Forward An Untrue Statement May Cause More Harm Than Good

Yes, I personally came across this mail in my mailbox this morning. It sounded very urgent and important and needed to be forwarded to all my list. The content read like this:

" A 10 year old boy, had eaten pineapple?about 15 days back, and fell sick, from the day he had eaten. Later when he had his Health check done... doctors diagnosed that he had AIDS.

His parents couldn't believe it...Then the entire family under went a Checkup... none of them suffered from Aids. So the doctors checked again with the boy if he had eaten out...The boy said "yes". He had pineapple that evening.

Immediately a group from Mallya hospital went to the pineapple vendor to check. They found the pineapple seller had a cut on his finger while cutting the pineapple , his blood had spread into
the fruit.

When they had his blood checked...the guy was suffering from AIDS......but he himself was NOT aware.Unfortunately the boy is suffering from it now.

Please take care while u eat on the road side and pls fwd this mail to your dear one."

Somehow I found the content was unconvincing and unambiguous. Then I made a search. To my surprise, I found the truth about it. Continue here....

The moral of the story is to check the authentically of the story before forward it out to your list.
