Can you get HIV/AIDS through saliva?



Can you get HIV/AIDS through saliva?

Why is everyone so uneducated...
pick up a book and read..
HIV is not as contractible as everyone makes it out to be,
yes it is contracted through blood, blood products, semen and vaginal fluids
but
it is a virus that is highly unstable outside of it's environment
There are considerable low amounts of virus found in saliva but not enough to contract HIV through. Even needle stick injuries to health care providers have a 0.3% chance of contracting HIV and still it would depend on several factors such as,
what stage was the person with HIV, if they were on a drug regime, how much virus was in the blood, how much blood you came in contact with, and if the blood was transmitted through an artery or vein.

It is silly to be worried about contracting HIV through a french kiss what you should be really worried about is contracting Hep C
Very uncommon though not impossible..
no...it is highly unlikely
I'm pretty sure you can. I don't know if it's as common as blood or semen transfer but saliva is a bodily fluid too so I think you can get it that way.
very unlikely, most med journals i've read said it's highly unlikely to get HIV through saliva. However, if there are open sores in your mouth then it increases the chances
if you have sores in your mouth then yes it is possible
If the person in question has an open sore in the mouth and their saliva somehow gets into an open sore on you, then yes. Otherwise no.
