one more last question

Jan 27, 2011

thanks Rob for answering my last Q about full body scaning machine (scanning thingamajig as you called it ) after i read your answer i felt like i was born agian becouse it was such a shock to me to be told i am hiv + with that machine as i never had sex and never shared intravenous syringes,so i come back today to give you the name of that machine which is "diascan" i am hoping that you could go through this name and give one last good news

before i say WHOOHOOO thanks agian

Response from Dr. Frascino


"Diascan" or "scanning thingamajig," my assessment hasn't changed. It's a total fraud. It cannot diagnose HIV disease. There's a special place in hell reserved for scumbags who profit from scams like this. So relax Max. All is well, including you!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Which do you want first, the good news or the bad news? We'll start with the good.

Good news: you are HIV negative. Since you've never had sex or shared intravenous syringes, you have essentially no HIV-acquisition risk potential.

Bad news: if you paid money for that metal-stick body scanning thingamajig, you've been taken by a total scam. Such scanning is totally worthless. Not only can't it diagnose HIV, it can't diagnose anything else either. The only way to diagnose HIV disease is with an HIV-specific test, such as an ELISA, EIA, rapid test, etc.
