Joseph Serna reports for The Los Angeles Times that public health officials across the West Coast are urging medical professionals to look out for cases of ocular syphilis – a sexually transmitted disease that can cause blindness.
On March 5, 2015, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued an advisory for primary and eye-care providers to look out for symptoms associated with ocular syphilis, which is usually a complication of primary or secondary syphilis infections.
Two recent suspected cases in Los Angeles are added to the more than a dozen reported cases of ocular syphilis between Seattle and San Francisco, most of them among homosexual men. Some of the patients also are HIV positive, including six in San Francisco. In Seattle, two of the patients went blind.
In a statement, president of AIDS Healthcare Foundation Michael Weinstein calls for medical professionals to do more: “These new cases … highlight the importance of ongoing, regular check-ups for sexually active individuals who feel they may be at risk, particularly men who have sex with men.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, California’s syphilis rate is second in the country behind only Georgia. Los Angeles also had the highest number of primary and secondary cases of syphilis of any county in the U.S. in 2013, the CDC reported.
Meanwhile, the FDA’s decades-long ban on homosexual men as blood donors is opposed by the American Medical Association, despite the fact that according to the FDA, “gay men represent 61 percent of all new HIV infections in the U.S.” (ABC News)
Even worse, homosexuals are championing a “national gay blood drive.”
