  • This is a stupidly edited copy of a much more detailed presentation of Dr Satya Gutta & al. from here:

    This author did nothing but 'decorated' it with a number of ugly photos and added some incredibly retarded, earthbound, middle age thoughts such as 'if you have HIV you must stop having sex' and similar.

    Laughable. Are you serious that HIV infected people no longer will have sex because you say so? They won't stop and suggesting it is a sign of imbecility.

      • In some city inner areas, as many as 50% of males are HIV positive
      • AIDS is now the second leading cause of death for all men aged 25-44 years

      • Most dangerous sexual practice: anal intercourse
      • Recent evidence that HIV can be transmitted by oral sex
    • 9. Prevention There's no vaccine to prevent HIV infection and no cure for AIDS. But it's possible to protect yourself and others from infection. That means educating yourself about HIV and avoiding any behavior that allows HIV-infected fluids — blood, semen, vaginal secretions and breast milk — into your body.

    • 13. How HIV attack cells
    • 14. Causative agent: Human Immuno-deficiency Virus
    • 15.  
    • 16. How HIV infects the human body
      • When HIV enters the blood, it invades certain cells of the immune system, including T cells, which help other lymphocytes identify and destroy pathogens.
      • The viruses take over the cells, cause them to produce new copies of themselves, and the newly produced viruses break out of the cell, destroying them.
      • The new viruses infect other cells, and then the process repeats itself.
