HIV transmission via breast milk?
Aug 23, 2014
If there have been no cases of HIV transmission via food because stomach acid can destroy it, how is it transferred via ingested breast milk?
Response from Mr. Glenn
Thanks for your question,
Through the mouth/throat before it reaches the stomach.
Hope this helps,
