The list of diseases found with
extraordinary frequency among male homosexual practitioners as a result of anal intercourse is
alarming:
Anal Cancer
Chlamydia trachomatis
Cryptosporidium
Giardia lamblia
Herpes simplex virus
Human immunodeficiency virus
Human papilloma virus
Isospora belli
Microsporidia
Gonorrhea
Viral hepatitis types B & C
Syphilis25
Sexual transmission of some of these diseases is so rare in the exclusively heterosexual
population as to be virtually unknown. Others,
while found among heterosexual and homosexual practitioners, are clearly predominated by
those involved in homosexual activity. Syphilis,
for example is found among heterosexual and
homosexual practitioners. But in 1999, King
County, Washington (Seattle), reported that 85
percent of syphilis cases were among self-identified homosexual practitioners.26 And as noted
above, syphilis among homosexual men is now
at epidemic levels in San Francisco.27

No offence but they where born that way, how can they be stopped from doing what they want or being who they are . Unless there's someone out there who has the super powers to recreate them, make them match there organs .

No they where not born that way, they choose to be that way. It is the same as someone deciding to have sex with a animal (bestiality) people choose to do sick things then they try to say it is normal because it makes them feel good. Some murders say the same thing, it make them feel good to murder someone, are they born that way to are they being who they are?

It's a freedom of choice.. So they either choose...
But we should appreciate the way The Lord has created each been in a unique way...

It is not freedom of choice, most countries have laws against such behavior. God condemns the people who practice homosexual sex, he did not create them to be that way, they choose to be doing these things, God calls it a abomination.

Some countries even execute practicing homosexuals, the Arab countries in particular.

Happy reading.
And his DISCLAIMER: Because he is still a working academic surgeon and researcher (and hopes to remain so until he retires, which means—hopefully–for another 20 years or possibly even more), Dr. Gorski must emphasize that the opinions expressed in his posts on SBM are his and his alone.

Notice it says his personal opinion. Hmmm

Who (or what) is Orac?
Orac is the nom de blog of a (not so) humble pseudonymous surgeon/scientist with an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his miscellaneous verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few will.(Continued here, along with a DISCLAIMER that you should read before reading any medical discussions here.)

Disclaimer
This is a personal web log, reflecting the sometimes prickly opinions of its author. Statements on this blog do not represent the opinions of anyone other than the author. They most definitely do not represent the opinions or position of the author's hospital, university, cancer institute, surgical practice, partners, or research colleagues. The information on this blog is intended for discussion and entertainment purposes only and not as recommendations about how to diagnose or treat illnesses. Any personal medical issues the reader may have should be referred to the reader's physician. If the reader freely chooses to follow the opinion of a pseudonymous blogger like the author (who has also not done a proper history or physical examination and whose credentials cannot be verified) over that of his or her own personal physician, it is the reader's decision alone, for which the reader must bear full responsibility.

In addition, Orac has been funded over the last decade by institutional funds, the Department of Defense, the National Cancer Institute, and various cancer charities. He currently receives no funding from pharmaceutical companies. Indeed, so bereft of pharmaceutical funding is poor, poor Orac that before his talks, when he is required to make his disclosures of conflicts of interest, he often jokes that no pharmaceutical company is interested enough in his research to want to give him any money. Maybe one day that will change, but for now, like most biomedical scientists in academia, he must beg the NIH and other granting agencies for the money to keep his lab going. Being a "pharma shill" doesn't seem to pay as much as supporters of alt-med think it does.

Sounds like the very same person as above, more personal opinion. You can fool some people but others you can not. Most of this stuff is old now and has been debunked a long time ago. HIV=AIDS everyone knows that HIV and AIDS are linked now it needs no discussion that was over a long time ago.

Notice these disclaimers say very directly not to take anything as medical fact? But to go to your personal physician. Just a fancy way of him saying this is my personal opinion don't go by what I say because I may be wrong...

STDs two and a half times More prevalent in lesbians than Normal Women.

The peer review journal Sexually Transmitted Infections.

In Montreal, a study of the lesbian subculture found that nearly 90 per cent had been diagnosed with Chlamydia, and 50 per cent with bacterial vaginosis.

Another rabidly religious-right wingnut site. Dismissed. NEXT!
You don't look at anything very closely do you? Here I'll do the work for you to find the information that is so easy to find.

