CDC: 110,197,000 Venereal Infections in U.S.

Rest of headline: Nation Creating New STIs Faster Than New Jobs or College Grads

According to new data released by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 19.7 million new venereal infections in the United States in 2008, bringing the total number of existing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the U.S. at that time to 110,197,000.
The 19.7 million new STIs in 2008 vastly outpaced the new jobs and college graduates created in the United States that year or any other year on record, according to government data. The competition was not close.

The STI study referenced by the CDC estimated that 50 percent of the new infections in 2008 occurred among people in the 15-to-24 age bracket. In fact, of the 19,738,800 total new STIs in the United States in 2008, 9,782,650 were among Americans in the 15-to-24 age bracket.

Good grief, in any other time wouldn't this be considered an epidemic? Wouldn't the government take action beyond just telling people just to use a condom which don't seem to be working too good in any case?

Sexual revolution, anyone?

We're getting to the point where having sex is like playing Russian roulette with your health. Is it any wonder why this generation is embracing the homosexuals? These kids have the same diseases as they do now.
