WHY IS MAGIC JOHNSON SO HEALTHY ?…AND SO MANY OF OUR FRIENDS ARE GONE

You’ve all heard about those Minneapolis talk show hosts who were chastised for joking about Magic Johnson “faking” AIDS. We’re not sure that it’s a subject to joke about, but to be honest, we’ve always wondered how Magic could possibly have had AIDS. He declared himself HIV Positive in 1991. Yet it never seemed to affect his health or behavior in any way. He continued to live well, play basketball, and – let’s face it- chase women. It doesn’t add up. Our friends who got sick back then became very ill and most of them died. The life sustaining medication we have now was not available. And even WITH medication there are side effects, changes in appearance, and symptoms. So how could this guy never show any trace of the disease? Just asking.

    Well being in the position that he’s in he has a better opportunity for the drugs that most can’t afford it’s not fair but that’s how the world works one day we hope for a cure and for all to have access to the medicines that are out their.. And no Kittee the color of skin has nothing to with what a silly comment.

    Ok, so I’m a medical student, and I’m going to try to explain this to you. So with regards to HIV, it was surely a pretty scary disease back in the late 80s/early 90s; the drug regimens that are available today were not available then. It makes absolute sense to wonder why Magic Johnson was able to contract HIV during that time period, and seem to still stay pretty healthy. There are some groups of HIV+ individuals called “Elite Controllers”, where their body is able to have the virus present, but for some reason it isn’t able to destroy the cells of the immune system the way it would in a person that was not an “elite controller”. There’s more, but that’s just a little food for thought.

    Even medical students are naive. Hiv does not cause aids. Hiv is a harmless retrovirus. They want you to think it kills you, so you will buy the toxic medicine that poisons the body. Magic Johnson is partners with Abbott a drug company. They make lots of $$$. LABCORP who does the tests stocked peaked in 1991, same year johnson announced he had hiv. Research Tommy Morrison, Greg Luganus, Thabo Mbeki and Gallo. See who benefits, research all you can.

    Some people live long with aids and some people don’t have the money or insurance to pay for the medications and have a grand diet and positive ways that keep them from being healthy and people out there are still giving the disease to others and still spreading that stuff around and some people are built to last and others are not.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
