    interesting article. Not sure how wide of a group they were looking at.
    The HIV+ folks I have met, look great and they are in their 40's.
    Now there might be a moment when it all catches up to the body. 20+ years of fending of a disease will take it's toll one would think.

    As the article mentions its probably an even stronger message for guys being treated for HIV to take excellent care of themselves, exercise, eat good food and rest properly.

    I'm sure we're coming to a point where we will be able to relegate HIV infection from a chronic, but manageable illness to something rare, but treatable.
