Isit 100% that someone that has HPV 6.11, 16, 18 and it will cause cervical cancer or immunue system can fight it of the body if its strong?
Not very long: People often ask this question because of concerns if they pick up or prick themselves on a dirty needle. HIV does not survive well outside the body. Once the liquid (blood, semen, vaginal fluid, etc.) it is in has dried, the virus is dead and not transmissible. So an old dirty needle, if dry, cannot transmit HIV. Other viruses such as hep b and hep c are much hardier and can survive longer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Things that are of a foreign nature into the blood system or other bodily fluids; does everything no matter what it is get recorded into the DNA/RNA?
Not necessarily.: In fairness this question is a bit vague but I think you want to know if the body will remember being exposed to a foreign substance, like donor blood or a virus. Donor blood should not be a concern as it is matched to your body biochemically. Viral DNA can be integrated into the host genome, but not always. The body remembers exposure in the form of antibody proteins which are made by your DNA. ...Read more
If a person has HIV, is it a good idea for that person to consume supplements that are supposed to support or stimulate the immune system?
Be discerning: Get a gym membership instead. Exercise is better-evidenced as enhancing immunity than any pill. If you believed a tenth of the claims about herbals, minerals and so forth stimulating the immune system, you would be reading uncritically. If you are interested in supplements, get with an ethical, evidence-based holiday like Healthtap's Randy Baker in your own community. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
