STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections) infect 22 thousand new people 15 to 25 years old every day. Along with the flu and common cold, they are the most common diseases in the US. The number has been increasing and there are 38 known STIs today.

Many people are unaware that they have an STI or lie to their partners about it. 80% of those infected with an STI do not develop symptoms. Many are incurable and some cause cancer.

One STI that is getting a lot of publicity is HPV or Human Papilloma Virus. This is a non-curable, viral STI known as genital warts. 99% of cervical cancer is caused by this virus. More women die from cancer caused by genital warts than AIDS!

The only sure way to keep yourself, your spouse, and your children safe from an STI is to keep sex between you and your disease-free spouse.
