The CDC (center for disease control) has published a study that shows 48% of black women have genital herpes! The study was done using african American women between 14 and 49 years old, the study shows an epidemic among these women that is seven times the average of other races. The question is why are these women having unprotected sex at such an alarming rate? What can be done to stop it and how can we educate people to stay away from these infected women in order to stop further infection?
