Does anyone know of a reference that supports this statement?
Is this statement true because by definition, a "long-term
survivor" is a person who HAS taken the establishment's therapy,
while a "long-term non-progressor" is a person who has avoided
this therapy?

I think it would be interesting to look at ALL people who have
been HIV+ for say, 10 years or more, and ask them what drug
treatments they have used.  My personal experience tells me
that most of these people would claim that they NEVER took
the drugs, often resisting strong coercion from doctors.  This
would obviously contradict the often repeated claim that these
drugs prolong lives, so perhaps why this is why I can't find
such a study?
