Oral Sex Causes Cancer, New Study Finds

 

Increased popularity in oral sex may be a leading cause in throat cancer, says a recent study. HPV or human papillomavirus has been found to be a larger risk factor than alcohol or tobacco usage.

Dr Ezra Cohen of the University of Chicago Medical Centre said, "It's almost a new disease, in a sense. It's now becoming a dominant sub-type of the disease that we see in our clinic.”

The number of cervical cancer cases may be beaten by HPV throat cancer cases with in the next 10 years if the trend continues. Data has shown that the number of HPV throat cases has increased about 1 percent each year.

  HPV is the cause, not oral sex  
 
correlation != causality

Man I wish you would have tetled this one diferently! If my gf decides to get on SN today she's going to see that women are predispositioned to shopping and BJs cause cancer. GREAT!!!

Now if only we could tie the two together - every $100 shopping = BJ. That would be a good compromise! lol.

While you did rate moderate rather than negative, the title is, in fact, not misleading at all and is true to the source. While I agree that the source and/or the researcher seems to have jumped to conclusions, SN reporters have to summarize the news as it was reported, including headlines. Your rating is, in effect, blaming the SN reporter for errors at the source.

  Next time you're getting down to bidness...  
 
... make sure you politely ask: would you prefer throat cancer, cervical cancer or colon cancer?

  This whole sex thing  
 
is not what its cracked up to be.
If you have Oral Sex you get cancer.
If you have straight sex, you get Herpes, Syphilis or Aids.
And if you masturbate you go blind.
What are we here for, I ask you.

  @BlackWidow  
 
Apparently to go blind, get sick, die and have a good time doing it.

  Relax.  
 
Just relax.

The HPV virus is the virus that causes cold sores, herpes, cancers, you name it. It is transmitted sexually. Having the virus doesn't mean you will get these things, it just emans there is a chance. The MAJORITY of people carry HPV. According to wikipedia as many as 90% of people in the United States.

So relax.

Also, if you have the virus already, theres no reason to stop giving head.

  Also:  
 
From wiki: Approximately 130 human papillomavirus (HPV) types have been identified.

This study (as far as I can tell) didn't discriminate between strains of HPV.

  @Jamesmc  
 
What if you already have the virus, have cancer, herpes and are blind.
Relax you say, I'm getting decidedly nervous. I'd jump on a plane and go to a deserted island, but with my luck there'd be a shoe bomber on board.
 
  by: BlackWidow   06/15/2008 05:50 AM     
  @james  
 
You're right about the 130 or so different strains. You might care to know, happily, that only 6-8 of these variations have the potential to cause cancer, as far we've been able to see so far.


Virtually any activity can result in a negative outcome. I think we need to stop wasting money on studies where the inevitable conclusion is already known, and instead start letting our kids play dodge ball again.

Is "dodgeball" slang for oral sex?

  HPV Vaccine  
 
At A Glance: The HPV vaccine is routinely recommended for girls 11 and 12 years of age and is given in a series of three injections over a six-month period.
Is only for the uninfected, hence 11yo.
