Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Here ya go...

Question 1: No

Question 2: No

Question 3: No

Question 4: No, although a healthy, well-balanced diet helps keep your immune system running smoothly so that it can fight HIV!

Question 5: There is no cure but there is treatment. HAART or Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy is a combination of at least HIV medications that are able to keep the virus at near undetectable levels for many people.

Question 6: Yes, but not in sufficient enough quantities to cause infection.

Last Question: Yes, but for now, it is not a readily available form of treatment for HIV.

I hope this helps.

In health,
