quick qustion about being Unhealthy

Jan 12, 2007

Hey Dr. Bob, this should be quick. would unhealthy person ie: bad diet, lack of exercise, inadequate rest, and stressful lifestyle, take longer to produce antibodies than healthy individuals?

Thanks Dr. BOB, Tim

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Tim,

Nope! The immune system doesn't work that way. Now, about that unhealthy lifestyle of yours, even though it won't affect your HIV test results, it's still "unhealthy." How about some New Year's resolutions???

Don't squander your health! Once it's gone, you may not be able to get it back!

Be well. Be healthy.

Dr. Bob

bonjour docteur,est ce que je me fait des films?
