Might wipe out HIV but would love to know the cancer rates it causes. Anything described as a 'radiation bomb' probably has a side effect or two. The issue with treatment for serious medical conditions is balancing side effects of the medication to its benefit.
Anyway, this is from the Daily Mail which is not really known for accurate information. I'm not sure if I had HIV that this would my source for help. When you google this, Wikipedia describes the Daily Mail as a British 'tabloid'.
I'm all for sound medical treatment but one must use reliable information to help them figure out the best approach.
Luck to all who suffer and prayers that good treatments are coming.
SM,the trouble is that HIV rates are rising everyday & what is so alarming is that it's between the ages of 15 to 25,the so called younger generation & in conservative countries aswell.This is why a vaccine or cure is essential.The biggest mistake scientists ever made was to say the ARV therapy was the magic bullet & that HIV was no longer a serious illness,this is when people started becoming complacent & HIV rates shot through the roof.I have 3 teenagers & i worry for them everyday.
Brown case was a fluke, he was be treated leukemia. Read the doctors reply, he stated he would not attempt to do that on any person with HIV to try eliminate HIV because the outcome would more that likely be death. .
I realize this is a prevention forum but people aren't getting the message,HIV rates in most countries are going up incredibly even here in Australia so the safe sex message is not getting through we need to look at vaccines & cures.
This is a journal, not the Prevention forum. We understand that it shows up in the Recent Activity sidebar in HIV Prevention, but that doesn't mean it's being posted in the forum itself. If I created a journal about MS or Lyme Disease, for example, it would still appear in the sidebar of many different communities, including HIV Prevention, as I am a member of that community.
Whether or not this particular thing ends up working - well, only time will tell. The study is reported by many media outlets, including some mainstream outlets. It's still very much in early phases of the study, and discussion is a good thing, but it would still have years and years to go before anything is close to proven.
