And in more breaking news.
Scientists have discovered that bears really do sh*t in the woods.
It’s funny how this is treated versus, say, tobacco use.
This data is several weeks old. I’m on the mailing list for it, and noted the patterns at the time. Why is CNN pushing this today? Did they get a memo from the Messiah saying these are this weekend’s talking points?
I believe as I have heard other scientists report that the reason for alot of blacks and other races being so succeptible to the actual AIDS is due to a genetic immunity from the Black Death in Europe.
They are now thinking that the Black Death was not the bubonic plague because the bubonic plague is a bacteria carried by rats and Iceland was hit with this plague where there were no rats or mice. So they believe the Black Death was viral in nature and a variation of the HIV virus, but more virulent.
This would make sense why there are so many cases of full blown AIDS in Africa and why they seem to die so much quicker.
“highlighting which age, gender and racial groups are at higher risk”
I thought it was certain BEHAVIORS that increased the risk of contracting HIV. Wouldn’t all heterosexual, monogamous, non-intervenous drug users be in the same demographic, regardless of ethnicity?
Great name for modern rock/punk band: The New HIV Infections.
If you form a band with this name, please credit library user. :O)
Why is the HIV virus so racist and anti-gay rights?
Again and again, as my doctors always tell me:
“Wear condoms, stick to one partner, don’t cheat, make sure your partner isn’t the cheating type and don’t do drugs.”
Chances are, if you do all of those, you will be a VERY low risk for HIV, black, white, Asian; gay or straight.
marked difference in age at the time of infection in the different racial groups. "They include the difficulty of consistently maintaining safer behaviors for many years or even decades, as well as homophobia, substance abuse and higher HIV prevalence within this group."
Can anyone explain that 2nd sentence? How does homophobia caure a marked increase in the infection rate?
Here's a tip... avoid anal or oral sex without a condom.
“Young black gay men, black women and white gay men in their 30s and 40s are much more likely to be newly infected with HIV than other groups in the United States, according to a new analysis from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
This is a good example of how MERE statistics tell lies and at the same time actually demean the demographic categories they “report” on.
Because, for every single one of the demographic groups reported, the full and complete set of facts, must go to causation and not mere correlation and it would have to say:
If (1) someone is a (a)”Young black gay” man, (b)a “black woman” or (c)a “white gay man in their 30s and 40s” AND (2) “(a).................and/or (b) ....................... and/or (c)...............” [add your own behavioral ondition(s)] THEN they are “much more likely to be newly infected with HIV than” others who are someone who is either NOT (1) and/or does not (2).
Particularly, to simply say that “young black women” in general are more likely to get HIV ignores a whole raft of social circumstances, among “young black women”, that would leave a “young black woman” OUT of a high risk for HIV.
Ignoring behavior - statistics without behavioral categories - prevents truths, relative to actual cause and affect, from being told.
Maybe throwing money at this high risk, disenfranchised group will help.
