Lowering the body temp. to get rid of AIDS?
I remember hearing that people can't get AIDS from a mosquito that bit a AIDS infected person and then you because the body Temperature of the Mosquito is too low for the AIDS virus to servive the travel between two people no matter how close it is between the two.thats how fragile the AIDS virus is.

So couldnt you do some sort of cryogenic procedure to lower the body temperature just low and long enough to kill the AIDS, and then revive the person?

MMMM ignorance, so according to your post, Americans are more precious than anyone else in the world? Some Americans are very pathetic and terrible, but besides the point, what if you got aids? hmm, then we could laugh at you while you rot away. Your thoughts on this is pathetic, how could you not care about the innocents that cant do anything beacuse of the disease? The people in Africa? your condeming millions to death just for your little e ego to grow.

Yes, lets. I mean, if we stop thinking about it, it HAS to go away someday.
Doesn't it?

Man those African orphans are so stupid, being the children of infected parents.

So do you believe that the aforementioned African children, blood donors (before new blood transfusion techniques were developed) and all the other 'selfish' victims 'deserve it'?

No because only stupid, selfish careless idiots get it, and they deserve it.

look you are being a hypocrite...Aids is a fashion disease....it's the latest fad after Sars and Avian flu...

you are simpley letting yourself brainwashed by the latest media angst.


The biggest causes of death is malnutrition,lack of clean water,basic health care,malaria....you got that...

6000 men,women,children get killed a day by malaria...but because it does not appear on FoxNews it's ignored.....

So stop whining about Aids...

The real reason you are "concerned" about Aids is you want a treatment in case YOU get Aids from sleeping around or from your own lifestyle choices...

Nope, AIDS came before either one of those. I don't quite understand how you think AIDS is fashionable or a fashion. Yeah there are those who get it by being reckless but what about those who never had a choice? Blood recipients, children born with it. First responders who contract it through trying to save someones life, Cops and fellow Corrections Officers who contract it because some sicko spits bloody saliva in their eye, etc.

6000 men,women,children get killed a day by malaria...but because it does not appear on FoxNews it's ignored.....

Because malaria is a CURABLE disease unlike AIDS.

The real reason you are "concerned" about Aids is you want a treatment in case YOU get Aids from sleeping around or from your own lifestyle choices...

Perhaps you should be concerned with the T&C regarding personal attacks.

I will not get aids as I am smart and i dont want to die so i would not make wrong life style choices.

If people in Africa can buy billions of guns to shoot each other then they can buy themselves an education and the basic amenities required for civilized existance.

But they have shown to be totally incapable.

Look at Americans...

We created America in only 300 years by simple hard work.

We turned an empty sandy wasteland into one of the most advanced and complex civilizations on the planet since history began...all in only 300 years...

how did we do this?

By not sitting around and waiting for handouts...

We worked very hard day and night...

We carved a continent into the greatest super power ever.



A fantastic creation.

Look at Africa...they had a head start of a million years and they are still living in mudhuts and cant even feed themselves...they are just lazy and a burden.

Waiting for handouts all their lives.

We should stop all aid. it's just being used to buy guns and spread terror by their rotton and corrupt leaders.

Look at America... 50 states voluntarily joined together to form the United States of America....we are rich..powerful...we are the number 1 superpower...we are democratic...with liberty and justice for all..

We outstared and destroyed Russia without firing a single shot.

We ground then down until they exploded and splintered..

Russia is splintered into a dozen banana republics and already fighting among themselves.Showing themselves to be incapable of civilized behaviour....

I don't think you could kill the virus that way without killing the person too.

However, even if you could kill the virus that was in the blood, that wouldn't scrape the genetic code out of the infected T-cells. The problem is, HIV is a retrovirus. It inserts its code into the T-cells' DNA. At that point, the virus is "gone" until the rewritten cell DNA gets the cue to activate that section that now programs for viral production.

In order to effect a 'cure', you'd have to not only eliminate all the virus in the body, but you'd have to kill all the infected T-cells, if you could find them. You'd either have to introduce some sort of enzyme that could scan the DNA for the viral code and excise it, or maybe you could trigger all the infected ones off at once while you were killing the viruses in the blood. At any rate, any 'cure' will have to address latent HIV hiding in the DNA of cells as well as all the viruses in the blood at that time.

People here are WAY off - Both on topic, and what AIDS is.

AIDS is "Acquired Immune Deficiency Disease". It is a SYMPTOMATIC disease, not a disease that can jump from person to person! AIDS is caused by HIV, a virus, while AIDS in it self is just a SYNDROME based on the fact that your immunesystem is getting destroyed due to a loss of helper-T white bloodcells (CD4 leukocytes) caused by the HIV-infection.

And since HIV is a virus, you won't be able to destroy it, since you would basically kill yourself doing it, because it is in you cells.

Wow escellum man do do you have a soul?

Also, read this.


Over 42 million people are living with HIV/AIDS, and 74 percent of these infected people live in sub-Saharan Africa.

Source

Thats 42 million that are eventually going to die and spread it to their partners, and or children. Thats quite a lot, even when compared to malaria, which is curable and easier to prevent.


Malaria kills 3,000 children each day and more than one million each year, the majority in sub-Saharan Africa. Yet, this disease is preventable and treatable with existing tools.

Source

As for the original topic, I do no think that people could get to cold enough temperatures to kill the virus without killing themselves. Perhaps the real reason the mosquito isn't effected is because of its different immune systems. They are able to carry malaria without trouble, but we suffer from it. Different disease effect different animals differently(wow thats a little repetitious).

It is you American who sell guns to Africa, it is you who teach them gold, oil, and your capitalism civilisation.

You robbed America, you colonise America, and with the money you made you built America and then you try to rob other countries, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, African countries.

I think you are fat.

Talk about ignorance. I must deny it.

I'm a very smart person. And I have HIV. I know lots of other very smart people who have HIV. It doesn't pick & choose and your judgment of people is why women in countries like Africa and Japan, as well as women in certain segments of the American population can't go to their families for help and support.

People make mistakes, people are lied to, people get tainted blood from transfusions, virgins in Africa are raped by men who were told that they would be cured that way, kids are born with it from mothers who didn't know they were infected by their cheating husbands, ad infinitum.

Your attitude is appalling.

Now I'm sure you're going to lambast me, but know in your heart that you are absolutely, unequivocally wrong, and this is one of those times that everyone's opinion is NOT equal.

[edit to stay on topic, sorry] I wouldn't be frozen unless it was a very safe procedure. With the meds I'm on, I can live a normal lifespan. I'll try a cure, yes, but it has to be safe to use. I have children I need to live for.

If you could take every individual who is HIV+, and I mean EVERY one of them, and then freeze them, you could stop the spread of HIV. So long as they remain frozen the virus cannot infect anyone else. But that is the same as putting them in Jail or concentration camps. Yeah, that is a good idea. Then we can also lock up anyone who doesn't follow the orders of the NWO and the supreme leader Bush. While we are at it, lets seize everyone's property and make them work for the state for free. Hard labor is good for you and besides, who needs money when the overlords give you bread and water three times a day.

Currently we cannot freeze people and then bring them back. Simply lowering their body temps would not cure them. Once you become HIV+ it gets into your system and become part of you. It is not at all like curing Malaria and people popsicles don't taste so good.

Contrary to an earlier post, HIV is not always a lifestyle problem. Many have become infected in ways that have little to do with their life style choices. Cancer is often the result of lifestyle choices. Smoking is a great way to get cancer. Yumm. Cancer sticks.

Remember folks.... Kissing a smoker, is like licking an ashtray!
