Other studies (and general observations) show that heritage Posterity Americans are having less sex and fewer children. Yet, preventable, treatable STDs are on the rapid ascent.
CASES OF THREE COMMON sexually transmitted diseases in the U.S. reached a record level in 2018, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Gonorrhea and cases of primary and secondary syphilis – the disease’s most infectious stages – both reached their highest levels since 1991 last year. The country’s 115,045 syphilis cases included more than 35,000 cases of primary and secondary syphilis, marking a 14.9% rate uptick from 2017. Meanwhile, there were more than 583,000 cases of gonorrhea, a rate increase of 5% from 2017, and the rate of reported chlamydia cases rose 3% to total more than 1.7 million in 2018 – nearly two-thirds of which were among people 15 to 24 years old, the report shows.
Together, the diseases accounted for more than 2.4 million cases – an all-time high since data on all three conditions was first collected in 1984.
Despite the recent increases among women, men who have sex with men saw the highest share of primary and secondary syphilis cases in 2018. But the report notes that rates of syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea rose among both males and females, all racial and ethnic groups and across the U.S., and that sustained efforts among public health and health care systems are needed to curb the rates.
“This is affecting the health of our nation,” Bolan says. “It takes a village, and we need all sectors really involved in trying to reverse these trends.”
A village? What is this data except for great proof of the great greatness of globalism and post-modern worldliness? Well, that and a sign that maybe, just maybe there is something terribly wrong. We probably need another government program or some more immigration or more debt or something.
