if somebody who is cooking in your house for last 10 yrs has recently been diagnosed hiv , do u think the other people who ate that food can be at a risk. sometimes the victim would cut his finger while chopping veggies & cook with the same hand. he said he was operated for appendix 10 yrs ago before he started working at our place & had blood transfusion out there.

HIV is not transmitted by casual contact, such as that which you describe in your question. Period.
