It's still the "silent epidemic." No one likes to talk about gonorrhea and syphilis and the more than 20 other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) which are literally out of control in nations throughout the world today.

Last year over one million cases of gonorrhea alone were reported in the United States, and it is estimated that when the unreported cases are considered, the actual number is closer to four million. Gonorrhea and syphilis account for more infections every year than measles, mumps, scarlet fever, strep throat, hepatitis, and tuberculosis combined! In the United States, a new infection of gonorrhea or syphilis occurs every ten seconds!
