Lots of sunshine provided the backdrop for the fourth Annual AIDS Walk St. Petersburg on Saturday. Hundreds gathered in North Shore Park to provide support and participate in the event with the goal of raising funds and awareness for AIDS research and prevention.

The walk was sponsored by AIDS Service Association of Pinellas (ASAP), a division of the Hospice of Florida Suncoast and a nonprofit agency that provides services to people living with or affected by AIDS.

Carlos Milan is the volunteer coordinator for ASAP and the AIDS Walk. He said the monetary goal for the walk was $125,000, but with more than 60 corporate teams, including Macy’s and Walgreens, he expects the walk will raise even more.

Having lived with HIV for the past two decades, Milan said the AIDS Walk serves a dual purpose, raising funds and awareness, which are important in battling the virus. In the 20 years since the disease first appeared, Milan has seen many of his friends die because of the lack of medications that have only become available in the last decade. And while there are many treatments today, there is still room for improvement.

A study released last month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirms that the majority of people newly infected with the HIV virus in the United States are gay and bisexual men, and blacks are most at risk.

While those in attendance at the walk were members of the gay and black community, the diversity of the crowd was a reflection that the AIDS virus infects and affects many other people as well.

Ivan Tucker, a participant in the walk, has lost many relatives and close friends to the disease. He said knowledge of the virus is crucial in preventing “unnecessary” deaths.

Beth Fountain is a member of Vote No On 2, a group protesting Amendment 2 and the Marriage Protection Act that will ban gay marriages. She said that while AIDS is terrible, it should not be used as a political wedge.

With the large turnout, the AIDS Walk appeared to be a success. Yet, to some in attendance the walk is not enough. Estella Sanders is a participant who had a few suggestions on how awareness can be increased significantly. Among these ideas, Sanders said she feels the event needs to be held more than once a year.

Globally there are more than 33 million people living with the AIDS. In the United States, more than 1 million people have HIV or AIDS and at least 40,000 new cases are contracted each year. Sanders said there is a growing need for the dangers of unsafe sex to become part of the curriculum in school.

And with Florida have the third largest reported cases of AIDS among U.S. states, the Aids Walk will continue to be held each year to raise money for research and prevention.

CURE for HIV/AIDS...Ambush

THE CURE for HIV/AIDS.......AMBUSH THE IDEA that AMBUSH cures AIDS is being proven by the more than 400 individuals who have taken a dose of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. The result is that AMBUSH 'KILLS' the virus by causing the protein envelope to rupture and the viral particles are discarded by the white blood cells. AMBUSH is able to 'KILL' the virus that are 'hiding' in the lymph system by its 'natural radioactive' properties. This process allows the body to 'return to normal health' with a corresponding immunity to that or those strains of the virus. What is AMBUSH ? AMBUSH is a radioactive isotope of uranium that is found in the 'palm' plant of which there are more than 3000 species. When ingested, AMBUSH causes the body temperature in the trunk area to rise to about 102 degrees when the individual is sleeping. The preparation takes four hours per batch, which is then given to the individuals for consumption 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. AMBUSH is a herbal preparation in this form but it contains an active ingredient which is a 'NEW' crystalline substance, a drug from the 'palm plant' similarly to ASPIRIN originating from the willow tree bark RESULTS: After 21 days on AMBUSH, ALL the individuals experienced a decrease in viral load to undetectable, an increase in cd4, increase in RBC, an improvement in general health such as more color to the face, decrease in Buffalo hump, an increase in gluteal muscles, a decrease to having no joint pains whereby individuals can bend to touch their toes, and walk up steps are but a few examples. There is also a dramatic increase in their sexual appetite beginning after the first week of therapy DISCUSSION: In any plant concoction such as percolated 'tea', there are 30-40,000 compounds, whi ch would take the scientific community twenty years to isolate one particular ingredient if they knew what they were looking for. The LORD GOD has given me seven steps to isolate the active ingredient, which is soft and metallic in nature and has a carbon- uranium-sulfur-(classified)-phentolamine configuration or structure. This is similar to Federick Kekule and the discovery of the benzene ring where he dreamt the structure. As an antiviral and 'natural radioactivity' producing agent, AMBUSH is also effective against leukemia, lupus and HPV. Here I am saying that I have 'GIVEN' AMBUSH in the same 'strength' and dosage to patients with leukemia, lupus and HPV. A 35 year old male with HIV found it difficult to impossible to urinate was put on 'green tea' and water while the doctors contemplated prostrate surgery. One of the doctors gave him my number , I sent him a supply of AMBUSH an d he has not been given any more ARV's, since taking AMBUSH 18 months ago, is in 'good' health and has expressed a willingness to be examined by HIV investigators like many others who have taken AMBUSH. I have sent this 'IDEA' to most HIV research agencies, scientist of the field, universities, hospitals, clinics, politicians and news agencies to which it is REJECTED because the name of THE LORD GOD is mentioned. He has steered me scientifically through the processes such as which plant and how to produce the active ingredient. What are the odds of a Florida Pharmacist picking a plant would contain the CURE for HIV/AIDS ? I have never charged any of the people for their supply of AMBUSH but a life saving has been spent on the project with NO renumeration from any sources because AMBUSH falls outside the walls of modern medicine and research. PROPOSAL: My proposal is that I PROVE that AMBUSH CURES HIV/AIDS by giving it to a number of END-STAGE or DRUG-RESISTANT people and the scientific community watches their recovery. This proposal addresses the problem in that I have already outlaid the results to be obtained. This IDEA is unconventional in that the scientific community has rejected AMBUSH because I say it is GOD given. Secondly if I wrote it according to certain standards, then it might be peer reviewed. However, THE LORD GOD has also shown me that there are five enzyme systems associated with the virus, reverse transcriptase, protease, fusion and two more of which causes the virus to be AIRBOURNE. This means that without DIVINE intervention mankind and ALL warm- blooded mammals will be extinct in a number of years. The PROOF of what I am saying is found in scientific papers wherein it is found that when the protease cuts the viral strands, it cuts it at DIFFERENT lengths EVERY time, to which it should always be a valine at the end but is a different amino acid every time. This is why it is IMPOSSIBLE to produce a VACCINE. Since this is NOT a hypothesis but there are about 400 individuals who have taken AMBUSH, here lies a vast area in which to check, recheck and confirm that AMBUSH CURES AIDS. Let it be mentioned that during the HIV reproductive cycle, reverse transcriptase converts viral RNA into DNA compatible to human genetic materials. Thus the human DNA has been 'hijacked' and since each person has a DIFFERENT DNA, then the new viral copy is unique to that person which shows that each individual has a DIFFERENT STRAIN of the virus. Consider two HIV positive people swapping viral strains and increasing its complexity with multiple partners. It can also be proposed that they be revisited as proof that the strain or strains that they had were 'killed' at the time of taking AMBUSH considering that a person can catch as many different strains as there are people who are infected by HIV. I am also willing to work with the scientific community in identifying those individuals who took AMBUSH and wish to be identified with this process notwithstanding that some are stigmatized while others are jubilant, Once AMBUSH is verified as being able to accomplish that which is aforementioned then the next stage might be the natural and artificial synthesis of the substance. Finally, if this is accepted or not, believed or not, THE LORD GOD always wins and this is the heavenly truth to which AMBUSH was divinely given to mankind for the CURE of HIV/AIDS and it will be here forever.
