CDC: One In Four American Teenage Girls Has Sexually Transmitted Disease

Here’s some heartbreaking news from the Center for Disease Control (USA):

“A new CDC study estimates that one in four (26 percent) young women between the ages of 14 and 19 in the United States – or 3.2 million teenage girls – is infected with at least one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (human papillomavirus (HPV), chlamydia, herpes simplex virus, and trichomoniasis). The study, presented today at the 2008 National STD Prevention Conference, is the first to examine the combined national prevalence of common STDs among adolescent women in the United States, and provides the clearest picture to date of the overall STD burden in adolescent women.”

This should serve as another warning to young Filipinos: don’t follow the liberated ways of the West! The consequences are devastating.
