Needles can transmit aids, but needle-like mosquitoes can't?????????????

www.qac.org...

Even after looking though this topic, it still appears that something could be overlooked in this phenomena.

HIV can't live outside of the human host for long, and mosquito body temperature is not high enough to simulate it. Good thing, too. If HIV could spread like malaria or dengue fever does, by mosquito, that's be all she wrote.

Actually, the discoverers of HIV (HTLV, as it was known in the early days) wrote a book entitled, "What They're Not Telling You About AIDS". In it they declared that 1) the AIDS virus has been shown to live on a countertop at room temperature and be viable (transmissible) after 15 days. 2) that the AIDS virus tends to attach to the tubercle bacilli in a human host making the disease potentially airborn. In other words, if someone who already has untreated TB develops AIDS, they have the potential to spread not only the tuberculosis but the AIDS virus attached to it. 3) when it became apparent that AIDS was spreading at an alarming rate and people were calling it an epidemic, the CDC changed the way it counted AIDS patients. It used to be that anyone who tested positive for HIV was counted but the numbers pointed to an obvious epidemic so now only those who have Kaposi's sarcoma or pneumocystis carinii pneumonia are counted as having AIDS. HIV positive people are counted separately. 4) viruses are much, much smaller than bacteria so that if a mosquito (or any other blood-sucking vector of death) can pass on a relatively large bacteria, then a virus can slip through quite easily via mosquito, or tick bite.
Considering that the book was written by the 2 discoverers of the AIDS virus, I tend to put more weight on their learned opinions than on those of the CDC who have the side job of not alarming the public.

This is definately a good thing. I've read a few other HIV threads on here, and so far there's no cure. Hopefully soon there will be.
