As realflight hasn't posted he has forfeited this turn and i will now continue the arguments of my side.
In this post, in order to show how fragile and sloppy AIDS is, i will present the methods that stops its transition from person to person, from sexual
methods to the sharing of syringes.
Sex and the transmission of fluid.
Sexual hygene is the practice of following certain health rules. In this, the age of AIDS, sexual hygiene means avoiding the exchange of body fluids
and secretions during sex.
Semen, vaginal and cervical secretions, blood, urine, feces, saliva, tears, and mother's milk from one person should not be placed into the mouth,
nose, eyes, ears, vagina, anus, or open wounds (even microscopic) of another person. As mentioned previously, the hands often have microscopic wounds
around the cuticles which have came about through normal daily life, and remain unseen for the most part..
How to erect physical barriers
Use latex condoms to reduce the risk of catching or transmitting HIV. Condoms should be used for anal, oral, and vaginal intercourse, as this
interrupts the flow of fluids to your partners skin.
Semen is a potentially contaminated substance. If contaminated, it is highly infectious. Neither semen nor pre-ejaculation fluid should come into
contact with mucous membrane surfaces. Ideally, semen should not come into contact with a person's hands eithe due to the wounds at the base of the
fingernails. Ideally, latex gloves should be worn to prevent hand-to-semen contact.(however unattractive they may be)
For those wondering why i'm talking about this, it is to expose just how fragile the AIDS and HIV virii are, they take many years to kill and can be
stopped with very little effort, its mainly through complacency that the virii continue to spread
Selection of a Sex Partner.
One form of protection against transmission is careful selection of sexual partners.
Avoid having sex with partners who; have sex with numerous people, with HIV-infected people, with drug users (including steroid users), with people
who have sex with HIV-infected people, with people whose HIV status is unknown, and so on.
IV Needle Precautions.
All intravenous (IV) needles and hypodermic needles should be destroyed immediately after one use ONLY. Anyone who shares IV needles or hypodermic
needles with other people is at risk for catching AIDS. There is some danger if the IV needles or hypodermic needles are being re-used in medical
settings due to complacency or lack of funding, as is common in some Third World countries. If you happen to be in a foreign country during the
outbreak of some infectious diseases, such as cholera, you may be required to accept injections in order to cross country borders. In some instances,
travelers have been injected with re-used IV needles and/or hypodermic needles.
You can buy your own IV/Hypodermic needles from travel shops which are clearly marked for medical use only.
I felt this post was needed even though some will think its off track, it outlines the measures that can be taken to avoid the spread of AIDS/HIV
which further illustrates the point that AIDS is not a fantastic killing machine engineered in some laboratory deep underground, it is a simple
terrible disease that is spread through the complacency of humans, drugs can be used to treat infections and anti-hiv spermicides are available.
These drugs can cost alot of money in african countries and may require up to 20 pills a day to work effectively against it, however the problem in
africa is that most people do not have watches, and cannot stick to a schedule.
