AIDS Denialist dies of... wait for it... AIDS

AIDS denialist Christine Maggiore dies of AIDS at the age of 51. Let's hope nobody else dies as a result of her wreckless denialism!
Maggiore had long been a controversial figure, particularly following the death of her 3-year-old daughter, Eliza Jane Scovill, in May 2005. The Los Angeles County coroner concluded that Eliza Jane had died of Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia as a result of untreated AIDS. Maggiore had not taken medication to reduce the risk of transmission of HIV to her daughter during pregnancy, and she did not have Eliza Jane tested for HIV during her daughter's lifetime. A veterinary toxicologist (and AIDS denialist retained by Maggiore to review the autopsy report disagreed with the coroner's conclusion, stating that he believed Eliza Jane's death was due to an allergic reaction to amoxicillin.
