More information on the aids battle

Earlier post here

Do the people who do aids research use their head, do they have any common sense. This article by cnn makes me think not.

One group of 251 girls learned about HIV, how to properly use a condom, how to negotiate the use of a condom with a sexual partner, what constitutes a healthy relationship and pride in their gender and ethnic background.

The remaining 271 girls spent the same amount of time learning about exercise and nutrition.

The researchers followed up with the teenagers after six months and a year. The girls in the HIV class reported that they were more likely to use a condom and less likely to have had a new sex partner in the past 30 days than the girls who learned about nutrition and exercise.

freaking moron.
