Maria Papagiannidou died last Sunday. Another very public and active denialist has kicked the bucket; sad but predictable. Her face and “story” is all over the internet.
She appeared on TV espousing the lie of living a “healthy” life with HIV/AIDS, while her immune system CD4 cells were being invaded and killed off.
She wrote a book, “Goodbye AIDS! Did it ever exist?”. (Yes it does, and it killed you.)
I know she contacted some people I know about starting HAART but she left it a bit late. She and her husband did everything within their considerable powers to rubbish HIV science, question the medicine and scare people away from treatment: for that she’s now paid the ultimate price.
I hope that people who read this will draw one lesson: AIDS DENIAL KILLS.
Don’t be taken in by the smiling faces and sob stories of people who claim to live a perfectly healthy life free of (HIV) drugs: if you are HIV positive you can’t and will die.
Rethinking AIDS will have to do yet another edit to remove this deceased rethinker: she thought her last thought on Sunday. So farewell Maria. Peace be with you.

UPDATE(2) – This is her denialist website. I guess its needs updating to reflect the the fact she’s gone to a better place.
