    ...in chlamydia.

    (I love the opening quote)


    U.S. sets record in sexual disease cases
    More than 1 million chlamydia cases sets record for U.S. sexually transmitted dieases

    Updated: 12:22 PM ET Nov 13, 2007
    More than 1 million cases of chlamydia were reported in the United States last year _ the most ever reported for a sexually transmitted disease, federal health officials said Tuesday.

    "A new U.S. record," said Dr. John M. Douglas Jr. of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    More bad news: Gonorrhea rates are jumping again after hitting a record low, and an increasing number of cases are caused by a "superbug" version resistant to common antibiotics, federal officials said Tuesday.

    Syphilis is rising, too. The rate of congenital syphilis _ which can deform or kill babies _ rose for the first time in 15 years.

    About as well as the use-a-condom sex ed. ;)

    FWIW: I used an abstinence-only sex-ed curriculum on myself and, surprisingly, have never had an STD.

    Can you say redundant? (Every record is new when you set it. When do you ever set an old record? Sorry, pet peeve of mine.)
