We're #1

In sexually transmitted diseases (among developed countries). The USA set a new record for cases of STDs in 2008. Proving yet again the abstinence-only sex education works (if you're trying to increase unwanted pregnancies and bring back syphilis).

Teen girls have notably high rates of infection for gonorrhea and chlamydia, so yeah, realistic sex education could help with this.
