I have told myself to take a break from KMC, but I stumbled upon articles which I couldn't keep to myself. HIV/AIDS is a worry which not only runs through my mind often, but the minds of so many other people.
In Britain, there is a man who tested positive for HIV in 2002, but a year later tested negative. What this means is that he beat HIV. He cured himself. Is this possible ?
I expected actual evidence, not this! It starts out with you not realising the possibilty of a faulty test, then after the shock of that, one realises the year is 2002. Surely something as great as this would've made the news, or covered up and ranted on by conspiracy nuts.
Also, you make gay jokes in a thread about Jesus, but not in a thread about HIV? That, like Chewbacca, does NOT make sense.
Okay, how the hell could it be a possible lab error ?
HIV tests work by discovering the presence of HIV antibodies within the bloodstream. The test can only come positive if there is a response within the body to the virus.
Unless the doctors were really that stupid that they confused an ordinary blood cell with an HIV antibody.
I really hope it is true, because honestly, so many people are dying needlessly just as a result of having sex. Protected or unprotected, gay or straight, monogamous or promiscuous, married or single.
I have heard stories about people in certain parts of the world who acquired HIV and no longer have it (or atleast the symptons were completely gone, and the virus has had no effect on the body-remember though, HIV virus can stay dormant for over a decade).
But then agian, I don't know, it's just my wishful thinking.
Just keep in mind...ofcourse we know what a horrible disease AIDS is, but there are a lot of people who look, feel, and are actually healthy, despite having the HIV virus. Life for those with HIV/AIDS is definately an improvement to what it was once decades ago.
I do not find the idea of HIV being eradicated in one's body completely far-fetched.
It's just the Irony of the Virus though: It's fragile as hell. It dies in the air within one minute. It dies in saliva, because of the enzymes which break it down, and it also cannot survive in urine or stomach acid.
However, once it reaches the bloodstream, it's a safehaven. The Virus may be weak, but it's intelligent as hell. The virus keeps changing in an effort to out do the Immune System, while at the same time, destroying it.
On top of that, it messes around with a cell's genetic code, implanting itself into the cell. That's the danger, because even if you destroy the active viruses, there are still plenty of dormant viral codes within the genetic structure of the cells it targetted.
