Unlike any other bodily fluid, semen is extremely conducive to infecting and spreading the HIV virus. Even blood does not contain the necessary enhancer that semen uniquely carries. The enhancer is none other than prostatic acid phosphatase-which enhances the spread of HIV by 100,000 fold.
There are at least 60 million people worldwide that have the deadly HIV strain. It has caused at least 25 million deaths since its discovery in 1981.
In Africa, the notorious hotbed of HIV/AIDS, 60% of newly infected people are women states this source. Research has long since known that there are at least 900 proteins in semen alone and that males are the chief contributor to the widespread infection rate. At first it was thought to be a “homosexual male” disease. When that was ruled out, and heterosexual men and women were getting the virus at alarming rates as well, more research was done to find the root cause of what was the primary enhancer in the epidemic. Now it finally discovered-males are to blame as they have the protein prostatic acid phosphatase found only in semen, which can also mutate the HIV strain and change its structure.
T cells are paralyzed by prostatic acid phosphatase and are rendered helpless as the HIV moves throughout the person’s system. Curious, researchers tested human tonsil cells and discovered that in the presence of semen, far fewer HIV particles had to present to infect the person. In other words, the myth that oral sex is safer than vaginal/anal sex is not true.
Considering the fact that 3 out of the 4 newly infected people in the world are transmitting HIV through sexually intercourse,this research has brought HIV/AIDS prevention and education to a whole new level. This same research indicates that HIV is both unique and distinct when transmitted through semen versus blood or any other bodily fluid.
Hopefully this new information will usher in added insight into how a possible HIV vaccine can be developed. Thus far, the spread of HIV has taken on a tragic humanitarian affect on people worldwide. It continues to choke every aspect of society, including politics, social reforms, education, crime, the economy, religion, and especially the healthcare industry. Even if one is blessed not to be infected with the HIV virus, everyone pays a price for this catastrophic viral monster.
