    Very very very sad.
    If you ask me, they should give the vaccines to men and women alike, even if it only helps in most cases or half cases, better than nothing!
    Apparently HPV is responsible of many cancers, probably some undiagnosed yet. Should be a vaccine EVERYONE gets.

    But they're forgetting that everyone who has cancer drank water!
    So water causes cancer!

    I remember reading about this years ago, I dont think there's anything new, maybe just another set of studies that confirms it.
    Thats certainly not going to prevent me from doing oral sex [​IMG] As long as I dont abuse it I should be fine and so should be my gal

    The study is probably financed by the tobacco industry or catholic church [​IMG]

    Now? it has happened for a long time and is one of the main drives for women at least to be get vaccinated against HPV. I remember arguing with some idiots that was trying to prevent a school district wide HPV vaccination on the grounds it might make some people more promiscuous.

    Except there is a direct and proven link between some STDs and some forms of cancer (HPV, for example, as FAST pointed out).

    I suggest that the research group behind this supposed "study" learns the basics of the Scientific Method.

    So it went from STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) to STI (Sexually Trasmitted Infections) to STC (Sexually Transmitted Cancer!).

    I find this hard to believe. Smoking has to do sooo much more damage than giving oral sex...............

    There are no words to describe how much I want this study to be discredited.
