As the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 begins in the West Indies, UNICEF, in partnership with the International Cricket Council and UNAIDS has enlisted the help of the world's top cricketers to speak out about the impact of HIV and AIDS on children. Watch and hear what they have to say.
Becky Kuhn, M.D., co-founder of Global Lifeworks, debunks the following 10 myths about HIV: HIV doesn't cause AIDS; because of ARV medications, we no longer need to be concerned about HIV/AIDS; if you have HIV and are sexually active, you no longer need to practice safer sex; you can't contract HIV through oral sex; you can't get HIV from one sexual encounter; a woman cannot spread HIV to another woman by having sex with her; if you are HIV positive but your viral load is undetectable, you cannot spread HIV; AIDS can be spread by kissing, hugging, or shaking hands; if you have HIV,
Becky Kuhn, M.D., co-founder of Global Lifeworks, covers critical basic information about HIV and AIDS. HIV is a virus that causes the disease AIDS, which can be fatal. There are treatments but no cure. HIV is spread by contact between body fluids (blood, semen, vaginal fluids, and breast milk) and mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth, and genitals). It is spread by sexual contact, injection drugs users sharing needles, from mother to child during childbirth or nursing, and (early on during the epidemic) by receiving blood transfusions. You can reduce your risk by abstaining from sex before marriage, being faithful to a single partner and using a condom and/or dental dam if you are sexually active, and by never injecting drugs or by never sharing needles if you do. It can take up to six months after exposure to HIV for a person to test HIV positive; even before they test HIV positive, the infected person can spread the disease to others. A doctor can prescribe antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to prevent HIV from progressing to clinical AIDS. It is critical to take every ARV dose on schedule to avoid developing a resistant strain of HIV. If a person is HIV positive, they still need to practice safer sex to avoid spreading HIV to others and to avoid contracting a different, resistant strain of HIV.

How can we prevent or control AIDS? Short term solutions such as vaccines are not enough. What is required is control of the mind and senses by practise of devotion to Lord Krishna. This training in spiritual life has to begin at childhood itself. HH. Banu Swami Maharaj disciple of Srila Prabhupda( Founder of ISKCON ), ISKCON GBC member speaks on this for Raj TV and was telecast on World Aids Day. There was a good response from the public.
Proper nutrition can help you stay healthy this cold and flu season.
Your Immune System: The First and Best Line of Defense The recent outbreak of the Swine Flu has got millions of people in a panic. While this strain of the flu virus is particularly worrisome due to the fact that it appears to be a combination of more than one viral strain. Normally virus that affect animals are not readily transmitted to humans and visa versa, but in this case the virus we are dealing with may be a combination of more than one strain and as such is much easier transmitted to humans and from human to human. While any virus that becomes widespread is cause for concern, we need to remember that this is not the first time that such a flu outbreak has occurred and it won't be the last. Due to the nature of virus, they rear their ugly heads ever so often and are usually carried on air currents from one region of the world to others. In the past we have seen such famous flu viruses as the Asian Flu, Hong Kong Flu, and most recently the Bird Flu. Each of these various flu strains has their peak time and then fades into relative obscurity, only to return again in a few years.
