Yes, good nutrition is great and maybe it will delay things a while since AIDS is not what kills you but rather prevents your body from defending itself against secondary illnesses. So theoretically if you have AIDS and live a healthy lifestyle and don't get any bugs, flu or other sickness, you could live out your natural lifespan, but we all know the likeliness of that ever happening.
Fair points.

Theoretically this is contentious as it stands. Of course you missread what the minister is trying to say: that going by this diet will delay the progression from HIV into full blown AIDS. Once you have full blown AIDS, your immune system is shot and it is just matter of time before you die. HIV -> Full blown AIDS is a process that can take anything from a few months to a few years. There is no evidence anywhere that diet will prolong this process. Diet for example does not reduce the risk of a cold, and a cold may well be one of the catalysts jump starting the HIV -> Full blown AIDS process.

In any event, such nonsensical utterings from a Health Minister should be stopped dead, and if they continue, such a person needs to be removed from her position immediately. Lives are at stake, and this consistent spluttering of nonsensical BS from her is costing lives, and putting a prolonged strain on the already ailing health system in this country. Anti Retrovirals are at this point the only chance of preventing HIV developing into full blown AIDS. And that is the only fact that should be of concern to the Health Minister regarding HIV/AIDS.

No I eat garlic before shower and eat garlic after.:)


Seriously though if you don't have the brightest electorate don't confuse them with nonsense like this. She is endangering peoples lives with this nonsense. We all know the ANC electorate has a "big chief" mentality ie. whatever the chief says the tribe will do and never question.

There's another fallacy that has spread courtesy of the government. Unprotected sex is placing you at maximum risk to contract AIDS. People having protected sex with infected people are still at risk of contracting the disease, even though the risk may be lower.

Have to disagree normal (Ie vaginal) protected sex have a scientifically proven very low incidence of infection.

Ignacio my learned friend I challenge you to present evidence of Manto saying those things CURE AIDS.
Are you proposing that what she said has any value at all?

Infections can spread through bodily fluids like blood, seamen ect so both ppl have a cut or sore on the lip or tongue, inside of the mouth, gum infection, cut on finger whole in condom (Remember the condoms STAPLED to AIDS awareness pamflets). Its scary how it can be transmitted oh dnt forget sharing needles.

Preaching abstinance will only make the situation worse...it is all about risk management. I never said it was fail safe BUT statistically the chances of the stated things happening is not that great.
