Misinformation? Please help.

May 9, 2011

I found this website and now I'm getting worried. Is all of this misinformation?

It's basically saying that HIV can pass through condoms and it can live in the air and all this other stuff that I though wasn't true about HIV. Please help.


Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello George,

Yes, of course it's misinformation. But you probably already knew that, didn't you George? Of course you did. The Web site you reference is a rightwing religious zealots Web site loaded with all sorts of religious mumbo-jumbo nonsense about the evils of homosexuality, etc.

Really George, you should be a bit more discriminating about which Web sites you choose to visit. I'd suggest you stick to scientifically sound, reality-based HIV information Web sites, like, for information about HIV. Otherwise you'll be writing in saying you found Web sites claiming Obama is a Muslim born in Africa or Obama is an alien born on the former planet Pluto, or that Donald Trump has a rational mind and doesn't wear a hairpiece, etc.
