With the easier than ever access to information and advice the days, are people lazy, stupid or just don’t care? And it’s not just younger people. I’ve also read that people in their middle age are reporting an increase in STI’s.
The rise in STI's is because more people are becoming aware of the dangers and so are being tested. Free home test available from GP's and Night Clubs have helped. So this increase is not people being lazy, stupid or careless, but more because people are actually becoming more aware of the dangers.
The article makes a good point but I am still of the opinion that the number of STI's is very high taking into account the easy access to help, advice and information. Reading and listening to people's comments in the media, (and I appreciate that they will use the more provocative comments), ignorance and lack of self-regard still seem to be prominent.
