Abstract/ Summary

Rolling Stone called it "Sexual Cancer, America's deadliest epidemic." The New York Times Magazine said it is as relentless as leukemia and as contagious as hepatitis. And Science 83 called it a killer. The Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta calls it AIDS: Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome...which breaks down the body's immune system, leaving it open to a rash of rare and merciless diseases.
