By: Lulu E-mail: lulu237@hotmail.com AIDS: Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome HIV and Aids affect more than roughly thirty million people worldwide.

This question dealing with how HIV survives in the immune system is of critical importance, not only in the search for a cure for the virus and its inevitable syndrome, AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), but also so that over 500,000 Americans already infected with the virus could be saved.

Kroeger's "AIDS and the Girl Next Door" Most people are aware of AIDS, have knowledge of what causes it, and even realize the ways to avoid infection and spread of the virus.

The case with ‘the girl ...

Risks in the example: the lottery and the AIDS cure If the average person on the street were presented with the case of spending one's life savings on a lottery ticket and losing or spending the same sum on a false hunch regarding an AIDS cure, he or she would probably come up with several answers. For the most part though, all the answers would be consistent with one idea: the AIDS cure is simply "worth" more and thus ...
