Oral sex could be hazardous to your health.?

Oral sex could be hazardous to your health.

So say researchers who note that oral cancer stemming from the human papilloma virus is more common in the U.S. than oral cancer caused by abusing tobacco.

Researchers found a 225% increase in oral cancer cases in the U.S. from 1974 to 2007, mainly among white men, said Maura Gillison, a cancer researcher at Ohio State University.

The more oral-sex partners a man had, the greater his cancer risk, Gillison told a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Tobacco use remains the leading cause of oral cancer in the rest of the world.

There as many as 150 different types of human papilloma viruses, and about 40 of those can be sexually transmitted, according to the National Cancer Institute.

HPV infections often go undetected and are the main cause of cervical cancer in women.

Scientists are examining whether Gardasil and Cervarix, the HPV vaccines approved to prevent genital warts and cervical cancer, could have a significant impact on oral cancer.

In the meantime, researchers are urging doctors and educators to start talking to teens in particular about the risks of oral sex.

Knowing this, what do you think

Yes, oral sex has risks. You can catch many SYDs, not just HPV from it. That is why it is important to be checked for STDs, and make sure that you use a dental dam or condom for oral sex with people who you are unsure if they are clean. There is no test for HPV in men, but women can be tested. Also, not every strain of HPV causes cancer. Only a handful of the 50 some odd strains cause cancer and a handful more cause warts. HPV can also be contracted from touching the skin of an infected area (giving a h*ndj*b) to someone who has HPV, so that is almost as dangerous. But there is just as much risk in oral sex as there is in any sexual contact but should we stop having sex?

All you can do is be in a faithful relation ship and only perform oral sex with that person. Make sure you both receive STD checks every year, regardless if you have been with just them! STAY SAFE.
