    In reality, AIDS being limited to mostly the Homosexual population is only true in the US and Europe. In Africa and South America, AIDS is primarily a Heterosexual phenomena, while in Russia and China, the primary disease vector is blood transfusions and contaminated medical needles...

    so you are saying that ANYONE CAN GET aids BY anal seX NOT JUST HOMOSEXUALS.
    So bascially it is a 50/50 chance to contract AIDS, homo or hetero correct?

    Right. If the virus gets into your bloodstream then you will get it. It doesn't matter if you are a homosexual or not.

    If you have unprotected anal sex with someone who has the virus, you will, in all likelihood, contract the virus yourself. So sexual orientation itself is not exactly a factor, it's just that anal sex (especially with multiple partners) is commonly associated with homosexual males. Let's say it this way, anyone who engages in behavior that has been found to expedite the spread of HIV is at risk for contracting it. Make sense?

    And also keep in mind that someone can be infected (and spreading the virus) without symptoms, as it can take months to years for the AIDS syndrome to show up... The current treatments for HIV and AIDS are not a cure, they simply delays the development of the disease. (Which can actually make the disease worse for society, as if an infected person stays alive longer, he also has a longer time to spread the virus to others...)

    The HIV virus isn't the first of this kind of disease to show up. In another age, the curse 'A POX on you!' wasn't a reference to smallpox. The disease known as Syphilis was so bad on society and culture that it directly contributed to the sexual prudishness of the Victorian Age....

    Actually, there is a cure for AIDS.
    I cannot give you links but I will try to give you a link to the video on the discovery health network where they have found a cure for AIDS. They used DNA from the people who were immune to the plague back in the 1600's when it wiped out almost half of europe. Cetain people were immune and their great great grandchildren also have that same immunity only to AIDS.
    they discovered said cure in france since the technology they are using is banned in America

    Actually, this is inherited RESISTANCE to AIDS, and not a cure. Unless your born homozygous with this very rare gene (and having two copies of this rare gene is very very rare!!!), then tough luck, as its not possible to change your parents after the fact, and the white blood cells can't be transfered in quantity without a serious risk of a fatal transplant/host rejection.

    And here's a nice link you can look over... SECRETS OF THE DEAD . Mystery of the Black Death | PBS:
