But you won't get it if you ingested it from your mouth (without any opened sores). It's because that our digestion tubes are covered by mocous which is slowly but sure will be directed into our stomach and mixed with HCl there...:lol:

The HIV virus is very weak battling the all-time enemy of organic molecules: OXYGEN. After maximum ten minutes in oxygen the virus "dies"
