Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

CDC is about getting healthier people and making this world a better place. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) goal is to research and learn about diseases to vaccinate people to prevent them. The first ever disease to be eradicated was the small pox and today there is no one who has the small pox's.

How can you make yourself stop touching your face?

If it helps, you’re not the only one. According to a 2015 study, people touch their faces an average of 23 times per hour. That’s a pretty tough habit to break, but doing so could significantly decrease your risk of contracting infections.

One of the most common ways for infections to spread is when you touch something, picking up a germ, and then rub your eyes, nose, or mouth. To kick the habit, experts in hand hygiene (which, yes, is a real thing you can be an expert in) suggest changing something in your environment, like wearing something on your hands or face, to make you realize you’re touching your face. If you’re aware you’re doing it, you can train yourself to stop. And if you really need to scratch your nose or something, they suggest covering your hand in a tissue.

HIV and AIDS
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

What name did the CDC have for HIV before it was HIV?

Former Names For HIVI'm not sure there is a clear answer to this, due to how the question is worded.

Part of this comes from the separation of HIV from AIDS as source vs. medical condition. The other part comes from the timeline that extends long before what most consider the beginning of HIV and AIDS (circa 1980 or slightly before).

AIDS was originally called HTLV-3. HTLV-1 is distantly related to HIV and is found mostly in Japan and the Caribbean,... www.thebody.com/Forums/AIDS/Infections/Archive/STDs/Q5161.HTML

An incorrect, but common answer would be GRID(Gay Related Immunodeficiency Syndrome), which was rejected by the CDC. Source and original citation: http://biotech.law.lsu.edu/Books/lbb/x590.htm#fnB129

In short, if another name can be identified by another contributor, I think it might miss the bigger issue which ties all the different names used during the evolution and continued understanding of HIV and AIDS.

Read on for more from Wikifriendus contributors:

  • Previous names for the HIV are:
  • lymphadenopathy-associated virus (LAV)
  • human T-lymphotropic virus-III (HTLV-III)
  • AIDS-associated retrovirus (ARV)

The first name for HIV that was officially adopted by the CDC (in 1984) was human T-lymphotropic virus-III (HTLV-III).

In 1981, when the syndrome that is now known as AIDS was first observed in a cluster of gay men in California, the CDC did in fact refer to it as GRID (Gay-Related Immune Deficiency); but this was replaced with the term AIDS (in September 1982) when it was realised that it was not just gay men who were affected.

The previous answer states that AIDS was originally known as HTLV-3. This is not correct - and you will no doubt also note that careful reading of the cited source: "HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, was originally called HTLV-3" does not actually say that either.

The original name for HIV (which is not the same as AIDS) was lymphadenopathy-associated virus (LAV) and was first used by Luc Montagnier when he announced the discovery of the virus in 1983. (this name was however never officially adopted by the CDC).

The term human T-lymphotropic virus-III (HTLV-III) has only ever referred to HIV - and was first used by Robert Gallo in 1984 (a full two years after the term AIDS had been officially adopted by the CDC).

The term human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was first agreed and officially adopted in 1986.

Given that HIV and AIDS are not interchangeable terms and that HIV was not even discovered until 1983, any other "timelines" are wholly irrelevant.

It is only with the benefit of hindsight that isolated instances (spanning back to the late 1950s), of people mysteriously developing unexplained (and unnamed) immune deficient conditions, have been tied back to what we now know as HIV and AIDS.

What are the legal responsibility of the CDC to inform the public of the risks of a vaccine?

this is a good one, legally they are supposed to..do they? No- most vaccines are very dangerous and it is not made public knowledge- they are laced with mercury and other toxins and although the medical comm. and the fda and other entities swears they are not, its untrue- so to answer your question, they are legally obligated to inform you of any proven dangers (proven being the key word here) do they? Nope!
