Caroline Said:Apparently there's some 'myth' that the AIDS epidemic is the deadliest disease outbreak in US history?
We Answered:AIDS actually is not THAT common at all (in the US)... YET is soooo tramatic because 1. you die from it 2. it is preventable. Cancer is the leading cause of death in the world... but many types of cancer have no prevention (aside from people smoking)... AIDS affects the body and has psychological consequences... many people w/ aids could have prevented it... (not all but many) this can cause depression and suicide... Also if you were given a choice between dying from AIDS or Cancer... many would pic cancer because there is such a negative cloud around AIDS... AIDS is one of the LEAST common STD's...
