He's been HIV+ since the late 90's and stopped taking medication to treat it a very long time ago.
How is Jeff Palmer still alive?
|by Anonymous||reply 80||05/04/2021|
I know one who has been HIV+ since the late 80s and he is still alive and several friends, relatives and co workers younger than him have died from heart attacks, pancreatic cancer and automobile accidents. HIV is not he absolute death sentence it was originally thought to be and my friend was the first person I knew who had it and he's fine. I do know 2 other people who died from it rather quickly in the early 90s.

I really think this would somehow make the 'news' (i.e. be known via the internet) if Jeff Palmer passed away.

The only people I know who have been HIV+ for 25 years or more have been on meds that entire time. A lot of them look fine, never been in the hospital and test undetectable. The one thing they had in common is that they started drug therapy long before they got sick.
A lot of guys back then waited until they hit bottom to start any kind of real therapy, All the ones I knew who distrusted western medicine are dead now. They tried everything from Chinese herbs, to magic mushrooms, to enemas with Bitter Melon. They tried praying, alternative religion and spiritual enlightenment. The only one they would not try was modern medicine. Irronicly that was the only thing at the end of the day that could have saved their lives.
There are people who have a special gene mutation that renders the virus ineffective, but it's really rare like 1 in a million. They can test for that now.

R6 No. It should be the opposite. He's been unmedicated for over 20 years and it doesn't seemed to have progressed for the worst.

Lots of closeted actors at the time would not admit they were on meds. Wouldn't surprise me if even now, even being out, they still cling to the lie.

Jeff Palmer is another porn actor from a few decades ago that denizens of DL from a certain demographic have a fascination with. . His name frequently is mentioned in various "WEHT "X" porn" threads.

Wasn't one of the characters from the film "Pride" based on one of the first few people in the UK to be diagnosed as HIV positive? The end credits revealed that he is still alive and well.

Maybe, somehow, HIV only attacked his brain. God knows the only things I ever heard about him were batshit crazy.
|by Anonymous||reply 14||02/01/2021|
he obviously went on med, eventually. he was looking wasted and would have been dead more than a decade ago. His public announcements about not taking trips thereby must be 15 year or longer ago. I just assumed eventually he started taking them and, no longer a "cowboy" anti-science person, just faded into anonymity.

If have numbers correct Jeff Palmer would be 45 years old this year.
Wouldn't be surprised if Jeff Palmer found religion in his "hour of need". His parents were (or are if still living) evangelical Christians, and IIRC his porn was one way of rebelling against that upbringing.

What evidence does DL ever have in response to "WEHT" queries about porn actors who've long dropped out of sight. Other than what can be found in public information (including death notices) have to assume a person is still living, or things remain a mystery.
We know Jeff Palmer's real name (David Zuloaga) and to date no one has produced a death notice, certificate or anything else proving he's dead.
If this is indeed same Jeff Palmer his Twitter account is active....

R23, those cases are rare.
R4 got it right. But the “western medicines” for treatment weren’t as “western” as they are today. Meaning today you can take one pill and be fine, back then you took handfuls with lots of symptoms.

OMG...please don't say that.
It was not *thought to be" deadly, it WAS deadly. HIV is absolutely a death sentence for 99% of the infected if untreated. Thousands died before anyone lifted a finger to create a treatment for it. I was only 15 when young, beautiful, healthy young men began dropping like flies. Like wasting away and dying in a matter of weeks. There are generations of mentors, activists, artists, advocates, role models and leaders missing from the Gay male community because they loved other men and it was fatal. Why do you think we're so f*cked up now?

Edmund White the writer, teacher and gay health advocate is a proven "Long-term Non Progressor" who didn't need treatment for 3 decades. May have started as an old man, in recent years when the drugs have become very very good with no heavy side effects. I know a non-famous person in the same boat. His immune system was never damaged but he started around 2010 when there were many new molecules introduced.

He's moronically dumb. Two decades a meth head. Took more loads than grandma's Maytag. Spread HIV to many others. Then he turned AIDS denier and religious zealot. Had his own blog about it - telling his fans to refuse life saving treatments and accept jesus. Did I mention he started out as a moron? Jeff Palmer is a waste of human energy and life.

My one of my best friend is a long term non-progressor. He’s been HIV+ since about 1988 or even earlier he’s not sure and until recently had never taken any medication for it. But at 58, he’s started HIV treatment, not because he needed it, but because his doctor said at his age who knows how his immune system will change. And admittedly, if anyone sneezes near him he’ll catch a cold. So he’s in bed with a mild cold occasionally. But has never had any HIV related illnesses.
Not that this matters but he’s absolutely gorgeous even at his age and still has a great body. He jokes that the only exercise he does is picking up a fork and lifting it to his mouth. Also he’s is a regular at the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, etc, walking his celebrity clients down the red carpet (he works in high end PR)

A small proportion of humans show partial or apparently complete inborn resistance to HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The main mechanism is a mutation of the gene encoding CCR5, which acts as a co-receptor for HIV. It is estimated that the proportion of people with some form of resistance to HIV is under 10%.
