Positively The Facts

So I told you this coming. I don't blame you of your not quite ready to read all this so feel free to click away now. It took me several times myself. However I would gently remind you that is called willful ignorance and it doesn't do anyone any good.

I'm going to keep posting on this so you'll have more chances.

Because today I'm posting the facts about HIV one bullet point at a time.

-The virus has never been transmitted in a normal home environment.


- It cannot be passed through urine, tears, sweat, vomit, or fecal matter.

-The virus can only be passed through blood, sexual fluids, and breastmilk.

- The virus does not live long outside of the body and must enter the bloodstream to transmit. So basically I must go from bloodstream to bloodstream. (i. e. needle sharing)

- Healthy skin is an effective barrier against transmission.

- In most cases less than a year after treatment is begun the virus becomes undetectable in the lab.

- When the virus becomes undetectable the risk of transmission is lowered to basically nothing.

- A person that is being regularly treated an live a healthy normal life with a normal life span.
