An Interesting Look at HIV

By February 21, 2011

Scientists from the 2010 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge got a look at a unique representation of HIV. Ivan Konstantinov and his team at the Visual Science Company in Moscow spent months combing through the latest research, compiling data from more than 100 papers and assembling the information into a coherent image of a 100-nanometer HIV particle. What resulted was the winning image and gave us all a very haunting look at HIV and its structure. HIV is a very complex virus that few of us get to see close up. Konstantinov's illustration allows us a peak at this amazing and deadly virus.

I have HIV and I am an engineer who works for the largest STD dating and support site POZmingle. com. I have to tell you a secret, you can choose not to believe me. But the truth is that this site has more than 1,880,000 members and about 80% members are good looking in my estimation.

Unfortunately, STD rates soar worldwide and most people with STDs don’t even know that they have them. The government should grant more money for STD education to lower the rates of STD transmission.
