Default STD's in the UK

The numbers aren't looking good. The chances of reversing recent demographic trends seems to be slipping away.

Quote:
The number of diagnoses of the sexual transmitted infection gonorrhoea has increased by an “unprecedented” 25 per cent in the past year, the Health Protection Agency has revealed.
Gonorrhea, the second most common bacterial STI in the UK, is becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotic treatment and Britain faces “the very real danger of the untreatable gonorrhoea in the future”, health experts said.
........

Although the dramatic increase in gonorrhoea cases was partly attributed to more sensitive testing, the HPA said that too many people were still putting themselves at risk, with gay men and young heterosexual adults were the groups causing the greatest concern. Instances of gonorrhoea were up by 61 per cent among men who have sex with men and young heterosexual adults, between 15 to 24-years-old, represented 57 per cent if all new gonorrhoea diagnoses.

Dr Gwenda Hughes, head of STI surveillance at the HPA, said: “We anticipated some increase in diagnoses due to improvements in testing in recent years, but not on the scale seen here,” she said. “Too many people are putting themselves at risk of STIs and serious health problems by having unsafe sex.”
........
Gonorrhoea can have serious effects if left untreated. Young women with gonorrhoea can develop pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which can cause chronic abdominal pain and also lead to infertility.
New diagnoses of syphilis were up by 10 per cent to 2,915 and herpes was up five per cent to 31,154. Although the number of new cases of Chlamydia was down by two per cent to 186,196, Dr Hughes said this was most likely a reflection of fewer young people getting tested.

For some reason after the 80's when AIDS came to prominence, sexual education fell off the radar. When I look at some people I know in their 20's who are family members, their stories of sexual promiscuity are shocking, even among the girls. As Aquina has pointed out, some of these diseases are becoming incurable and that is frightening.

Without starting a 'us and them' thread the same is happening in the US, which now has the highest infection rate in the industrialized world.

In Europe there is no excuse for it as we tend to be more liberal in sexual education.

The strand thats referred to I believe is already prominent in Japan. Its uncurable or highly resistant to standard meds that were used to cure it before. This is what happens. These organism adapt to survive just like everything else.

The only cure is to stop %$%$$% around even then your partner might be

Take your pick from any of these, you'll find that the UK, if not top is pretty damn near: *Excluding USA in most instances


Alcoholism

Drug addiction

Violent crime

Teenage pregnancy

Divorce

Domestic violence

Obesity

There is more to that list, can't be bothered but I now hope you now have a bit more ammo with which to post your deep and meaningful topics on.
