Syphilis and gonorrhoea 'still on the rise' in England
Between 2012 and 2015, cases of syphilis increased by 76%, from 3,001 to 5,288, while gonorrhoea infections rose by 53%, from 26,880 to 41,193, Public Health England data reveals. [...] The British Association for Sexual Health and HIV said the continued rise of gonorrhoea was extremely disturbing, given the further spread of drug-resistant infections.
Dr Gwenda Hughes, head of STI surveillance at PHE, said: "We need to do more to raise awareness about STIs and how they can be prevented, especially the effectiveness of using condoms.
"We recommend that anyone having sex with a new or casual partner uses condoms and tests regularly for HIV and STIs."

Super-gonorrhoea's spread 'causing huge concern'
Doctors have expressed "huge concern" that super-gonorrhoea has spread widely across England and to gay men.
The new superbug prompted a national alert last year when it emerged in Leeds, as one of the main treatments had become useless against it.
Public Health England acknowledges measures to contain the outbreak have been of "limited success".
Doctors fear the sexually transmitted infection, which can cause infertility, could soon become untreatable.
Cases of super-gonorrhoea have now been detected in the West Midlands, London and southern England.
Only 34 cases have been officially confirmed in laboratory testing, >>> but this is likely to be the tip of the iceberg of an infection that can be symptomless. <<< + cuts to public health budget! //&!

Investors urge fast food and pub chains to act to reduce farm antibiotics
A group of powerful City investors who together control more than $1tn in assets have written to leading fast food, pub and restaurant chains urging them to take immediate action to reduce antibiotic use in their meat and poultry supply chains. [...] UK human campylobacter infections have become more resistant to antibiotic treatment. Percentage of human campylobacter cases tested that showed some degree of resistance to the antibiotic ciprofloxacin - approaches 50%!!! [...] Of the 17,332 human campylobacter cases tested in 2015 for resistance to ciprofloxacin, 48% had some degree of resistance to the drug. In 2005, this figure was 30%.

Why Performers Can’t Choose Condoms « MikeSouth.Com
She tells me “I don’t have a problem if two performers want to work together without a condom, they should be able to do that, I have a problem when they tell me I CAN’T require a condom even though the guy I was working with has Herpes and I don’t. She doesn’t think that The Free Speech Coalition has her back. They are pushing this agenda that testing is all that is necessary but when I asked them if they were as interested in my right to choose to use a condom as they were in my right not to. It was clear, very clear, that they don’t want me to have that option, that I should be willing to risk my health just because I choose to be in the industry. “I just can’t support that.” [...] Cal-OSHA [...] 75% of performers who had been in the business for more than six months have Herpes.

Gonorrhoea 'could become untreatable' - BBC News
Dame Sally Davies has written to all GPs and pharmacies to ensure they are prescribing the correct drugs after the rise of "super-gonorrhoea" in Leeds. Her warning comes after concerns were raised that some patients were not getting both of the antibiotics needed to clear the infection. Sexual health doctors said gonorrhoea was "rapidly" developing resistance. [...] Gonorrhoea is the second most common sexually transmitted infection in England and cases are soaring. The number of infections increased by 19% from 29,419 in 2013 to 34,958 the following year. // - - untreated long-term can lead to infections (septicaemia), inflammation in other body parts. = Disability due to chronic pain and inflammation. //&!

