I dont intend to prolong this long drawn 'battle' between us that has seen us importing our animosity to every thread on our beloved forum, so i will extend an olive branch as a means of calling a truce (it takes the bigger man).
So BhudiMathawuzeni a.k.a. Tshisa, i suggest we refrain from petty name calling and derogatory insults. I will present to you my pespective and hope for the interest of a balanced debate, you will follow suit.
If you read my initial post, you will notice that i stated that 'Dont get me wrong bantu, im not saying Vuyo died of AIDS' . I merely questioned if there could be a link between his death and HIV as it appears to have a link with leukemia
In the UK , almost 7,000 people are diagnosed with leukaemia every year. The term leukaemia refers to a group of cancers of the blood cells. In leukaemia, white blood cells ? which are made in the bone marrow -- become abnormal, and divide and grow in an uncontrolled way.
White blood cells protect your body from infection. In leukaemia, some of the white blood cells don't grow properly. They stay in the bone marrow and keep reproducing in an uncontrolled way. These abnormal white blood cells fill up the bone marrow and prevent it from making healthy white blood cells. This means the body is less able to fight off infections.
The symptoms of leukaemia vary, depending on the exact type of disease and how advanced it is. Many symptoms are vague, such as fever, headaches, weight loss and night sweats. They may also include tiredness, breathlessness and pale skin, frequent infections that do not get better, abnormal bleeding from gums and cuts, heavier periods in women, bone pain (due to the pressure of a build-up of cells in the bone marrow), swollen lymph glands.
The exact cause of leukaemia isn't known, although there are some factors that increase the chance of developing it. These include: a weakened immune system, high doses of radiation, or diseases that affect the immune system (e.g HIV).
The effectiveness of treatment for leukaemia depends on the type and stage of the disease. Acute leukaemia often goes into remission (the symptoms go away; the disease is under control but not necessarily cured). But many people with acute leukaemia have a relapse (the disease returns). Treatment includes: chemotherapy, radiotherapy, bone marrow or stem cell transplant etc.
