Homosexuality. Very popular among liberal elites. The fact that men engaging in that lifestyle are killing themselves, that is a choice we must respect. Not just respect, but celebrate and promote. Big Gulps, no respect. Banned. Sodomicide? We have parades. -Pat Archbold
Homosexuality is gradually gaining grounds in the world today, and one of the things that have raised concerns over the years is the health implication of the practice.
There are divergent opinions on the matter; some health specialists argue that being homosexual is as healthy as a being heterosexual, while others argue against the notion.
Nevertheless, the fact remains that several research works have shown enormous health issues related to homosexuals and their practices, which is worthy of consideration.

As a physician, it is my duty to assess behaviors for their impact on health and wellbeing.
When something is beneficial, such as exercise, good nutrition, or adequate sleep, it is my duty to recommend it.
Likewise, when something is harmful, such as smoking, overeating, alcohol or drug abuse, and homosexual sex, it is my duty to discourage it.
-John R. Diggs, Jr., M.D.
Dr. Paul Church, a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty, was fired from his position at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center last year for telling the truth about homosexual behavior: That, as Bryan Fischer writes at barbwire.com, it “leads to a higher incidence of HIV/AIDS, STDs, hepatitis, parasitic infection, anal cancers, and psychiatric disorders.”

Gilbert Gonzales of the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville and colleagues found that compared to heterosexual women, lesbians were 91 percent more likely to report poor or fair health.
Lesbians were 51 percent more likely, and bisexual women were more than twice as likely, to report multiple chronic conditions, compared to straight women... While gays and lesbians reported worse psychological distress than heterosexuals, bisexual people suffered the most, the survey showed.

A group of six Canadian "queers," to use the gay media's term, have filed a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission, charging the nation's entire healthcare system with homophobia.
In what may wind up in the "What were they thinking?" file, they have dug a deep hole for themselves by demanding that more attention be given to "the many health issues that are endemic to our community." What would those "endemic" issues be?
Well, here is their list, not mine: lower life expectancy, higher rates of substance abuse, depression, HIV/AIDS, anal cancer, and suicide, and higher rates of breast cancer and cervical cancer among lesbians.

The report's list of health issues affecting queer Canadians includes lower life expectancy than the average Canadian, suicide, higher rates of substance abuse, depression, inadequate access to care and HIV/AIDS. "There are all kinds of health issues that are endemic to our community," said Hellquist.
"We have higher rates of anal cancer in the gay male community, lesbians have higher rates of breast cancer. These are all issues that need to be addressed."

New research pinpoints a major reason why gay and bisexual men remain so vulnerable to the AIDS epidemic: When it comes to the transmission of HIV, a man who has unprotected anal intercourse is at especially high risk. In fact, if that kind of intercourse was only as risky as vaginal intercourse, researchers report, HIV cases among gay and bisexual men would shrink dramatically. It would go down even more, they added, if their rates of casual sex declined.

A new study which analyzed tens of thousands of gay obituaries and compared them with AIDS deaths data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), has shown that the life expectancy for homosexuals is about twenty years shorter than that of the general public.
The study, entitled “Gay obituaries closely track officially reported deaths from AIDS”, has been published in Psychological Reports (2005;96:693-697).
Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) represent approximately 2% of the United States population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV.
In 2010, young MSM (aged 13-24 years) accounted for 72% of new HIV infections among all persons aged 13 to 24, and 30% of new infections among all MSM.
At the end of 2010, an estimated 489,121 (56%) persons living with an HIV diagnosis in the United States were MSM or MSM-IDU.

Many cases of sexually transmitted diseases are escaping detection because gay men are not being tested each year as advised, federal health officials said Wednesday... They said the test, used in new ways, could detect twice as many cases of gonorrhea and chlamydia as standard tests.
Those diseases, along with syphilis, whose incidence continues to increase, are “a major threat to gay and bisexual men’s health,” said Dr. Kevin Fenton, a top official of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Fenton noted that such diseases increased the risk of contracting and spreading H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS.
We have an agenda...
"We have an agenda to create a society in which homosexuality is regarded as healthy, natural, and normal. To me that is the most important agenda item."

Are homosexuals "not dangers to society" and is homosexuality "compatible with full health"? To answer these questions 4,340 adult respondents drawn via area probability sampling from 5 metropolitan areas of the USA self-administered an extensive sexuality/public order questionnaire of over 500 items.
Bisexuals and homosexuals (about 4% of the sample) as compared to heterosexuals:
(1) more frequently exposed themselves to biological hazards (e.g., sadomasochism, fisting, bestiality, ingestion of feces);
(2) exposed themselves sexually to more different bodies (e.g., more frequently admitted to participating in orgies, reported considerably larger numbers of sexual partners);
(3) more frequently reported participating in socially disruptive sex (e.g., deliberate infection of others, cheating in marriage, making obscene phone calls); and
(4) more frequently reported engaging in socially disruptive activities (e.g., criminality, shoplifting, tax cheating).

The high risk of contracting infection with HIV among homosexual men is usually attributed to contact with semen during unprotected receptive anal intercourse or other practices associated with the exchange of body fluids...
Homosexual males have an increased risk of a variety of sexually transmitted diseases other than HIV infection. These include gonorrhea, syphilis, and human papillomavirus infection, as well as hepatitis. Perianal carcinomas also occur more frequently in this group.
