Teaching our children about the basics of the disease can help to reduce their fears. AIDS, or Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, is the final stage of a disease which causes an abnormal reduction in the body's natural ability to fight disease and infection. Because of this, most people who contract AIDS will eventually die due to ?AIDS related causes.? This can occur in a period anywhere from 5-15 years after exposure to HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), the cause of AIDS.

How to hit a golf ball

Although golfers end the day on the 18th green, their day begins on a tee box.
