Dear HIV & Fruits
In order for HIV infection to occur, three things must happen:
1. You must be exposed to pre-cum, semen, vaginal secretions, blood or breast milk, AND
2. The virus must get directly into your bloodstream through some fresh cut, open sore, abrasion etc., AND
3. Transmission must occur, directly from one person to the other, very quickly (the virus does not survive more than a few minutes outside the body).
HIV is very sensitive to heat and drying out and it is rapidly destroyed at 55 degrees Celsius and above. It is also readily inactivated at both low and high pH ( like the sourness of the pineapple as well as the acid in the stomach) .
Aids develop years after infection, and most people only test positive for HIV 3-4 months after infection! ( so it is highly unlikely to develop AIDS 15 days after eating the pineapple,..)

I don't know of one documented case of someone getting AIDS from a foodhandler.
