  • Counter Diet Aids
    1,492 words
    THE DANGERS OF DIET AIDS About a month ago, I stepped onto my bathroom scales. When I looked down at the numbers, my fears were confirmed: I had gained 5 pounds. Overcome with a desire to shed this unwanted extra weight, I decided to join millions of Americans just like me, and buy some sort of diet aid to help me along. I had no idea what to look for, what to avoid, and possible side effects, so I began to research the different types of diet aids, both chemical and herbal, and was hit with som...
  • International Anti Narcotics Assistance To Colombia
    3,052 words
    Since the introduction of narcotics in the United States, American society has felt the effects of drug use in all aspects of daily living. As drug use heightened to new levels in the 1980's the Bush Administration chose to declare a "war" on drugs. Never before in our history had crime been combated with war. This war led to the militarization of the United States' tactics for overcoming illegal drug use in the U.S. Instead of choosing to combat drug use by putting greater effort into reducing ...
  • Rite Aid Corp
    565 words
    I chose to analyze the third largest retail drugstore chain in the United States, Rite Aid Corporation.

Additionally, my Mother has been a pharmacist at Rite Aid Corp for 11 years and she often pays close attention to the financial stability of the company. We both feel that when you are em...

The sugarcoated, innocent, never never land is quickly shedding from my reality and I am faced with the truths of this cynical world. Truth. Do I know the meaning of this word What if all I have trusted had been false, what if those endless nights I lied awake worried over the latest medical news, or any news for that matter, was all just a waste of potentially ...
  • Positive Test Result For Aids
    1,229 words
    The Topic of my report is The Causes and Treatments of Aids. First the: Causes Scientists suspect that at least two viruses cause AIDs: HIV-1 and HIV-2. Worldwide, the viruses infect equal numbers of people, but HIV-1 is much more known in North America. HIV-2 is extremely rare outside of Africa. The virus enters the body through small abrasions or cuts in mucous membranes in the mouth, vagina or rectum and destroys T cells, so the immune system fails. Patients then develop infections that event...
  • Decade Of Aids
    440 words
    WOMEN will get the power to protect themselves against AIDS, if the World Health Organisation has its way. Encouraging men to use condoms, it has decided, is not enough. They work, but many men dislike them; and women, especially very young ones, often lack the sexual bargaining clout to insist. Instead, the WHO believes, pharmaceutical companies could have still-to-be-perfected microbicidal vaginal gels or sprays on the market within two years-if they are given a bit of a push. Vaginal gels hav...
  • Aids Drug Prices

    AIDS is caused by a virus called HIV, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. If a person becomes infected with HIV, their body will make "antibodies", special molecules that are supposed to fight HIV.

In the 1980's, getting a blood transfusion often was how AIDS spread. In the United States, there are about 800,000 to 900,000 people who are HIV-...

    In 2001, 5 million people around the world were infected with HIV. By the end of 2001, there were 3 million AIDS deaths. There are currently estimated to be 50 million people living with HIV / AIDS, with 25 million lives lost by the effects of the infection.

  • H.I.V. Infection
    1,202 words
    For an epidemic that would explode to claim hundreds of thousands of lives, AIDS surfaced very quietly in the United States, with a small notice on June 4, 1981 in a weekly newsletter published by the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, alerting doctors to five unusual cases of pneumonia that had been diagnosed in Los Angeles residents over the previous few months. All the patients were homosexual men who had come down with PCP (Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia), a lung infection usually seen ...