Sexually Transmitted Infections
An international peer-reviewed journal for health professionals and researchers in all areas of sexual health.

The world's longest running international journal on sexual health. It aims to keep practitioners, trainees and researchers up to date in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of all STIs and HIV. The journal publishes original research, descriptive epidemiology, evidence-based reviews and comment on the clinical, public health, sociological and laboratory aspects of sexual health from around the world.

That doesn't change the fact that the so-called JPANDS is a blatantly rightist organization peddling junk science. Go look up my other link (the one to Science-Based Medicine), or, better yet, how about this little tidbit:
http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/news/ce...
snip: "Madeleine Cosman's false claim that there were 7,000 cases of leprosy diagnosed in the United States from 2001 to 2004 was included in her article, "Illegal Aliens and American Medicine."...Cosman's piece was published in the Spring 2005 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, published by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, which represents private practice doctors. The journal is known as a right-wing periodical whose science has been the subject of harsh criticism.
Though the article notes her Ph.D., it does not say that the degree is in English and comparative literature. Cosman had no medical training other than as a medical lawyer.
In the article, Cosman provides no source for her claim of 7,000 cases of leprosy, also known as Hansen's Disease, in three years — presumably 2001 to 2004, given the article's publication date.
The claim has no basis in fact."
And there you go. Get more reliable sources if you want to look credible, dude.
Don't change the fact they use legitimate sources of information from educational and medical organizations that are peer reviewed. Leprosy has nothing to do with what we are posting about, no bearing what so ever. Harsh criticism, by the homosexual community or the illegal migrant community proves nothing.

Madeleine Pelner Cosman (December 4, 1937 – March 2, 2006) was a scholar, a policy analyst, an advocate, a prolific author, and a faculty member at City College of New York. "As a medical lawyer, educator and health-care policy guru, she testified before Congress, wrote 15 books and buttressed conservative politicians' arguments against immigration".

Also your glossing over the fact the many in the main organizations of the homosexual community admit to the health problem, promiscuity, domestic violence in homosexual coupes and groups are far higher than the heterosexual community.

Also much information has been collected by the CDC and other health organizations, easy to access by going to their websites, that is against everything you have posted so far on male homosexuals and female homosexuals. Venereal disease, physical harm related to sex practices, physical harm related to same sex couples, groups domestic abuse is much higher than the heterosexual community. A good majority of the problems homosexuals face in regard to the choice they make to live the kind of life they do sexually and otherwise is not even experienced by the heterosexual community or are in such low numbers to be almost none existent. Every major health organization on the planet that has done studies / research agree with that.

Always look at the disclaimer on these sites: Quote "must emphasize that the opinions expressed in his posts on SBM are his and his alone" Unquote

Other words personal opinion, not science fact.

...and I'll be proven right.
Nope, sorry not many statics available but shows a much higher incidence of sexual diseases, physical sexual injuries, domestic abuse and injuries to female homosexuals from what is available.

I find it funny homosexuals talk about gay bashing, abuse by people outside the homosexual community, yet statistics show a much higher rate of abuse in the same sex couples, that is the real gay bashing, homosexuals against their homosexual partners.

All it takes for people to find these things out now is a little research on the internet it is all there from the major medical organizations, I recommend to anyone to do their own research on these subjects to prove the truth of the matter to themselves.

Stick with the main health organizations and websites that reference these organizations. You can even look at references for some of the main stream homosexual organizations they admit sparsely to these very things themselves on their websites and in their literature.

Google: health risks of lesbians, health risks of homosexuals, health risks of MSM and so on, you will be able to make your own mind up on these issues.

Why you stupid American homosexuals commenting in Solomon? This is not part of America, the place you want is American Solomons it is under a different country all together, They may accept queers but we proud Native Samoan peoples never will. I came to America for a education, I hate it here politics and homosexuals that is all you hear.

And Andy Schlafly has already made a name for himself on the Internet, first as a defender of creationism on a USENET discussion group and then as an instructor of right-wing politics for Eagle Forum University."
Happy reading.
Nothing wrong with any of that exactly as they should believe.

Prove it, bigot boy. Post some links from some respected medical organizations or I'll just assume you pulled those "statics" outta your ass.
Anyone who can use Google can find the information easily. All you have to do is start with the CDC and they have many statistics on homosexuality and it rampant sickness, abuse and so on. It's there for anyone to see, read, look at, full open and transparent for anyone.
