Happy tidings for gay folks

This little blue baby ain’t for heterosexual men.

A recent study has found that healthy gay men who took this blue anti-AIDS pill, Truvada every day were 44%  less likely to contract HIV. Those proven to have taken the pill faithfully every day – with a blood test – were 90% protected.

The study included 2,500 men, the results of which were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The results are the best news in the AIDS field in years.

“That’s huge”, said Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, head of the infectious diseases division of the National Institutes of Health, which paid for the study along with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
