Oral Sex May Cause More Throat Cancer Than Smoking in Men, Researchers Say

Does this finding make you think twice about performing oral sex on women?

You're safe only if you stick to one partner who doesn't have sexual contact with anyone else and does not have HPV (note that there are many strains of HPV - some of which cannot be detected through laboratory tests).

Perhaps someone can invent a "mouth condom" someday.

That is well known.

So now they can only take it up their ass! And that is not even safe without the rubber.

Yu-Kym,

It appears you are almost making the case for monogamous relations!

You're safe only if you stick to one partner who doesn't have sexual contact with anyone else and does not have HPV...

One partner and one who has not engaged in frequent sexual relations with others can only be met in monogamous relationships.

Perhaps there is a case for marriage.

The excerpts from bloomberg News says this research was done in USA.

With most Americans being poor and bankrupt, they don't even have the money to pay for hot water to wash their bloody genetals.

Hence poor hygene will give people cancer!

"A virus spread by oral sex may cause more cases of throat cancer in men than smoking, a finding that spurred calls for a new large-scale test of a drug used against the infection.

Researchers examined 271 throat-tumor samples collected over 20 years ending in 2004 and found that the percentage of oral cancer linked to the human papillomavirus, or HPV, surged to 72 percent from about 16 percent, according to a report released yesterday in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. By 2020, the virus-linked throat tumors -- which mostly affected men -- will become more common than HPV-caused cervical cancer, the report found.

HPV is known for infecting genitals. The finding that it can spread to the throat and cause cancer may increase pressure on Merck & Co., the second-largest U.S. drugmaker, to conduct large-scale trials to see if its vaccine Gardasil, which wards off cervical cancer in women, also prevents HPV throat infections."

Anon,

What a load of manure.

Not one correct fact or reference.

Most American's are not poor. However when a population of over 300 millions are involved there are enough poor that can be used, or abused in terms being an example.

This aspect of politics being in your face has caught you. American's can use most any example, say most anything about a policy or political personality and not fear retribution.

Could you fabricate an extreme story with just an element of truth about an SG politician, and not face jail time?

Due diligence is worth considering.

Wikipedia says 20% of USA population live below poverty line, i.e. around 60 million, which is greater than population of Canada + Australia.

David said...

Anon,

20% according to Wikipedia, hardly the authoritative source. Even if the poverty level is 20%, that is far from a MAJORITY.

The U.S. Census Bureau, considered a reliable source, calculates what the America's poverty rate is and how many people are living in poverty. For 2008, the poverty rate was about $22,000 for a family of four. There were approximately 39 million people considered living at or below the poverty rate.

Means-tested programs are limited to those at or below the poverty line. However, many welfare benefits go beyond this threshold to include persons who have incomes below 200 percent the poverty level, or about $44,000 per year for a family of four. Close to one-third of the U.S. population falls within this income range. A family of four at this income level would be eligible for approximately $28,000 worth of federal and state welfare benefits per year.

Since 1964 the United Stats have spent $8–10 trillion on antipoverty programs. This spending has resulted in no net change in the number of poor.

What has worked, when funded, are job training and education programs.

By education I mean classes that teach useable skills, not like degrees in Womens' studies, horticulture, art studies and African American studies.

What is true is that the majority of America's poor, have a home with a miccrowave, one or two televisions, and most often internet access. It has been pointed out by many that to be poor in America still has one living better than 90% of the world's populace.

David, what is most amazing about American people is that they are TOTALLY BLIND TO THE TRUTH! They are always blowing HOT AIR, HOT AIR, boasting, boasting without telling the underlying TRUTH!

They will always say things to suit themselves without ever mentioning or disclosing the truth!

Take your statement about the American poor and analyse it. It is boasting without telling the truth, quote:-

What is true is that the majority of America's poor,

have a home with a microwave ( a brand new one sells at K-Mart for $45, thanks to China! Even if you are receiving social security, you can definitely afford $45),

one or two televisions ( a brand new high definition LCD TV sells for around $100 at Wall-Mart, thanks to China ! Even if you are receiving social security, you can definitely afford it),

and most often internet access ( you can definitely afford $20 per month, which is the usual cost all over the world, even if you are on social security. After all it is cheaper than a packet of marijuana !)

It has been pointed out by many that to be poor in America still has one living better than 90% of the world's populace – oooh that is crap crap because the poor all over the world can live like that mentioned above – thanks to CHINA which made that possible!

Have you ever read a book written by an American housewife entitled “Try to live a year without buying anything made in China!”. She discover that without buying anything “made in Chine”, her cost of living jumped by 500%!

So even if you are typing away on the internet in USA, we won't know you are the 20% poor Americans becaue internet cost only $20 per month and the computer is only few hundred ( less than $300 ) bucks, thanks to China which made that possible!

Gee David, how you even gone into a poor African or SE Asian family home made of atap ( i.e. thatched roof ) and made of simple plywood, there you will find microwave and LCD TV - all made in China.

She made it possible for the poor the world over to enjoy luxuries denied to them decades ago!

Simply type "Poverty in the United States" into Wikipedia, and look at the pictures.

They are horribly depressing showing the poor in USA!

No wonder the campaign to "take Over Wall Street" has been going on for the last 3 weeks already!

The discussion has gone off topic. Please keep to the topic. Thanks.

It will give people cervix cancer too!

Well everything you do has a risk. But well giving oral sex to a woman is not a risk, which would be too great or not worth to take!;)

Besides the number of women getting sick for giving blow jobs must be way higher, given men´s general poorer hygiene and penetration into a woman´s mouth or even throat.

Btw I wonder if this study was sponsored by certain religious groups...?

Anonymous said...

Yes it does, I love to give oral but now I'm not so keen.

David said...

Brigitte,

The study was carried out by on Oncologist at Ohio State University.

Not a relgious organization, if anything Ohio State is profoundly secular.

Tax supported univerisities like Ohio State do not and cannot mix religous views with research.

Now that I am back to being a single alpha male, I will greatly miss the extreme pleasures of oral sex from now on. You just cant have oral sex with anyone. Safety, hygiene and cleanliness is paramount. Once any of these factors are compromised, you best abstain from any form of sex.
