      • Jan 14 2013: HIV is not your worst enemy. The top 11 causes for an equally lethal immune system weekness include Chronic Stress, Improper Diet, Lack of Rest, Lack of Exercise, Obeisity, Alcohol Abuse, Smoking, Chemical/UV Exposure, (legal) Drugs, No Hygiene, and Dehydration. These are far more common than a virus.

        The temporary condition called AIDS is not about HIV which requires billions of dollars to make Big Pharma rich. It's more about lifestyle... but not just sexual activity, needles and blood transfusion.
