Storyline

From the hyphotesis of British journalist Edward Hoope, the film reopens the explosively controversial subject of the origins of AIDS, zeroing in specifically on his fiercely contested proposition that the HIV virus was first transmitted to children in the Belgian Congo via contaminated polio vaccine.

World AIDS Day
1 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a small recognition of World AIDS Day, I spent some time watching this outstanding documentary about the origin of the disease.

There is no debate as to where and when HIV-1 originated, but there has been some discussion as to exactly how.

Was it naturally occurring, or did we somehow do it ourselves? This film answers that question and leaves little doubt as to the origin of these terrible disease.

The answer will certainly surprise you and cause you to wonder about the way we are all treated as guinea pigs in the name of science and profits.
