Kenyan Hoes May Hold Key to AIDS Vaccine

A new study by researchers from the University of Manitoba suggests that some sex workers in Kenya may have a gene that protects them from contracting the deadly HIV/AIDS virus.AA Researches studied 850 sex workers over the course of three years, some of whom had sex with as many as 30 men a day!AA By the end of the three years, most of the prositutes had contracted the virus, but 130 or so did not, despite having had unprotected sex with about 500 men each.AA The scientists believe that these women might be protected from contracting HIV by a gene known as human leukocyte that enables the immune system to recognize HIV and other similar viruses.
I can already hear ODB in heaven reacting to the news:

"Ooooh baby I like it raw, yeah baby I like it raw…."

  2. An important nutrient for people suffering from AIDS and other malignant diseases which suppress the immune system might be L-Argenine. This supplement is an amino acid that improves your health by assisting the body in getting rid of ammonia (which is a waste product) and is used to make beneficial compounds in the body such as L-glutamine, creatine, and L-proline.

    L-Argenine is extremely useful in enhancing the immune system, and it increases the size and activity of the thymus gland, which is responsible for manufacturing T lymphocytes – the much talked about T-cells, which assist the immune system.
