Health : A Condom That Detects STDs

Catégorie: Health

A condom that changes colour when it comes into contact with STDs has been invented by a group of school children.

The ‘S.T.EYE’ has a built-in indicator to detect infections such as chlamydia and syphilis, turning a different colour depending on the strain of bacteria present.

Three students at Isaac Newton Academy in Ilford, Essex, wanted to “make detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before” without the need for invasive tests. The 13 and 14 years old kids are definitely smart! I don’t remember being aware of what STDs were when I was their age.

Good job guys!

Health : What’s Your Status In Your Profile?

Marketing is generally the driving force in all sales efforts; that includes the sale of one’s self.

Hooking-up online has it’s advantages: advantages that can get you laid quickly and matched with just the right guy. One of the advantages found in profiles are that they can tell you what a guy is into, where he is, what he looks like, and when he is available. Profiles are the online marketing tools of those seeking sex. When accurate and honest, a well written profile can reduce the talk required before meeting a sexual match to a couple of emails and help to ensure you have a great time with the right guy. When a profile is completed with detailed information, the information posted can effectively weed out those you are not interested in meeting, and invite those you want to meet. Profiles are great marketing tools!

When members join Adam4Adam seeking a sex partner, what goes in your profile—your marketing tool—will ultimately help to determine what happens sexually between you and other members of the site.

Health : HIV Guide – Elton John AIDS Foundation

Catégorie: Health

Elton-John-AIDS-Foundation

 

Earlier this week, just hours after Grammy Award-winning music legend Elton John urged Congress to bolster its fight against AIDS, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, in collaboration with AIDS United, released a guide on HIV prevention and care, as well as a unique online Q&A feature. The new resource is supported in part by a grant from the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The guide, “A Handbook To Understanding Health and HIV,” lays out facts and debunks myths about HIV and AIDS at a time when 1.2 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV, and there are still 50,000 new diagnoses annually. It is being released at a time when, as Elton John noted in his testimony today before a Senate appropriations subcommittee, sustained efforts are needed to prevent the disease from once again becoming a “ruthless pandemic.”

Health : A Magazine Printed With HIV/AIDS Blood

We are publishing this Swiss press release “as is.” It describes an interesting attempt to destigmatize HIV, we feel, but not without controversy. Some may have issues with the way the magazine has chosen to address HIV stigma. Would you donate your blood for a commercial venture like this? Is it necessary, as the publisher does here, to warn readers that the magazine is not dangerous? (It arrives in a clear plastic wrapper that reads, “Break the seal and help break the stigma.”) Does focussing on the stigma associated with HIV reduce it or actually perpetuate that same stigma? Or is this all a cheap publicity stunt designed to sell copies?

These are some of the questions I invite you to ponder – and comment on if you feel so inclined.

 

In a new campaign from Saatchi & Saatchi Switzerland for Vangardist, a leading German men’s monthly, the magazine invites its readers to take a hands-on approach to end the social stigma surrounding HIV

To coincide with one of the biggest HIV events in the world – Life Ball – which takes place every year in Vangardist’s home town of Vienna, all 3,000 copies of its Spring issue are printed with ink infused with HIV+ blood donated by three individuals living with the HIV virus.
