San Francisco health officials reported an alarming increase in new syphilis cases last year after years of declines.
New syphilis cases rose 55.8 percent in 2008 over the previous year, San Francisco public health officials reported.
The increase was significantly lower than the dramatic spikes reported early in the decade, when new infections increased 167 percent from 2001 to 2002. But last year's rise would seem to indicate an increase in unsafe sexual practices, which could lead to a rise in HIV infection rates.

“The packers have always been a public health hazard.”
Spoken like a Vikings fan. ;>D
Are they doing all of that stuff in those public sex tents Frisco wants to put up?
Form what little I know about syphilis, as it is in it’s final stages ,(usually in an older person who has left it untreated) the disease effects the mind, causing insanity.
Has anyone checked out Nancy? The Queen of San Francisco?
When will we fence the California cooties in?
What? They seem surprised?
Not Tigers fault. It is the fault of to much CO2!!!!!!!
These are Nancy Pelosi’s people. She marches in their parades and supports them. Check out the “folsom Street Fair”. The depravity is astonishing and disgusting.
SF had a hell of a time closing down the gay bathhouses in the early 1980s, though at the time an HIV infection was likely to be fatal. Today's gays aren't going to let a little thing like syphilis get in their way.
An STD outbreak in San Fran.
While I appreciate your sentiment, I am so sick of this state(California) being painted as being totally leftist. “Flyover Country” starts about 30 miles inland from the coast. The state, like the country as a whole is swayed left by the large concentrated urban areas.
We can’t be all that bad, after all you’re endorsing a Californian in your tag line and you’re on a web forum that was originated by a Californian in... you guessed it
Is San Fran f***ing themselves to death....?
I’d like to see some of the idiots who run SF define “unsafe.”
.....Syphilis - if left untreated can and will cause cardiac and brain infections........
Interesting fact. I thought folks lived there because they had brain infections already
... the city has stepped up efforts to promote syphilis awareness among the public and health providers, particularly dentists and hygienists. This includes the Healthy Penis campaign, complete with appearances this year of the 6-foot-tall costumed penis at fairs, parades and public events and his buddy, Phil the Syphilis Sore.
lol, good a place as any.
