CDC: Gay Men 2% of Population But 67% of All New HIV Cases

All the issues are the same when it comes to the Republican and conservative failure in the information war. When something is important and the liberal media, liberal schools, and liberal pop culture don’t carry the facts to the public at large, how is that public supposed to get informed? Currently, conservatives have pipelines for information to flow it the already converted — but not to the uninformed and misinformed.

Here are a few facts from CNSNews that I’d bet big money few Americans know about:

Although homosexuals, or men who have sex with men (MSM), make up about 2% of the U.S. population, they account for 67% of “all new HIV diagnoses,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In addition, there are about 1.2 million people in the United States with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, and an estimated 647,700 (54%) of those people are homosexuals, or MSM.

The 67% of all new HIV cases is for 2013 and the 54% living with HIV is for 2011, the latest years, according to the CDC, for that particular data.

Among some of the other facts about HIV/AIDS, reported by the CDC, are:

— About 50,000 people become newly infected each year in the United States.

— “More than 14,000 people with AIDS in the United States die each year.”

— “More than 650,000 people with AIDS in the United States have died” since the epidemic started in the early 1980s.

— “Men who have sex with men (MSM) remain the group most heavily affected by HIV in the United States.”
