How AIDS transmit

Hi all,
A 10 year old boy, had eaten pineapple about 15 days back, and fell sick, from the day he had eaten. Later when he had his Health check done... doctors diagnosed that he had AIDS.
His parents couldn't believe it...Then the entire family under went a checkup... none of them suffered from Aids. So the doctors checked again with the boy if he had eaten out...The boy said "yes". He had pineapple that evening. Immediately a group from Mallya hospital went to the pineapple vendor to check. They found the pineapple seller had a cut on his finger while cutting the pineapple; his blood had spread into the fruit. When they had his blood checked...the guy was suffering from AIDS ..... but he himself was NOT aware. Unfortunately the boy is suffering from it now.
- A chain email I received from My friend.

Initially I thought it is just another hoax email which passes from one net user to another. I read the Aids Transmission story. I was not sure whether AIDS transmit through Blood. I opened NACO website ( National Aids Control Organization ) . According to NACO , AIDS is transmitted through
blood, semen , vaginal fluid , breast milk , other body fluids containing blood .

DO you have following questions in mind ?

What is HIV ?
What is AIDS ?
What causes AIDS?
How can children and young people be protected from HIV?
Can injections transmit HIV infection?
Is there a treatment for HIV/AIDS?
Is it safe to work with someone infected with HIV?
What Can I Do To Avoid Getting HIV Infection?
