How is AIDs transmitted from person to person?

Many people have problems understanding ho the virus is transmitted. Some think that any contact with a person or some of their germs will cause you to develop the virus. That is not tru. You cannot develop the virus through food, air, water our insects. No cases have resulted from sharing eating utensils, bathrooms, locker rooms living space, or classrooms. There are not many ways that AIDs/Hiv can be transmitted. "The most common way to transmit AIDs is by sexual intercourse especially between homosexual and bisexual men." Other ways to recieve the virus are by direct contact with infected blood or perinatal, which is transmission from an infected women to her fetus baby.
