Does this mean that you need to stop kissing? Of course not. Kisses - an important part of sensual pleasures, and most people are not ready to relinquish them. But as far as dangerous? Is there a real risk of infection with the kiss? Let us look at the statistics. Joined studied in detail and only one case where the contamination occurred ... No, not with the kiss, but with bite. In doing so, the bite was to the blood and mouth bites were also visible blood. Thus, in the unanimous opinion of specialists Center for disease control USA - one of the most respected institutions in the world sanitary-and-epidemiological institution - the contamination occurred not through saliva and blood.
In saliva the virus is present in very low concentrations, insufficient for infection. Hundreds of thousands of registered cases of HIV transmission, in which was installed with an accuracy of the source of infection. If the saliva was a real risk, among those hundreds of thousands would be a significant proportion of people with HIV when people cough, sneeze, kiss. But 15 years of experience epidemiologists showed that the risk of HIV infection is virtually non-existent. Saliva can be dangerous only if it is visible blood.
This suggests two important conclusions. The first - a purely practical: if the lips and mouth you do not damage kissed to health. If you have cracks ulcers or bleeding gums, they should be treated, but have not yet been held - not kiss " suction" in the mouth and be careful with oral sex. You can not fear to share tender "shallow" kiss, fondle his lips and tongue neck, chest, shoulders lover (and let let your imagination).
The second conclusion was that the world people have very naivety desire to continue to live the way they lived before, before the AIDS epidemic. Assuming that can be infected with anything - through kissing, mosquito bites, door handle - then it will turn out that all doomed and there is no need to change their own behavior. Much easier to periodically run into hysteria, while continuing to rely on the maybe, than soberly recognize that risk can be significantly reduced.
