    First Antibiotic-Resistant Gonorrhea Cases Detected in North America - US News and World Report

    Completely incurable gonorrhea may be at hand
    By Jason Koebler
    January 8, 2013

    The fears of major health organizations have come true: Gonorrhea that is immune to the last remaining effective oral antibiotic has been detected in at least nine North American patients, meaning the era of "incurable" gonorrhea could be close.

    A reason why abstinence only education is no longer viable.

    Abstinence only education doesn't work. People will still have sex and with proper sex ed, you can teach them to be at least be safe and prevent the spread. With abstinence only education people will still have sex and just spread it around and it will grow because they don't know about safe sex.

    So this is what I can use to pep up my self-esteem some in the morning. "Well, at least I don't have antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea."

    As far as sex ed goes I think that kids should be educated on the danger of STDs and the real risk of unwanted pregnancy while focusing on an abstinence/safe sex approach.

    As far as the gonorrhea goes, hopefully there are other antibiotics out there (we have plenty at the moment) to treat it while also raising more awareness about antibiotic resistant diseases.

    We are creating more and more resiliency because of the antibiotics we have added to our food system. Instead of a simple pill you take for a few weeks, some people now have to resort to intravenous methods to get rid of infections. And it's only going to get worse.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    yes, the massive amounts of antibiotics given to cattle in their food supply is a major culprit.
