Aids 'genocide' advert condemned
By Roland Pease BBC Science correspondent.

The UN said the advert was "wrong and misleading". Medical researchers and health organisations have condemned an advert promoting vitamin supplements as a safe and effective way to treat HIV/Aids.

The full-page advert, published in the International Herald Tribune and the New York Times, says anti-retroviral drugs are a form of genocide.

Anti-retroviral drugs are the most effective treatment for HIV/Aids.

The advertising campaign started last year in South Africa, where Aids workers were quick to condemn it.
