Gathering statistics ...

For a little talk. Avert.org gives some numbers on AIDS and other STDs. Much is made of Africa for obvious reasons. Something that I found interesting from the statistics is that in Africa, 46% of the cases are men, in Europe 73% and in the US, 77%. They list a MSM (Men having Sex with Men) category. In the US, more than half of the 2005 transmission was MSM, while heterosexual transmission was about 1/3rd. This is the obvious reason for the ratios of infected men being so high in the US and Europe relative to Africa.

The one thing that this group remains clueless about is that STDs are primarly transmitted by non-Biblical S.
