    Aids

    Does the AIDS virus spread through saliva ???
    Suppose you smooch somebody, there will be
    exchange of saliva. Does the virus spread this way.
    I always thought it was through blood or
    sexual encounter.

    I believe you are correct.. it would take an ENORMOUS amount of saliva to contract the HIV virus... almost to the point of NOT possible.

    i am 99.9% sure that you cannot contract HIV via saliva.
    bleeding gums, cold sores, or cuts in the mouth - YES.
    swapping spit - NO.

    and just for the record, AIDS does not spread. HIV does. you get AIDS from HIV.
    pay better attention in health class - it could save your life.



    Ah, these boys is all swelled up. So this was earlier...getting set to trade. Then, woooaaah differences.

    Also a fallacy. However, the combined efforts of Poison, Def Leppard, Motley Cre and to some extent Ratt were responsible for a mass outbreak of the clap in parts of the United States and Eastern Europe in the 80's.

    The most common causes of AIDS being transmitted are:

    Using a toilet after someone who has AIDS.
    Holding hands.
    Being sneezed on.
    Kissing monkeys.
    If someone who has AIDS cooks some food for you, you will get AIDS - Even if you don't eat the food.
    Winking at someone with AIDS.
    Sharing a secret with someone who has AIDS.

    Sorry.. I wasn't actually making fun of AIDS really.. I was just thinking of a leaflet we got when I was at school and it had loads of different pictures on it showing what you can and cant get aids from... most of the reasons I listed were obviously in there under 'CAN'T'..

    Apart from the monkey one... I made that up.. and the winking and the one about sharing a secret..

    Isn't doing other things with monkeys how HIV/AIDS got into the human population?

    Ha, I love that one.

    Eating monkeys, actually.


    On the other note, at age 21 I actually contracted a slight case of Ratt rash when I put Way Cool Jr. on replay and then fell asleep.
