5 reasons why 3 STDs are roaring back in America

We don’t talk much about chlamydia, gonorrhea, or syphilis, in part because it can seem like they’re not big health issues anymore. But it turns out more and more Americans may be quietly suffering from these once nearly eliminated STDs.

According to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were nearly 2.3 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis reported in the United States in 2017 — the highest cumulative number ever recorded, and one that surpassed a 2016 record high.

The leaps in cases over the last few years are truly eye-popping. Between 2013 and 2017, the rate of:
  • Gonorrhea increased by 67 percent to 555,608 cases
  • Syphilis increased by 76 percent to 30,644 cases
  • Chlamydia increased by 22 percent to 1.7 million cases
To appreciate just how astonishing the trends are, consider that as recently as a decade ago, these STDs were at historic lows or near elimination, with more and better screening and diagnostics to help identify cases and get people into treatment.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

Louisiana is worst, Nevada second and California third.

Wait...D.C. is by far the worst.

I got it off a toilet seat.

I remember the joke from the 80s

Guy comes out of the office,  all happy.    Person asks, "Why are you so happy?"  and he says, "It's Syphilis!"
