Does hiv actually destroy your immunity, ama ni propaganda tu? Do you know that HIV is controversial (as in, it may be or it may not be what it is said to be). But about the likes of syphillis and gonorrea, there is no controversy. They are real conditions. You don't come accross ads telling you that "Syphillis is real" or "Gonorrea is real" or "syphillis kills" ... because those are real conditions. You don't come accross ads telling you to go test for syphillis, because it is a real illness, and nobody has to be persuaded about its reality. [And it can definitely kill you within 10-20 years]. But with hiv, you have all sorts of media campaigns, and I wonder why you guys don't see anything odd with it.
