Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a pharmaceutical taken to prevent transmission of HIV. As predicted, it seems many users are beginning to ditch condoms, putting themselves at greater risk for the transmission of other sexually transmitted diseases or infections. This is an enormous problem, as this type of exposure can lead to new diseases. Or stronger ones. New research suggests that gonorrheoa might one day become resistant to all antibiotics. The more transmissions, the more chances for gonorrheoa to evolve into something we can’t beat with traditional medicine. Please use condoms! HIV isn’t the only threat out there.
Jeff is a self-proclaimed pragmatic futurist; that is, he has high hopes for absurd life-altering technologies which sound too good to be true, and probably are. Although he writes on a variety of subjects, his real passion is for technological innovation and the people who make it happen. By day, he enjoys fuzzy bunnies, kittens, puppies, roller coasters and a sardonic written word or two. By night, he’s busy running MMR, replaying a random Final Fantasy game, or pretending to be Batman. He currently resides in Upstate NY.
