God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensées of a Catholic priest

Reading day…

There are so many articles and blogs about HIV and AIDS that one could read for days without getting through all of them. Here is a selection of what caught my eyes in the last days:

Silver has centuries of history as a disinfectant, but with irregular results. However, as a nano particle, which is a minuscule cluster of atoms synthesized by scientists, the element appears to be more reliably potent against pathogens, and it does not cause inflammation. When added to condoms, microscopic nano particles of silver may create a powerful safety net against HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), the Canadian National Post reported. An interesting research and more about this possibility you can read here.
