Ignorance Invites Infection with Black Women and HIV/AIDS

I’m convinced that ignorance is largely responsible for the high rates of HIV/AIDS among Black women. I refuse to believe that a Black women in full possession of all the facts regarding HIV/AIDS would willingly put herself at risk for HIV/AIDS.

As an infidelity expert and a Black woman, I would be remiss if I did not speak out about this issue– especially since same sex infidelity -- better known in the Black community as the “down low” is the primary way that Black women are contracting HIV. I think a major part of the problem is that many Black women are unaware of the facts about HIV/AIDS – the statistics, methods of transmission, the prevalence of the disease among Black women, and circumstance and situations in their lifestyles that put them at risk for this disease.

Far too many Black women are ignorant about these things concerning HIV/AIDS, and that ignorance invites infection.

For Black women, ignorance about HIV/AIDS can take many forms. But if you’re like most Black women, your ignorance regarding HIV/AIDS will fall into two main categories:

1. ignorance about the latest facts and statistics regarding Black women and HIV/AIDS.

2. ignorance of the circumstances in your lifestyle which could inadvertently put you at risk for HIV infection.

Let’s take a closer look at these two areas of ignorance which put Black women at risk for HIV/AIDS.

Ignorance About HIV/AIDS Facts And Statistics

● Ignorance that that HIV/AIDS is no longer a predominantly gay white male disease, but is now a predominantly Black disease, with Black women being the highest risk category.

● Ignorance that Blacks are the hardest hit of all racial and ethnic groups in the United States.

● Ignorance that despite the fact that Blacks account for 12 percent of the U.S. population, we represent over 50% of all HIV/AIDS cases.

● Ignorance that HIV/AIDS is now a major health crisis for Black women.

● Ignorance that HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death for Black women 25-34 years of age.

● Ignorance that almost 70% of all newly diagnosed HIV-positive women in the United States are Black women.

● Ignorance that 62% of women living with HIV are Black women.

● Ignorance that Black women are 33 times more likely than white women to be living with HIV/AIDS.

● Ignorance that Black women are most likely to be infected with HIV as a result of unprotected sex with men who are HIV positive.

● Ignorance that the majority of Black men who are HIV positive have no idea they are infected.

● Ignorance that exposure to another sexually-transmitted disease like gonorrhea, syphilis, or chlamydia can increase her risk of getting HIV.

● Ignorance that Blacks with AIDS don’t live as long as people of other races who have AIDS.

● Ignorance that there is NO CURE for HIV/AIDS, but there are treatments that can help manage the disease and keep it from getting worse.

Ignorance of Lifestyle Circumstances that Put You at Risk for HIV/AIDS

● Ignorance that your husband or boyfriend is a potential source of HIV/AIDS.

● Ignorance of your sex partner’s sexual history, or his true sexual orientation.

● Ignorance that your husband or boyfriend has other sex partners, and that you are not in a monogamous relationship as you assumed.

● Ignorance that your husband or boyfriend is sexually involved with another man, and that you is a victim of same sex infidelity.

● Ignorance that the most common way for a you, as a Black woman to become infected with HIV is by having unprotected sex with a Black man on the down low.

● Ignorance about how to accurately determine if your husband or boyfriend is on the down low.

● Ignorance about your man’s HIV status – that he may be HIV positive, and may have already infected you with HIV.

● Ignorance about your own HIV status.

● Ignorance that if you are HIV positive, early treatment can keep the disease from turning into full blown AIDS.

Your ignorance in any one of the areas above can leave you open to infection from HIV.

Educate Yourself About HIV/AIDS

The best way to overcome your ignorance in these areas is to educate yourself and your sisters about HIV/AIDS. Remember - ignorance invites infection. Knowledge is power. The more you know about HIV/AIDS, and how it’s transmitted, and the lifestyle factors that put you at risk for this disease, the less likely you’ll be to engage in behavior that can jeopardize your health. It would be a tragedy if you were to become infected with HIV through no fault of your own, simply because of something you didn’t know.

Abstain, or practice safe sex.

Get tested. Know your own and your partner’s HIV status. To locate a testing center near you, visit hivtest.org or, on your cell phone, text your zip code to Know IT (566948).

If you are, or have been sexually involved with a man whose HIV status you don’t know, GET TESTED RIGHT AWAY. The longer you wait to find out, the worse it will be for your health later on, if it turns out that you’re HIV positive.

2 Resources to Help Overcome Ignorance About Black Women and HIV/AIDS

In an effort to combat some of the ignorance surrounding Black women, the “down low” and HIV/AIDS, I’ve compiled the following resources:

Black Woman’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Quiz
A Black Woman’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Quiz designed to help Black women identify the gaps in their knowledge and behavior in their lifestyles that put them at risk for HIV/AIDS. This quiz will help you pinpoint any changes you need to make in order to safeguard your health and reduce your chances of becoming an HIV/AIDS statistic.

The Black Woman’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Quiz can be found on my blog about Black Women, the Down Low and HIV/AIDS at http://blackwomen-thedownlow-hivaids.blogspot.com/ Take the quiz. Share it with your female friends and relatives, and encourage them to take it too. Your health, your well-being, your very life depends on being well informed. Ignorance invites infection.

The Down Low Dozen Tip Sheet
Part 1 of this free 2-part tip sheet describes a discreet 3-step procedure for finding out your man is on the down low, without the risk of looking foolish or making false accusations. Part 2 of the Down Low Dozen tip sheet provides practical advice on what to do if you find out your husband or boyfriend is on the down low, tips how to confront him about his down low status, questions to ask, precautions to take, and how to find places to get help. For a FREE copy of the Down Low Dozen tip sheet, e-mail DownLowDozen@gmail.com with “DL Dozen-bw” in the subject line. Ignorance invites infection. If your man is on the Down low, you can’t afford to be the last to know.

