    Default New Asian AIDS Is Emerging

    Let's call it Asian AIDS or A2IDS.

    A new 2012 scourge of Mankind is emerging in the Far East (or is that the Far West for us Californians?) Well, it’s something new to worry about, along with asteroids, nuclear fallout, global pandemic, Mayan curses and all the other 2012 hoopla.

    It looks like AIDS… but it isn’t.

    The person’s immune system goes down (fails) but they don’t necessarily die.

    Most importantly, it’s NOT a viral infection. There is no HIV (or at least all patients are HIV negative).

    Still, it’s a massive new alarm.

    The new syndrome, which does not seem to pass from person to person, involves an immune-blocking antibody that knocks out a fancy protective molecule called interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), triggering a disease almost indistinguishable from AIDS.

    Dang...that is scary! At least someone has the guts to think it may be environmentally induced. Wonder why confined to Asia? Is there a certain pollutant there not found elsewhere or is it just that pollution is extremely bad there, period? Fascinating.
