Many American young men infected with AIDS virus

So many of America’s young — one of every 92 young men and one of every 33 young black men — are believed to have the AIDS virus that it threatens to become a deadly “rite of passage” in this century, a scientist said.

The sobering statistics illuminate the government’s warnings that AIDS is becoming more of a threat to the nation’s youth, even as it tapers off in many older people.

In January, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that AIDS was the No. 1 killer of people ages 25 to 44 in 1993.

The HIV virus that causes AIDS can lack symptoms for 10 years, meaning some of these people likely were infected as teenagers.

People between the ages of 18-25 experienced a rapid rise in HIV infection between 1986 and 1992, during the same time when older American’s risk of HIV infection level leveled off.
