Didja see the mouthwatering pictures of Coco la ti da chocolate cakes on the front of today's P-I food section? I brought it to work with me just so I could stare at it. It's like cake porn.

I'm not sure where I read that daily ejaculations are beneficial to long-term prostate health. Now that I think about it, the source for that factoid may well have been Penthouse....

I'm not sure if ejaculating is good for the prostate, but let's err on the side of ejaculation, shall we?

I have always seriously wondered if there is a difference between prostate cancer rates between men who catch and men who don't. My thinking is the men who catch have their prostates stimulated more often, so it is less likely to become enlarged or cancerous.

Has this ever been studied?

I've had minor prostate issues for several years and my doc kindly informed to go ahead and get fucked as much as I wanted, because it would, in his opinion, perhaps help my situation, and whatever the case, it certainly wouldn't hurt it. Too bad I'm a top though, huh?

PLEEEASE tell me that tortillas prevent cancer.

and cheese, too.

since you'll believe absolutely ANY garbage you hear about "HIV", I don't see why you wouldn't believe eating chocolate cake will reduce infectability from "HIV".

Oh, wait, I remember that you were able to question the "AIDS" propaganda - when there was that "supervirus" strain in NYC. Now, Mr. Savage, why did THAT one make you question the holy church of "AIDS"?

So, let me understand believe that smoking will make a gay man more susceptible to "HIV infection", but you don't believe in the NYC "supervirus". Hmm.

You're unable to separate reality from fantasy in "AIDS fairy tale land". It might help if you had the balls to actually do a little research about things like the so-called "HIV tests". If you did, you find out some "inconvenient truths" about those "tests", such as the facts that they are not standardized and are non-specific.

But, like so many gay men, you're hypnotized by the idea of a microbe that has a special hate in it's heart for gay men, and seem more than willing to take turn that belief into a death sentence for your fellow gay men.

Thanks for the heads up, Dan. I KNEW I wasn't drinking enough, and not the other way around!

I will glady let you have any slices of cake that come my way in exchange for your shots of brandy, whisky, and rum (or other brown liquors).

Cake, meh. The one in the picture looks awful to me. I like pie. And brown liquor.

here's some dissection of the test literature for you and your readers to ponder. Check it out. Let's talk.

I don't want to find out that cake is the ultimate preventative. It should be potato chips. Really greasy ones. If it could be proven that Lays potato chips and Cheetos are health food, I'd live forever.

Who you gonna believe? The nuts, or your lying eyes?

My friends with HIV die. And die and die and die. Researchers and scientists, after a decade and a half or work, come up with a drug that attacks the HIV virus. My friends stop dying.

it needs to be dark chocolate brownies, actually.

oh, and there are some scientific papers on the daily sexual release thing as well. go out, get mild to moderate exercise, eat some veggies in your diet, and if you're a guy have 1-2 glasses of red wine a day with meals.

Posted by Will in Seattle | October 25, 2006 2:42 PM

Well, Dan, I'd implore you to look into the issue further.

My experience with this is: the friends I have that are dead took the drugs...the friends I have that are still alive haven't taken the drugs. It's more complex than you're simple view allows. Did you take a look at the language on the test literature, btw?

Posted by BD | October 25, 2006 3:27 PM

I'm actually very interested as to why you didn't believe in the NYC supervirus, and why you do believe that smoking increases a person's susceptibility to "HIV infection".

Posted by BD | October 25, 2006 3:34 PM

I'd be interested in why BD doesn't take his kook bidness elsewhere.

Posted by Fnarf | October 25, 2006 3:45 PM

I'd like to know why BD doesn't move to Lesotho or South Africa where he'll be among other holocaust-deniers.

Well, I've got NEWS for the AIDS Apologists. There are "denialers" in Portland, Oregon who work in the legal field and I can tell you that ATTORNEYS at respectible law firms are starting to smell the "blood" of a floundering "HIV" theory of "AIDS."

There is a case happening in in Australia right now over the validity of the "HIV" theory... And if you think that any (I repeat *ANY*) lawyer would put their reputation on the line over denial--think AGAIN.

When the civil lawsuits start breaking out over "HIV" then all the "AIDS Pushers" will be have moment to pause over their contribution in supporting M-E-D-I-C-A-L F-R-A-U-D. (Thought I should spell that word out for all the apologists ...slowly... so you'll be sure to understand...)

Real Life AIDS Trial?
Law Firm Seeks Positive Testing Clients

A respected law firm in Alabama asked me to pass on the following message:

"We are looking for 'HIV positive' individuals in Alabama, preferably in Macon County, who are willing to explore the possibility of seeking damages associated with their perceived diagnosis. Anyone ‘HIV positive’ in Alabama is a potential candidate. It is irrelevant whether they are currently taking or have previously taken medications prescribed in response to their positive diagnosis or have chosen to abstain from anti-HIV pharmaceuticals."

Replies should be sent direct to Alive & Well. We will forward these to the lead counsel.
