HPV is harmless. The only threat is it MAY increase the chance of cervical cancer in some females. That`s why the vaccinations for it were only given to the girls/women in Aus.
Unfortunately what they were immunising us with made a lot of girls sick so they really need to fix that..
It sounds racist, but its the truth:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Census...
If you count in the Herpes infections, then all the beautiful girls will have it in high school, that corresponds roughly to 25%.
Isn`t the south very religious? And the lack of use of condoms would increase the spread.
Good catch, you beat me to it. The 25% infection rate for high school girls sounds highly suspicious, too. I suspect the U. S. map is based on the CDCs numbers and the next line is from MSNBC numbers...
Proud to say I`m 19 and have only slept with one person in my entire life and I`m still with him. I don`t see that changing any time soon either.
ky has a lower number than i expected. major skanks (male and female) in the city i grew up in. luckily i finally got out of there.
inb4 THIS IS GODS WILL FOR HAVING SEX BEOFRE MARRIAGE
They`re getting laid more.
And yeah, the 25% and 33% are backwards in the age-range pie chart is out of order.
I think it has got more to do with the poverty levels. I doubt that it`s the conservatives who are getting the STDs, rather, it`s the white trash, and the poor African American population.
Use a condom America.
Coincidence? I think NOT!
Totally, and my dad would kill me if I had sex.
And this is why you wait til marriage. Especially you ladies!
The difference might be explained by them referring to different things.
The chart under the map refers to reported cases per year. It`s likely that the map also refers to reported cases per year - the numbers seem to match up.
The difference between that and the bottom figures could be explained by two things;
i) STDs that last for more than a year. If you have 1000 new cases per year, after 5 years you have 5000 people infected.
ii) A very large estimate of unreported cases added on to the reported cases.
e.g. 40 cases of clamydia reported per year per 1000 people, estimate 160 unreported cases per year, estimate average of 2 years between infection and reporting...200 new cases per 1000 people per year, 40% of people infected at any given time.
Pretty sure it means the number of people who have had STDS, not everyone with an STD currently.
Also, if you`re trying to find the amount of STDs per 1000 by using that graph, you can`t just get the average. Not everyone who has an STD has to have them all; one person could have chlamydia and another could have gonorrhea. That`s 2 people, not 1.
Highest rate of STD`s is 97 per 1000. That`s 9.7% by my count. How does that equate to "1 in 5 people in the US has STD`s"?