Stephen Fry - HIV and Me - Part 1 - YouTube
[ chem sex as symptom of public sentiment at large towards what "being gay" means. and how gay people see themselves in this picture and see how they are treated at large?! it's like about breaking free from social norms, its a counterproductive form of rebellion against society in its most dangerous form. ] [ protection = naughty but not dangerous ] [ some are thrill seeking people. a kick apart form normal life. ] [ hetero sex now counts for half of all new infections ] [ medical profession guess is that between 1/3 and 1/2 of all infection go undiagnosed, because they don't have HIV test, in UK ] PART 2: [ stigma and prejudice of being HIV positive is a social crisis. medically we moved on, but socially we haven't. there is still this big fear and horror part, instilled into people by it's initial campaign during the 90's. HIV is a social problem. ]

Rules banning gay and bisexual men from giving blood to be reviewed | Politics | The Guardian
A spokesperson for the gay rights campaign group Stonewall said: “We want a donation system that is fair and based on up-to-date medical evidence. Currently gay and bi people cannot give blood if they have had sex in the past 12 months, regardless of whether they used protection. Yet straight people who may have had unprotected sex can donate. “These current rules are clearly unfair and we want to see people asked similar questions, irrespective of their sexual orientation, to accurately assess the risk of infection. Screening all donors by sexual behaviour rather than by sexual orientation would increase blood stocks in times of shortage and create a safer supply by giving a more accurate, non-discriminatory assessment.”

Last-Resort Antibiotics In Jeopardy As Use Rises Globally : Goats and Soda : NPR
"The concern is that the consumption of last-resort drugs has also gone up significantly since 2010. If drug resistance develops to these antibiotics, we have nothing else left to use." [...] Over the past decade, bacteria have evolved to evade nearly every type of antibiotic. Most of us are familiar with MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), which causes deadly skin infections. But there's also a superbug version of gonorrhea, and a vicious gut pathogen, called carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE, which may kill up to 50 percent of people it infects. Doctors still have a few potent weapons against these pathogens, such as cephalosporins for gonorrhea and polymixins for CRE. But to keep these antibiotics effective, we need to make sure their use is limited.

There Is No Doubt That there Is AntiBiotic Resistant Gonorrhea In Porn Valley « MikeSouth.Com
"Given the number of Gonorrhea cases in Porn Valley and the prevalence of antibiotic resistant strains the lab person who said it is incredibly naive to think it isnt happening makes perfect logical sense. [...] What alarms me more than anything else is that the situation shows no sign of getting better in terms new treatments and new antibiotics for this troublesome STD" .... [...] Comment: " Some of these perforers take an unecessary antibiotic every month, and a number of male performer have been doing this for years. [...] Perhaps the title of this story should be 'There is no doubt, NONE WHATSOEVER, that a significant number of adult performers have developed resistance to the antibiotics used to treat gonnorhea.' For years perforermers have self medicated a few days before their test in order to test clean, and not lose a few days work. AIM used to warn people about this, but it mostly fell on deaf ears." - very insightful from user jilted !!!

Imagining the Post-Antibiotics Future — Medium
the FDA found (among many other results) that 65 percent of chicken breasts and 44 percent of ground beef carried bacteria resistant to tetracycline, and 11 percent of pork chops carried bacteria resistant to five classes of drugs. Meat transports those bacteria into your kitchen, if you do not handle it very carefully, and into your body if it is not thoroughly cooked—and resistant infections result. +

Sex Superbug Could Be 'Worse Than AIDS'
An antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea—now considered a superbug—has some analysts saying that the bacteria's effects could match those of AIDS. [...] This gonorrhea strain, HO41, was discovered in Japan two years ago in a 31-year-old female sex worker who had been screened in 2009. The bacteria has since been found in Hawaii, California and Norway. [...] nearly one in 20 hospital patients become infected with one [Superbug], according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. [...] More than 800,000 of STD cases reported are gonorrhea infections, with most occurring in people between the ages of 15 and 24. [...] Gonorrhea can be hard to detect. It often shows no symptoms in about half of women and in about 5 percent of men. Gonorrhea infection rates were at historic lows until two years ago, according to the CDC.

Antibiotic-resistant diseases pose 'apocalyptic' threat, top expert says | Society | The Guardian
Changes in modern medicine have exacerbated the problem by making patients more susceptible to infections. For example, cancer treatments weaken the immune system, and the use of catheters increases the chances of bugs entering the bloodstream.
