    Georgia among worst states for chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis rates, CDC report says.

    I wonder why...:smugdon:

    According to a recent report from the Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Georgia ranked among the top five states in America with the highest rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis.

    Nationally, more than 2 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in the United States in 2016. It's the highest number ever.

    According to Bowan, the 2016 STD Surveillance Report, released in late September, shows which groups are most vulnerable.

    From the news release:
    • Youth ages 15-24 still make up most reported cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea and are now experiencing increases in syphilis cases.
    • Men who have sex with men, including gay or bisexual men, still face the highest rates of syphilis and HIV co-infection. Over the past five years, gonorrhea rates have increased as well.
    • Pregnant women face some of the harshest outcomes from untreated STDs with the increase in congenital syphilis cases. Cases have risen to rates unseen since 1998.
    Researchers used data from the U.S. Census, health departments and STD control programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, among others, for the analysis.

    According to the 2016 report, Georgia had some of the highest rates of reported chlamydia, gonorrhea and primary and secondary syphilis cases in the country.

    Read the full report at CDC.gov.

    Here’s how Georgia fared in 2016, according to the CDC report:
    • National rank for chlamydia: 5
    • Number of chlamydia cases: 62,776
    • Rate of chlamydia cases per 100,000 people: 614.6
    • National rank for gonorrhea: 3
    • Number of gonorrhea cases: 20,553
    • Rate of gonorrhea cases per 100,000 people: 201.2
    • National rank for primary and secondary syphilis: 4
    • Number of primary and secondary syphilis cases: 1,350
    • Rate of primary and secondary syphilis cases per 100,000 people: 13.2
    In 2015, Georgia was ranked sixth for chlamydia rates (570.8 per 100,000 people), seventh for gonorrhea rates (158.3 per 100,000) and second in the country for primary and secondary syphilis rates (14 per 100,000).

    I know I shouldn't laugh because STDs are seriously unfunny topic but that porn pic combined with @Ockydub reaction made me holler. I spit my coffee out. I guess the gays in Atlanta are really showing out.

    Atlanta is crazy but that goes for any major city with a large (black or minority) MSM population. The men in my generation are more free-spirited and are more impulsive when it comes to satisfying their sexual urges. I remember talking to a group of HIV positive men in Atlanta while planning a series of events with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) and it was only myself and another gentleman that were HIV negative. The men that were HIV positive were surprised and said that dating in ATL can be challenging because finding someone who does not have HIV is a task in and of itself.

    I just think that everyone should practice safe sex using condoms for sure and then you can utilize Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) at your discretion. Some people are against using PrEP because they skeptical about what the drug does to their body.

    I do just think this is all unfortunate. It makes me more hesitant to engage in sexual activity. All the diseases out there can make anyone very paranoid.

    And then Georgia has this:
    Georgia lawmaker suggests quarantining people with HIV

    Stupid bitch. I wish there was an ability to lobotomize her instead. And so sorry bitch that people with HIV are just not dying like flies as they did in the past and are causing you to be so frightened because, you know, they are actually staying alive, cunt.
