Where do you come up with this stuff??

Jan 22, 2006


I was just wondering a few things... In all of the estimates you give, on how many people are living with HIV/AIDS, in America and Worldwide, you often say that 25% of these people don't even know they have it. How can you possibly use them in those figures?. If they are not confirmed then who knows if they really have it? and how can 25% be estimated then?

Just curious, an avid reader.

Response from Dr. Frascino


These are estimated statistics based on large epidemiological studies.

I really don't make this stuff up. Honest.

Thanks for tuning into the forum.
