In a message dated 97-03-05 13:26:52 EST, you write:

What?? Why? This is after all how most (99%?) viral diseases kill i.e.via
bacterial secondary diseases.

<<Kaposi's sarcoma is almost non-existent in people with a functioning immune

system. Similarly, most people don't get fungus growing on their lips and
tongue, but AIDs patients do. This has to do with a broken immune system,
not with HIV infecting their lips. Neurons don't divide but other nervous
system cells, like glia, do.

I agree. This normal for a retrovirus like HIV when causing diseases. That
is not even controversial anymore, see Temin and Baltimore, 1975 Nobel prize
