French virologist Dr Luc Montagnier received the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency (HIV) virus.
Canadian filmmaker Brent Leung interviewed Dr Montagnier for his 2009 documentary ‘House of Numbers: Anatomy of an Epidemic,’ during which the doctor made some startling statements on the role of antioxidants and nutrition in HIV.
See his uncut interview below:
Leung [the film maker]: You talked about oxidative stress earlier. Is treating oxidative stress one of the best ways to deal with the African AIDS epidemic?
Montagnier [the scientist]: I think this is one way to approach, to decrease the rate of transmission, because I believe we can be exposed to HIV many times without bring chronically infected. Our immune system will get rid of the virus within a few weeks, if you have a good immune system.
Oxidative stress spells weak immune system
This is the problem of the African people. Their nutrition is not very equilibrated; they are in oxidative stress – even if they are not infected with HIV. This means their immune systems are already not working well, and prone to allow HIV to get in and persist. There are many ways to reduce transmission just by simple measures of nutrition, giving antioxidants – proper antioxidants – hygiene measures, fighting the other infections. These methods could decrease the epidemic to the level it is in Western countries.
Leung: So if you have a good immune system, then your body can naturally get rid of HIV?
We should push for nutrition and antioxidants
Leung: Oh, interesting. Do you think we should have more of a push for antioxidants, and things of that nature, in Africa than antiretrovirals (AIDS drugs)?
Montagnier: We should push for more, you know, a combination of measures; antioxidants, nutrition advice, nutritions, fighting other infections – malaria, tuberculosis, parasitosis, worms – education of course, genital hygiene for women and men also, very simple measures which [are] not very expensive, but which could do a lot. But you know those kind of measures are not very well funded or not funded at all. Its really the local government’s responsibility to take charge of this, but local governments take advice of the scientific advisors from the intelligent institutions, and they don’t get this kind of advice very often.
Leung: Well there’s no money in nutrition, right? There’s no profit.
Montagnier: There’s no profit, yes.
You can get rid of HIV naturally
Leung: Now one thing you said, you were talking about the fact that if you have a built immune system, it is possible to get rid of HIV naturally. If you take a poor African who’s been infected and you build up their immune system, is it possible for them to also naturally get rid of it?
Montagnier: [Nodding yes] I would think so.
Leung: That’s an important point.
Montagnier: It’s important knowledge, which is completely neglected.
Dr. Montagnier is very clear on the points he’s making:
- You can be exposed to AIDS without getting infected.
- A strong immune system can protect you against AIDS.
- With the help of good nutrition, you can fight off AIDS.
- The importance of AIDS vaccines is exaggerated.
- AIDS can be approached with low-cost, highly-effective alternatives to vaccines.
- What the African people really need is better nutrition to protect themselves from AIDS.
- The facts about nutrition and AIDS are being neglected (by the medical establishment).
At the end of the interview, before the cameras are turned off, Montagnier acknowledges to Leung that what he just said was essentially a “bombshell” of information that stands at odds with conventional AIDS scientists such as Anthony Fauci.
