    Default CDC Pushing To Make HIV Testing Routine (ame-g4281)

    August 11, 2008

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have issued a report, revealing that only 40% of adults in the U.S. have been tested for HIV.  This has resulted in a major push to have more people tested.......Washington (dbTechno) - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have issued a report, revealing that only 40% of adults in the U.S. have been tested for HIV. This has resulted in a major push to have more people tested.

    The government report found that in 2006, just 40.4% of adults in the U.S. between the ages of 18 to 64-years old were tested for HIV.

    This comes after the CDC already made it clear in a recent report that more Americans are being infected with the AIDS virus, caused by HIV.

    Their recent report showcased that their prediction of 40,000 new AIDS infections each year in the U.S. was far below the actual numbers.

    The CDC is pushing to make an HIV test a standard test done during a doctor?s visit. This could push more people to making it a routine to get tested.

    33 million people around the world are infected with AIDS, with more than 25 million dying from it.

    This is very scary, but it also makes me wonder ... if lots of people with no risk factors started testing positive, wouldn t people start to realize what a crock the tests are ...
