It is estimated that one quarter of the one million Americans with the AIDS virus don't even know they're infected.  Testing for the virus that causes AIDS has been a politically charged issue since HIV came on the scene and into public awareness almost a quarter century ago.  Now comes news that testing for the AIDS virus could become part of routine physical exams for adults and teens if doctors follow new U.S. guidelines expected to be issued by this summer.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would apply this to every American aged 13 to 64.
