STI’s Outpace Job Growth in the US

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 in the U.S. at that time to more than 110 million.

The 19.7 million new STIs in 2008 vastly outpaced the new jobs and college graduates created in the United States that year or any other year on record, according to government data.

The STI study referenced by the CDC estimated that 50 percent of the new infections in 2008 occurred among people in the 15-to-24 age bracket.

The CDC said the new venereal infections contracted each year cost the nation about 16 billion dollars not to mention the spiritual cost from our sex-saturated, anything goes, war on traditional values.
