What is AIDS?

AIDS - Acquired immune deficiency syndrome, still has no cure.  This is caused by HIV - human immunodeficiency virus.  This virus directly attacks the immune system of an individual. It reduces absorption of nutrients, especially folate, riboflavin, thiamine, and vitamins B6 and B12.  Person affected by this virus should take a well balanced diet inorder to keep away complications and weight loss.  Death in a affect is person is mostly due to starvation than complications caused by the virus.  The affected individual should never starve.  He should rather concentrate on keeping him/her well hydrated and nourished. 
Doctors suggest the infected person to take nutritional supplements to prevent deficiencies caused by this virus.  The infected person should eat foods that are well cooked and should avoid eating partially cooked vegetables and meat.  They should refrain from consuming alchol as it might worsen.
