IMMUNE SYSTEM OF HUMAN BODY
There is a police force setup in our body by mother nature and the role of that police force is done by the immune system of our body and that helps to protect the body from the foreign particles that can cause diseases to the human body.
This immune system or the police system of our body helps to maintain our health and well-being and is solely responsible for saving us from a lot of diseases.
Have you ever imagined what our life would be without this immune system?
You never take that slight cough or flu seriously right? The reason is you know that your body’s immune system will fight with it and you will be totally fine sooner rather than later but imagine if your immune system doesn’t work anymore and you become susceptible to even the smallest of the diseases.
This is the case with HIV.
WHAT IS HIV?
HIV is an abbreviation of the world( Human immunodeficiency virus) and it just simply destroys those cells that help us to fight infections. However, this is one of those diseases that don’t actually directly kill the person but actually play the supporting role.
Reason is that Hiv just simply destroys the immune system of our body and we become vulnerable to all sorts of diseases from different viruses and bacteria and chances of our recovery are almost zero.
This means that if you somehow catch HIV, there is a great chance that your days in this world are quite a few and you don’t have much time to survive on this planet.
It is such a deadly viral disease and no cure of it has still been found by human beings.
If left untreated, HIV can lead to the disease AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
The human body can’t get rid of HIV and no effective HIV cure exists. So, once you have HIV, you have it for life.
HOW HIV TRANSMITS
- UN PROTECTED SEX ( sex without condoms)
- Using the same syringes.
- Blood transfusion
- Saliva transmission
However, if someone is taking HIV medicine that helps to treat HIV and also stops transmitting it forward then those people with HIV can live long and healthy lives and prevent transmitting HIV to their sexual partners.
First identified in 1981, HIV is the cause of one of humanity’s deadliest and most persistent epidemics and no cure has still been found even in 2020.
AIDS can simply be regarded as perhaps the last stage of HIV infection that occurs when the body’s immune system is badly damaged because of the virus. From here on there is absolutely no going back and death is right around the corner to to get the patient.
In the developed countries most people with HIV do not develop AIDS because taking HIV medicine every day as prescribed stops the progression of the disease.
However, in developing countries, especially the ones in Africa that are suffering from HIV inevitably catch AIDS as well and there is no going back from them.
So, one should always make sure to have safe sex and also use sterilized objects.