THE CURE for HIV/AIDS.......AMBUSH

THE IDEA that AMBUSH cures AIDS
is being proven by the more than 400 individuals who have taken a dose of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. The result is that AMBUSH 'KILLS' the virus by causing the protein envelope to rupture and the viral particles are discarded by the white blood cells. AMBUSH is able to 'KILL' the virus that are 'hiding' in the lymph system by its 'natural radioactive' properties. This process allows the body to 'return to normal health' with a corresponding immunity to that or those strains of the virus.

What is AMBUSH ?
AMBUSH is a radioactive isotope of uranium that is found in the 'palm' plant of which there are more than 3000 species. When ingested, AMBUSH causes the body temperature in the trunk area to rise to about 102 degrees when the individual is sleeping. The preparation takes four hours per batch, which is then given to the individuals for consumption 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. AMBUSH is a herbal preparation in this form but it contains an active ingredient which is a 'NEW' crystalline substance, a drug from the 'palm plant' similarly to ASPIRIN originating from the willow tree bark

RESULTS:
After 21 days on AMBUSH, ALL the individuals experienced a decrease in viral load to undetectable, an increase in cd4, increase in RBC, an improvement in general health such as more color to the face, decrease in Buffalo hump, an increase in gluteal muscles, a decrease to having no joint pains whereby individuals can bend to touch their toes, and walk up steps are but a few examples. There is also a dramatic increase in their sexual appetite beginning after the first week of therapy

DISCUSSION:
In any plant concoction such as percolated 'tea', there are 30-40,000 compounds, whi ch would take the scientific community twenty years to isolate one particular ingredient if they knew what they were looking for. The LORD GOD has given me seven steps to isolate the active ingredient, which is soft and metallic in nature and has a carbon- uranium-sulfur-(classified)-phentolamine configuration or structure. This is similar to Federick Kekule and the discovery of the benzene ring where he dreamt the structure.

As an antiviral and 'natural radioactivity' producing agent, AMBUSH is also effective against leukemia, lupus and HPV. Here I am saying that I have 'GIVEN' AMBUSH in the same 'strength' and dosage to patients with leukemia, lupus and HPV. A 35 year old male with HIV found it difficult to impossible to urinate was put on 'green tea' and water while the doctors contemplated prostrate surgery. One of the doctors gave him my number , I sent him a supply of AMBUSH an d he has not been given any more ARV's, since taking AMBUSH 18 months ago, is in 'good' health and has expressed a willingness to be examined by HIV investigators like many others who have taken AMBUSH.

I have sent this 'IDEA' to most HIV research agencies, scientist of the field, universities, hospitals, clinics, politicians and news agencies to which it is REJECTED because the name of THE LORD GOD is mentioned. He has steered me scientifically through the processes such as which plant and how to produce the active ingredient. What are the odds of a Florida Pharmacist picking a plant would contain the CURE for HIV/AIDS ?
I have never charged any of the people for their supply of AMBUSH but a life saving has been spent on the project with NO renumeration from any sources because AMBUSH falls outside the walls of modern medicine and research.

PROPOSAL:

My proposal is that I PROVE that AMBUSH CURES HIV/AIDS by giving it to a number of END-STAGE or DRUG-RESISTANT people and the scientific community watches their recovery. This proposal addresses the problem in that I have already outlaid the results to be obtained.

This IDEA is unconventional in that the scientific community has rejected AMBUSH because I say it is GOD given. Secondly if I wrote it according to certain standards, then it might be peer reviewed. However, THE LORD GOD has also shown me that there are five enzyme systems associated with the virus, reverse transcriptase, protease, fusion and two more of which causes the virus to be AIRBOURNE. This means that without DIVINE intervention mankind and ALL warm- blooded mammals will be extinct in a number of years.

The PROOF of what I am saying is found in scientific papers wherein it is found that when the protease cuts the viral strands, it cuts it at DIFFERENT lengths EVERY time, to which it should always be a valine at the end but is a different amino acid every time. This is why it is IMPOSSIBLE to produce a VACCINE.

Since this is NOT a hypothesis but there are about 400 individuals who have taken AMBUSH, here lies a vast area in which to check, recheck and confirm that AMBUSH CURES AIDS. Let it be mentioned that during the HIV reproductive cycle, reverse transcriptase converts viral RNA into DNA compatible to human genetic materials. Thus the human DNA has been 'hijacked' and since each person has a DIFFERENT DNA, then the new viral copy is unique to that person which shows that each individual has a DIFFERENT STRAIN of the virus. Consider two HIV positive people swapping viral strains and increasing its complexity with multiple partners.
It can also be proposed that they be revisited as proof that the strain or strains that they had were 'killed' at the time of taking AMBUSH considering that a person can catch as many different strains as there are people who are infected by HIV.
I am also willing to work with the scientific community in identifying those individuals who took AMBUSH and wish to be identified with this process notwithstanding that some are stigmatized while others are jubilant,

Once AMBUSH is verified as being able to accomplish that which is aforementioned then the next stage might be the natural and artificial synthesis of the substance.

Finally, if this is accepted or not, believed or not, THE LORD GOD always wins and this is the heavenly truth to which AMBUSH was divinely given to mankind for the CURE of HIV/AIDS and it will be here forever. Apostle Shada Mishe.
