“Men who perform oral sex on women are more likely to get a rare form of mouth and throat cancer, new research is warning.”
First, I must confess that I’m one of those people who believe that sex should be something only discuss in private. Having said that, when it affects our cultures, we must speak out about it. This is a matter of life.
In celebrity culture, sex is commodity. Marketers use sex to sell their products and services. Advertisers do. Politicians use sex to sell their ideas. Film directors use sex to publicise their movies. Thus, sex is a powerful tool.
When people walk away from their own indigenous cultures and adapt to the celebrity culture, they find themselves in unfavourable situations. Culture and health go hand-in-hand.
Below is an article which illustrates the point.
The risk is lower among women who had less than five oral sex partners in their lifetimes.
“An estimated eight out of 10 British adults will be infected with the HPV virus at some point in their lives.”
HPV 16 can trigger cervical and throat cancer while HPV 18 can only trigger cervical cancer.
Men who perform oral sex on women more likely to get mouth and throat cancer
It is transmitted to the mouth and throat mostly by performing oral sex and appears to cause about 70 per cent of cancers around the throat area.
These oropharyngeal cancers can appear at the back of the throat, base of the tongue, or tonsils.”
“HPV-related cancers approximately tripled in British men and doubled in British women between 1995 and 2011.
Among men who did not smoke, cancer-causing oral HPV was rare among everyone who had less than five oral sex partners, although the chances of having oral HPV infection did increase with number of oral sexual partners, and with smoking.
Women ages 20 to 69, for example, had a frequency of infection of just over 1 per cent, compared to 6 per cent for men ages 20 to 69.
Men ages 50 to 59 were most likely to have an infection at 8.1 per cent of any age group.
Oral sex was clearly associated with a higher prevalence of infection.”
Stay away from it.
