The most common STIs include chlamydia, gonorrhoea, herpes, syphilis and genital warts.
Rates for the 50 to 70 age group are at their highest on record although this may partly be due to better detection methods.
Highest on record, including returning soldiers. When Universal Care had to be set up after WW1 because so many men caught STDs from prostitutes. Prior to this, STD care was excluded because medicine was church-funded and you deserve it.
Ironically, if they hadn’t flooded the First World with the rest of it, they’d have kept cheap/free healthcare, it wouldn’t have crashed (in their lifetime) and killed them.
Total cost is multiplied by people in the country, dummies.
Neurosyphilis would explain their voting patterns.
During the First World War, VD caused 416,891 hospital admissions among British and Dominion troops (Mitchell & Smith 1931: 74). Excluding readmissions for relapses, roughly 5 % of all the men who enlisted in Britain’s armies during the war became infected. In 1918, there were 60,099 hospital admissions for VD in France and Flanders alone (ibid.: 73). By contrast, only 74,711 cases of ‘Trench Foot’ were treated by hospitals in France and Flanders during the whole of the war – and this total also includes those suffering from Frost Bite (ibid.: 88). Although Trench Foot has come to symbolise the squalor of the conflict in the popular imagination, a man was more than five times as likely to end up in hospital suffering from Syphilis or Gonorrhoea.
The army should nip that in the bud and just shoot the leaders of degeneracy.
It’s a coward’s way to get posted back home.
Deliberate illness by ‘lifestyle choice’ is unacceptable.
Public money was going on these pricks. At least send them home, make it public knowledge of the reason for the disgrace.
The women were obviously spies and should also be shot.
You know most of the users would’ve bragged, getting their innocent comrades killed.
It’s a war, no fucking around.
I’ve read cases of men going loopy from STDs after the war and unlike the PTSD cases, nobody cared. Well, you brought it on yourself.
Not to mention, makes us look bad abroad and the families, including wives, were naively sending gifts.
In British military law, only the concealment of VD, not the contraction of a disease itself, was punishable as a crime (Manual of Military Law 1907: 278, 285). Nevertheless, soldiers who were hospitalised with VD found themselves penalised by an antiquated system of ‘hospital stoppages’. In the days before a National Health Service, any man admitted to hospital for reasons not connected with his military service was liable to have money stopped from his pay to help cover the cost of his treatment. Although ‘hospital stoppages’ were finally abolished in October 1917, a levy was retained in cases where a man was deemed to have been admitted ‘through his own fault’, VD patients and alcoholics being the principle targets (Hogge & Garside 1918: 325). ‘Hospital stoppages’ became, in effect, a fine.
You know what we do when a dog won’t stop fucking?
We castrate it.
Nobody else is allowed to fuck on the job.
You’d never catch the Spartans doing that. Family honour, national pride.
Treatment was invasive and painful, and VD hospitals, set up in 1915 to concentrate expertise and keep VD patients away from their ‘honourably’ wounded comrades, often had a poor reputation for quality of care (Harrison 1995: 140).
We should have those again.
Wages of sin.
You wanna know why so many modern men are infertile? Look at the sins of the father down a few generations.
There are times it’s a good thing someone can’t breed.
I was reading this
because I wrote that piece on syphilis.
As well as causing infertility, syphilis can induce miscarriages and stillbirths. Some children born to syphilitic mothers will never show any signs of infection. Others die in infancy or develop serious health complications.
And antibiotics are failing.
And it struck me, wait, that continues on. It never disappeared.
Except women are still the ones blamed despite men counting more partners in studies (most sluts are men, mathematically and willingness plays into this) and there are links to psychiatric conditions.
No pill for ruining your legacy.
Top of my mind.
“It’s a very important paper,” says Karen Jones, a behavioral neuroimmunologist at the University of California, Davis, who was not involved with study. “It’s also really important to remember that not every mom who has HSV-2 is going to have a kid with autism.”
