HIV Infection Quickly Speeds Up Aging, Reports New Blockbuster Study

say recent results from a study show HIV quickly impacts a person's DNA and accelerates biological changes similar to the natural aging process, including death. "The findings suggest that new HIV infection may rapidly cut nearly five years off an individual’s life span relative to an uninfected person," a UCLA press release states.The disease's maturing effect on cells happens within two to three years of HIV infection, according the university researchers. Some of the results of the accelerated aging process can manifest in heart and kidney disease, frailty, and cognitive difficulties.It's not clear how antiretroviral regimens may affect the aging process caused by HIV, but previous studies have shown it happens regardless of medications — and that the powerful medicines that keep HIV at bay may also contribute to accelerated aging.UCLA researchers initially studied 102 men, collecting blood samples six months or less before they became infected with HIV and again two to three years after infection.

Bette Midler is single-handedly tanking ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ with her tweets and OMFG what a disaster

unfortunate tweets of late.She’s been on a tear this past week, spouting transphobic rhetoric and then only making it worse in her attempts to clarify what she meant—not to mention her knock on the Supreme Court, which many have called out as racist and Islamophobic.WOMEN OF THE WORLD! We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives and even of our name! They don’t call us “women” anymore; they call us “birthing people” or “menstruators”, and even “people with vaginas”! Don’t let them erase you! Every human on earth owes you!— bettemidler (@BetteMidler) July 4, 2022It’s all been a bit difficult to stomach, especially for fans who have long considered Midler to be an ally to the LGBTQ community. Between her work on Broadway and roles in iconic films like Beaches and The First Wives Club, some might even call the actress a gay icon.

He disinvited his gay brother from his wedding, so why is the Internet siding with him?
Bold fashion choices are practically a queer birthright, but every so often, a little self-editing is called for.A soon-to-be-married straight man uninvited his gay brother, Sam, from the wedding after seeing Sam’s planned choice of attire — a rainbow-colored tuxedo.Sam called the snub “homophobic,” but many online feel the groom was justified in his actions.To be clear, the bride and groom set a “black and white only” dress code for their big day, so showing up in a rainbow tux does seem like a fairly big cry for attention. Plus, you never want to upstage the bride.Sharing the story on the ever-so-popular AITA (Am I The A**hole) Reddit forum, the groom said he was initially excited to have Sam and his boyfriend Jack at the wedding.Related: She brought a homophobic date to gay cousin’s engagement party. It didn’t end well.That excitement was dramatically dampened when Sam sent his brother a photo of his outfit a week before the event.“Initially I thought he was joking so I said ‘lmao.’ He was very hurt and told me to go f*** myself.” He added he’s always been comfortable with whatever Sam wore in the past, but that given the circumstance, it felt inappropriate.The groom told his brother “he could come if he didn’t wear the outfit,” but Sam dug his rainbow-colored heels in the sand and refused.“He said it cost a lot of money and he didn’t want it to go to waste because ‘I was being homophobic,'” the groom wrote.“I am very much not homophobic,” he added.
