Truth Seeker provides a fine example here at the end of this rant about the perceived evils of AZT.
AZT is a probably the most toxic drug in the world and highly carcinagenic you can read all about here and its horrific history and how its based on very bad corporate science. A poison is a poison and a toxin is a toxin, changing whats its given for does not change this fact,only the the dosage or administration methods change, so it may be a slower poison than when given for chemo.
I would not touch this drug with a bargepole myself and would tell anyone who has been diagnosed HIV positive to educate themselves about AZT before taking it so they can make informed choices.
Hmm. IQ lower than hat size? Check. As a bonus, not only did he skip all his science lessons at school, he appears to have slept through most of his English lessons too.