The idea virgin brides will prevent any STDs or medical grievances is absurd.
Chastity applies to men as well for good reason. Purity is physical?
This idea either sex can both have their cake and eat it is childish. Have it All is a lie sold to weaklings. Adults make difficult decisions, you don’t pop into the Perfect Husband/Wife mold overnight, it takes years and plenty of omissions!
To put your future wife and children at risk like that when sex toys exist should count as abuse, since abused children have similar problems, including catching the diseases of the parents.
The microbiome sexuality link remains strong.
Any sex, but especially anal.
Wow, I wonder which sex was brainwashed into being obsessed with that?
The focus on women is based on the fact we carry, we aren’t the source of the problem.
That’s medically impossible to be both cause and effect.
Fresh infections cause the most damage. Whose fault is that?
Never let it be said I avoided an interesting title.
Male infertility isn’t just related to procreation, either. Oftentimes, a decrease in sperm count is an indicator of an increased risk in premature death. (2) In fact, the study called it a “canary in the coal mine” for male health. And though the researchers didn’t set out to figure out why sperm counts were decreasing, they floated several theories, including environmental and lifestyle influences.
STDs and endocrine disruptors. That include the talc on your ass as a baby, makes you less manly and gives women ovarian cancer. Men get testicular.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, it’s been found that the effects of continuously raised estrogen levels in the female body due to taking birth control pills may include: (5)
- Potential increased risk of breast cancer
- Potential increased risk of blood clotting, heart attack and stroke. The risk of blood clots is highest for very overweight women taking the pill.
- Headaches or migraines
- Gallbladder or liver problems, including benign tumors
- Increased blood pressure
- Weight gain
- Mood changes, with some women experiencing symptoms of depression or anxiety
- Nausea, cramping, irregular bleeding or spotting between periods
- Breast tenderness
Compared to the low low risk of shutting your legs.
Ignoring sex has medical consequences. Groundbreaking.
It’s almost like the profligate man is being punished.
Almost like Darwin or God or some other force hates the promiscuous.
If only we had confirmation in a book of some kind…
You can’t get more unnatural than Nature literally trying to kill you for it.
Anyone who says sex as sport and hypersexuality is healthy needs their head examined too.
After a team of British researchers found bits of Zika virus lingering in the semen of men whose symptoms had cleared months before, they began to wonder: What other viruses hide out in unsuspecting parts of the body?
Men carry diseases in their urethra.
It never leaves.
It becomes part of them, fused, since the urethra is part of the microbiome.
Even oral requires barrier methods to account for this.
At least 27, according to a report published Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These include viruses that have been at the center of recent epidemics, like Ebola and Marburg, as well as viruses like mumps and adenovirus, which can cause a version of the common cold.
“This really raises the question of what is the definition of an STD,” Fenyong Liu, a professor in the division of infectious diseases at the University of California Berkeley School of Public Health who was not involved with the new report, told Business Insider.
The viruses appear to take advantage of one of the body’s key protective mechanisms, a phenomenon known as immune privilege. Certain parts of the body, like the eyes, are essentially no-fly zones for the immune system’s defense armies. They are shielded from inflammation to protect more critical functions like vision. Similarly, it’s believed that some reproductive organs may be immune privileged to protect sperm or eggs.
Some. Not all. Many en route parts are incredibly vulnerable. Don’t lie.
And that theory has really been debunked if you look at the clap-infertility rates. HPV’s gonna be a fun one to publish once the full picture of data comes in.
They just become infertile or the germline is diseased, also see paternal age studies because the male urethra is an incubator of sorts (poor hygiene, no barrier in oral, it’s passed to the mother of their child when caught from a stripper 18 years prior, that sort of thing). The WW emphasis on male chastity was to protect their wives from birth defects from retardation all the way up to miscarriage. Look it up.
It’s old, established science.
