Does Stress lead to AIDS?
Aug 13, 2001

Doctor I read in a famous South Indian magazine that AIDS is transmitted due to radiations and stress eg. computer and telivision radiations. Is that true?

Response from Dr. Young

This is very frustrating to hear. AIDS is caused by infection with the virus HIV. Period.

The promotion of the idea that anything other that HIV causes AIDS is irresponsible and leads people to stop effective medications or prevent access to health care.
