Dude, the problem in Minnesota has more to do with subpar higienic conditions and that wrong tests were being carried out.

You're right about the wrong tests being carried out by the docs.
Now, I'm all for it for testing, but you, I, all of us need to be a bit more educated about this, and have some perspective.
I can be tested for HIV today, and if the test comes negative, it simply means that for the past 6 months I have had no detectable levels of the HIV virus. HIV takes up to 6 months to set in to levels that can be detected.
I don't think anyone feels that testing is a bulletproof defense against transmittable diseases. Believe it or not you're not the only one who's read those bold print pamphlets on STD's at the walk in clinic.
Negative results in a test simply means that the chances of you being infected are far less.
Do you do that? Would you? Have any of you ever even thought of this?
I don't control my sparring partners hygienic or sexual habits, though, and that's why I'd like testing.
