Aids Essay 10

1254 words - 6 pages

AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. AIDS is caused
by the

HIV virus, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. Most of the people get
the HIV virus

by having sexual intercourse with an infected person, sharing syringes
(when using

drugs or in cheap hospitals) with an infected person, some are also
born with the

disease or the babies drink the breast milk of an infected woman. Once
a body is

infected by the HIV virus, the human body produces antibodies to fight
the virus. A

blood test can reveal if someone has the HIV disease or not, if he or
she has the

disease, then he or she is HIV-positive. Being HIV-positive is not the
same as having

AIDS, the ...view middle of the document...

AIDS affects every person differently,
some people die

soon after infection, some live normally for many years after
"officially" having

AIDS. Some HIV-positive people also stay healthy for many years even
without

taking anti-HIV medications. Right now there is no cure for AIDS but
scientists are

working very hard to produce an affordable cure for AIDS. There are
drugs available

that can slow down the damage done to the immune system through the
HIV virus.

But for the moment there is no way to get all of the HIV out of the
body. There are

drugs which when taken can either prevent or treat opportunistic
infections, these

drugs work in most cases very well. The newer, stronger anti-HIV drugs
helped

reduce the rates of most of the opportunistic infections, however,
some are still very

difficult to treat.

2) The HIV disease was thought to have originated from an African
native who

received a bloody wound while preparing a chimpanzee carrying a
similar virus (SIV),

this is the so called "cut hunter theory" but recent research proves
that the origin of

HIV and AIDS could have never happened this way. A recent theory was
that the

spread was due to accidental vaccination contaminations and subsequent
transmission

to African villagers, the oral polio vaccine was on top of the suspect
list since the

vaccine was partially derived from growing live polio viruses in
monkey kidneys that

have historically proven to be contaminated with cancer viruses such
as SV40 - the

40th monkey virus ever discovered - currently linked to widespread
cancer in humans

but this theory could have also never been true due to the fact that
chimpanzees

were not proven to have been used during the manufacture of this
vaccine. Lately Dr.

Horowitz discovered scientific documents and contracts from the
National Institute of

Health proving that chimpanzees, contaminated with numerous viruses,
were used to

produce hundreds of hepatitis B vaccine doses administered to central
black Africans

and homosexual men in New York City at precisely the time other
scientists claim the

outbreak of HIV "punctuated event" occurred, which was between the
1950s- early

1960s.

3) A study from 2001 showed that on the whole world there are 42
million people

up to 49 years old living with AIDS; 37.1 million are adults between
15-49 years of

age and out of that group 18.5 million are women. 3 million children
up to 14 years of

age are also living with HIV/AIDS; all together there are 14 million
AIDS orphans

up to 14 years of age living; there has been 3 million deaths from
people up to...
