Response from Dr. Frascino


"Saliva and a 'skeck' of blood?????" Hmmm . . . . That's a quantity I have no idea how to measure! However, since it arrived in just a speck of saliva from a spittle-prone nurse, I'm quite certain your HIV risk is nonexistent.

Thank you for your donation ( It's urgently needed and warmly appreciated. Your generosity and compassion will yield copious quantities of excellent cosmic karma for your health and happiness.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
