Oral Sex May Cause Cancer

 

A recent study published by the Johns Hopkins University claims that a virus which can be transmitted through oral sex is the cause of certain types of throat cancers and increases risk factor of developing such cancers more than tobacco or alcohol.

The study does not rule out the possibility of passing such cancers from mouth to mouth but added that more extensive research was necessary to concrete the study which sampled only 300 people.

Co-researcher Dr Maura Gillison, reassured the public saying "People should be reassured that oropharyngeal cancer is relatively uncommon and the overwhelming majority of people with an oral HPV infection probably will not get throat cancer."

"The study does not rule out the possibility of passing such cancers from mouth to mouth". Looks like physical intimacy will be another bullet in the Russian Roulet gun.

  On another note ...  
 
Apple Computers announced today that it has developed a computer chip that can store and play music in women's breast implants.

The iBreast will cost between $499 and $599.

This is considered to be a major breakthrough because women are always complaining about men staring at their breasts and not listening to them.

  mmmkay...  
 
so what doesnt cause cancer? everything does, if i ever get cancer (which apparently is impossible to avoid) then ill just die
 
  by: Thearns   05/11/2007 05:32 PM     
  oral sex, smoking, drugs  
 
Whats next? They say everything fun causes cancer. I predict in 2 years they will be saying "internet pirates are 600% more likely to die of cancer than smokers."

They will link walking to Cancer >.>

  Cancer is caused by  
 
Your body incorrectly repairing cells. So technically speaking, the more cells you damage, the more likely you are to get cancer. Walking, eating, keeping your eyes open... all these things cause some amount of extra strain to some group of cells or another. Then again, sleeping for more than 11 hours straight can damage cells too. So yup, we're screwed.

  Small amounts of Saliva -  
 
swallowed over long periods of time causes cancer.

  This is a little serious.  
 
They're not saying that oral sex itself causes cancer, but a common STD, the same one which causes cervical cancer in women. The message here is not to avoid oral sex but to be careful about with whom you have oral sex.

I know cancer has become something of a joke, but let's not lose the important information here.

  Well, if you're smart about who you sleep with . .  
 
You won't get these wacky STDs! If you bang everything on two legs every chance you get, you're probably screwing yourself over! (pun totally intended)

  @bob  
 
In the US and most of western Europe, 1 out of 4 women and 1 out of 5 men have genital herpes alone. 70% of them don't know it, and 90% of transmissions occur when there are no visible symptoms.

Yes, being careful and using protection helps, but just because someone gets an STD doesn't mean they weren't careful or classy in their selection of partner(s). No matter how smart you are about who you sleep with, you're still at risk. Don't forget it.

The article also mentions that people with oral HPV (oral herpes) are unlikely to get throat cancer. Did you know 90% of adults have oral herpes by the time they reach 21? Most often its aquired at some point in childhood just from kissing a relative.

Just trying to put things in perspective for you.

Obviously my last post was too long for you to read.
 
  by: maverick7h     05/12/2007 10:17 AM     
  I gree with both sides  
 
People need to be careful and partners need to be honest (if you have something, tell the other person, it's not like they only want you or not depending on your sex/ STD history).Then again, many people live with conditions and don't know about them (my friend almost committed suicide when i told her to check if she has oral herpes).
More care, more testing/ facilities and education never harm anyone.
