The Infectious Myth - Trisha Morrison on Tommy “The Duke” Morrison - 02.20.18
In episode 175 David interviews Trisha Morrison, widow of famous boxer Tommy “The Duke” Morrison. Tommy was banned from boxing in 1996 because he was told that he had tested positive for HIV. What kind of test was done? How reliable is it? Do any HIV tests prove infection? Trisha is suing the boxing commission, Quest laboratories and various doctors for what she believes was a false diagnosis that destroyed Tommy’s multi-million dollar career. Tommy, sadly, is no longer with us. He died in 2013 following a surgery that left 12 feet of gauze (4 meters) in his chest, where it became infected before it was discovered by Trisha and removed.
