Interesting, I know of several cases here in BC that were cephalosporin resistant two years ago.

Unfortunately, it brings up a good point for barebackers.... it's not HIV that you should worry about, it's all the other uncureable STDs (e.g. herpes) and their horrible effects that has been around for centuries. While they can be managed (yes, I've heard of all the treatments including "natural" ones), I think we can all agree that they are never a good thing for your health and it's better NOT to have the problem in the first place.

Speaking of herpes, it's (literally) a pain in the ass and shot up my already-high genetic pre-disposition to colon and other cancers. Too bad I can't turn back the clock.
