It seems like everything in Idaho is growing, in more ways than one. KTVB just reported that "Health Experts are alarmed by the jump in STD in Idaho." Ouch!

The Idaho State Journal reports that last year there were nearly 6,600 STD cases, including HIV, up from fewer than 6,300 in 2016. Cases are also up nationally, with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announcing last week that nearly 2.3 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis were diagnosed in the United States in 2017.

The report goes on to explain that: "experts are struggling to understand what's driving the increases."

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the mainstream use of app's like Tinder and not using adequate protection. Guys and girls, wrap it up, this is no joke and the consequences of not doing so can be painful.  . Gonorrhea and Chlamydia are the most prevalent STD's reported nationally and in Idaho.
