Re: "Getting Tested" article,
I must admit...I have never read an article (Sept. 17) with soooooo much misinformation about the Smooth Jazz format. You must have imported this article from the Bay Area...who is Charles Levin???
The big question is how come you guys did not check the radio station in your own backyard who's seen this format evolve over a nine-year period? I could not find any local angle to this story.
We were responsible for putting this format on in August of 1990.

Don't Dismiss Us
Thanks to Coast Weekly for bravely interviewing HEAL (Sept. 17). We are a little surprised that our contact numbers [348-HEAL] were not included seeing that we hold a public forum each month. We do this because we are concerned that many facts about AIDS and HIV do not make it into mainstream media. We are not understood by those who our information threatens. Those who debate us in your article choose to dismiss us, rather than become informed. They are engaged in thought-control and policy-making that creates a completely dysfunctional system for discovery of a real cause and treatment for immune suppression of all kinds.
What HEAL is saying simply results in there being no single bug causing AIDS and no single pill to cure it. New AIDS medicines are available again and highly overrated as usual. This pattern of hope raising and drug marketing has been closely watched by our group. We are not convinced that chemotherapy-like drugs should be forced on people for a lifetime, when these drugs are already showing increased side effects and so-called resistance to HIV. The "ludicrous statement" that our beliefs can be compared to "saying the Holocaust never existed" made by Dr. Allen Radner from (NIDO) is just the kind of misinformation about our group intended to censor the very so-called "insane" practice of telling people the truth about AIDS treatments.
I will go as far as to say that AZT is a cancer-causing poison and those who dish it out are the irresponsible ones. Today people thought to have HIV antibodies are immediately placed on barely tested treatments and all kinds of other drugs to counter side effects. Worst of all, pregnant African women are now being given AZT is vast numbers. I have no problem believing in genocide when I see it before my very eyes in AIDS medicines and AIDS policies. People still think we are talking about drugs that work to cure AIDS. People are being used as guinea pigs here and they are dying.
To get the record straight, we can't and don't make anyone stop taking these drug treatments that want to take them. If a person changes their mind based on our information, that would be free will and educated choice, something that we feel is HIV-positive people still have a right too. Just like the few who learned and warned their family and friends not to board the death trains in Nazi Germany. HEAL is a tiny voice that has brought stern warning and common sense regarding the WAR against AIDS. We can't help those who won't listen.
Go ahead, get another HIV test, it is your life, but not for long if you test positive. Be informed before you jump on the fast track, FDA-pill-for-everything death march.
For those people who do not support free thought on AIDS issues, only time will continue to tell what damage that does. Many more lives will be lost and destroyed before these errors in AIDS policies come to light. Scientists can't cure retroviruses and AIDS does not have a single retroviral cause. AIDS has failed to produce an epidemic (sorry if that disappoints your readers). HEAL literature and several AIDS authors have painstakingly laid out the evidence for these claims with hard facts. Those who pooh-pooh us so quickly have neglected to read a book on the subject or bothered to attend one of our meetings.
Until there is hope--Help HEAL.
