AIDS and / or HIV denialaists continuously spew out the same re-iteretd nonsense time and time again, even when presented with strong evidence to the contrary. Some examples:
Retroviruses do not kill the cells they infect.
Answwer: a+Agreed, many retroviruses do not kill the cells they infect but some do, including HIV as well as FIV.
Here are just two of myriads of scientific studies showing that HIV killd T-lymphocytes:
Laurent-Crawford AG, Krust B, Muller S, Rivière Y, Rey-Cuillé MA, Béchet JM, Montagnier L, Hovanessian AG.
Virology. 1991 Dec;185(The cytopathic effect of HIV is associated with apoptosis.2):829-39.
Apoptosis as a mechanism of cell death in cultured T lymphoblasts acutely infected with HIV-1.
Terai C, Kornbluth RS, Pauza CD, Richman DD, Carson DA.
J Clin Invest. 1991 May;87(5):1710-5.
Histol Histopathol. 1986 Jan;1(1):43-7.
Denilaist often claim there are no Electron Micrographs of HIV. Again, nonsense.
Morphologic and immunoelectronmicroscopic identification of human T-cell lymphotropic virus type III (HTLV-III).

Their other arguments are just as spurious.
