What do you know about AIDS and Sex? Who is Nancy Padian, and why is her study – the longest and best on HIV transmission – censored from the Wikipedia pages on both HIV and AIDS? Why does Dr. Padian’s own Wikipedia page censor all of her findings?

Dr. Nancy Padian on HIV and sex. As part of her 10-year study on HIV transmission, she enrolled 175 couples, one partner HIV-positive, one HIV-negative. These individuals had sex – vaginal and anal – with and without condoms over the study period. They were continuously tested. Drug abusers were kept out of the study, to emphasize the role of sex in transmission.
The results: At the end of the study, how many people who tested negative became positive, after repeated sexual intercourse with their HIV-positive partners?
Was it 50?
Was it 25?
Was it 20?
The answer is – Zero. Zero people who tested negative became positive. From the study:
“We observed no seroconversions after entry into the study [nobody became HIV positive]…This evidence argues for low infectivity in the absence of either needle sharing and/or other cofactors.”
“I think HIV is more difficult to transmit than other sexually-transmitted – than a lot of, probably most other sexually-transmitted diseases. I mean, I think that’s pretty widely known.“
Is it “pretty widely known,” Doctor Padian?
It is now.
