Sixty eight years ago Banting and Best won the Nobel Prize in Medicine and it was declared that diabetes was eliminated as a human disease because we knew insulin deficience was the root cause. Sixty eight years later we should realize how little we understand.

25 yrs ago,,, I remember and I remember the evangelicals saying that this was God's wrath on the homosexuals. I guess God has got it in for all of us.

NOT ONLY DO THESE PEOPLE LOVE BUSH, THEY LOVE ALL THE KILLING OF THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE IN IRAQ. IF YOU ARE PART OF THESE PEOPLE, MAY GOD HELP YOUR SOLE.

FOR THOUGHT: JESUS ISNT PART OF THE WHITEHOUSE STAFF, IF HE WERE, THEY WOULD HAVE KILLED HIM AND ATE HIM BY NOW.

Homosexuals started the disease. It is a gay disease. Non gays started getting it from either blood transfusions or bad needles or having sex with someone that has AIDS. But homo's started it on it's path.

AIDS is the ideal plague. Because rather than devise any adequate prevention and treatment, we just argue about who caused it.

I do have my facts straight. Are you afraid to admit it? Gay men in San Francisco are the first in the USA to come down with it in 1981.
It might of originated in Africa thru the slaughter of monkeys. But gay men started it here.
The liberals of America want us to think it is not a gay disease but it is.

I'm not afraid to admit anything. I do a lot of work for aids in Africa through my university and know the topic quite well. You said, "The liberals of America want us to think it is not a gay disease but it is" - that doesn't make sense for a lot of reasons, but if you haven't figured it out yet, you probably never will. If you understand the monkey theory you'll see that gays were just as much a victim to the disease as any other group. The first recorded case of infection was in 1959 and had been spreading pretty much 'under the radar' since then, mistaken for other illnesses. The notion of it being a 'gay disease' is simply a social one that stems from homophobia. Non-gay individuals were also found with the disease during the initial onset in the states, but the media dramatized the findings in gays. This led to large testing of that particular group more than any other, and so more cases were subsequently found among them. The fact is that the origin of aids is impossible to know, not for you to say, and is too complex pandemicly to be blamed on a single group. More importantly, for you to call a global pandemic of this scale a 'gay disease', which much more dramatically affects (and has been affecting for a much longer period of time) the heterosexual African world, simply because gays were among the first to contract it solely in your country, makes you very narcissistic.

Wow, you are pretty uneducated. The "non gays that you speak about...
Are they the same "non-gay men" that have sex with men and then go home and have sex with their wife or girlfriend? Maybe these so-called "non gay men" are to blame? Just a thought, Tamara.
AIDS affects everyone. Anyone that's having unprotected sex is at risk.
Tamara, assuming you are straight and in a relationship, can you trust your partner 100% that he is only having sex with you? You know the statistics on cheating, right?
Get educated, it just might save your life.

The next thing we know you will be telling us that man did not originate from monkeys. What do the "even jellies" profess? Intelligent design? Yeh, right!

I would be curious to know if Tamara is a "product" of the 80's? I grew up in the 80's and at the time we were told over and over it was a gay disease. However, I've had 20 some years to lear about this disease and we now know that is NOT the case!

You liberals just don't want to admit it do you. Gays started AIDS in the USA. And I also say NO MORE MONEY ON AIDS.
If lung cancer doesn't deserve more money for research then AIDS certainly doesn't. AIDS research gets more money then all diseases combined.

And you know it is such a waste because they will never find a cure. And do you know why they will never find a cure???
