Flames aren't necessary.  There are _not_ a high number of people who are
HIV positive who didn't indulge in risky behaviours.  There are a
_significant_ number, I agree, and there are more risk behaviours than I
mentioned - but I'm not a Dental Assistant, either, so that rules out a
whole lot of possible sources of contagion.
