May 13, 2011 - PRLog -- Boston, MA -- eDrugstore.MD, the Web’s premiere online medication facilitator, is debuting a new infographic on its website to educate its customers about STDs. “Your Odds of Getting STDs From a Random Hookup” shows the dangers of having an unprotected encounter with a stranger, in hard numbers.

The infographic collects the per capita infection rate as provided by the Centers for Disease Control, and clarifies that information for the reader, explaining the real probability of contracting the most common STDs.

Among the findings:

The most common STD is the human papilloma virus (HPV). In fact, 50% of all Americans will have HPV at some point in their lives.

The next most common disease is herpes. Surprisingly, 90% of herpes sufferers are completely unaware that they are infected with the disease.

You are twice as likely to get hepatitis A as you are to contract HIV...but both diseases are equally dangerous to your health.

The infographic was commissioned to inform consumers, especially older consumers who may not have had as much health education as younger generations. As drugs such as the “magic blue pill” have become more widely available, the prevalence of STDs in older segments of the population has risen significantly, as high as 70% among seniors in some areas of the nation. This is especially problematic as seniors are more likely to be infected and will suffer more serious medical complications than younger STD sufferers.

By presenting the information in a concise way, eDrugstore.MD hopes to do its part to educate and entertain its customers, while guiding them to make safe choices. The infographic is available for sharing on other blogs, as well as Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites:
