HPV thru Oral sex

Doing Everything right gives no pass from PAIN

Being Monogamous, Married, Faithful and Loving just isn’t enough anymore, it seems.

Opposed as I am to all vaccinations, even so, I feel I must stipulate that in this case as well, I remain steadfastly opposed to any and all these inoculations no matter how they are transmitted.  (sexually, air-born and so on).  Our bodies are over-run with an enormous toxic load quite apart from our efforts to ingest only organic, local and healthy food stuff.  We are subjected to toxic fumes in our air, water  and for many – – the prescription meds we are taking.   So we don’t need more to screw up our inner eco-system which can impact or immobilize our immune system.

One could logically expect that one’s physician is checking on all possible perils during annual checkups and so on, BECAUSE HPV  CAN BE DETECTED.  Sexually active individuals must remain vigilant.

 

Cancer culprit found

 

Two-and-a-half years after beating throat cancer, Michael Douglas is attributing the disease to a virus he contracted during sex.

In an interview with the British newspaper The Guardian, the 68-year-old actor said the tumor at the back of his throat stemmed from the human papillomavirus, a sexually transmitted infection known for its role in causing cervical cancer in women.

“As we’re learning more about mouth and throat cancers, we’re seeing that many of these are caused by HPV, which can be picked up by oral sex, and these are on the rise,” said Dr. Richard Besser, chief health and medical editor for ABC News.

About 6,700 American men a year are diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancer tied to HPV, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — and many cases could be prevented by an HPV vaccine, experts say.
