As if it wasn't bad enough, UCSF researchers have found that HIV patients seem to have higher heart disease risk, due to increased atherosclerosis, or fatty buildup in the arteries.
And in other HIV/AIDS news, the Zambian government has adopted the amazingly stupid position that condom distribution encourages sex. And so they've discontinued their AIDS-prevention program involving condoms. Seems American Puritans aren't the only ones with really, really dumb ideas about sex.
And Le Monde opines about terrorism and democracy, through the thinly veiled anti-Muslim prejudice of contemporary French society.
