If you needed more reasons to use protection, consider the drug-resistant strains of gonnorhea that are quickly spreading around the world.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that 78 million people are infected each year globally.
Worse, 97% of the 77 countries surveyed by WHO say they have encountered a drug-resistant strain already.
As Dr. Xavier Didelot told Men’s Health, “at the current rate at which resistance is developing, we could find ourselves facing a situation where no antibiotic works, which would mean a return to the pre-antibiotic era.”
In case you were wondering; In the pre-antibiotic era, they injected mercury up a patient’s urethra to clear up the infection.
