A Disastrous Talk! AIDS in cut fruit?

I had a very disastrous talk today. Hah...

Oh well... I think I've learned a lot from it. And I'll do good not to get into a crazy situation like that.

Anyway, that said and done...

I received mail from a friend regarding cut fruit bought from street vendors may pass on aids. Here's the article:

It happens in Singapore - Waterloo Street . A 10 year old boy,
eaten pineapple about 15 days back, and fell sick, from the day he had
eaten. Later when he had his Health check done... doctors diagnosed that
had AIDS. His parents couldn't believe it...Then the entire family under
went a checkup... none of them suffered from Aids. So the doctors
again with the boy if he had eaten out...The boy said 'yes'. He had
pineapple that evening.

Immediately a group from the hospital went to the pineapple
to check. They found the pineapple seller had a cut on his finger while
cutting the pineapple; his blood had spread into the fruit.

When they had his blood checked...the guy was suffering from
AIDS...but he himself was NOT aware. Unfortunately the boy is suffering
it now. Please take care while u eat on the road side and please forward
this mail to your dear one's.
