    WASHINGTON, DC, December 4, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A new report from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) shows approximately 62 percent of gay men who know they have HIV/AIDS continue to engage in sexual relations without using a prophylactic, a behavior that can spread AIDS.

    More and more gay men in Connecticut are contracting syphilis, a life-threatening sexually transmitted disease, according to new statistics from the state Department of Public Health. Forty-five new cases of primary and secondary syphilis in Connecticut residents were reported to the state in 2004 -- more than triple the number of cases reported just four years ago, and 50 percent more than last year. Of those 45 new cases, 34 were gay men, including 12 who live in lower Fairfield County. The disease -- an epidemic a decade ago among poor blacks in Connecticut's larger cities -- is spreading quickly...

    The rate of syphilis infection has soared 800 percent in the past two years, prompting Toronto health officials to call for education and prevention funding. Nearly 280 Torontonians tested positive for syphilis in 2003, up nearly 45 percent from 195 in 2002, the Toronto Sun said Monday, quoting a report to be presented next week to Toronto's health board. Those numbers are up from just 30 cases a year from 1997-2001. Nearly three-quarters of the cases were among men who have gay, unprotected sex, the report said. The city tried to fight the rise last spring with a month-long poster...

    PIERRE, S.D. (AP) -- Hundreds of people will be tested for the AIDS virus after the arrest of an infected college basketball player on charges of having unprotected sex, the governor said Friday.

Briteramos, who is from Chicago, remained in jail Friday on $10,000 bail. Defense attorney Mary Keller said Briteramos is stunned by the charges. "He strikes me as a very sincere young man who is completely baffled by what's going on," she said. More...
