Written in the late 1980s, this book was one of the first to seriously question the popular “scientific” mythology of the origin of AIDS. According to Los Angeles physician Cantwell (and a number of others since), the newly discovered AIDS virus–if there even is such a thing, for some have come forward questioning whether it really is a virus that causes the symptoms of AIDS–was created in a laboratory and then injected into metropolitan homosexual men in the U.S. in the late 1970s; the homosexual men were told they were taking part in an experimental hepatitis-B vaccine program. Cantwell shows that the outbreak of the AIDS epidemic closely corresponded to where and when these “hepatitis-B vaccine programs” were occurring. Cantwell also provides evidence that Africans and Haitians may have been injected with the AIDS virus as part of separate “vaccine programs.”

      This will shock the average reader but Cantwell anticipated that, and thus provides much documentation to show that the U.S. government and medical authorities have used American citizens as unwitting guinea pigs for MANY experiments all throughout the twentieth century.

      Some of the material in this book is a bit dated; most of it still is very relevant. The author has an amateurish writing habit of using multitudes of capital letters whenever he thinks some particular sentence or entire paragraph is worth emphasizing. That’s about the only real criticism to be found here. This is still a fairly recommendable book.
