AIDS/HIV vs HPV reality check

AIDS/HIV

–          Virus

–          Treatable

–          Passible through body fluids

–          Preventable from being passed on from mother to child

–          Reportable illness

–          Does not kill you directly but what it allows to come into your body does

  • Cancers
  • Colds
  • Other common illness that a “normal” immune system could fight off

–          Testing available for both MEN and women

–          Blood banks screen for this virus from donors

–          Testing can and is readily free in many locations

–          Education is done by the state and encouraged by the government

–          It is spoken about

 

HPV

–          Virus

–          Not treatable

–          Not reportable

–          Nothing to prevent mothers from transmitting this to children

–          Vaccine that only protects you against 2  strands related to cancer (there are over 40  that we know of

–          No FDA approved testing for men

–          Testing for women is a pap smear (planned parenthood will work with you if you don’t have insurance)

–          Blood banks do not screen for this virus

–          Doesn’t directly kill you but what is causes can

  • Cancer(S)
  • New research is looking into other related illness too that may be linked to HPV

–          transmitted through kissing

–          80% of us have HPV and that is why they do not consider it a reportable illness.

Questions? Good. Start asking.

Since my CNN interview a few things have happened. First my complete total and utter thanks goes out to the staff of NotiMujer, CNN, and Rod for having us. Second I would like to thank everyone that has seen the interview either via youtube or live and to all of the women that emailed me thank you.

When you do this kind of work without especially in the beginning, with no funding, and no laws backing you up on this being a reportable illness it is hard. It takes a toll when you see that the CDC considers STIs like syphilis, goneria reportable yet both are treatable and curable in most cases but not HPV that says with you forever.

Many people brush off this virus as not serious. I have had people with it not even consider it a serious matter because so many people are carriers. But here is the reality and this is going to be the hardest thing I probably will do to date in my life. (It is one thing to know something and another to acknowledge it)

So because the numbers are so great it should be ignored and not spoken about? If anything we should be focusing on stopping the spread more than ever. Educating people on it. Making it reportable that we can have one less person and not one more because of the negligence of  those that know they have it and chose not to say anything.

Make testing available for men. The FDA approved DNA testing for men why are they putting it into practice for any of us?

This is hard because when the average Joe hears AIDS or HIV we know it’s serious and take it as such to the point that “have you gotten tested?” seems to only bring that illness to mind and not  syphilis, goneria, chlamydia, or other STIs/STDs.

We need to educate. We need to stand up for our health and that starts with you. The same way this started with me.

Your information is rather limited as to the current knowledge of the scope of HPV involvement in the development of cancer(s) and is the same outdated material sent out when the vaccine was pre-maturely released. I have spent two years reviewing HPV and if you are interested I can send a synopsis of my finding to you.

Sure send it away and I will look it over. But our information is’t based on what Gardasil has and is less outdated than most other STD realted organizations

I am truly glad to glance at this weblog posts which contains lots of helpful facts, thanks for providing these kinds of
statistics.

I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site
owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will
be a lot more useful than ever before.

Thank you all for your comments
