not end without cure availability. What happened?
Looking for correlating answers to the posted question above, the deeper I searched, the less sense the purported 80s story line made.
A thorough read of today’s internet material says the disease was present in monkeys in 1920s Africa and transferred to humans via bush meat. Recent research states these monkeys have been living with SIV for upwards of 32,000 years. All well and good but how did they survive the flash frozen younger dryas event that thawed out only about 12,000 years ago? Not related to sex and sex solutions, I guess that is a question for another post.
Agreed, HIV is a mutated virus with ape origins. Even though the proposed number of worldwide infections prior to 1980 was estimated at 300,000 with a rapid rate of spread capability, one might think wealthy American sport hunters or travelers having some “fun on holiday” might have been the first to bring HIV from Africa to America.
However, there is no documentation of such a logical occurrence.
A Haitian man who presumably worked the Congo bush then moved to New York ultimately becoming an intravenous heroine addict claims that prize.
Serum tested post mortem from New York’s Haitian man initiated “junkie pneumonia” victims had some staggering rates.
1975 below 20%
1978 1 in 11
1979 29% of 40 samples
1980 44% of samples
1982 52% of samples
Check the first “4H” box for 1970s New York needle sharing junkies, users numbered in the tens of thousands, which does not explain the California gay sex angle.
Odd spread statistics
Is it possible to believe that a lower percentage of people had sex between 1920 and 1980 thus accounting for the slow to non-existent mutation of HIV-1 and HIV-2 coupled with stable distribution capability at roughly (300,000 individuals/60 years = 5,000 individuals) on an annual basis?
While it supposedly raged in Africa and came to Haiti through employment, then into the world of shared needles, during the free love sixties and sexual revolution seventies, HIV found no traction as a sexual issue in America? Other than one molested, embarrassed and victimized, 16 year old boy in St. Louis, no American hippie culture type contracted the disease?
I would argue people were more promiscuous then with a lot less condom use than now, because sexually transmitted diseases were not lethal.
Follow that logic for a minute.
Between 1981 and 1984 in America, 1 case became 249 and then close to 3000 cases with a roughly 50% mortality rate ballooned into around 250,000 cases with a dismal life expectancy.
By January 1986 the AIDS epidemic had infected over 1 million Americans.
Go backwards and none of this 1920-1980 math adds up when it is correlated to human sexual behavior.
If it only took less than 5 years to have 1 million infections, how could it take 60 prior years to have less than 300,000 cases?
Yet, today, the wildfire-like disease spreads at a rate of 5,000 new cases per day?
If we account for the rate of population change between 1980 and 2018, again, the math does not add up.
While the global population only doubled, the rate of HIV infection increased by a factor of 10.
Did the sexual habits of humans drastically change in 1980? Sure, we flew a lot more in the 80s than in the 20s but when Patient [letter] O from the airlines was crossed off the list after infecting only 40 people, there were a lot more questions than answers.
How AIDS went from nothing to worry about to pink buttons proudly worn in bars almost overnight lacked compassion and logical sense. At the time, most believed the prevailing attitude, still held from Hitler’s ethnic cleansing less than 40 years earlier, that someone had found a cure for gays and drug addicts. (That was the scary part of “not my problem” 80s greed culture.)
The official narrative is unique. In 1977 a female prostitute in San Francisco delivers a baby that later dies. The woman dies in 1987. Post mortem discovery was conducted in both cases to determine HIV strain presence. Nobody knows this when the evening news runs stories saying gay men are dying.
When the general population did hear about this new deadly sexual disease, not unlike the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, only “4H”, a specific targeted community, had an outbreak for this one specific variant of the HIV series. In 1981, the CDC credits Ken Horne as the actual patient zero. Clusters in the gay community of San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York almost simultaneously got the disease.
And suspiciously, no happy heartlanders contracted this rare disease where it was first reported. Nor were there reports in Miami, Hotlanta, Dallas or Chicago sites, only gay men in three cities on the east and west coast.
