Blog 11/15

There are many reasons in why we have gotten to where 1/3 Americans have been infected with an STD. Mostly persons between the age of 15 to 24 are most likely to be infected with an STD. Not only are individuals between this age range most likely to become infected with an STD, but adults older than 24, as well. One reason 1/3 Americans have been infected with an STD is because many people do not take these things serious. They don’t believe that this could happen to them; that they can possibly become infected with an STD. Some people are not aware of the consequences of not practicing safe sex. I personally believe that if people were more aware of certain STDs than they will be more likely to practice safe sex. They will be more likely to ensure that they, as well as their partners get tested. Some people may be infected with a disease, but they don’t tell the people they have sexual encounters with causing more people to get infected.
