    Default Social cuts rsponsible for syphilis!!!

    Michigan has been undergoing a massive carving festival of state services for nearly a decade, with each progressive year finding lawmakers cutting more from the budget than the previous year. Lawmakers say they are long past cutting fat and muscle and are now down to carving out bone.

    And that just might be the reason three of the state's 83 counties are reporting an upsurge of syphilis cases, as I reported in the Michigan Messenger on April 29.

    Max, I think you need a basic lesson in how public health services control venereal disease.

    They test and notify people who have been exposed so they will take their penicillin and not infect other people.

    (mind you, I think the OP article may be reaching, syphilis rates have gone up in some other places also)

    I'd say the meeting strangers on the internet to anally probe is more responsible, but I guess that's a left-right thing.

    Yes it would seem that right wingers are more likely to know about such things

    If I was stupid enough to have unprotected sex with unknown partners then I guess I would be too stupid to realise that I might catch something, your right.

    What is more is that the initial symptoms of syphillis are a bit subtle and actually go away after a short while. So if someone were ignorant they'd think they "got better", and then they'd be on their merry way spreading it around.

    That's why county-level public health agencies do contact investigations for this kind of thing. They actually find out who you had sex with, find all of those people, and bring them in for testing and treatment.

    So now you've answered your question. Seeing as some people are ignorant and don't necessarily get the concept of asymptomatic contagious disease, if you didn't have those contact investigations, certain diseases would be a lot more likely to spread through the population.
