Drugs Used by Homosexuals Weaken Immune System
The spread of AIDS in latter years has focused more attention on the significance of immunosuppression. Dr. R. Schoenlal, at the Department of Veterinary Pathology, University of London discussed how during the mid 1970s, homosexuals were frequently using a sexual enhancement drug known as "poppers." This drug resulted in the user ingesting large quantities of the chemical akyl nitrate. It has been found that this compound can weaken immune system function, thereby increasing susceptibility to the AIDS virus.
