Study: Oral Sex Is Main Cause of Throat Cancer

 

Scientists of Ohio State University in Columbus say that oral cancer stemming from the virus spread during oral sex is more common than throat cancer caused by tobacco or alcohol consumption.

This especially applies to people under the age of 50. Researchers report that cancer provoked by oral sex has been on the rise in the last ten years.

Furthermore, the number of your sex partners is linked to oral HPV infection. "The higher the number of partners that you’ve had, the greater the odds that you’d have an oral infection," Professor Gillison explains.

I thought HPV based cancer only happen in the cervix, guess I was wrong, and I hope the Ohio scientists will choke on their own report.

Again, a virus causes cancer, not oral sex. If your partners are clean it wouldn´t cause it.

So what they really mean to say is that sleeping around is the main cause of throat cancer.

HPV is too common to be the cause of any cancer. More likely just an indicator.

By that logic, stem cells are even more common with Billions in our body at any given time and every now and then one of them might decide to turn into a cancer.

I always use strawberry flavoured condoms so surely my girl would not get cancer.

  if I am correct  
 
HPV is capable of infecting any portion of the body with sufficient mucous/moist tissue. Therefore, if the HPV virus likes the cervix, then it´s only logical that it would equally like the esophagus. On a second note however, this would be further reason to promote sexual exclusivity versus the current rather promiscuous behavior of todays sexually active youth. Either that or promote condom use, but good luck trying to convince a 17 year old male that he needs to wear a condom during oral sex!

  Researchers  
 
again prove their stupidity or their tenacity. Depending on if they actually believe their own b_ll_hit.

In other research... Study proves: Sex main cause of cancer.

  Well,  
 
you people seem to know more about medicine than anybody on the planet. Let´s hope you don´t get HPV in your throat and die of throat cancer. You are all a piece of work.

  @lurker  
 
no we just know more than you. Like there are over 200 types of HPV, and it´s the most prevalent STI of all (40% of malews age 20-24 have contracted one strain, not all strains stay with you, keep that in mind) by age 50 there´s an 80% chance you´ll have at one point been infected.

(go to the wiki and read the sources, that´s the only time I pull wiki info is if there´s a reliable source attached to the statement)
