#1 Any mention of demographics or potential immigration impacts goes conveniently unmentioned in the BGR article or the CDC report.

#6 Of course, you have to go to the actual tables in the report which disaggregate by ethnicity to get the numbers that reveal the real story - a sample:
SYPHILIS - Incidence per 100,000
Males in age brackets 20-24, 25-29, 30-34:
Whites........19.2......26.1......24.9
Hispanics....51.8.....62.3......50.3
Blacks.......118.5...152.7...123.2

#7 What's the rate for gay males?
Too bad they didn't collect that data. Probably tells the other half (in addition to ethnicity) of the story.

#8 Actually... given that the rate of infection for males in each age/ethnicity cohort is many times higher than for females in each cohort, the data released by CDC point to a good hypothesis as to what's driving this: unprotected sex among young black and Hispanic gay males.

Surprise, surprise.

#9 One more thing those 18-26 year-olds still on the parents' health care plan are "contributing" to the economy.

#10 #7 - see my #2 comment. IIUC, the medical control of HIV and AIDS has led back to high-risk meth parties with bareback (unprotected) practices

#11 I remember the saying from the late 1960s or early 1970s: "If it feels good, do it."

Maybe not such a good idea; STDs, unwanted pregnancies and abortions.
