> If it is TB, it shall be detected easily today since thousands of people take numerous tests in different hospitals nationwide. Well, I didn't mean that it is TB. Rather, if peoples' CD4 (helper) T cell levels get very low, and so much TB is around, I'm pretty sure many should get TB as an additional (secondary) infection, as they do elsewhere. The secondary infections cause most of the symptoms in AIDS. HIV crushes your levels of CD4 T cells, but generally doesnt cause many symptoms directly. "TB is the cause of death for as many as half of all persons with AIDS" says the CDC." I assume these people probably cough blood (like other people with TB), which should be easy to notice. Here's more on TB in AIDS: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources/factsheets/hivtb.htm > Some people doubt us. But if he has the ball to share a cup of water with us Ha ha. I used to think that sometimes, before XMRV was discovered in us, and when I was very ill and some thought I should just "be tougher." It's strange and interesting to talk to a Chinese guy about such obscure things -- I only wish it wasn't under circumstances so painful for you.
