French Virologist Luc Montagnier is credited with having co-discovered the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and was co-recepient of the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 2008.
In an uncut interview for the documentary House of Numbers, Dr. Montagnier shares some insights that may surprise those with common knowledge of HIV and AIDS.
My main takeaways from Montagnier’s interview is how global awareness and solutions are influenced by profitability rather than human welfare. Too much funding is devoted towards vaccines and treatment of diseases but not enough on basic nutrition, education, and healthcare.
Like the Global Warming debate that doesn’t seem to die, the AIDS debate is an interesting deja vu with new (or old) twists finally seeing public scrutiny.
