Thanks for query.

Do not worry. This can not transmit HIV.

The virus is very much sensitive to heat; heat kills it readily. When the food is cooked high temperature it can kills the virus if any. Again this is not a mode of transmission of HIV.

The commonest mode of transmission are,
1. Unprotected sex with infected person
2. Using contaminated syringe and needles
3. Taking blood from infected person

Now your second query, You have not written what is wrong in EEG. Please write some more details about the problem that you have and the report of EEG. I will be able to provide you with the necessary information then.

Awaiting for your reply.
