People with HIV Can Live as Long as Uninfected Populations

A new study reports that young people with HIV have a life expectancy similar to that of the general population.

Researchers of the new study published in the journal PLoS One looked at the death rates of about 23,000 HIV positive people age 20 or older who were taking anti-HIV drugs. The researchers from the British Columbia Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS and the North American AIDS Cohort Collaboration on Research and Design analyzed life expectancy rates from 2000 to 2007.

They found that 20-year-old participants taking antiretrovirals had a life expectancy that increased dramatically during that time frame. From 2000 to 2002, they were expected to live about another 36 years, and in 2006 to 2007, that estimate jumped to 51 years.

Based on this data, the scientists concluded that 20-year-olds with HIV can expect to live into their 70s, which is in line with life expectancies for the general population. The HIV positive patients with lower life expectancies included those with a history of injectable drug use and those belonging to non-white racial and ethnic populations.

“I don’t think, in all honesty, that there has been an area of medicine that has undergone (as big a) revolutionary evolution over our lifetime as HIV has,” said study author Dr. Julio Montaner, the director of the B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS to The Vancouver Sun.

ALOE VERA NOURISHMENT, HEALING, AND PREVENTION OF DISEASE: Numerous scientific studies at universities and colleges have shown that the Aloe vera  plant is loaded with a myriad of nutrients (i.e. a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, amino acids) which all together help prevent all sorts of disease and to heal disease. Drinking aloe vera juice (a whole food) is one of the most nutritious things you can do for your body. Aloe vera isn't just for topical use on skin!
 
Read my popular Internet article, CHEMOTHERAPY SUCCESS WITH ALOE VERA! This is a must read article for all those diagnosed with cancer or who have a loved one who is. Just google the title to access the article. There are properties in aloe vera that greatly strengthen the immune system and help protect the immune system and healthy cells from being destroyed by chemo and radiation. The result is that (when taking aloe vera juice duing chemo/radiation) the cancer cells are destroyed while the immune system and more of the healthy cells survive. The properties in aloe vera also help chemo/radiation patients suffer a lot less side effects from the chemo/radiation treatments.

As a daily routine for good health, adults should take at least 8 oz. of aloe vera juice daily, and children should take at least 4 oz. daily. And, yes, you can give your pets this too. Pour a couple of tablespoons daily in their water dish.
