Wednesday, June 22, 2005Food for Thought
The following Website is a list of the leading causes of death in the U.S. Why didn't HIV/AIDS make the list?
The CDC estimated ~18,000 deaths. If HIV/AIDS is as deadly as they say, why didn't it make the list as a leading cause of deaths in the U.S.? And - why can't the actual number of people infected and those who died from HIV/AIDS be acounted for instead of using estimated percentages after two decades to represent this class of people? What criteria was used to make the estimates if not from the actual numbers?
Other Epidemics in the U.S. and around the world - the fatalities were real.
For instance, the Bubonic Plague, which happened in 1330, it was reported that after five years - 25 million people were dead--one-third of Europe's people.
The Spanish Influenza outbreak in 1918 - 1919 left 25 million dead in one year. There were three major Influenza epidemics - the 6th, 14th, and 17th centuries. The death toll from all three outbreaks was 137 million victims.
Where is the real data for HIV/AIDS from the death register? Where is it? Because, I can't find it...
