The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has found that students who have never had sex rate significantly and consistently better in nearly all health-related behaviors than sexually active peers.

The report examined a large array of health behaviors of high school students according to their self-reported sexual activity, including dating violence to substance abuse, to drunk driving, to carrying weapons. The major conclusion from the report is quite stark:

  • Virgin students rate significantly and consistently better in nearly all health-related behaviors than their sexually active peers. They do so by remarkably stunning measures.

Just one more piece of evidence that waiting to have sex is an important part of a teenage lifestyle that contributes to healthier and happier lives. For more information read the report on the Centers for Disease Control website.
