Post Contraceptive Used in Africa May Double Risk of H.I.V.
The most popular contraceptive for women in eastern and southern Africa, a hormone shot given every three months, appears to double the risk the women will become infected with H.I.V., according to a large study published Monday. And when it is used by H.I.V.-positive women, their male partners are twice as likely to become infected than if the women had used no contraception.

The findings potentially present an alarming quandary for women in Africa. Hundreds of thousands of them suffer injuries, bleeding, infections and even death in childbirth from unintended pregnancies. Finding affordable and convenient contraceptives is a pressing goal for international health authorities.

But many countries where pregnancy rates are highest are also ravaged by H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS. So the evidence suggesting that the injectable contraceptive has biological properties that may make women and men more vulnerable to H.I.V. infection is particularly troubling.

Really..... big times whoops!!

I guess now that they know this they have pulled it? Probably not..... they are probably doing a new study to see if the women are more prone to getting HIV because of sexual activity and not the actual injection (wanna bet)

Yep. That will undoubtedly happen. The only way out of this mess is an HIV vaccine. People aren't gonna stop fucking.

According to some douchebag who wrote about property, the Africans aren't making the best use of Africa as they have not "improved" the land.

It's the contention of the LLF that land can never be improved.
