May 19, 2016 – 3 Out Of Every 10 Gay Or Bisexual Men Have HIV – Emory University Medical Researchers

A new study from health research has revealed that three out of every 10 gay or bisexual men in several cities in the South have been diagnosed with the HIV, three times the national rate, according to a shocking new study.

The study echoes other research that reported higher rates of HIV diagnoses in the South, in urban areas, and in gay and bisexual men, but it is the first to look at how common HIV diagnoses are in these men by city.

‘For the first time, we can see not only the numbers, but the proportions,’ said Dr. Jonathan Mermin of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The report found 21 of the 25 metro areas with the highest levels of HIV diagnosis in gay and bisexual men were in the South. HIV was diagnosed in about 3 in 10 gay and bisexual men in El Paso, Texas; Augusta, Georgia; and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In Jackson, Mississippi, the rate was 4 in 10, the highest in the nation.

About 11 per cent of gay and bisexual men had been diagnosed living with an HIV infection nationwide during the time covered by the study, according to the report.

Emory University researchers produced the new numbers using national counts of HIV diagnoses in different communities. Lacking good census counts of sexually active gay and bisexual men, they used data from previous studies to calculate how many men had sex with other men.

In its look at metro areas, the study counts only those who have tested positive for HIV. Because many HIV cases are not diagnosed, those numbers don’t reflect how common HIV infections really are in each area. It’s also not clear what factors may vary from city to city that might explain differing rates.

Still, while the largest total numbers of gay and bisexual cases are in large cities like New York and Los Angeles, this research gives a better understanding that the chance of encountering an infected gay or bisexual man is far greater in some smaller communities, some experts said.

The research was released Tuesday through an obscure publication, the Journal of Medical Internet Research. CDC officials described the work as important and useful in deciding how to target HIV prevention funds.

    Yes the reason for their calamity can be found in Jeremiah chapter 30 vs 12-15. God’s word is infallible.

    Different demons are assigned with distinct responsibilities. A senior demon is in charge of alcoholism, another senior demon is in charge of rape, another is in charge of adultery , another is in charge of HOMOSEXUALITY, and so on.

    I strongly believe that, the demon in charge of homosexuality is highly respected by his/her fellow senior colleagues and also respected by their commander-in-chief(satan).

    Reason being that, his subtle but lethal modus operandi is directed against the nucleus of HUMANITY(THE FAMILY). His operation is like agitating the central part of a cobweb which has far reaching effect on its(cobweb) periphery.

    Some people are yet to envisage the effects the practice of sodomy is going have on humanity in the near future.

    The time will come when non-gays or non-gays-sympathisers will be living in fear because they will be faced with hash policies that will make the lives of the straight population hell on earth.

    Men of God are now being sued for declining to wed gays. In other words, Christians who have contrary view to that of gays are forced to eat the shit they abhor. They compel Christians to endorse what they are against..

    The latest news now, is the effort of the powers that be to twist and contort the definition of gender to suit their future plans. They want the definition of gender not to be confined to human anatomy but, that it should be a matter of choice. Which means a person can choose to be a male in morning and in the evening, that same person chooses to be a female. What a world we are living in!

    In addition to the above stat in the article, it is also a known fact that gays commit 30%+ of all the rapes committed globally despite the fact that they(gays) make up only 3(three)% of world’s population.
