Acquired immune deficiency syndrome, or AIDS, is a recently recognized disease. It is caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which attacks selected cells in the immune system and produces defects in function. These defects may not be apparent for years. They lead in a relentless fashion, however, to a severe suppression of the immune system's ability to resist harmful organisms. This leaves the body open to invasion by various infections, which are therefore called opportunistic disease, and to the development of unusual cancers. The virus also tends to reach certain brain cells. This leads to so-called neuropsychiatric abnormalities, or psychological disturbances caused by physical damage to nerve cells.
Since the first AIDS cases were reported in 1981, through mid-1989 more than 100,000 AIDS cases and more than 50,000 deaths have been reported in the United States alone. Central Africa in particular appears to suffer a heavy burden of this illness.
Many of those infected with HIV may not even be aware that they carry and can spread the virus. It is evident that HIV infection represents an epidemic of serious proportions. Combating it is a major challenge to biomedical scientists and health-care providers. Over the years to come, HIV infection and AIDS will represent one of the most pressing public-policy and public-health problems worldwide.
However, there is research to show that the growth of the HIV virus can be inhibited by one of the two types of consumption of juice, namely:
Chile Peppers Juice
Pumpkin Juice
