Oral Sex May Be Linked to Rise in Certain Cancers

Categories: News

Finding out oral sex may lead to higher incidences of certain types of cancer is like finding out puppies may give you a stroke or rainbows can blind you. It is just horrible. Yet, that's exactly what a new study suggests. The study links the up-tick in certain types of head and neck cancers to the human papillomavirus (HPV) which can be transmitted through oral sex.

According to studies 75-80% of sexually active Americans will get the virus at some point in their lives, and about 45% of those between the ages of 20 and 24 currently carry it. The virus can manifest by causing warts, but is also known as a trigger of certain types of cancers.

Reports U.S. News:
The researchers also reported that cancers of the tonsil and base of the tongue have been increasing every year since 1973, and wrote that "widespread oral sex practices among adolescents may be a contributing factor in this increase."

The researchers concluded that in their study, oral sex was "strongly associated" with oropharyngeal cancer, but noted that they could not "rule out transmission through direct mouth-to-mouth contact" such as French kissing.

In 90 percent of cases of HPV infection in the body, the immune system clears HPV naturally within two years, according to federal health agencies, but in some cases, certain types of HPV can lead to cervical cancer or less common malignancies, such as oropharyngeal cancer. A 2010 Swedish study, in fact, suggested that the rise in oropharyngeal squamous cell cancer in a number of countries "is caused by a slow epidemic of HPV infection-induced [cancers]."
This is such sad news for blow job enthusiasts and vageterians everywhere. Though, girls are now regularly vaccinated against the most common strains of cancer-causing HPV.

If young 'ho's would learn more about hygiene, the possibility of hooking up with infected partners, waiting to be as sure as possible, using protection, or just stopped spreading it for anyone, disease would be the exception rather than the rule. It is scary to know that a piece of beaver cake, cherry pie, or fur tart can result in clitanoma, pussyitis, toungus, or worse - dickbegoneatoma. YIKES. Clean that body up.

Really Kyle, "hire"??This simply ejects me from your article in the very first sentence. Really? HIGH⇧so hard? Just add er, that's pretty straightforward. A dictionary can be a great source of confirmation, or not, as in this case. This makes me doubt the veracity of all that follows.. sorry, that's just how things work.

Lick the alphabet. It makes you appear creative, it's an easy diagram to remember, it's like "aaaaa.... beeeee.... ceeee." She's think you're from fuckin' Europe or somethin: "OH GOD, WHERE'D YOU LEARN THAT, OHHH," and you're going "A, B, C, D, E, F, G."

"Blame his editor, that's there[sic] job." < Appreciated and true, however I've this query-Is no one accountable for their own actions anymore? Is it always for somebody else to clean up? Are we so compartmentalized that we operate on a need-to-know basis? Water seeks it's own level. Am I not water? Educators ought to be educated; not deciphered. But it's only a suggestion.. kinda like a firm handshake implies: 'Bright & Focused.' Although not necessarily true.~fini~
