I've been recently diagnosed with HIV and when you have something like this you just want to flood yourself with information. This podcast has given me that and much more. Thanks!
Where is the new updates, articles, ect.?
The Body usually has good information but, when it comes to pod casts that is a different story. For instance the title: This Month in HIV, suggests that every month there is something coming out but, this has yet to be seen as this podcast has not been updated since January 2010 and it is July 2010 that I am writing this review. Some information is worse then no information and history has proven this time and again. I know for fact that there are other problems, medicines and treatments for mental, physical, emotional and spiritual that should be presented. I would suggest going to POZ Magazine or Test Positive Aware Network for information as they put out some great topics, all can be downloaded in magazine form via PDF.
Final statement: If you don't have the time, will or patience to do something like this then don't do it. There is already enough outdated bad information out there, please don't add to it.
