CDC Analysis Provides New Look at Disproportionate Impact of HIV and Syphilis Among U.S. Gay and Bisexual Men

A data analysis released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention underscores the disproportionate impact of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men in the United States.

The data, presented at CDC's 2010 National STD Prevention Conference, finds that the rate of new HIV diagnoses among men who have sex with men (MSM) is more than 44 times that of other men and more than 40 times that of women.

While CDC data have shown for several years that gay and bisexual men make up the majority of new HIV and new syphilis infections, CDC has estimated the rates of these diseases for the first time based on new estimates of the size of the U.S. population of MSM.

"While the heavy toll of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men has been long recognized, this analysis shows just how stark the health disparities are between this and other populations," said Kevin Fenton, M.D., director of CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. "It is clear that we will not be able to stop the U.S. HIV epidemic until every affected community, along with health officials nationwide, prioritize the needs of gay and bisexual men with HIV prevention efforts."

Research shows that a range of complex factors contribute to the high rates of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men.

Also, the risk of HIV transmission through receptive anal sex is much greater than the risk of transmission via other sexual activities, and some gay and bisexual men are relying on prevention strategies that may be less effective than consistent condom use.

Sixty percent of the STDs reported in the USA come from the homosexual population.

Complex? There may be a few things CDC needs to find out about, I bet the concept becomes much simpler.

The laws of the Bible are looking better all the time. If all of us only obeyed hem better though.

Homosexuals account for 60% of all syphilis cases, and 17% of all hospital admissions (other than for STDs) in the United States “Changes in Sexual Behavior and Incidence of Gonorrhea.” Lancet, April 25, 1987.

The monthly medical cost now (Nov 2006) for people with HIV from diagnosis until death is averages to be $2,100. The lifetime (now 24.2 years avg.) HIV care cost per person in optimal HIV care is now $618,900 per person. (Nov 2006 NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center Schackman , Freedberg, MGH;, Gebo Moore Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard Medical School, and BU School of Public Health).

Why on earth would any sane legislator or president want to force the Armed Forces to accept this disease-ridden population. Even if they kept it in their pants around base, a dubious proposition, the added medical costs for the military to be prepared to treat them would be huge.

No one now you mean, but God did not “propose” laws which always work toward our benefit when obeyed, and to our detriment when forsaken.

General Douglas MacArthur once stated,
“History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline.”

In the words of British lawyer and jurist Judge Devlin (1905 -1992), “an established morality is as necessary as good government to the welfare of society. Societies disintegrate from within more frequently than they are broken up by external pressures.”

And that is only dealing with temporal reality.

The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. (Psalms 9:17)

I’d be careful about using this as an argument against homosexuality per se. The reason homosexuals get more STDs is because more of them are sexually promiscuous and lead idiotic, hygiene-be-damned lives (as mandated by their sorry “culture”), not because homosexual acts themselves are any more “dirty” than heterosexual acts. If you look at gay magazines and “pride” events (if you have the stomach to do so), it’s always about sex, sex, sex—there is never an interest in caution and moderation (because that’s for evil, sexually repressed Christians).

Sleeping with the wrong gender doesn’t cause disease. Having sex with anyone who asks and thinking you’re too magical to face any negative consequences will do the trick.

All increases in immorality work toward the breakdown of the family and nation, on the physical, financial and spiritual level, while obedience to God promotes its well-being. See http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/RevealingStatistics.html for temporal costs of war against God.
