As far as the PCR is concerned, I would also suggest that you go to the web
site of the man that won the Nobel Prize for it, Kary Mullis, Ph.D.  Go to
yahoo or any other web server and look him up.  I was told that he answers
emails.

Another benefit would be to read about his views regarding HIV and the use
of the PCR.  He stated in an interview that I watched, that the PCR cannot
be used for determining viral loads.  You will never get accurate numbers.
According to Dr. Mullis, the numbers you will get will always be higher than
reality.
