Update: Rico Enjoys First Drug Free Days Of His Life: Laughs

Rico and Lindsey

I spoke with Cheryl Nagel this evening and she updated me on the situation with her grandson Rico, and said I could share it.
Rico was seen by several different doctors today. They are anxious to get him back on ARVs but not before he is tested by a dermatologist on Thursday, to see if his skin condition suggests he is “allergic” to any of the drugs. If they say no, then Rico has to go back on a 3 drug ARV cocktail–same as before. If he is (please God) allergic then he can’t go back on the drugs. As many of you know, Rico almost died one week ago after suffering an extreme bright red rash that was very painful when touched, and with ARVs this can mean catastrophe in the form of comprehensive skin loss, (Steven Johnson’s Syndrome) and/or renal failure.
Rico’s aunt Pam told me the rash was bright red, “like he was wearing a little red suit.” This earned Rico five days off all meds, and in those five days, I got to see him, and everybody said his color was totally different, pinkish, and that he had developed an appetite and also cried a little. (He never cried while on the drugs.) So now he gets two more days drug free. His hemoglobin level is “really good” Cheryl said. The medical staff apparently asked Lindsey: “So when you are going to start on the meds?” And Lindsey said she has never taken them and feels fine and has no plans to take them now or in the future.

But it was something Cheryl said just before we hung up that really haunted me. She told me Steve was playing with Rico this evening and suddenly, for the first time in his life, he laughed. Cheryl thought: “Is he laughing?”

She said that as Steve was playing with him, Rico laughed and laughed.

This is so crushing.

Rico does not “have HIV.” He was born healthy.  Despite the inventor of PCR, Kary Mullis, stating openly that PCR’s role in HIV diagnostics is miscast and distorted, PCR became the holy grail of HIV “detection”–including for newborn infants still carrying their mother’s antibody shadows. And it was PCR that doomed Rico to this chemical prison. Everybody who is complicit in this Holocaust, media especially, go to hell and stay there. The story of scientific dissent was always right there, a phone call away, but you all refused to even talk to them. Refused to debate. Refused to read. Reconsider. Even the inventor of PCR (Mullis) and the discoverer of onco-genes (Duesberg) not good enough for you. Nor Serge Lang. Nor Harry Rubin. Nor Lynn Margulis. Nor Harvey Bialy. Perth Group. Nor ANY of the close to 3,000 scientific/academic signatories who have been decrying this scientifically bankrupt theory since 1987, calling it madness, calling it wrong, calling it murder. All this suffering because it was THAT important that Larry Kramer/ACT Up screaming brats got their way and buried the true history of late 70s bathhouse culture and the obvious consequences to a human immune system. No, it had to be a “virus.” From Africa no less. Now look where we are. Psychotic medicine. A baby snatched from his mother’s arms and kidnapped, placed on toxic drugs in a tube through his stomach. Why? Because they have to prove Duesberg wrong. That is ALL they care about. A $350 billion industry that by every measure is criminal. And the foremost scientists in the field could not stop it, or even slow it down. And the press rolled over. WHEN WILL IT END?

Rico’s tiny body is the battlefield for a $350 billion scientifically bankrupt theory. And he laughed tonight for the first time. His family given 48 more hours to enjoy the sight of him not poisoned. They’re getting a glimpse of what he would be like if he could be allowed to just be, just live. “The transformation was immediate,” Steve Nagel told me. “It was the same with Lindsey. Overnight.” *

[*Lindsey Nagel was taken off AZT as a baby, and immediately stopped showing symptoms of toxicity from the drug, which had been attributed to HIV. She grew up perfectly healthy--the only survivor in the state of Minnesota of pediatric HIV treatment in the early 90s, (AZT) which killed 11 other children who remained on the drug. There were a total of 12 HIV positive children in the state. 11 were kept on AZT and died and one, Lindsey, was taken off, and is alive today, and the mother of her own child, Rico.]

    BE AWARE: THIS FARBER WOMAN IS WIDELY DISCREDITED:

    (from wiki)

    Work on AIDS[edit]

