Their rationale doesn't pass the sniff test. If I were paranoid, I might think they want a sample of everyone's DNA. For what reason? Some way of identification of a specific group of people? Who or what are they searching for? This is a fishing expedition. Don't get hooked.:bsflag: [/quote] You don't think there are thousands in the US who have HIV and don't know it? [/quote]
All Americans aged 15 to 65 should be tested for HIV, a government health panel has recommended.
According to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an estimated 200,000 people nationwide don't realise they are infected with the virus that can cause AIDS.
Officials said the new draft recommendation is aimed at preventing those people from infecting others or developing AIDS themselves.
If finalised, private insurers would have to pay for the test.
