In 1993, Davis became involved with an intentional community near Berlin, Germany, called ZEGG, and was cook and captain for their whale and dolphin research ship, the Kairos, in the Canary Islands.

Returning to the US in 1996, Davis wrote a paper published on the Internet called "AIDS"gate, outlining the case against HIV as the cause of AIDS and providing evidence that the drug AZT was responsible for 95% of the AIDS deaths from 1987 to 1997.

In 1998, Davis returned to the horse ranch near Prescott, Arizona as business manager, specializing in the breeding and sale of buckskin horses. He also became very active in Al-Anon and designed a new and highly successful program for drug and alcohol recovery.

  • "I have never had a homosexual experience, nor have I ever used any recreational drugs. I am also HIV-negative and have never known anyone who had AIDS. In that sense, I am completely objective. But from the very beginning, probably from the combination of my medical training and my own personal experiences in government, I did not believe the media story that HIV caused AIDS, or that AIDS was contagious, or that it was transmitted by sexual contact. However, I was not aware of all the political intrigue, lies, or money-motivated manipulations that have accompanied this medical disaster until I read Dr. Peter Duesberg's book, Inventing the AIDS Virus. The problem is that today we’re still killing hundreds of thousands of innocent women and children in Africa with the very same drug that killed 300,000 Americans in ten years, and at the same time giving perfectly healthy people in the U.S. a death sentence by incorrectly proclaiming them to be HIV positive."
