3 millions Interveneous Drug Users worldwide may have HIV
« on: October 01, 2008, 07:44:55 PM »
Please pass on this information, we can not let it drop until something get done. Shall we protest World Wide.  I think so.  I will do my best please help us.

Are we truly ignoring the lives of human being. Are we behaving genocidal.  There is only 19 States in the United States that allows for Syringe Exchange Programs.  Is the War on Drug has actually gotten to the point of cruelty (I have never used this word before, but I can not help it any more) we have become Fascistic about dealing with drug users and demanding that they do as we wish they should.

Has any body ask any body to stop having straight sex, for that matter gay sex? Has any body ask us to do that? Would we be outraged?

So here it is, Lancet.  The British counterpart of our JAMA or Journal of the American Medical Association after much studies they are estimate that 1 in 5 UDI have HIV.  I think that is an outraged and we should all be ouraged if we are not.  If we do not do for these people we are all cutting us short of who we are as human being.  I am really angry, and I cann't understand why aren't you as angry as I am???.

Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report 
Public Health & Education | Study Finds 3 Million IDUs Worldwide Are HIV-Positive
[Sep 25, 2008] I  understand that only 19 of 50 states have laws that allows for Syringe Exchange Programs

Same news different location.
The estimates, based on studies, it that 1 and 5 IDUs may have HIV, http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5jVF1jHGnraGyelaqFY8Z0RCRZ6XA

People we can not let it be that way.
