Oh My!!

Of course the main (only?) cause of AIDS relates to HIV!!

So, the website shoudl actually say HIV and not AIDS.

Main cause of AIDS is poorly managed HIV.

Queers, Junkies and African hookers? Avoid and you will be OK - or am I completely non PC and out of touch? :confused:

Yea as I suspected...........

Still, it's fascinating to learn that AIDS can be caused by a "strong magnetic field" or an "Ivorian air strike"..........

Shared needles are a major source, even in hospitals...

Amazing. If you click on the 'full article link' it list more info. Under parent cause of death' (whatever that is supposed to mean) it lists Assassination in ways which appear natural

And who knew that a Chechen separatist was a cause.


I'm almost lost for words.... :blink:

I suspect that the website has some kind of automatic trawling of other websites, electronic papers etc.

There's a list of sources, most of which seem reputable.

So, an article that says "More people in country X have AIDS due to war " gets interpreted as "war causes AIDS", when actually it'd be the lack of healthcare availablity which means HIV is undertreated and therefore progresses to AIDS...along with increased lawlessness -> rape ->HIV->AIDS
