'Stealth' gonorrhoea on the rise


www.newscientist.com

"Stealth" strains of gonorrhoea that fail to show up in tests are on the rise across the world, researchers have discovered, because the tests used by doctors to identify the bacteria look for an enzyme no longer present in those strains.

The rising prevalence of these strains was found in Australia, New Zealand, England, Scotland and Denmark. The findings should prompt clinics to change practice and use at least two tests that work in different ways to detect the infection, the scientists say.

Given the sex crazed mentality of our planet, I am not surprised that STD's like gonorrhoea havent started to mutate sooner and become harder to detect.

With the surge in internet porn, and all of the sex hungry men surveying the internet for something to satisfy their urge, this was bound to happen sometime. Anyh thoughts?

Two:

You don't have to have a penis to be a horndog.

There is no "sex craze". Humans are sexually motivated animals. It's just a fact of life.

Agreed APC. Humans ARE sexually motivated animals, but dont you think that the internet has increased their sexual motivation at all?

And yes, if I didnt have a penis, I would still be a horndog...

If anything it has decreased it... excessive masturbation reduces testosterone.

If there even is anything to blame for this mutation, it is our enormous population.
