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.

HIV origin proven,100%.
7 August 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The polio vaccine in 1957 Congo ,did start the HIV epidemic..This is proved in the epic novel..(The River by Edward Hooper) It is a fine piece of work and 1000 pages long..I defy anyone to read this book and not be 100% sure..You will get plenty of dis- information on this subject and it will be junk science, gibberish..This is because an experimental vaccine was used on Africans who didn't even suffer from polio..The "bleach' virus was a western problem...Which brings us to the reality ,and why this is covered up in the west..For a village in the Congo to get an outbreak of polio.,a well job was undertaken..That this was population control is certain as many,many elites want de-population in a way I cant describe here.... A group of elites met in Holland 1954 ,the bandenberg group,3 years later comes HIV....In 1978,21 years later a hep B vaccine in new york started the American contagion,also pop control against gays ans drug addict..Now order that book online as it is hidden from the general public and see for yourself .
