Fact that HIV causes AIDS. We live in the year 2013, not 1996.

Duesberg and the others raised legitimate concerns regarding HIV in the late 1980's and 1990's. They have since been debunked.

Cherry picking outdated science is a favorite tactic for contrarians and conspiracy theorists.

Also, Dueberg hypothesis about recreational drug use and homosexuality is only outdone in ridiculous implausibility by the Perth Group, a group of antiscientists so wacky that they even embarrass Duesberg.

Another favorite tactic for antiscience conspiracy theorists is to use scientific terms in incorrect ways in an attempt to sound legimate. The Perth Group does this with "oxidative damage." Epigenetics is another misused concept.
