    STDs are one of the most critical health challenges facing the nation today. CDC estimates that there are 19 million new infections every year in the United States.

    Kudos to Russia! AFAIK there is a big stigma in this regard. Lack of anonymous STD clinics is one thing, but what's more important was non informed people. With todays medicine You only have to fear HIV and even if You are lucky to get it, Your life doesn't end there. I'm not even talking about all small sti like gon or chlam, all it takes are small dose of cheap antibiotics taken on time and You are healthy in a week.
    It's shame that even US is so backwards when it comes to that, here in UK people of all ages can get anonymous screening done for free when they want to, medicine is free too. I'm not a teenager, I am married and faithful but I check myself once in 6 months as it costs nothing.

    There's more than HIV to worry about, how about herpes [a virus which NEVER goes away], or other viral based STDs.

Some people have it next to their eyelids and believe me it's more complicated than having it down there. Nothing to be overly concerned, there are more dangerous things out there. Other viral diseases/infections can be dealt with a modern treatment with few or no consequences at all. Of course most guys have caveman mentality and only go for help when health is really affected, not to mention spreading to multiple partners and etc.

    Removing underaged smoking in russia

    Post  KomissarBojanchev on Tue Nov 05, 2013 8:29 pm

    In Russia(like in Bulgaria) a huge amount of children are addicted (much higher than in western countries where smoking unlike in the east is seen as largely repugnant) to cigarettes and law enforcement is practically non existant since soviet times. Are there any efforts to reduce this number? Is the situation improving? It sure hasn't improved in Bulgaria so far.

    The key word is repugnent.

    There are a lot of forces driving banning and reducing cigarette consumption in the west, while most of the very very rich cigarette companies are enormously wealthy and invest very large amounts of money to encourage it.

    To get rid of it it needs to be seen as socially unacceptable... like drink driving, and even then quite a few will never get the message, but once the vast majority find it offensive it is easier to police the few.

    To be honest I would suggest illegal drugs and alcohol would be higher priorities for now though.

    Smoking is seen as repugnant in the West?

    Not in the American college campuses I've been to Wink

    Or France, where everyone (comparatively to the States) smokes.

    Problem that needs more care. However drug addict are more likely to catch HIV and if we see the population of both they are about the same. 

    That means that effective dealing with drug problem will positively influence on the amount of HIV infected.

    Still no real proof GMOs are bad for health, just sayin'.

    In fact the overwhelming response of the scientific community (no, I am not talking about studies funded by Monsanto) have been pretty positive.

    I ask whether someone who leaves in Russia can raise suspicions about the official reports being fake or not.

    Just some crackpot, relax.

    Rostat and Russia's health ministry are proffessional agencies in the field of statistics.

    Remember that everyone who's registered in the birth statistics; is also going to be registered as part of the population statistics, and entered into the next census.
    Are they going to inflate those figures too? Doubt it.

    And then there are the death rates, which are following a trend of decreasing at the same time as the birth rate has been increasing. So people die, and are removed from the population count. Or could it be that Russia is counting dead people as still living? Smile

    Come on think about - fat chance of any of this.

    Consuming vegetation dense with pesticides/herbicides has carcinogenic effects, just ask the Vietnamese about Agent Orange still negatively affecting them even in current times...oh by the way Monsanto was responsible for Agent Orange, just a fun fact.

    But They destroy the soil so nothing after them can grow there ,like the shitty GM corn that grows in the fields of dobrudzha in my country that were planted without any clarifications by unidentified western private crooks, as well as lowering the taste qualities.

    I think there is sufficient evidence to support the ban of GMO food.

    GMO food effect rats.



    Rats are even rougher then the human organism and over time you only die due mass cancer on GMO food.

    GMO food is not banned in EU anymore. The german people decided over 80% that they don't want GMO food, but our government just abstained from the vote, ergo which means they are pro. And don't think that just it is not allowed in Poland or France that this GMO food will stay only on german soil. Wind doesn't give a damn about boarders.

    You are being sarcastic in that post TR1?

    FTR, EVERY single man-made chemical, pesticide, herbicide, additive EVER etc etc has been proven to be bad, harmful, terrible or carcinogenic.

    THere IS clear proof that this is simply the Devil's industry.

    However, by your reasoning, would you like to drink a bottle of the clear liquid my nephew managed to pick up from his school chem lab? There's no evidence whatsoever that its harmful. Because the bottle hasn't killed anyone yet. So you gonna drink it all down?

    Do u think the Monsanto CEO's wife goes out to a restaurant or gives her kids "some lovely, wholesome GM corn, with spliced sea lion genes"?

    They have no idea whatsoever what even the short term effects of this dabbling is.

    This is just like Mad Cow Disease in England, but MASSIVELY worse.

    Monsanto and the like are committing crimes against humanity. These "people" are the lowest of the low. They are weapons of mass destruction AND of mass deception.

    It demonstrates the total moral bankruptcy of the American politico-economic regime.

    The problem is that it is not just corn or tomatoes or whatever, this crap is fed to our animals we eat daily, chicken,pigs, cows even shrimps raised in tanks get part of this crap so we will eat it regardless if you want or not, this is biological genocide. This is not a conspiracy theory that is a fact, since over 70 years we are constantly told we are "overpopulated" which is nonsense and you think that all this poisining food is just coincidence, it is not. We are to many according to the elite. Just one measure out of millions to lower the population, homosexuellity culture in west is one other point, feminism invented by Rockefeller himself, for several reasons such as before feminism the FED got only 50% of population of the taxes income from working men, so how to increase income? Tell women that working is brilliant and don't be epressed by the "men", so families gone down the WC, less and less kids are born in western countries compared with 1900-1950's. Ignoring such facts is only lying to yourself so much coincidences are not possible.
