A recent study by Klara Hasselrot of Stockholm's Karolinska Institutet says giving head to HIV positive men may inadvertently boost one's own immune system to the virus. She's hypothesizing that antibodies are formed in the saliva of HIV negative folks with HIV positive partners. ll men recruited were in a long-term relationship with an HIV Positive partner. Their semen was tested for IgA1 antibodies -- which have been identified as protecters in some Kenyan sex workers. All men had high levels of IgA1, which scientists think develop once the HIV virus meets saliva. Instead of multiplying and turning into AIDS, it has a neutralizing effect. This IgA1 antibody also seems to last the test of time too and thrive when exposed to a high level of the virus. In other words, the saliva just worked double time if exposed to a higher viral load of HIV.

On Monday in the Jajpur district, a toddler was wedded in holy matrimony with a caramel-colored lady pooch. The marriage ceremony was traditional. There was a feast and priests chanted Sankrit prayers and hymns. The whole nine yards. While we're sure dog and boy will care for each other in sickness and health, until death do they part and all that good stuff, the union wasn't a pairing of passion and true love. Shocking, we know. Rather the arranged marriage took place to help ward off "evil spirits and bad luck" in the "tribal dominated" Patarpur village. Apparently, it is considered a good omen to marry a dog. The boy's family hopes the act may in effect reverse a tooth defect ailing the kid. Children getting married to dogs is actually a pretty popular practice in order to ward off and protect them from evil spirits and ghosts.
