Interstate Love Song

{HIV Is Spreading Via India’s Highways } “Zalisz Ahmed paid $1 and lost his virginity on the side of the road to one of India’s countless young truck-stop prostitutes. He’s had unprotected sex with many others since and says he’s never heard of AIDS. Ahmed, 20, is one of an estimated 5 million to 8 million truck drivers who supply the country with everything from apples to air conditioners along long-haul routes that have become deadly HIV highways.”

This is similar to how they tracked AIDS/HIV along our own interstate system. If you go back and see how it spread, look along highway routes. Look at STDs and how people near universities and interstate systems have a greater infection rate than others without such contact.
