Serious Adverse Events

by Celia Farber
Book Review by Richard Urban

            Serious Adverse Events is a collection of essays written by investigative journalist Celia Farber about the events and pharmaceutical interventions surrounding the disease AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome).  Originally published in 2006, it is now republished in 2023.
            I recommend that everyone read this book.  Here are a few reasons why.
            Did you know that there is no scientific consensus that AIDS is caused by a virus called HIV?  Rather, that notion is a construct of Robert Gallo.  Subsequent to his (questionable) announcement, the National Institutes of Health, then headed by Anthony Fauci, and the entire medical, AIDS activists and Big Pharma conglomerate ran with, and continue to run with that narrative.  This, of course, is self-serving, as all these groups receive hundreds of millions in funding from the unholy alliance of the federal government and Big Pharma.
            The first major AIDS drug treatment, AZT, was approved based on flawed studies.  There was no control group and records were falsified. Later AIDS drugs, like nevirapine were also approved after corrupted studies, or even just one corrupted study, sometimes in a matter of weeks.  One toxic drug was compared to another toxic drug, as seems to have become the standard for the “clinical trials” of drug companies.
            Indigent children in the foster care system were abused as guinea pigs for Big Pharma.  Some were forced to take the drugs by inserting tubes in their stomachs, and when a number of them died, they were disposed of (“buried”) in a mass grave.  This happened in the New York City foster care system.
            PCR tests, made familiar by COVID testing, are also used to test for HIV viral loads.  But if you have to use the most powerful amplification process to supposedly find a disease, does it really exist, especially when many people who supposedly have HIV don’t have any symptoms? The ELISA and Western Blot tests test for HIV antibodies.  Yet about 33 % to 50% of those who test positive don’t have any HIV in their blood.
            One of the most preposterous claims is that the reason that double blind, placebo controlled studies can’t be done is because it would be unethical not to give the “life-saving” drugs to people.  This is exactly the opposite of the truth.  Because the drugs are so toxic and dangerous, if a proper study with a placebo group is done, there is no way the drug will ever be approved.  Or so we thought, until COVID miRNA shots were approved after placebo trials, through data manipulation.  Which brings up another point.  How can Big Pharma companies be in charge of testing their own products?  And how can the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) receive significant funding from Big Pharma and still be non-biased?

            What about AIDS in Africa?  It certainly does not look like AIDS in western countries, where the main cohort of those infected is sexually active homosexual men who sometimes have had as many as 3000 sexual partners.  In fact, most of what is called AIDS in African countries has the same symptoms that are caused by extreme poverty and malnutrition.
            Yet, in Africa and elsewhere, toxic drugs like AZT are recommended to prevent mother to child transmission of AIDS.  This disproportionately affects poor women   However, when treated with vitamin A, pregnant women have similar results in preventing transmission as the supposed effects of giving highly toxic drugs like AZT

            As you can see, this book has taken on new relevance in light of the manipulation of COVID 19 to accomplish a similar unholy alliance between Big Pharma and government, which is continuing to this day. 
            Buy a copy and read it.  Then take action to inform others.
