Tuesday, October 15, 2019 - The anti-HIV drug Truvada is getting credit for being 99% effective in preventing the spread of HIV when used in conjunction with other safe sex practices but is also being derided by others who support practicing abstinence and monogamy. Thinking individuals question whether governments are merely catering to the sexual preferences of the gay community by promoting the use of Truvada and subsidizing its cost. Journalists in the global media are calling Truvada a "lifestyle drug" and a "promiscuity pill" according to The Guardian in England. People there and in Australia are furious at their government's decision to spend tens of millions of taxpayer dollars subsidizing the cost of the anti-HIV drug so that homosexuals without insurance who can not afford the drug can have access to it. According to The Guardian, England's national television recently aired a segment they called "Free 20m drug for gays who won't use condoms," an obvious reference to straight people's objection to what they may consider the frivolous use of funds when condoms are nearly 100% effective in preventing HIV as well as other forms of sexually transmitted infections. The US Food and Drug Administration writes "When used consistently and correctly, condoms are highly effective in preventing HIV. They are also effective at preventing sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) that are transmitted through bodily fluids, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia." Truvada kidney failure attorneys offer families and individuals seeking compensation for pain and suffering due to Truvada's drug side effects.
People speaking on behalf of the gay community call this type of sexual labeling to be Neanderthal thinking, straight out of the 1980's and calling for awareness that HIV is no longer only a homosexual problem although the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has concluded otherwise. According to the CDC, "Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men are the population most affected by HIV in the United States. In 2017, adult and adolescent gay and bisexual men made up 70% (27,000) of the 38,739 new HIV diagnoses in the United States (US) and dependent areas.d Approximately 492,000 sexually active gay and bisexual men are at high risk for HIV."
Anti-HIV drugs like Truvada have proven to have serious and potentially life-altering side effects like causing kidney failure and brittle bones. Some people, especially those with compromised immune systems expose themselves to the possibility of developing osteoporosis that could be permanent and irreversible, however, not enough data is available to know for sure. The same holds for kidney failure and renal problems as Truvada's toxicity makes the drug difficult to process through the system. These conditions and other have prompted Truvada users to consult with attorneys to determine if they have just cause to file a claim against Gilead Sciences, maker of Truvada, for failing to adequately warn of Truvada's side effects. That said, Truvada's greatest adverse side effect may prove to be the false sense of security that it provides users, encouraging unsafe sex without using a condom, and inadvertently promoting a more promiscuous lifestyle that can spread sexually transmitted diseases.
