Scientist Admits To Faking HIV Cure To Score Millions In Grant Funds

$19 million down the drain? 

The New York Post reports:

An Iowa State University professor resigned after admitting he falsely claimed rabbit blood could be turned into a vaccine for the AIDS virus.

Dr. Dong-Pyou Han spiked a clinical test sample with healthy human blood to make it appear that the rabbit serum produced disease-fighting antibodies, officials said.

The bogus findings helped Han’s team obtain $19 million in research grants from the National Institutes of Health, said James Bradac, who oversees the institutes’ AIDS research.

Suspicions were apparently raised when other researchers couldn't duplicate Han's results and investigation led to the discovery of human antibodies in Han's rabbit serum. 

Han has agreed not to seek government contracts for the next three years, but after making this kind of move--wouldn't any future research or discoveries by him be suspect? 

Let's just hope some benefit can be found from the research and funds that he used so that it's not a complete waste. We also hope his recklessness doesn't deter future funding from HIV researchers that are working with integrity to find a cure.

Pseudo-Science is the Bigger Threat.

No surprise here. One day intelligent people everywhere will soon begin to realize that the whole incredibly flawed 'HIV=AIDS' Theory is the Biggest Scientific Sham of All.

“I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.”
― Leo Tolstoy

“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”
― Adolf Hitler

“No matter how big the lie; repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as the truth.”
― John F. Kennedy

“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self sustained.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

Apparently Patrick has so-called 'HIV' Theory all figured out, too bad modern science doesn't, and they never will. Now if Patrick could only form more words and sentences other than "Be quiet" and "blithering idiot" maybe he could enlighten the rest of of humanity.

Nice collection of quotes. It does nothing to support your ridiculous proposition, but you get an A+ for being able to quote people and type their quotes up all nice and pretty.

@PG - Educating yourself is your job not mine. The scientific method requires dissension of current theories, otherwise you're just another perpetuator of orthodox myths. ...and yes, I did receive an A+ in Biology as well as Virology, and your rather arrogant and condescending comment likewise does nothing to support so-called 'HIV' Theory; but then again, I suppose to you the Earth is still flat and the Sun revolves around it, because everyone has told you so.

@TheTruthAboutHIVAIDS - you call me "condescending" and then you accuse me of being a flat-Earther? You really have no argument to make, do you? You do deserve an A+ in name-calling and misdirection. Don't distract people from being responsible in taking care of their health with proven science and medicine with your non-arguments.

He should be out of the field; his university should be denied any government grants for ANY topic or department for two decades.

You are absolutely right, J, and so goes the nature of the beast. If this wasn't 'HIV' research, he'd be charged with scientific misconduct as well as fraud.

Ya know... if all he is getting is slap on the wrist... I wouldn't be surprised if he did find the cure and then was forced to not share it to make more millions on...I dunno insurance companies that pay for the medication and treatments... ::Shrug::

Wait, he can't file for contracts for 3 years? That's it? That's barely a slap on the wrist. How is he not facing legal action for fraud? $19 million has got to qualify for some kind of theft.

This infuriates me! I am disgusted! There are millions of suffering people, who need help and trust researchers are working hard for them to find a cure. Not just with HIV either-- there are millions of people with illnesses like ME/CFS (ie Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) or fibromyalgia, who are housebound and suffering in silence because funding for research always passes them by. Imagine how much good 19 million would have done for people like that. ...What a disgusting waste!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As the Buddhists believe, greed is an evil. This was an evil act of greed.
