NIH Spends $3 Million To Study Health Risks of Dating Mexican Prostitutes ( What Sequester ? )
CNS News ^ | July 12, 2013 | Ryan Kierman

Just how dangerous is it to your health to shack up with a Mexican hooker? That’s the question at the heart of a five-year, $3,029,663 study by researchers at the University of California San Diego funded by the National Institutes of Health.

The five-year study is taking the first-ever look at the love lives – and sexually transmitted diseases – of 200 prostitutas mexicanas and their “non-commercial” male partners.

Based on previous research, UCSD scientists have been able to determine conclusively that the “non-commercial male partners” of Mexican prostitutes are very likely to pick up and spread their partners’ sexually-transmitted diseases, and may in fact be “significant drivers of HIV/STI acquisition and/or their re-infection.”

Begun in 2009, the Mexican prostitute study has already been receiving federal funding of over half a million dollars annually, and the $3 million price tag does not include the as-of-yet undetermined 2014 grant

I guess it depends on what the meaning of “dating” is.

Can I get $3 million to issue a study on risks of hookers?

You don’t need a whole report. Just a few sentences such as these are what you need to know. If you consort with a known prostitute, who had done God knows what with God knows how many men, you are at an increased risk of VD. It seems like common sense. So, if you want to avoid VD and risks associated with the prostitution business, avoid the prostitutes. Then, you for sure will avoid any diseases. Make sense????

Common sense is MUCH cheaper than NIH studies like this. Who the hell signed off on that? Which bill was that snuck into? THAT’S what we should be looking into.

University of California - Davis. To be run by Big Sis in a few more weeks. And we wonder why “Big University” isn’t vilified in the manner of “Big Oil”?

Are the researchers of U of Cal, San Diego gathering personal data?

And what will the study results prove, where will it be published and who is going to give a rat’s a$$?

The usual waste of tax dollars spent by socialist PhD’s to justify their existence on the university payrolls.

Could that possibly work with STDs transmitted through gay sex?

I wonder whether Senator Mendez from NJ will request a study on STD risks from Dominican prostitutes.

“Every guy in our high school already knew the risks 30 years ago”

Like a ninety percent chance that they’ll get something they never had before.

Dating prostitutes shouldn’t harm anyone.

Hiring one is a different story.
