Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Thursday, 8 August 2019 is Duesberg hypothesis.
The Duesberg hypothesis is the claim, associated with University of California, Berkeley professor Peter Duesberg, that various noninfectious factors such as but not limited to, recreational and pharmaceutical drug use are the cause of AIDS, and that HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is merely a harmless passenger virus. The scientific consensus is that the Duesberg hypothesis is incorrect and that HIV is the cause of AIDS. The most prominent supporters of this hypothesis are Duesberg himself, biochemist vitamin proponent David Rasnick, and journalist Celia Farber. The scientific community contends that Duesberg's arguments are the result of cherry-picking predominantly outdated scientific data and selectively ignoring evidence in favor of HIV's role in AIDS.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:07 UTC on Thursday, 8 August 2019.
For the full current version of the article, see Duesberg hypothesis on Wikipedia.
