Can you get HIV if someone puts blood in your food?

The unidentified woman who has the Acquired Immunodeficiency Virus admitted in a video that recently went viral online that she added drops of her blood to the local drinks she sells to infect others.

The woman claimed that she was acting in a certain way in order to ensure that "She will not die alone."

Many people have expressed their opinions in response to this film and have wondered whether drinks can spread the infection. No, that's the solution.

In a survey conducted by Casey House, a Toronto-based HIV hospital, just over half of Americans said they would not consume food prepared by an HIV+ person. The non-profit established a pop-up restaurant where all of the chefs are HIV+ in an effort to combat that stigma and false information.

The head of the AIDS Research Institute at the University of California, San Francisco, Paul Volberding, M.D., was questioned by us on whether or not it would be possible to contract HIV from food that had been cooked by a person who was HIV-positive in an effort to allay our concerns.

Do you worry about eating food prepared or served by an HIV+ person?

No. Most people have probably already received services from an HIV+ person without being aware of it and without becoming infected. That's because HIV can only spread through sex or from fluid to fluid—blood to blood.

But what if the cook cuts herself?

95% of HIV-positive individuals are receiving treatment and have undetectable levels of the virus in their blood, making it impossible for them to infect you. However, if the chef cut herself, she would stop cooking, throw away the food, treat the wound, and sanitize the area as any chef would.

If she hadn't seen that she had cut herself, what then?

  1. The kitchen environment makes the virus uninhabitable even if a small amount of blood accidentally enters the food without anyone realizing it.

What does "inhospitable" actually mean?

  1. The virus would be killed by the heat and air in the kitchen during cooking.

What if the chef's blood accidentally landed on a salad or other cold dish?

  1. Due to the fact that the meal is ingested orally rather than through an open wound, your stomach acid will kill the virus as it passes through your digestive system.

What would happen if the client got a cut on their mouth?

  1. However, it is difficult for such a small amount of blood to enter there and infect you. It would be difficult to use an arrow to target a bull's eye in space.

Has anyone ever acquired HIV from eating food cooked by an HIV-positive person?

No. HIV infection through food preparation has never occurred. Transmitting HIV is not a possibility.
