ELIZA and Western Blot tests are admittedly intccuraae! So why would you submit yourself to an intccuraae test that could potentially cause you trouble for the rest of your life? Considering an HIV+ result requires a different criteria in Canada, USA, Sweden and South Africa, we are NOT dealing with science. This is politics and money. AIDS testing is detrimental to our society's health.