In 1983 the CDC already had a smoking gun. Which is great detective work. The CDC claimed there was no conspiracy. The dying men said there was.
If a person didn’t think the disease was going to personally threaten them, then any narrative was acceptable. On the other hand, if this could directly affect the one in the mirror, finding out everything one could was extremely important.
Normally when researching the history of the AIDS narrative, one wouldn’t go looking for benignly related vaccine studies, unless one actually believed being both the maker of the bullets and Band-Aids provides a perpetual income stream. In America, if you want to find out what really happened, follow the money.
In 1973 a study was conducted in Uganda for children with Burkitt’s lymphoma. Wikipedia states, in 1985 retroactive testing showed 50/75 children had a disease closely related to HIV. Women were also dying of a close cousin of HIV, but not the one that bombed the American gay men’s scene.
Scientific consensus rules out any sort of stereotypical hate behavior in favor of genetic mutation. A mutation they still cannot explain in any peer review paper I read. If there is a scientific consensus, there is a paper. No consensus, no publish. In the publish or perish world, everybody wants to be first to publish!
In the paper by V. Harinda, HIV: Past, present and future (Indian J Sex Transmission 2008; Vol.29, No.1), No test has been able to conclusively prove how the virus mutated from SIV into a human HIV disease naturally. However, under the heading of conspiracy theory, “Some people believe that the virus was spread… to gay men through hepatitis b vaccine trials.”
According to Colin W. Shepard et al. in Hepatitis B Virus Infection: Epidemiology and Vaccination (Epidemiological Reviews, Volume 28, Issue 1, August 2006), “First licensed in the United States in 1981, hepatitis B vaccine is now one of the most widely used vaccines in the world…” Additionally, “…the world’s first cancer prevention vaccine and the first vaccine to prevent a sexually transmitted disease.”
Humans are the only known natural HBV host. Scientists have a complete DNA understanding of the virus. I won’t bore you with the jargon however, It is scary how unrelated scientific papers describe HIV and HBV transmission almost like identical twins.
Based on the demographic of the majority of the initial recipients of HIV/AIDS, it is completely understandable how this was viewed as a targeted eugenics project by everyone looking at these statistics. An HBV trial was administered to the subset populations in the three locations where GRID first bloomed.
It doesn’t actually matter who or what started it. What matters is stopping it because what is touted to stop the speed of new daily infections is not stopping the spread of the disease!
Lots of people wanted to get tested. The big problem was that nobody would administer the test until the 6 month incubation period after sex had expired. This created MAYHEM! Many people, like myself, adopted a program of keeping a list of partners and getting tested every six months.
Between 1984 and 1987, research funding was made available because women, children and movie stars could get AIDS.
To squelch heterosexual public fear, an available cure was expected within two years. Those of us who knew a cure would never come, took it upon ourselves to find out how to protect ourselves while continuing to live the scene.
They say cases of rare pneumonia and cancer triggered the detection of HIV.
Knowing cancer and pneumonia are both diseases that are triggered by low body pH and science has repeatedly proven neither disease can survive in a pH environment above 7.0, I decided to do a little 1980s peer review research journal crawl.
Many researchers looked at the correlation between pH and HIV transmission.
I stumbled across the most interesting paper attempting to prove that pH is not a factor in HIV. To an untrained individual, this might pass muster. To everyone else who passed 8th grade biology or chemistry, pH regulates chemical availability and thus cellular function.
When growing plants we know that soil pH must be correct for nutrient uptake in order to flower or grow food. Human bodies are designed to operate optimally with a pH around 7.0.
Blood has a pH ranging from 7.6 to 7.2 whether a vein or artery (Bohr effect). The higher range reflects more oxygen thus allowing for the body to process sugars and create healthy cells.
Here is the quick, short summary of the published research from the 1980s papers I examined.
At a pH of 5.0 nothing HIV related replicates. Ta-daaa! Cure.
