if 'it' is such a natural thing, then why does 'it' lead to all of these diseases?

6 cases is an outbreak? Or do they really mean, potential outbreak?

Does anyone know what is actually considered an outbreak for this type of disease?

Instead of worrying about not where to put one, how about learning how to not BE one.

These kids believe the lessons they learned in sex ed. They put the condom on the banana and wonder why they get sick.

This male prostitute contracted syphilis. He did okay for a while, but then his business dropped off.

I think if it turns green and falls off it is considered an outbreak.

So then by your standards the trees in michigan are an outbreak. Get with it. I was talking about FOUR cases being considered an outbreak...outbreak, a word usually indicative of widespread disease.

it you look at this, you will see why they are saying this could be considered an out break. they must be conserned about the increased numbers.

"My girl, Ginger, is going to die of syphilis," mumbles an angry biker to one of his buddies.

"No," says the friend, "people don't die of syphilis anymore."

The angry biker replies, "They do when they give it to me!"

Syphilis is a communicable disease and not gender or sexual orientation based. So watch where you dip you wick . . . it can also be transmitted through oral sex and kissing. Only requirement is to contact an open lesion, where ever it is located.

That would be gonorrhea. Syphilis is asymptomatic.
