This is something BIG people.....please protect yourself. STD's are on the rise!
The number of Americans newly infected with a sexually transmitted disease (STD) continues to rise, federal health officials say, with one infection in particular -- chlamydia - hitting an record million-plus new cases annually.
Numbers from 2006 show that cases of chlamydia, as well as gonorrhea and syphilis, continued to increase in the United States for the second year in a row, according to a new report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
