WASHINGTON — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week launched a new campaign called “Start Talking, Stop HIV,” that encourages gay and bi men to talk with their sexual partners about HIV risk and prevention strategies.

Although research suggests that open communication leads to behaviors that can help reduce risk, such as HIV testing and status disclosure, studies have found that important discussions about HIV do not occur within many relationships.

“Given the range of HIV prevention options available today, talking about HIV prevention has never been more important for gay and bisexual men,” said Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention. “Only after having open and honest conversations can partners make informed choices about which strategies will work for them. Start Talking. Stop HIV. urges gay and bisexual men to break the silence and take control of their health.”

Men who have sex with men (MSM) — including those who inject drugs — continue to be the group most severely affected by HIV in the United States, accounting for more than half (57 percent) of the 1.1 million people living with HIV and approximately two-thirds (66 percent) of all new HIV infections each year. Young (ages 13-24) MSM, especially young black MSM, are at particularly high risk for HIV. Despite this heavy burden, a recent CDC study of gay and bisexual men in 20 cities found that 37 percent did not know the HIV status of their last male partner.

The Start Talking. Stop HIV. campaign website features information and resources as well as practical tips for starting conversations about safe sex and HIV. The campaign will also be featured at Pride events and other community activities across the country.

  • AMBUSH CURES HIV/AIDS

    Apostle Shada Mishe

    Sir / Madam,
    For the past 12 years I have been studying and researching Ambush, a Palm plant extract that is effective in curing HIV.

    Name of Plant; Palm

    Name of ingredient: Ambush

    Molecular weight 640 (similar to the sequisulfides)

    Where found: In and around the areas of South Florida where uranium waste was dumped in the 1920's from the nuclear programme that has now leaked out into the water system. A specie of the PALM plant has picked up this waste to be the valuable AMBUSH.

    Chemical compd; Uranium isotope (cus.n) Grayish white soft metallic compound NOT found in chemistry books.

    Uses: Antiviral DRUG..Ambush

    Found to "KILL" the HIV virus when given in a dose of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days at a known concentration.

    Mode of action.. Ambush kills the HIV virus by causing the viral shell to rupture . In the lymph system Ambush produces "natural radioactivity" that "kills" the virus that 'hides' in the lymph system . This crosses the blood-brain barrier since the 'patients' claim that they are able to see,hear and think more clearly after taking Ambush.

    Viral Loads…This decreases from 100,000 to 'undetectable' in 21 days….. but I have had patients VL go to 'undetectable ' in 5 days.

    SIDE EFFECTS / EFFECTS
    1. After 5 to 7 days of treatment, patients MAY complain of HEADACHES.
    2. After 5 to 7 days male patients experience an increase in erection.
    3. Stool becomes soft and REGULAR
    4. Patients c/o being WARM in the trunk area mainly at night when lying down.

    Toxicology……Before administering to any person a complete toxicological analysis was done to include, arsenic, barbiturates and NO KNOWN poisons or harmful substances to mankind were found.

    Systems/Organs

    Skin…becomes clean, smooth and free of eczema or other say they have small eczema patches in the first week that go away by the third week.

    Excretion
    Since this is a very LARGE molecule it is excreted relatively unchanged via urine and feces.

    SEROREVERSION
    After 149 days the patents revert to being HIV NEGATIVE after finishing a course in Ambush hence no one goes public to say they WERE HIV positive.
    Pharmacology of Ambush on the GUT of an end stage AIDS person.

    It is known that late stage AIDS patients posses a high level of the virus in the GUT which should include the entire GI tract from stomach to rectum. Here the virus is found in the lining and this is difficult for ARV's because these are the areas needed by the ARV's to enter the blood supply. There is not a high enough blood level returning back to the stomach lining hence the virus remains in high concentration.

    This causes the person's appetite to decrease which causes a spiraling downhill of the body.

    When Ambush is taken in the liquid form, it is slightly basic and forms a stable compound in the acidic stomach.The Ambush compound is close to the stomach lining to exert the "natural radioactivity" effect which kills the virus in the stomach. Here the entire mid section feels very warm and sometimes feverish. The infected stomach lining with the dead areas is then passed out as a black slime in the stool. This usually happens about day 4 while on an Ambush regime of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days, wherein the person has a large bowel movement.

    After the bowel movement, the person becomes extremely hungry and eats TWO to THREE times a normal serving. Here I usually recommend cornmeal porridge with butter or cooking oil as a prevention against malnutrition and add a daily multivitamin. By day 10 the stomach has recovered and the person eats normally.

    THE CHALLENGE

    The challenge is to find a Virologist, or Biologist of HIV Researcher who is willing to put some Ambush in a Human culture medium infected with the HIV virus, incubate with proper controls and report their findings to the world.

  • We need more HIV/AIDs education and information. It's very important!!
    The number of members on the largest HIV/AIDs dating&support site === http://www.PositiveChat.com (if I spell the site correctly) has reached 731,000 members.
    OMG! Why so many guys and girls on the site are very sexy? Why so many people are infected by HIV/AIDs? There is no doubt that we need protected sex.

  • Well said. LOVE your profile pic. ;-)

  • Thanks for this piece on an important awareness campaign.
