Daily Prompt: Fifteen Minutes

“You have 15 minutes to address the whole world live (on television or radio — choose your format). What would you say?” –The Daily Post

I’d talk about HIV, AIDS, prevention, and how it works. Since I have been doing extensive research on HIV for the past few days, it’s the one issue I’d be comfortable discussing in front of everyone. I’m not a bio major by any means so I don’t understand something and maybe someone can help explain this to me: how do cells not recognize that DNA has been altered once HIV adds it’s own genetic coding? Wouldn’t the genetic material suddenly be a different size than normal? Why can’t the cell pick up on this alteration and terminate itself?
