Teenage VD rises
Experts fear that one in 10 British teenagers carries some form of sexually-transmitted infection, possibly without realising it. They also fear young people are ignoing safe-sex messages about the use of condoms.
And poor sex education is not helping the problems of disease and teenage pregnancy, says a report by the Aids Research and Education Trust and the schools health and education unit at Exeter University. Only 12 per cent of the 300 schools surveyed said they taught about safe sex.
