STDs and HIV/AIDS reports have drastically increased over the past decades. Sadly, they are often misdiagnosed for other age related illnesses. Additionally, doctors may have a tendency to not test for them. Many new HIV and AIDS diagnoses given to people of the age of 50 are usually within a month of the patient's death by the alignment. So - lets educate our parents and grandparents. Safer-sex is important, just because you cannot get pregnant doesn't mean you can't catch something else. Approximately 20% of those with HIV/AIDS in the USA are over 50. High risk groups include homoaffectionate men and heterosexual women. Please be careful boomers. Hopefully the community and Government will do more to educate the elderly backbone of our communities.
