(image) A study published earlier this month concluded that the people with HIV have as high as a two-fold increased risk of developing melanoma (a serious type of skin cancer) when compared to the general population, adding to the already heady list of non-AIDS-defining cancers known to disproportionately affect this population.

Watching his CNN interview with Anderson Cooper on Monday was simply a sad, sad spectacle, one which could easily dismissed as a misbegotten shot at redemption by an out-of-touch, armchair racist.

Sun, 13 Apr 2014 05:20:41 +00002014-04-13T05:20:41Z
