Cootie Country

Why does a teenager need a cell phone, parents used to ask...

A new CDC study estimates that one in four (26 percent) young women between the ages of 14 and 19 in the United States... is infected with at least one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases...

...the study also finds that African-American teenage girls were most severely affected. Nearly half of the young African-American women (48 percent) were infected with an STD, compared to 20 percent of young white women.

If only they were more like their parents.
