Quick Question

Feb 7, 2007

Is it true that you have to drink at least a gallon of saliva to have a chase of catching AIDS? So is it possible to catch AIDS by sharing food or knives and forks with an infected person?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Why do you ask? Do your utensils have more than a gallon of spit on them?

No, silly boy, you cannot contract HIV/AIDS from cutlery or saliva!

Dr. Bob
