hiv patient blood is mixing with sweet like a jamoon or other if we eat that sweet hiv is spread to us or not
| Response from Dr. Young
If I understand your question, jamoon (or gulab jamoon) is a delicious sweet dish prepared in South Asia.
I think that it would be a decidedly bad idea to mix blood, especially HIV-infected blood, with the jamoon. The risks of transmission from ingesting food prepared (and presumably cooked) with HIV-infected blood isn't known, it may not be high, since heat can inactivate HIV.
