Those Canadian doctors have been busy.
According to these Maple Leaf quacks, a new strain of gonorrhea has become drug resistant!
The most commonly acquired sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the U.S., chlamydia and gonorrhea, are usually cleared out swiftly and easily with a dose of oral antibiotics. But one of these infections is growing bold and finding ways to evade treatment.
More than 321,000 cases of gonorrhea are reported each year in the U.S. alone—and the actual number of annual infections is probably much higher because many people do not experience symptoms. The infection has lost much of its social stigma since antibiotics were enlisted to fight it off earlier last century. But left untreated today, it can still cause pelvic inflammation, severe pregnancy complications and female infertility. Its presence increases the odds of an infection with HIV, and babies born to women with untreated gonorrhea are at risk of blindness.
Just another reason why you should always wrap it with a life jacket... if you know what I mean.
PS - The word "gonorrhea" looks like it would be an STD. Also, I feel kind of dirty having to spell check it.
