An additional 15 million people become infected with one or more stds each year, roughly half of whom contract lifelong infections.

Despite the fact that stds are extremely widespread, have severe and sometimes deadly consequences, and add billions of dollars to the nation's health care costs each year, most people 69 in the United States remain unaware of the risks and consequences of all but the most prominent std-the human immunodeficiency virus or hiv. 16, 34 29 18 29 18 31 29 22 51 38 46 25 61 28 34 44 37 40 61 41 18 65 46 34 41 46 42 56 46 43 35 63 58 60 59 40 54 52 50 78 49 97 72 66 82 51 43 STD rate (per 1000 people) <30 30 - 50 51 - 70 > 70 Cases of STD's reported 400 Chlamydia 300 Genital Warts Gonorrhea 200 Herpes Syphilis 100 1996 1998 2000 2002 2004 2006 2008 1 out of five people in the US has an STD 1 out of 4 high school girls 2 out of 3 women with has an STD HIV/AIDS are African American Distribution of New Cases New Cases per Year by Age Chlamydia 3 million 15-19 years old 20- 24 years old 650,000 42% 25% Gonorrhea Syphilis 70,000 25 years and over 1 million 33% Herpes Human 5.5 million Distribution of New Cases Papilloma Virus by Gender Hepatitis B 77,000 Trichomoniasis 5 million male female 36% 64% HIV 20,000 1 million 2 million 3 million 4 million 5 million 15 $16.6 $16.6 Billion 15 new STD cases from porn actors and actresses are reported every week cost of expenditures for medical and non-medical services and materials relating to STDS Crabs can live 24 hours off of a human host, infesting bedding and clothes...
