A chain reaction is the continuation of a reaction initiated by the reaction itself. In some cases it is a closed reaction, where the repetition ends. In others, it will conti…nue until it exhausts the available reactants. A nuclear chain reaction would include 1) fission, where the neutrons released by a split atom travel outward and cause fission in other radioactive atoms 2) fusion, where the heat energy released by the reaction triggers the fusion of more atoms in a very hot and dense plasma A nuclear reactor moderates a safe fission reaction in a critical mass of radioactive material by allowing only a portion of the neutrons to reach other fissionable atoms. Otherwise, the reaction would cascade into a runaway criticality that would generate too much heat, melting and damaging the nuclear pile. In an atomic bomb, the chain reaction spreads to millions of atoms practically instantaneously. The reaction only lasts a fraction of a second but releases an incredible amount of energy.
Syphilis can cause open sores. That definitely increases the chances of infection.
It means the baby is born HIV positive because his mother has it.
Unprotected sex accounts for the majority of new HIV infections. HIV is transmitted through contact with blood, semen, vaginal fluid or breast milk. While coming in contact wi…th an HIV+ person's blood carries the highest risk for infection, it is far more likely for someone to exposed during sexual intercourse to semen or vaginal fluid.
No, circumcision does NOT prevent the transmission of HIV. Condoms can dramatically reduce the chance of HIV transmission. There's some evidence that circumcised men face a …little less risk of catching HIV, but that's still far away from saying it's safe.
Dont share liquids with any other person. These are some examples of ways you can get these deseases: Kissing, sexual behavore, drinking after another person, being "Blood bro…thers" ect.!! Maybe its time we learn to stop doing these things.
In terms of statistical risk generally homosexual populations in developed countries as well as drug users are at greater risk. In areas of high prevalence there is a risk to …most people who have active sex lives. In practical risks everyone who has any form of sexual contact: Anal, Vaginal, and oral (unless they can find a way to refute oral transmission) has risk regardless of their sexuality. Similarly drug users also have risk if they are sharing needles. Its important if you're a heterosexual or a homosexual to understand that a risk exists and that just because you don't fall into a high risk category doesn't mean that it cant happen to you.
they don't look to happy the ones that know they have it they try to be the somebody else but they survive if they believe in jesus and god thats the medicine
This means mother to baby, before or after birth. This is the main reason why infected women should never get pregnant.
Yes they are.
They feel a sense of rejection from peers and family and wonder what persons we say
HIV lives in WBC's and in present in the sexual fluids of humans HIV the simplest safeguard during sex is the proper use of a latex condom HIV breaks down the body's immunit…y to infections leading to ADIS
Kissing cannot cause HIV transmission unless there is an open, bleeding sore in an infected party's mouth. HIV is transmitted by blood, through unprotected sex, and through s…hared needles.
Read carefully and you will see that the above is not a complete question; there is missing information.
By just having your hair cut, you can not get HIV.
