just did a little googling on this, mixed results, I suggest you do the same and read for yourself, but it would seem that bleach is a good preventive message for stopping the transmission of the HIV virus when used to clean syringes and is targetted campaign message for IV drug users. Some other sources suggest that bleach may be used in trying to formulate a cure since it can effectively kill the virus outside of the body, however I don't believe that would constitute that there is a "cure" yet.

Please do not inject your self with bleach - It will cure you of AIDS, but it will also cure you of life. As a Nurse with 5 years experience of Critical Care, I can assure you that the corrosive nature of bleach will strip you clean within minutes of injection. I once had a young patient who had attempted to commit suicide by ingestion of just over three bottles of bleach. Not only was the patient in very seriouse medical state, but also presented a very real danger to all the staff involved in the resus attempt. Intubation was impossible due to the horrific burns to the mouth and throat and on every chest compression bleach was forced into the air as aerosol - The end result was an agonising death which traumatised many members of staff for quite some time.
Please do not inject bleach into yourselves, its not healthy or wise.

As a proponent to natural selection, maybe we should suggest them to infact inject bleach into themselves?

All treatments to date work by either stopping or killing the virus before transmission can occur ie: condoms or clean needles or simply keep the symptoms at bay ie: AZT etc.
