The craziest myth from way back in the day, when this thing started: You can catch HIV from eating from a person's plate, or drinking from their glass -- and 30 years later, it still exists.

And they don't want to share the towels and all this stuff -- people being rejected by family and loved ones, and at workplaces, because of a disease.