However, cancer and pneumonia go Gang Busters in the pH 5.5-6.6 categories. Not a cure.
At a pH of 7.6, the upper limit of what any paper disclosed, there was still viable mutation. How much? Who knows?
Of interesting note, if a weak solution of NH4CL was introduced within the first 18 hours, a 95% rate of unsuccessful cultivation occurred.
That translates to a Potential 95% reduction in getting HIV if applied within 18 hours of sex.
Ammonium chloride can be found in cough medicine, fireworks, food additives, shampoo, cleaning products and textile printing. In a not too stunning surprise, this method of reducing the likelihood of spreading the HIV infection never made it to market.
The first protease inhibitor to successfully delay disease progression in AIDS patients changed pH levels. Protease inhibitors are employed to “affect physiological processes.” Mice studied were cited to have a pH increase to 8.5.
Another useful factoid of merit is circumcised males are less likely (65%) to contract HIV through heterosexual sex than their foreskin retaining counterparts.
Microbicides dropped pH levels and failed to achieve the anticipated results.
But no cure was ever published. Not even for those that could afford it.
And now a possible solution to the dilemma.
Based on my lifestyle choices, adding oxygenated water might be a huge part of the solution. Why? Because the human body is roughly 68% water, a bag of mush and electrical impulses. Water is the filter. The pH and oxygen content of your filter controls everything including the oxygenation of your blood cells and ability to fight disease.
A pH of 8.0 is not dangerous to the human body as there are oxygen water products that are sold with this pH at health food stores. Water at a pH of 8.0 is extremely healthy. So are oxygen bars also called oxygen cafes where one can breathe pure O2. The Las Vegas airport has an O2 bar. Some portable O2 units normally used by elderly patients provide a decent option for non-exploding oxygen tanks. The King of Pop slept in an O2 chamber. Oxygen kills anaerobic organisms. It turns facultative anaerobes into aerobes. It binds heavy metals. Oxygen can do amazing positives.
I would ask that if dollars are being spent on education to deter the disease, spend a couple thousand on a triple replicated study. Needed tools will include: a high school biology lab containing microscopes, camera attachments to snap photos of the slides, slides, cover slips, Petrie dishes, pH strips, auger, safety gear, HIV cells from a willing person able to donate a few drops of infected blood, and probably some willing Biology club scientists-in-training interested to perform this triple replicated study designed for peer review and publication.
Culture the HIV cells in the substrate. According to research papers, this occurs within one hour. Increase the pH in increments from 7.4 to 8.6 to see when the disease fails to spread.
I’d make a Vegas betting line at 7.8 pH.
If my theory that HIV does not transmit at a pH above 7.6 and replicated scientific proof can substantiate the anecdotal explanation for my lifestyle, then a small lifestyle change to emulate the protective measures I employ including douching the orifice immediately after intercourse with oxygenated water and drinking oxygenated water might be all that’s needed to eliminate the spread of the disease.
If that doesn’t work, science has known since the mid 80s a weak solution of NH4CL immediately after intercourse will reduce the risk of infection by 95%.
After replicating the proof three times, spend the rest of your budget getting the good word out!
The slave mentality
I know board members of pharmaceutical companies. They don’t bring new drugs on the market unless those drugs are profitable. Now that an estimated 70 million people and counting have contracted HIV with about 36 million still alive, a couple million people taking a daily regimen of pharmaceuticals is profitable.
Much like cancer, as long as we never cure the disease while gaining a new influx of contaminated individuals on a daily basis, the mutating HIV virus strains will always need new development profit centered drugs.
If high school kids, those most endangered by the disease, would accept responsibility to find possible cures or at least attempt the science experiments to see what levels of O2 implementation could work, then they might be afforded a simple luxury: what it’s like to have sex without wondering if it might kill them.
Our slave-owning, freedom-wanting founding fathers said it best, “Those who do not fight for freedom do not deserve it.”
Bottom line. If you want a cure, you need to find it. There is too much profit in not stopping this infection.
