HIV's spread around Europe mapped


news.bbc.co.uk

Scientists who have mapped HIV's spread across Europe say holidaymakers infected abroad are largely to blame.

By analysing samples from 17 European countries, the international team tracked the movement of the virus around the continent.

Their map shows Greece, Portugal, Serbia and Spain are big HIV exporters, with many tourists to and migrants from these countries leaving with the virus.

The UK is an exporter and importer, Retrovirology journal says.

export and import. that is exactly what it is. for them it is only a bussiness. Poor Portugal, Spain and Greece. they leave from tourists right now. and except the HIV they have no other export in that crisis time.

when HIV will ruin the tourism they are totally screwed.

what is the reason for this kind of researches to go on. who is funding them?

conclusion from the report:

""Tourists travelling abroad should definitely pack condoms, but people should also be aware that HIV is at its highest level in the UK as well.

"To protect yourself from HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, safer sex is essential both at home and abroad." "

what a great find. milions of euro worth discovery...

Well from what i have seen through Greece, Spain, Italy, more and more tourists who visit those country's during summer just go wild, they have no self control. The most frightening part is that its the younger generation of tourists entering those summer spots have no idea what they are doing, its like there living their last days on earth. Sex with anyone and under the influence of large amounts of alcohol. I guess their country's are also to blame with so many strict rule forced onto their citizens as a result when they enter a country with relaxed rules due to their social structure they simply go wild.

Always remember to cover your Lover

If your a girl BUY and CARRY condoms if going abroad.

It does not make you a "slag" etc, dont worry what your peer group or friends think, in another 10 yrs you will be in a new circle of people anyway and still healthy and have no "little confessions" to discuss with any life mate, before you get together.

If your a man use them to, At least she wont think it was over to quick either!!

Win Win situation, no fear, No STD's HIV included (if in fact it is the cause of AIDS ??)

And no Pedro saying



Hello Dad


18 yrs later when you are married with a couple of young Kids and get that email or knock at the door.



In fact, the ability of latex condoms to prevent transmission of HIV has been scientifically established in "real-life" studies of sexually active couples as well as in laboratory studies.

Fantastic Study on Condoms effectiveness against contracting STD's
