One in Every Three College Women Is Infected

HPV: Major Cause of Cancer

    The New England Journal of Medicine (April 18, 1996) reported that approximately one in every three female college  students in America is infected with a venereal disease called Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). The Medical Institute for Sexual Health (April, 1994) reported that the greatest danger of HPV is that it is the probable cause of almost all cervical cancer.  Based on statistics provided by the American Cancer Society, it is estimated that in 1994 there were 16,000 new cases of cervical cancer and 5,000 related deaths in the United States.

    HPV also causes genital warts on both men and women that range in size from a small tick to the size of a cauliflower. These
warts can be very difficult to cure, and sometimes require surgery.

    Dr. Stephen Curry of the New England Medical Center in Boston was quoted in TIME magazine as saying “This virus (HPV) is rampant. If it were not for AIDS, stories about it would be on the front page of every newspaper.”

    HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) is more contagious and it’s responsible for more deaths (via cervical cancer) than AIDS each year in the U.S. (Centers for Disease Control).
