The New STD That Can Kill You

 
 
 
It appears that there is a new STD that is killing men and its related to oral s*x.  The Human papillomavirus (HPV) was once believed to have no effect on men, but it’s now found to be harmful to men as well as well as women.  In fact, giving someone unprotected oral s*x or receiving it from them if they are infected can seriously jeopardize your health.  A new study has found a rapid increase in the number of throat and neck cancers over the last 12 years, with thousands of new cases occurring every single year.
 
BlackDoctor.org discusses the issue in more detail, noting that throat, mouth and neck cancers were once caused by tobacco use.  But although the use of tobacco has declined, the rates of certain cancers related to HPV have been on the rise.  The rate of STD infection is even greater in the black community, where a lower marital rate has led to an increase in the number of s*x partners.  One researcher at a major university told YBW that he randomly tested 20 men in a barbershop and found that half of them were infected with Chlamydia without even knowing it.
 
 
According to the Journal of Clinical Oncology, over 11,000 cases of cervical cancer will be diagnosed this year, but the number has been declining.  Women regularly get Pap Smears, but men are less likely to go to the doctor.  As a result, the number of HPV-positive oropharyngeal cancer cases will rise to 8,700, with 7,400 of those cases in men.  The disease then festers within the mouth and throat of the victim, causing cancerous sores to emerge for those who are undiagnosed.
