Well done! I am supporting World AIDS Day on my blog as well. I had not seen the 10 myths information before. As usual, I learn something new from the Underground again and again...

peace, Villager

Ah thankyou Villager ^_^
I strive to stand straight as a conscious member of the Blog media, and am inspired by blogs like yours, and Yobachi's to name a few.
Your Electronic Village is such an important community and information base to the Black diaspora and conscious public in general.

I hope all is well on your end.

Good video Zoe. Thanks for your support on yet another campaign.

I wish she would have gone deeper into the issue of the first myth about those who try to claim HIV doesn't cause AIDS. I did a post about AIDS denialism awhile back: http://www.blackperspective.net/index.php/aids-in-africa-uganda-still-an-example-to-the-world/

To pop my own collar a little, I'm proud that I knew all the info in that video.

I'm going to have use this video in one of my post later this week and see what else they have on aidsvideos.org

If you do another post, I'd encourage you to give people the link to the Age of AIDS documentary as well, it's great. The link is in the post that I did today. You can watch it for free online.

Thanks Yobachi.
It's important to keep awareness in the forefront, especially in a society that seems to encourage carelessness, and lack of consciousness.
I added an update to this post with the link. I hope to locate information on what many are claiming as a holistic cure for AIDS and other viruses. If I can find it I will be posting the information.
Apparently it is more well-known overseas.

Another great contribution toward change!

I am too participating in Yobachi's challenge and will definitely lead my readers to this important information.

Wishing you well, sweets.
