Why is AIDS such a serious illness?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Why is AIDS such a serious illness?       
Why is AIDS such a serious illness? AIDS is a unique disease because it attacks the immune system that is intended to defend the body against infection. The HIV virus that causes AIDS destroys lymphocytes so the body cannot fight off infection.

The HIV virus does not cause the symptoms of the disease, but the body is now defenceless and can be attacked by other disease organisms. Some powerful drugs can now delay the destructive effects of infection by the HIV virus.

Many newborn babies are fed on their mother's milk.This contains special antibodies which help boost the baby's immune system.
