If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
Hello everyone, Can you get HIV through eating food which has been prepared in a street vendor and the person who was preparing it (could be HIV positive) cut themselves and the blood drips into the food and approximately a person eats it after 30seconds to 1 minute? I know saliva is a protection against HIV but what happens if you swallow?
And this cut or blood could have been dripping from a scissor while cutting chicken approximately 30 seconds before and fallen into the gravy of the dish. IS THERE ANY RISK, even if it is minimal through ingestion? or it is IMPOSSIBLE no matter what condition you have.
ah, over here a vendor food is a large commotion. Many people say that once a fruit street vendor once while preparing his food cut himself while cutting a pineapple (hiv+) and immediately after since the person did not see this occured, after educating myself on HIV tranmission like you told me to do so..I just wanted to confirm that although there is FRESH Blood in your food and you even eat it 30 seconds after, can you get HIV.
I'm just trying to be A person trying to educate himself
