STD Awareness Month 2015

April is STD/STI Awareness Month!

“This month-long observance provides an opportunity to clear up misperceptions about STD prevention and testing, and confront the unique challenges that young people face when it comes to preventing these infections.”


“Almost half of all sexually active young people in the United States will get an STD by the time they’re 25—and most won’t know it.”

Almost all STDs that can be spread via unprotected vaginal sex can also be spread through unprotected oral and anal sex.

You can lower your risk of getting STDs by:

  • Being in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who has been tested and does not have STDs.
  • Limiting the number of people you have sex with if you have more than one partner.
  • Using latex condoms and dental dams the right way every time you have sex.
  • Getting an HPV vaccine, which can protect you against diseases (including cancers) caused by the human papillomavirus.

It’s safe, quick, and usually confidential. Many clinics even provide free or low cost testing. Link the following link to find a clinic near you:

World Health Day

world health day 2015

As we all know everyone needs food and more specifically safe food. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) safe food is defined as being free from microbes, viruses and chemicals. April 7th is World Health Day. This years campaign focuses on safe and healthy food. Unsafe food is the cause of over 200 diseases and up to 2 million deaths annually. The production, distribution, preparation, and consumption of food must all be considered. In modern society this is especially important to consider. The food you are eating could have come from the other side of the world and it is the responsibility of all people to take the proper steps in ensuring food safety. This includes the people who farm or produce the food, people who help in the transportation of food, those who work at the markets that distribute the food, all people who prepare food, and even those who consume it. Food is a major industry around the world that helps economies, boosts health, and assists in a safer environment. The WHO focuses on the global perspective of safe food. To see the steps WHO has taken, learn more about this topic, or see what you can do to help the cause please visit the link below. Explore the page and check out the World Health Day 2015 video.