But this immune privilege may also serve as a foothold for a disease-causing virus like Ebola or Marburg, which the new study finds can remain in human semen for surprisingly long stretches of time. Here, the immune system can’t touch them.
It assists in mutation rate, or else they’d die. Microbes need a certain environment to live, remember. They are alive.
Mutation rate is sped up in the absence of overt immune clearing.
Money shot paragraph
Typically in the event of a viral outbreak, physicians and public health experts urge people to stay away from anyone who is infected for several weeks, paying particular attention to things like saliva and blood. The new study suggests this may not be enough. In some cases, viruses can persist for as many as 565 days in semen, meaning that an infected person could theoretically remain contagious for up to several months after they come down with one of the viruses.
*Anonymous Conservative cheers*
“Clinicians and researchers need to consider the possibility that traditionally ‘non-sexually transmitted’ viruses can persist in semen, and this therefore raises the possibility of sexual transmission,” Alex Salam, the lead author on the paper and a clinician and clinical researcher for the United Kingdom Public Health Rapid Support Team, told Business Insider.
There’s no ‘traditionally’ in biomedical research, bitch!
There is WRONG.
Although the researchers found pieces of the genetic material of these viruses, including Lassa fever, Epstein-Barr, and varicella zoster (the virus that causes the chicken pox), that doesn’t necessarily mean that the virus could be transmitted sexually. To find out if that is the case, they’ll need more research.
It’s there but you can’t catch it?
Sorry, do you also abide by the 10 second rule?
Do you believe in alpha STD protection?
Because bleaching your balls sounds perfectly healthy.
Fucking around with strangers for years, that’s perfectly safe!
According to…. feminists. Ah.
In the past, it was unclear how several viruses on the list could spread.
And it isn’t now you literally found out where it’s been hiding?
BK virus, for example, was thought to spread from person to person through respiratory fluids or urine, but the new study suggests that it can also be passed on through semen.
So men who refuse a condom are a public health hazard. Check.
And the taxpayer fits the bill yet again….
“This should raise people’s awareness that even though they might contract a respiratory illness or something that effects the lungs, it could potentially be spread through an entirely different part of the body like the semen,” said Liu.
Yet another reason rape confers the death penalty in religion.
Because it can easily be a death sentence. Damn, this book keeps getting proven true.
To come up with their list, researchers combed the scientific literature and found nearly 4,000 published papers that documented evidence of viruses whose genetic material had ended up in semen.
Needs research, they say, hands already extended and rubbing their fingertips.
No idea how it got there. Right.
Ended up in an exclusively single function place. No suspected cause. In science. K.
In addition to the 27 viruses they found, the researchers also discovered the genetic material of several other viruses, such as dengue, SARS, and smallpox, in human testes. There isn’t enough evidence yet to say if these viruses would also be present in semen, however.
Diseased testes, oh Darwin, you’ve had so many last laughs.
Lots of questions about the viruses remain. The most pressing is whether or not they could all be sexually transmitted to a new host. The researchers also want to know how long the viruses remain in semen and in what concentrations, as well as how their presence might impact sperm and male fertility more broadly.
I predict well. It’s gonna be great for fertility because the host is a whore. However, child survival rates will go down, as will health quality of the children. Paradoxically, infertility rates will also be far higher.
This does make consent yet still a larger looming issue, legally.
What if someone gives you an STD that makes you infertile? Gives you cancer?
Legally, they are responsible.
“This brings up more questions than it answers — and that’s fascinating,” Liu said.
Sex positive flags are for sale.
Credit: Jesus is just alt-right with me
If you pointed at a random American man or woman on the street and shouted Whore! you’d probably be right.
Note the contradiction of ‘healthy’ ‘infected’. They know the cancer risk and doubtless others.
This is being pushed as healthy?
Meanwhile, there are probably psychiatric effects from HPV…
and this includes men, who retain STDs in their urethra (the area isn’t sterile), as well the inevitability of male birth control.
