Doctors in the US have made medical history by effectively curing a child born with HIV, the first time such a case has been documented.

Since none of the "sophisticated" HIV tests are backed by viral isolation as a gold standard, there is no way of ever knowing if someone is really infected with HIV. And since there has never been true viral isolation of HIV, we can't really be sure what it is. It may in fact be an endogenous retrovirus (meaning it is produced from within the body) that is an artifact of oxidative stress. AIDS is truly an area of science that is given its own rules and bizarre untouchable assumptions.

What "it" is, is just a bunch of cellular debris. proteins broken down after cells die. EVeryone has these proteins, but the ones that have more test "positive" on the anti-body test. It's one of the biggest lies ever..

Why would it

work for just newborns and not everyone who is infected?

It says right in the article

The treatment would not work in older children or adults because the virus will have already infected their CD4 cells.
