CDC: Sexually-transmitted diseases reach all-time high in U.S.

There were more than two million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis reported nationwide in 2016, "the highest number ever," according to the CDC’s annual Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report

Sexually transmitted diseases rose to an all-time high in the United States last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said this week, creating a threat that’s challenging the health field.

There were more than two million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis reported nationwide in 2016.

That was “the highest number ever,” according to the CDC’s annual Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report released Tuesday.

Most of the new cases diagnosed (1.6 million) were chlamydia, the report said, which affects both sexes. But gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) led in some statistics for both gonorrhea and syphilis.

While gonorrhea increased among men and women in 2016 (to 470,000 cases), the report said the sharpest increases were among men at 22 percent.

It further stated, “Research suggests that a large share of new gonorrhea cases are occurring among MSM. These trends are particularly alarming in light of the growing threat of drug resistance to the last remaining recommended gonorrhea treatment.”

“MSM also bear a great syphilis burden,” the CDC report continued. “MSM make up a majority of syphilis cases, and half of MSM diagnosed with syphilis were also living with HIV – pointing to the need to integrate STD and HIV prevention and care services.”

Syphilis rates increased overall from 2015 to 2016 by nearly 18 percent to nearly 28,000. Most of these cases are among men, according to the CDC, particularly gay, bisexual and other MSM.

Along with gay and bisexual men, the epidemic is also accelerating in women and infants.

There was a 36 percent increase in rates of syphilis among women and a 28 percent increase (more than 600 cases) in syphilis among newborns (congenital syphilis) during the time of the report. These led to “more than 40 deaths and severe health complications among newborns,” it said.

    Is anyone surprised? People are being taught in word and deed to “hook up” with reckless abandon. We as a nation are seeing the physical illness (in part) which results. If we could see the spiritual illness of our nation we would be horrified.

    The GILBERT Gaystapo desperately want to sexualize the youngest and most vulnerable in our society, and Force the rest of us to pander to their intrinsically disordered perversions. They are pushing for Jail Time 4 Thought Crime, and if Senator Wiener from Sodom by the Sea gets his way, it will lead to a Year in Prison for the Un-Good, and eventually push such draconian pogroms in to society at large.

    Meantime, the creation and spread of ever newer Treatment Resistant strains of STDs is a direct result of the Conga Line of Buggery, where Homo-Anal Coprophiles are using treatment to get just well enough to rejoin the party, without ever curing the underlying pathology.

    This, combined with the practice of “Bug Chasing”, where said…

    This, combined with the practice of “Bug Chasing”, where said light hearted and gaily happy Males (XY) deliberately seek to become infected, thus ‘enjoying’ the full raw coprophile lifestyle without any concerns for avoiding the spread of the alphabet soup of nightmares they are infected with
    As these STDs grow stronger they will spread through ever less intimate contact, turning public accommodations like gyms, pools, toilets etc. in to breeding grounds for deadly untreatable diseases

    No wonder they have to resort to Prison for those who would tell the truth about the massive harm to society done by the tiny but monomaniacal minority of deeply disturbed deviants.

    Use the wrong pronoun, go to jail
    If California legislators have…

    Pander or Perish in Jail = the ‘gospel’ of the GILBERT Gaystapo

    Activist Dem judge rules LGBT mandate trumps 1st Amendment

    Says Christians’ refusal to promote homosexuality akin to posting ‘White Applicants Only’ sign

    Penalties for violation include payment of a civil penalty to the state; triple compensatory damages; punitive damages of up to $25,000; a criminal penalty of up to $1,000; and up to 90 days in jail.

    Much of this is due to our president’s promotion of irresponsible and unholy lifestyles.

    • Since it is a 2016 report and Trump was not in office, you must be referring to President Obama. Either way, an ignorant comment.

    • Quite possibly the stupidest post I have ever read on this site… “Trump is to blame”…..ha ha ha ha ha ha

    The virginal students rate significantly and consistently better in nearly all health-related behaviors and measures than their sexually active peers
    Teens who have sexual contact with the same or both sexes have remarkably lower percentages of healthy behaviors overall than their heterosexually active peers

    The shameful groundwork for the Treatment Resistant STD Crisis was laid on the doorstep of the buggery barns falsely called ‘Happy Bath-Houses’
    SEE
    http://cal-catholic.com/california-catholic-conference-a-history-2/
    Bishop Cummins, say eyewitnesses at the meeting, explained to the group how he and the CCC worked behind the scenes to pass AB 489 – the Consenting Adult Sex Bill, which went into effect in January 1976, “made gay bathhouses and the sex that took place within them legal for the first time.”
    In 1984, because of the AIDS epidemic associated with the bathhouses, the San Francisco Health Department tried to close the baths but was unsuccessful.

    “This could be the greatest victory of the movement,” said one gay activist

    Notorious ‘bendover comic’ Tommy ‘TP’ Ammiano led the way in suppressing information about Treatment Resistant MRSA, because reporting identified politically un-good Sources:

    “Hospitals now must report serious staph cases to officials
    http://www.sfgate.com/health/article/Hospitals-now-must-report-serious-staph-cases-to-3294265.php
    California for the first time is requiring that hospitals report… alarming increase in drug-resistant staph infections that are now believed to kill 19,000 Americans a year.

    Until now, there has been no state requirement for reporting staph infections. As a result, disease trackers have had a hard time calculating the severity of the problem… the most feared bug… A particularly virulent strain of…

  9. Michael McDermott says:

    San Francisco Supervisor Tom Ammiano said that sort of reporting is potentially troubling…
    San Francisco General Hospital physicians reported in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine that a variant of USA 300, resistant to six antibiotics, was “especially common among men who have sex with men.”

    That report, and the subsequent media coverage of it around the world, deeply angered some members of the city’s gay community. Ammiano denounced a report in The Chronicle about it as “irresponsible” and “homophobic,”
    He joined with Supervisors Bevan Dufty and Aaron Peskin in a mock hand-washing demonstration, where the men soaped up their hands and rinsed them in an inflatable plastic swimming pool rolled into the City Hall…

    President Trump as citizen Trump bragged about his sexual exploits and his promiscuity long before he was elected president! Many young people listened to his tales of conquest as a frequent guest on the Howard Stern show. Pay attention folks!
