AIDS Question (So sure it's stupid but...)


Recommended Posts

Ok, I have obsessive compulsive disorder and extreme anxiety related to my health, so I hope that no one is offended by this question but I'd like a little peace of mind. Last night I was splitting a beer with my friend at a party, backwash and all as we were rather drunk, and he told me that his friend -let's call him M- had drank the first half of the beer. M is a heroin addict and notorious for shooting up with needles of questionable cleanliness.

 

There's no way I could get HIV or AIDS from him via beer saliva or backwash, is there?

I wouldn't worry about it. I saw a study once, oddly enough, that was done to determine how much backwash existed in a drink once it got towards the end. The study showed the actual amount of backwash that exists in a beverage is almost none. Plus alcohol is a germ killer so I'm sure you're fine. Maybe say no thanks to the used drinks from now on though to prevent scaring yourself.