    See also: AIDS denialism
    In 1987 Farber began promoting the AIDS denialist view that HIV does not cause AIDS.[3] She wrote and edited a monthly feature column in Spin magazine entitled “Words From The Front” from 1987 to 1995, which was focused on the denialist agenda. She says that her interest in the field was sparked when, as an intern at Spin, she heard of AL-721, a lipid mixture derived from eggs that was proposed as an anti-HIV drug. She stated, “I was very young, and I believed instantly in the mythological fantasy that there was a quote ‘cure’ for AIDS that was being suppressed by the government and by the pharmaceutical industry.”[4]
    Farber’s work emphasizes the negative role she feels is played by pharmaceutical side effects in the health of many AIDS patients, as well as the claims of Peter Duesberg and others who argue that HIV is harmless. Although Farber is not a scientist, she also describes what she considers to be flaws in the methodology used by some early HIV and AIDS researchers. Her view of the American scientific community and the National Institutes of Health is that they are “totalitarian” structures.[5]
    Her 2006 Harper’s magazine article, Out of Control: AIDS And The Corruption of Medical Science,[6] criticized the ethics and industry of antiretroviral drugs and favorably presented the scientifically discredited claim that HIV does not cause AIDS. In response to Farber’s article, the Treatment Action Campaign, a South African group campaigning for greater access to HIV treatment, posted a 37-page rebuttal written by eight prominent AIDS researchers. The rebuttal described over 50 errors in Farber’s article, ranging from misleading or false statements to implications of sinister motives without evidence.[7][8]
    Farber’s article was widely criticized for its promotion of AIDS denialism.[9] A New York Times op-ed described Farber’s article as promoting “deadly quackery”,[10] while the Columbia Journalism Review wrote: “Next time, Harper’s should be more careful about giving so much legitimacy—15 pages of it—to such an illegitimate and discredited idea.”[11] In response, Farber claimed that she did not endorse the Duesberg hypothesis and that she had approached the story as an objective journalist without a preconceived opinion, stating: “People can’t distinguish, it seems, between describing dissent and being dissent.”[8] Her claim of objectivity was disputed, with critics pointing to Farber’s long history of arguing that HIV does not cause AIDS.[11][12][13][14] Farber also claimed that her article did not unduly disparage antiretroviral medication, writing that “…it does not, for example, say that all AIDS drugs are ghastly, or worthless.” Farber also argued that, “…in each article where I have addressed HAART I have included, clearly, the fact that the regimens have absolutely helped people who are very sick.”[14] Again, her claims were disputed, with critics pointing to a number of prior writings by Farber in which she argues that HIV medications are deadly and ineffective.[14]
    In June 2006, Farber wrote an article in the independent paper Los Angeles City Beat in defense of Christine Maggiore, an HIV-positive AIDS denialist who avoided antiretrovirals during pregnancy and did not have her children tested for HIV.[15] Maggiore’s daughter, Eliza Jane, was found to be HIV-positive only after the three-year-old died of pneumonia as a complication of AIDS.[16][17] Maggiore herself would die in 2008 at the age of 52 of pneumonia possibly related to HIV/AIDS.[18]
    The scientific accuracy and objectivity of Farber’s articles has been widely disputed. Critics point to her favorable presentation of the denialist views of Peter Duesberg.[11] The Duesberg hypothesis, which holds that HIV is a harmless “passenger” virus unrelated to AIDS except by association, has been examined and rejected by the medical and scientific communities.[19]
    A collection of her AIDS writings, Serious Adverse Events: An Uncensored History of AIDS, was published in July 2006. Farber was one of the original signatories to the letter establishing the Group for the Scientific Reappraisal of the HIV-AIDS Hypothesis.[20]

      wow..lots of “we know the mistakes” but dont have time to tell you.
      Sounds like its written by a not too bright big pharma staff member.
      And using the word “denier”.
      Another logical fallacy..
      Try better next time..

      alf, i think you’re trying hard to persuade us not to believe Celia. unfortunately, i also think you might try HARDER the next time.

    • Anonymous says:

      Well all I have to say is keep up the great work Celia Farber!!!!!!

  3. Rosamel says:

    Thank youuuuuu , Celia for your great work of communicating the TRUTH !!!!

    There are many people all over the world that are expecting the day in which THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS GREAT LIE , HIV=AIDS, COMES OUT, AT LAST !!!!! It will be a very GREAT DAY….DAY OF LIBERATION FROM THIS TERRIFIC INHUMAN ACT.

    I trust that Rico is free from the toxic drugs the doctors are giving him …..and what is worse….HE IS BEING OBLIGED TO TAKE THEM !!!! SOONNNNNNNNN, because his life is in risk.

    Rico must be free of this “YES or YES intoxication-poisoning” . This is so UNFARE !!! How can they dare to do this to the world, and in particular to this little baby ???? But you will be judge for crimes against humanity. Be for sure .

    great news!

  5. Greg Baysans says:

    I’m very appreciative of this update and hopeful that Rico will not be put on the poisons that killed many friends and associates and maimed others who still consider them “life-saving” because their doctors tell them so, while taking blood money and building their posh homes and vacation yachts.

    I owe my life to those who have fought this blatant lie and abuse of power — Celia Farber and Kerry Mullis are top-notch authorities.

    The CDC is a factory of propaganda and lies meant to kill, but only after they make money off those they tag as expendable (I’m on their list). “Poz” since 1998, I’m either proof they are wrong or …. well, I am proof they are wrong. HIV tests are useless garbage and should be illegal. Stop the madness.

    Perhaps this may help as well. Zita Lazzarini & Lori Rosales have
    written an insightful, well researched article for the Yale Journal of Law,
    etc.

    Hi Celia,
    Thank you for the coverage as always. The Nagel family is in my thoughts and prayers.
    Love and admiration,

    Excactly! Some cold blooded, money greedy people with no professional integrity but with a disturbed urge to achieve fame and fortune have been able to get away with this and pull innocent babies and their parents and all of Africa down with them over decades—helped by fans mainly among homosexual men, some of whom aren’t men enough to face the consequenses of their own choices and behavior (daily douching, prophylactic use of antibiotics and heavy use of street drugs, multiple STDs and antibiotics again..and again etc.) and therefore cover up personal problems with the idea of being infected with a hypothetical virus that does all the damage. Pathetic! But they get to be part of the group of the most spoiled rotten and immature group of “patients” ever; the people with “HIV”….although this virus might not even exist!

    Celia, Hello. Could You give the coordinates of the Kary Mullis. My son on the results of PCR diagnosis of HIV. I would like to directly from the Creator of this method ask – whether its method of diagnosis of HIV

  11. Mike Williams says:

    Great Post Celia !

    “the only survivor in the state of Minnesota of pediatric HIV treatment in the early 90s”

    Should that read “failed experiment” rather than “treatment”.?
