health of san fransisco citizens : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

What is the overall health of the citizens of san fransisco. Especially with the Aids epidemic and the large gay/lesbian community.

A good start would be to try the San Francisco Department of Public Health website. They offer statistical reports.

The overall health of the citizens of san francisco is very good except for one thing, the majority of people are overweight. But that's a national epidemic anyway.

As far as the AIDS issue,that is specifically targeted to those high risk takers. The weird part about this that no one likes to talk about is that about 10 times as many people have genital warts as have AIDS. Though I don't think you can die of genital warts, it is still an aweful thing to have especially if your new boyfriend or new girlfriend finds out you have it. Many people are asking for AIDS test but don't understand that genital warts are very contagious.
