Worried about ebola then read this study that will shock you


The eight most common STDs in the U.S. are chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B virus (HBV), genital herpes, HIV, human papillomavirus (HPV), syphilis and trichomoniasis. About 50.5 million of these current infections are in men, and 59.5 million are in women, according to the CDC's 2013 report, in which the researchers looked at 2008 data.

Each year, new cases of STDs cost nearly $16 billion in direct medical costs. Fifty percent of these new infections occur in young people, ages 15-24, even though this age group represents only a quarter of people who have had sex..

Sexually transmitted diseases are one major group of diseases that make for ongoing hidden epidemics: In the United States alone, there are nearly 20 million cases of new sexually transmitted infections yearly, from just eight viruses and bacteria, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

My fiance is a Registered Nurse and that's exactly what she did for her son. Now that's he's an adult I doubt he sleeps around, but his slob of a girlfriend could be considered an STD on her own.

Actually I think if you combine all of those STD's the % is actually higher. 40% of sexually active adults have some form of herpes or HPV alone. Makes you think what is actually an STD as opposed to what is the norm.

Thank god for porn!!!! Lol

And young people wonder if there is any upside to marriage? Lol. Even though sex is sporadic, BJ's are biannual and arse play is outta the question monogamy and being married can be a benefit!

Lucky people are not getting rounded up for this sort of thing as it might be considered a plague of sorts and i am sure Obama has a law somewhere for this

These figures are a eye opener , just walk down any street and think every third person you pass is infected with something

As of 2010 the population is 310, 232,863. That means 1/3 of the US population has an STD. Yikes!

My lil sis got angry with me for having that type of discussion with her 15 yr old son. She makes no sense, she had him when she was 15! She of all people should know how important this is.

My children are slightly younger and I still drill in why this type of hygiene is important.

If you take all the figures for older people and young children out of the 310 million figure it would come out at 1 in every 1. something .

very scary it is

“More than 50 million people in the United States have herpes Type 2, and the vast majority of them don’t know they have it,” she said. “If everybody went out and got tested, would it change anything? No. Just knowing you have the antibodies shouldn’t necessarily drive much of anything because you should be practicing safer sex anyway. You just never know, and your partner never knows.”

(May 2011) Half of men ages 18 to 70 who participated in a study of genital human papillomavirus (HPV) in Brazil, Mexico, and the United States were infected with some form of the virus, according to the "HPV in Men" (HIM) study recently published in The Lancet.

If those numbers are true I am incredibly lucky. I have been around with some loose women. I tested clear about a year ago.

Well,
I suppose you could do the reverse and try the scare tactic for safe sex?

Frequently asked questions on Ebola virus disease (WHO)

"2. How do people become infected with the virus?

In the current outbreak in West Africa, the majority of cases in humans have occurred as a result of human-to-human transmission.

Infection occurs from direct contact through broken skin or mucous membranes with the blood, or other bodily fluids or secretions (stool, urine, saliva, semen) of infected people."

Talk about a fearmongering article! I'm not buying this. If this is true. I, and several others I know, should have been dead or hospitalized a long time ago. Instead. I, and they, are clean. Gotta keep sex dirty, and people feeling guilty though. Don't want anyone enjoying what comes natural to our species, too much. (Sorry. Not aimed at you, OP)

Revelation 9
20 The people who survived these PLAGUES still did not turn to me and change the way they were thinking and acting. If they had, they would have stopped worshiping demons and idols made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood, which cannot see, hear, or walk. 21 They did not turn away from committing murder, practicing witchcraft, SEXUAL immortality, or stealing.


It appears the bible predicts sexual plagues from which none will repent. I think it's safe to call STD's a sexual plague, and promiscuity continues to be the way for most, unfortunately. So it looks like this prophecy has come true.

Maybe loving monogamous relationships are the way God intends after all?

I couldn't have made my point any better than you just did. Thank you.
