Syphilis spikes in San Franscisco
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | Dec 5, 2009 | Victoria Coliver

Posted on 12/06/2009 4:56:36 PM PST by Neoliberalnot

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.

Once again, perverts, queers, deviants, and sex offenders costing public health billions, and, homosexuals retain their position as the #1 vector for the spreading of human infections. Such pride is difficult to imagine.

We’re not supposed to make any connection between the types of people and behaviors in San Francisco, and rates of STD infections. (sarcasm)

A rise in syphilis cases is an indicator of a rise in all other sexually transmitted diseases - herpes, gonorrhea, Chlamydia and HIV/AIDS... Syphilis - if left untreated can and will cause cardiac and brain infections...

Looks like the fine folks of San Francisco are making a bright future for themselves...

New HIV drugs are keeping the perverts alive longer to spread more diseases.

And now Obama is letting people with AIDS immigrate here too, which will really drive up the number of sexually transmitted diseases.

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.

Note the qualifiers "would seem" and "could lead", as if there is some great mystery to be investigated. Unsafe sex practices in San Fransicko? How Unexpected!

Before you know it there will be a story about how it "would seem" that wild spending "could lead" to increased deficits. How 'Weekly World News'!

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?

The vast majority of early syphilis cases - about 97 percent - occurred in men, and more than 90 percent involved men who had sex with men, according to the Health Department. More than 70 percent of cases occurred among men who are HIV positive.

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.

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
California.

... 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.

From the article:

“We don’t have a single explanation to tie it to”

and later in the same article:

“The vast majority of early syphilis cases - about 97 percent - occurred in men, and more than 90 percent involved men who had sex with men, according to the Health Department.”

Let’s see. Through the use of deductive reasoning with the evidence provided the most obvious conclusion would be -— oh wait it’s not something scientifically evident as global warming.

I've never been to San Francisco, or even California for that matter, but from all I read it must be a real $h!+hole.

Google what tertiary syphilis did to Scarface Al Capone.

The Feds released him from Alcatraz early because he was already too mentally incapacitated from syphilis to be a threat to society any more.

Capone spent his final days at his estate fishing in his swimming pool.
