Oral sex causes cancer

News & Politics

Mike Russo of Groupthinktank spots a study that says HPV can cause cancer of the tonsils.

According to The Cancer Herald, Swedish scientists at the Karolinska institute think that rising rates of oral sex can explain why tonsil cancer has been getting more common over the past few decades.

There is a vaccine that is 100% safe and effective at preventing HPV when it is administered to young girls. Of course, certain anti-sex zealots are doing everything they can to keep the HPV vaccine out of the standard pediatric immunization schedule.

Maybe if they know that HPV imperils the tonsils of men as well as the cervixes of women, they might soften their stance.
