Dear Matilda
AIDS - aging society
Thank you for the chapter. I like it.
Re page 6.
Top: add that AIDS attacks brain as well as immune system.
Footnote 6. OK.
page 9. Footnote 9. I prefer you say, instead:
"Although no example of aerosol transmission of HIV has been documented, Joshua Lederberg cautions that AIDS patients with tuberculosis and terminal pneumonia are another potential hazard. (Ref. my Soc. Res. article). In view of the grave consequences of pneumonic dissemination, should it occur, more research is urgently needed on the emission of HIV accompanying such disease"
Joshua.
