In brief: No.

Hiv is spread in bodily fluids, including semen, vaginal secretions, blood, and breast milk.
People usually get hiv/aids by having unprotected sex with an infected partner, sharing needles with an infected person, or breastfeeding from an infected mother. You cannot get HIV from kissing or sharing a soda.

In brief: No

Hiv is not transmitted by day-to-day contact in the workplace, schools, or social settings.
Hiv is not transmitted through shaking hands, hugging, or a casual kiss. You cannot become infected from a toilet seat, a drinking fountain, a door knob, dishes, drinking glasses, food, or pets. See http://www.Cdc.Gov/hiv/resources/qa/transmission.Htm.
