According to new data released by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 19.7 million new venereal infections in the United States in 2008, bringing the total number of existing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the U.S. at that time to 110,197,000.

Dems at work, again. :-)
So we don’t use STD anymore?
But, how can this BE? Condoms prevent sexually transmitted diseases! I know because government experts told me so! /SARCASM
This epidemic is ignored by the MSM.
However it is the reason the Democrat sales job on “health care” was so effective among young people.
When I was in my 20s, nobody gave a rip about health insurance.
Nothing more abortions and same sex marriage equality shouldn’t fix. < /sarc >
Should we assume that some people have more than one disease? Because I doubt that 110 million different people have STDs.
One Third of the U.S. population? I don’t think so.
Who says we don’t make anything here any more?
Into the 1970s, persons who contracted STDs were supposed to be registered AND list the partners they’d had sex with so they could be notified. That seemed to end with the rise of AIDS.
How’s that working out?
Just like abortion, those who engage in frequent anonymous sex are more likely to contract again and again.
You’d have to, otherwise half of adults have them.... hm, like 53% or so.....
Do you believe the number? 110 million plus?
You know some gubmint numbers are fudged, but CDC?
Why ever for?
STDs in retirement communities are supposed to be on the rise.
Increasing the number of infected persons is one way to remove the stigma of infection from a social disease.
no. come on. 1 in 3 people if it was 1 per person.
We are a sick nation with leaders who intentionally deceive us and lead us head-long into the path of total destruction all the while telling each other how wonderful diversity is and how great everything is.
Meanwhile the economy teeters on collapse. The inner cities are a breath away from chaos. Illegitimacy is at an all-time high. Families are broken. Children do not know who their fathers are. Brothers rage against brothers.
But hey, Obama and the corrupt MSM keeps telling us that is we only have more condoms. If we only embrace homosexuality. If we only ditch our faith in God. If we only spend trillions more. If we only provide sexual training to kindergartners.
If we only do these things then things can only get “better”.
The road to Hell is wide. The path to righteousness is narrow.
>>> Why ever for?
Besides more fed money to CDC, that is.
It’s not as bad as it sounds. Madonna alone accounts 26,340,119 of them.
If there truely are 110,197,000 cases of VD in the United States, and since the 2012 census states that there are 313,914,040 persons in the USA, this is one third of the entire population have a VD.
There are now laws, regulations and social stigmas associated with all of those things.
We should all just report to the local landfill and bury ourselves.
The number is for total infections, not infected individuals, see quote from article.
“In general, CDC estimated the total number of infections in the calendar year, rather than the number of individuals with infection, since one person can have more than one STI at a given time (e.g., HPV and chlamydia) or more than one episode of a single STI (e.g., repeat chlamydia infection).
The most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States in 2008 was human papillomavirus (HPV), which caused 14,100,000 estimated infections that year.
After HPV, in order of magnitude, according to the study, new STIs in the U.S. in 2008 included 2,860,000 new Chlamydia infections; 1,090,000 new Trichomoniasis infections; 820,000 new Gonorrhea infections; 776,000 new Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 (HSV-2) infections; 55,400 new syphilis infections; 41,400 new HIV infections; and 19,000 new Hepatitis B infections.
The total of 110,197,000 existing STIs in the United States in 2008 included 79,100,000 HPV infections, 24,100,000 HSV-2 infections; 3,710,000 Trichomoniasis infections; 1,579,000 Chlamydia infections; 908,000 HIV infections; 422,000 Hepatitis B infections; 270,000 Gonorrhea infections; and 117,000 Syphilis infections.”
Fortunately, we now have the HPV vaccine, and cures for a number of these infections.
Yes, many people have at least 3 at the same time (HPV, Herpes, Gonorrhea). And don’t forget people with HIV, which is under-reported these days.
That’s what I’m assuming. They’re gathering and adding reported cases. Not correlating whether you had individuals with a different STD in every orifice.
didnt Heffner just say he has had sex with over a thousand women?
thats what? a couple a year since he reached the age of majority?
Maybe they’re counting yeast infections which are NOT stds.
It's not like there's no choice. Chooz before you scrooz.
Those are FRECKLES! Give the gal a break; she’s way in over her head as it is.
And those infected are growing dramatically amoung senior citizens as well.
And that makes the > 110 million number pretty useless.
There is no way we know how often a certain infection recur in the same person.
