HIV Gel media hype or is it something else?

In a recent news story, there is some report that a developing product which is an anti hiv gel can cut infection rates by 30 to 50 percent.

Now at first glance that may seem like welcome news, but in reality how effective is this, I mean if you look at the idea then it is sort of like contraception, only no where near as effective, on top of that there are no scientific studies that support this method which leaves many people with a puzzled look on their faces, wondering how does this really help?

Many people think it really does not help much at all…

In one other video the presentation that “Men” were the cause of all the problems, seems to be well just plain Stupid, after all this time and after all the education efforts that have been made to educate the public about HIV and we have Bobble headed blonds on National TV, spouting off about how Women, were the victims and it was all the mans fault, because they went to bad places, and did bad things, It was sort of insulting to medical professionals and laymen alike, pardon the pun, but there are multiple vectors in involved and it has been that was for more than 20 years, yet on CBS they have a video that pits men against women.

This gel may or may not be effective, and it could actually be dangerous, imagine someone that was using this then later became infected, what happens then?

Well they are more likely to have a virus that is already resistant, to the virus, this is bad, very bad, and if know someone that is thinking about using this, dont use this stuff, until real science can do some research to see if this stuff is safe, I personally believe this is a very poorly thought out idea and should never be offered in the US.

This is one of the worst ideas that I have ever seen it flys in the face of conventional science, and it is likely to kill far more people than it ever protects.
