Both of your statements are suprisingly true.

But, I'm gonna be more trusting to big news corps then you. I'll probably look it up later tonight.

Yes, if you do get AIDS, you will die from it. However, if you're immune the virus never gets the chance to cause full-blown AIDS.

Making an AIDS vacine is exceding difficult do to the many variations of the virus. A vacine which gives one high resistance (I hate to say immunity) to the more common strains has been in devolopment for some time. Im not sure on where this project stands, but Id guess it's still a ways off.

I also recall hearing something regarding new and more deadly strains being found in Africa.

It's possible that someday AIDS can be classified as a chronic rather than fatal disease, but only (expensive) drugs.

It's true that in certain areas of the world, the entire human population is in danger of being wiped out by he virus within this century.

Even worse, it could well mutate (or more strains could be be discovered). AIDS (or some form of it) will be with us for some time to come.

Goddamnit, you people are such pesimists!

Whilst yes, there is a chance large portions of the population may be wiped out, there's also a chance that there'll be a major break through in cure research and within the century, most of the world's population is cured.
Either is a possibility!

Well this will just have to work for now: http://www.google.com/search?q=AIDS+immunity

And lots of diseases can mutate.

Those are some ugly prostetutes lol. No wonder why they don't have AIDS LMAO. Hehe j/k. On the serious side now...

Sounds interesting, though im still a bit skeptical. Whether this is true or now, science is still years away from being able to use genetics to treat illness, especialy on such a large scale.

Doesn't that just sound like a pervert's dream though? Think about it "Prostitutes that are immune to AIDS!" (ie: now you can go visit the whorehouse since you'll be safe! 'course they could still be carriers).

Anyway, that's a sad and sordid subject...
