If you love to kiss your dog, then be prepared to get some unwanted retroviruses along with the dog drool!


What is Retrovirus?
The most infamous example of retro virus is HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. All retroviruses have the ability to incorporate their genetic material into that of their hosts.

The researchers claim that chances of getting retroviruses from Dog is six times less compared to humans. That means, it's more chances to get AIDS from sexual encounter with human than kissing a dog.

But what to learn from here!
STOP kissing your Dogs...
