    Scientists reported last year finding a "superbug" strain of gonorrhea in Japan in 2008 that was resistant to all recommended antibiotics and warned then that it could transform a once easily treatable infections into a global health threat.
    "Gonorrhea is becoming a major public health challenge," said Manjula Lusti-Narasimhan, from the WHO's department of reproductive health and research. She said more than 106 million people are newly infected with the disease every year.

    I think people forgot about this oldie..It used to be referred to as a VD,but now we have sanitized that and call them STD's.
    Whatever acronym you use, they still are not being taken seriously and will again become major problems for everyone whos not practicing safe sex..

      Practice unprotected sexual intercourse and remain vulnerable to gonorrhea.

    What's really crazy is people actually host parties and such with the intent of contracting these diseases.  It is acrazy world!
