==It’s like cancer, if the disease doesn’t kill, the medicines taken to fight it will.

Except, unlike cancer, they put completely healthy HIV+ patients on chemo, and keep them on it, until the day they die.

Mr. Kramer, 73 and a long-term survivor, said he had always suspected “it was only a matter of time before stuff like this happened”

Not the first time I have heard of a 70+ person lamenting the fact that their body was deteriorating due to any number of causes.

In addition to the lifestyle effects, there is this phenomenon called getting old.

People with HIV are no more "healthy" than people with dengue are "healthy". And ARV treatment has been repeated proven to extend lifespan of HIV+ people.

Why do you insist on posting comments that suggest HIV+ people should not take medication?
