Please read following points carefully & don't send emails related to
Medical ailments without having complete knowledge about it (even
partial knowledge could be grossly dangerous).

* HIV (virus) requires *ONLY* *Blood or Semen* as medium to transmit
from one body to another.

* HIV *can not* transmit even through *Saliva*(mucous) i.e. even if
HIV-infected patient coughs or smooches and another person is exposed
to his sputum (cough) or saliva, the virus still can not transmit
because concentration of virus particles in sputum is almost NIL & exposure
to air anyway kills virus in fraction of seconds

In case an HIV-infected person gets an injury (like the cut in
below mentioned story) and he is bleeding, the virus can transmit to
another person only if another person has a cut/wound in his body & that too
when blood from both person comes in contact with each other* (this is
also very very rare unless bleeding is very high) and not otherwise.

* HIV can *never survive in any other liquid* medium also other than
blood or semen (& please for God sake ... never in Pani Puri wala pani)

* Even if one drinks an HIV infected blood (or semen) of someone
(ingest through Gastro Intestinal track), the virus can not survive in the
acidic pH of stomach*. Highest extent of acidity is 0 (practically not
possible) so imagine 1 as pH which is in our stomach. (This pH can burn
your own finger in less than a second if you dip in that acid).

* Exposure of less than 1 second in AIR KILLS the HIV virus*(hence
story of needle pricks in Cinema theatres is a crap). Even if blood from
a wound (of infected person) dries up (*blood clot*), *the virus
dies*and can not infect anyone else

* HIV transmission is *ONLY* an *INFECTION* i.e.entrance of virus in
one's body. It *DOES NOT MEAN AIDS*.
* An HIV-infected person (after entrance of virus) can progress to a
condition of AIDS only after *8 to 10 YEARS *(not in 15 days as in the
Pani Puri story)

* It is *not HIV (virus) that kills a human* .....the virus attacks
immune cells (cells that fight against foreign pathogens/antigens) and
hence a person's ability to fight against infections & diseases slowly
diminishes and person ultimately dies of a disease which could be as
simple as TB

* Most importantly, HIV is no longer a dreadful disease ... it is
"*CHRONIC MANAGEABLE DISEASE*" just like Diabetes or Hypertension.
