Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is a disease of the human immune system caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The illness interferes with the immune system, making people with AIDS much more likely to get infections, including opportunistic infections and tumors that do not usually affect people with working immune systems.
Estimated % of new AIDS diagnoses in 2009 by race
Black/African American: 47.9%
Other: the remainder
Populations around the world (CDC numbers)
West Europe 820k
South/Southwest Asia 4.1M
Subsaharan Africa 22.5M
CDC Estimated Number of Diagnoses of HIV Infection in the US, 2009
-Male-to-male sexual contact: 53%
-Injection drug use: 12%
-Male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use: 4%
-Heterosexual contact with a person known to have, or to be at high risk for, HIV infection. 31%
-Hemophilia, blood transfusion, perinatal exposure, and risk not reported or not identified: 76 people
Perinatal: 131 people
AIDS can affect everyone but avoid high risks:
-Sex in subsaharan Africa
-Male to male sex
-Introv. drug user
-Hetro Sex with people who have male to male sex or drug use
A very dangerous disease that currently can't be cured. It will destroy your immune system until even a cold can kill you.
Contrary to what most of these homophobic twelve-year-olds added as the definition, AIDS can be aquired through any form of sex with a carrier. In fact, you don't even have to have sex. Just sharing blood or drinking breastmilk (This applies to everyone, not just babies) can give you AIDS.
Homophobic Middle Schoolers should learn a little bit more about AIDS before they add some retarded definition to Urban Dictionary.
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, caused by the retrovirus HIV. Transmitted by exposure to contaminated body fluids, such as blood and semen.
That woman has AIDS.

A lab created disease, originally created to demolish the gays and black americans, by the government. No one wants to admit this, because we are ALL in denial. How do you think AIDS, just came out of "no where"? It didn't. Think about it.
Highest Rates of HIV/AIDS are African-Americans (2008)
Highest Rates of HIV/AIDS are gays. (1988)
AIDS is a virus that was released to the public to control population from getting out of hand. The United Stated government then tried to blame it on a bunch of gays, simply because the government doesn't like them.
When the USA govemnment feels like they've killed enough people, they will release the vaccine that was created around the same time the AIDS virus was.
Don't blindly follow what your leaders say. AIDS is not a natural virus. They wanted to kill a bunch of people on PURPOSE. It didn't start in Africa, it didn't start with homosexuals.
Anally Injected Death Sentence.
A rather cruel parody of Aquired Immune Difficiency Syndrome.
"AIDS is a terrible disease to make fun of."
A virus that was released to the public as means of population control; regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexual preference or lifestyle. Very clever indeed.
In a clever attempt to blame the 'morally corrupt' for the spread of <B>AIDS</B> which would lead to a series of phobias, the medical industry further benefits from high-priced treatments, further sucking the income out of the wallets of those inhabiting planet earth.
Okay, everyone else just defined what AIDS is, so I won't bother. Instead, I'll take this time to debunk the ignorant rumors about AIDS.more...
Okay, first of all, you can't get AIDS from touching any one's blood. You only get it from having the blood of someone infected with AIDS enter your system somehow. The same is true for semen and breast milk.
I know it sounds retarded, but there actually are people who don't know this, like AIDS just magically generates when blood touches the air or something, like this one time when I was fifteen and I broke this kid's nose in a fight that he and his friends instigated and he wiped his blood on me and said, "I hope you gets AIDS." True story, the kid was a fucking dumbass.
Second, AIDS was not invented by the government for "population control," you fucking clod, and no, they aren't keeping a secret cure from the public. Just because they said it on Chappelle's Show, that doesn't make it true.
The most widely accepted theory of the origin of AIDS is that somebody fucked an ape or a monkey, then spread it to other humans. This may sound weird to you, but trust me, bestiality is far more common than you can possibly imagine.
Third, AIDS does not only infect gay men. Straight people, man or woman, can get it too, through any kind of sex, not just anal. It can be transmitted through oral sex, vaginal sex, or any other kind of sex. And just because you don't cum, that doesn't mean your safe.
You cannot get A...
