Summary: At This Very Moment an epidemic is invading our teenage kids. It's an epidemic that threatens their very lives, and often goes unnoticed until it's too late. It's an epidemic that is raging in every corner of the country, from rural towns to every major metropolis. Worst of all, it's an epidemic we helped create. The epidemic is the tidal wave of sexually transmitted diseases that, in some cases, have increased more than 500% in recent years. Right now, one out of ev ...show moreery four sexually active teens is living with an STD! And these diseases have changed over the years. Used to be, we only had to deal with two "venereal diseases." Today, kids contend with some 50 to 100 strains of viruses that stay with them for life. Perhaps the biggest dread is HPV (human papilloma virus), which directly causes 99.7% of all cervical cancers, and is five times more common than all STDs combined.
Dr. Meg Meeker has lived on the front lines of this epidemic for more than twenty years. As a pediatrician specializing in adolescent medicine, Meeker now sees STDs affect one-third of her patients. In this groundbreaking book, she examines in detail the threat of these diseases, and the causes for their widespread advance among our teens. But there is hope. In the middle of a battlefield surrounded by disease, depression (the newest STD), injury, and death, we must arm our kids with knowledge, so that they can make the right choices. We must stay connected to our kids, so they understand how much we care. Victory won't come from wearing condoms or "exploring" sexual freedom, but from wisdom, maturity, and self-control. In this must-read book, Dr. Meg Meeker shows us how we can connect with our kids to help save them from this epidemic. ...show less
