Myron Cohen led an international team that began the study in two thousand seven. But Dr. Cohen says the work really began twenty years ago: “We had a strong suspicion based on all the biological studies we had done that when we treat people and lower the concentration of HIV in the blood and secretions, we were rendering them less contagious. But we didn’t understand the magnitude of the benefit.”Dr. Cohen heads the Institute for Global Health and Infectious Diseases at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Junk science is used to keep predators on the streets, convict the innocent and injure or kill 2-4 million Americans annually. The actual human and financial losses are incalculable. Although the Justice Department routinely pursues cases like this, the fact that a company like Astra Zeneca can pay a 0 million fine for the illegal marketing of a drug that generates billion a year smacks of arrangements once made between small town mayors, their appointed police chiefs and local madams. Unlike drug kingpins and cartels, US drug companies are typically allowed to raise drug prices, pay fines and avoid jail sentences.
