New Evidence Shows HIV Is Rarely Spread Heterosexually

In the developing world, the virus has been around for at least 65 years because HIV is rarely transmitted heterosexually. Research studying the wives of infected hemophiliacs showed that an HIV-positive person requires more than 1,000 unprotected sexual contacts with an HIV-negative person of the opposite sex to transmit the virus just once. In another surprise study, published in the Lancet, 1997, 349:851-2, French doctors at the Cochin-Port Royal Hospital in Paris analyzed the risk of married couples who want to conceive a baby when the man is HIV-positive. Their findings are in line with infection rates of 1 per 1,000 unprotected sex acts among regular heterosexual couples.

According to this published research, it would take about seven years for an HIV-infected heterosexual who has sex 2-3 times a week to infect another person with HIV! This practically means that it would take 2,739 years of daily unprotected sex for HIV-infected men in one million partners to infect all female partners who test HIV-positive (even if HIV tests were 100% positive). reliable, which are not).

How do you get AIDS?

However, the situation is different with respect to infected pregnant women. A baby is directly and constantly exposed to the mother’s blood for a period of 9 months. During this period, the virus has a 50% chance of being transmitted to the baby. Retroviruses survive when they reach a new host prenatally (passed from mother to child). This way of transmitting a virus is at least 500 times more efficient than sexual transmission. (Blood transfusion is another obvious way to contract the virus)

Unlike the situation in wealthy nations, HIV in Third World countries is distributed equally between both sexes, which means that it must have been transmitted from mother to child for many centuries. If HIV had been a deadly killer virus, the babies of infected mothers would obviously have been born deformed, miscarried or died, because newborn babies have not yet developed adequate immunity to defend themselves against a killer virus. Even if they somehow managed to survive, they could only last a maximum of two years, the latency period that infected babies are given before they develop AIDS. The spread of the virus would have been automatically stopped by destroying all new babies that were infected by their mothers.

Due to the low rates of homosexuality in developing countries, the prenatal route of transmission has been their only efficient way (50 percent chance) of transmitting HIV to new generations. Adult girls who become mothers would again have a 50 percent chance of transmitting the virus to their children. Therefore, in Africa alone, HIV must have existed for many generations before it could infect 6 to 8 million people. The more recent argument that increased condom use in some African nations helped reduce the infection rate is unconvincing, since the main route of HIV infection in Africa is from mother to child.

Who gets AIDS?

The situation is very different in the industrialized world where HIV is mainly transmitted through different routes. The most susceptible groups are very active homosexuals, heroin addicts who share needles, and hemophiliacs who receive transfusions. They represent the main and easiest routes through which disease-causing microbes can be transmitted to other people who share a common risk factor: immunodeficiency. In other words, the groups in society where HIV is commonly present among its members are also the groups with the highest health risks and, therefore, the most likely to produce AIDS symptoms. Still, the more concentrated occurrence of HIV among health risk groups cannot be blamed for causing AIDS disease, any more than elevated cholesterol levels can be blamed for causing heart disease. These are mother correlations. Another problem is that gay men, drug users, and hemophiliacs who are exposed to semen, drugs, blood transfusions, hepatitis, Epstein Barr virus, and many other diseases or factors known to cause biological false positives in HIV tests represent the least reliable. groups in society to demonstrate the real presence of HIV.

As prophesied 13 years ago, AIDS has invaded the heterosexual community, or so it seems. Since cervical cancer and other diseases of women have more recently been renamed AIDS diseases, AIDS seems to have affected the female population. However, the majority of AIDS patients are still men.

Anything and everything that heavily abuses the body and depletes the immune system should be held responsible for causing disease, regardless of whether it is a stroke, cancer, or AIDS disease. Emotional stress, insufficient nutrition, dehydration, lack of sleep, alcohol, cigarettes, antibiotics, hard drugs, excessive sexual activity, etc., can damage the immune system. A dormant piece of viral material like HIV, on the other hand, can do no harm in a healthy body.

Those who are continually exposed to immunological risk factors are also more susceptible to developing Acquired Human Immunodeficiency Syndrome. Someone may argue: “What happens to an innocent baby who is infected with HIV by her parents and dies of pneumonia? Isn’t that AIDS?” The fact is that at least as many children die of pneumonia with or without HIV, and it does not significantly influence disease outcome whether they had prior contact with HIV or not. However, what can make a big difference is how pneumonia is treated.
