Something else that peeves me off...

When it comes to teaching high school students to avoid risky sexual behavior, a Mexican study appears to support what U.S. studies have already suggested — no current approach works.

Students here who took a 15-week HIV-prevention course that promoted condom use were no more likely to report using a condom during sex a year later than were students who took the standard sex-education course, said Juan Pablo Gutierrez, B.Sc., and colleagues, at the National Institute of Public Health here.

The study, reported online in the BMJ, involved nearly 11,000 first-year students at 40 public high schools in the state of Morelos.

Are they all mentally retarded? Memory span of 1 second, perhaps?

Really, they should all f#ck off and die... or spend a week at an AIDS ward in a developing country....

Grrr...
