1 million cases of chlamydia were reported in the United States last year

ATLANTA - More than 1 million cases of chlamydia were reported in the
United States last year — the most ever reported for a sexually transmitted
disease, federal health officials said Tuesday.

"A new U.S. record,"
said Dr. John M. Douglas Jr. of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

More bad news: Gonorrhea rates are jumping again after hitting a record
low, and an increasing number of cases are caused by a "superbug" version
resistant to common antibiotics, federal officials said Tuesday.

Syphilis is rising, too. The rate of congenital syphilis — which can
deform or kill babies — rose for the first time in 15 years - By MIKE STOBBE, AP Medical Writer


Yah think maybe it's time to end the "Abstinence Only Education" farce and the war on science and health and actually teach people about safe sex and condoms?

Hi,

1 in 4 sexually active teenagers become infected with an STD every year, in the United States alone. Now, more than ever, we need to join together to fight this growing issue. As I read through your website, it is clear that you share the same passion for STD/STI awareness. We here, at Disease.com, understand the importance of STD/STI prevention and treatments. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. We can not reach every teenager, but together we can try.
If you need more information please mail me with the subject line as your URL.

Thnak You,
