Why do you ask?: You're really asking whether someone handling your food with a bleeding wound might infect you. What we do know is that during the years in which there was no treatment, HIV-positive people would infect family members without sex or needle sharing. It just didn't happen. Life's too difficult already for you to be harboring these dark ideas. Your physician can help if this is a persistent fear.
