Don't expect Art Deco to understand any HIV medication. He has gone on record as a non-believer in medical science.
Excuse me? I'm actually on record as quoting from the official US Centers for Disease Control (CDC). I paste directly from them verbatim, unedited, and post their links. If that's not medical science then I don't know what is.
Versus yourself, offering us biased self-serving personal opinions, dubious sources, and life-threatening advice.
Well, yah know, if guys here are to choose between you, and the US CDC guidance that I and others post on RJ, that's their decision. But to say I'm a non-believer in medical science, when credible medical science that I cite is what I'm drawing upon, is ultra wacko.
SO you didn't say " such basic medical research shouldn't be misinterpreted to be providing guidance as to how gay men should behave sexually with each other."?
If you agree with the CDC you should agree with this (it's on their web site, it from Dec. 2015):
Today, more tools than ever are available to prevent HIV. In addition to limiting your number of sexual partners, never sharing needles, and using condoms the right way every time you have sex
, you may be able to take advantage of newer medicines such as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP).There are many actions you can take to lower your risk of transmitting HIV to a partner. The more actions you take, the safer you can be.
The most important thing you can do is to take medicines to treat HIV infection (called antiretroviral therapy, or ART) the right way, every day. These medicines reduce the amount of virus (viral load) in your blood and body fluids. They can keep you healthy for many years and greatly reduce your chance of transmitting HIV to your partners if you have a very low or undetectable viral load.http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/basics/prevention.html
Is ACON not a good source either? They also recognize PrEP, ART and also condoms. (see above, I've posted it a 100 times). Note that the CDC recognizes the risks of condoms also. Are they good? Yes of course. Are they perfect, or the best? No.
The only 'ultra wacko' one here is you who disavows current medical studies. FYI the CDC doesn't do
studies. They evaluate them, to make sure of their accuracy and follow guide lines.
At one point you said I got Dr. Fauci to agree with my "BB agenda"...do you remember that? The absurdity is comical. http://www.realjock.com/article/1546/
I get it, you like what is old and proven. I disagree, there needs to be more...and there is.
Oh and your question "does it improve immune function?" Of course it does. It makes them undetectable, for some that couldn't with ART alone.
Did you read any blame from the CDC? That someone is not 'guilty' if they got HIV early, when it was GRID? But someone IS guilty if they get HIV now? No, of course not. The CDC doesn't stigmatize like YOU do. That is YOU, your guilt association. The CDC is against stigma, blame and YOU.
