Once again thanks to Pepijn for bringing the following to our attention.
AIDS IS A KEBAB! HONESTLY! If the Egyptian Army ever decide they don't need this guy anymore then there is a great career ahead for him as a comedian:
I wonder if they ever ask why Allah is so kind to give us such lovely diseases, and then, to really rub it in sends fools like this to 'cure' us?
UPDATE 0711 26/02/2014
Good news! Pepijn has sent us a link to a story from an Egyptian news site called Almogaz. The translation is not perfect, but it seems that Dr Essam Heggy, Scientific Advisor to the Egyptian President, has condemned the C-FAST (also now sometimes being called I-FAST). Well done Dr Heggy! Here is the link to the original, and below the translation.

UPDATE 1424 25/02/2014
A new development in the story...
In the following video you will see the literally unbelievable C-FAST 'detector' developed in Egypt for diagnosing diseases such as Hep C and AIDS.
BUT..in this video they also present the CCD (Complete Cure Device). Watch and let us know what you think. Could it be true? My bet is unlikely, but am no medico so not qualified to judge.
UPDATE 1635 24/02/2014 Can anyone give us a summary of this report please? Either leave a comment or send me an email. THANKS!
Pepijn has also spotted this report, which suggests that an advisor to the Egyptian President is calling for an independent review, which would be excellent. We think that since Pepijn published his blog post, the media have been bombarding the Egyptian Government with skeptical enquiries and that this report is the result. let's hope they do it properlY! We will keep you informed if we hear more.
UPDATE: We are told by an informant who asked to try out the C-FAST that they were refused on the grounds that optimal performance requires a lot of training. I wonder where we have heard that excuse before? Oh yes. The bomb 'detector' guys like McCormick and Bolton used to say exactly the same thing, and they used to charge for the training too! Cheeky buggers!
Some of you might remember my post about a dodgy device called the C-FAST which was claimed to be able to detect Hepatitis infection. See link below.
Well now we are told it can also diagnose HIV infection as well! OH YEAH!
Sadly, despite the best efforts of this blog and many others to put a stop to this nonsense, it has reared its ugly antenna again. Please see here:

When is something patently bullshit?