Looks to the Lords way of solving a parenting, or lack of a parent problem.
The gub’mint wants to label everything else, so how about labelling this. Right on the forehead. Fair warning and informed consent. I’m surprised Bloomberg hasn’t already done this in NYC.
They are if one believes the studies, which were done by, who else, the CDC.
From a 2011 article:
In the five years from 2005 to 2009, the number of reported cases of syphilis and chlamydia among those 55 and older increased 43 percent, according to an Orlando Sentinel analysis of data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In the Sunbelt where retirees have formed large communities, the rise was even more dramatic.
For instance, in Arizona’s Maricopa and Pima counties home to large retirement communities just outside Phoenix the percent of reported cases of syphilis and chlamydia increased twice as fast as the national average from 2005 to 2009. Reported cases were up 87 percent among those 55 and older in those counties.
In Central Florida, where The Villages and other retirement communities sprawl across several counties, reported cases of syphilis and chlamydia increased 71 percent among those 55 and older in that same period. And South Florida saw a 60 percent rise in those two sexually transmitted infections among the same age group, according to the Florida Department of Health.
In Riverside County, Calif., home to retirement mecca Palm Springs, reported cases were up 50 percent over the five-year span, according to data from that county’s health department.
The reported cases of syphilis and chlamydia among older adults outpaced the nation’s average, according to the analysis. Among all age groups nationwide, reported cases of syphilis increased 60 percent between 2005 and 2009, while in the 55 to 64 age group it increased 70 percent. Meanwhile, the incidences of chlamydia rose 27 percent among all ages, and double that among those age 55 to 64.
The factors driving the rise of STDs in the older set include Americans living longer, healthier lives and a new class of medications, which include Viagra, making more sex possible. Many older adults didn’t get the safe-sex messages that younger generations received, say experts, so their condom use is lower. In addition, more seniors are living in group retirement communities where there’s more socializing.
“These seniors may lose a spouse, then get lonely,” said Dr. Jason Salagubang, a geriatrician on staff at Florida Hospital Apopka. “They’re living in retirement communities with others in the same boat, and sparks fly.”
Or as another article from stated (link-http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/Sex-Crazed-Seniors-See-Rise-in-STDs-121993289.html):
A new study has found that the “free love” generation of the 1960s is still living up to its name.
According to an analysis of Centers for Disease for Control and Prevention data, South Florida saw a 60 percent rise in chlamydia and syphilis among those age 55 and older between the years 2005 and 2009, citing the article linked above.
But as many comments here say, and I agree with, the CDC is a government agency and one patient may have multiple STDs and the CDC counts each infection as an individual infections, instead of one patient having multiple infections.
Also in the Orlando Sentinel article:
As a result of the national trend among seniors, Medicare is considering providing coverage for STD screenings for seniors. In March, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid office announced that it was looking into adding STD exams to the national health-insurance program, which already pays for HIV screenings. Medicare also is weighing the benefits of paying for behavioral counseling for sexually active seniors.
So one wonders if the CDC back in 2011 and now have a motive, i.e. government can take care of your STDs./s
I remember when the above made the local news and one female senior citizen interviewee, who contratced AIDS and Hepatitis from a “gentleman” in her retirement community, made the comment that she thought STDs and AIDs were for young people, gays and prostitutes, ignoring the common theme among them, i.e. promiscuity.
Another "free" birth control option.
Fifty years ago there was no VD in our area. Fifteen years later, after the “sexual revolution”, you could not pick up a skank at an Oklahoma bar without catching clap, crabs, syph or worse.
From past experience we can assume the MSM is protecting their own. That means the majority of STD cases are coming from groups protected by democrats...
think, for a moment, about the cases of std's that are not reported....the CDC is counting only those that it knows to exist.....
They don’t prevent the spread of herpes II.
Sex panles need to lower the costs.
I’m glad I’m not sexually active. Seriously.
I think it has a lot to do with the number of unmarried women looking to force their neighbors to pay an ever greater portion of their bastard babies’ expenses.
So are you telling me that one out of three Americans are infected with some venereal disease? That means one of two things:
1. Wash my hands after every interaction.
2. Have a plan to kill everyone I meet.
If a person has herpese AND HPV AND genital warts, he or she SHOULD be counted 3 times. You may not be at risk of one or another but the potential for the spread of disease is still there. Again, why are we doing background checks on gun owners yet NO LONGER REGISTERING those who have communicable diseases?
