No matter where you are in the world, people love having sex. For many reasons, engaging in sexual activities is highly enjoyable and a plethora of folks look to do it as often as possible. However, nowadays, the act of smashing could put your health at risk, due to the host of STD’s in existence. Some, like HIV/AIDS, can even mean death. HIV/AIDS awareness is spread in the United States, but other global spots, such as nations in Africa, are seen as much worse off, in regards to the deadly disease. The findings of Dr. Carlos del Rio has raised many eyebrows. The co-director of Emory University’s Center for AIDS Research has found that the rate of HIV infections in Atlanta is comparable to third world African nations.
In 2014, it was found that one out of every five Georgia residents is infected with HIV and unaware. Del Rio says that one child in every two classes of children will contract HIV in his/her lifetime. “Downtown Atlanta is as bad as Zimbabwe or Harare or Durban,” he said in a statement to Atlanta’s WSB-TV. “This is not Africa. We have resources.” VladTV reports:
According to a study conducted by the CDC in 2014, Atlanta ranked fifth in United States for new HIV infections. In the year of 2014, Atlanta’s population was just pushing 10 million people. Another study from the CDC predicts that one in 51 Georgia residents are subject to contracting HIV in their lifespan. That is a pretty alarming projection. The ways of contracting HIV are not just strictly limited to sexual intercourse, as a Fulton County, Georgia reported that heightened heroin usage in Atlanta could lead to a wider spread of the disease.
