We all know the increased risk of oral cancer in smokers and alcohol drinkers, but many people are not aware of the oral cancer risks with the HPV (Human Papiloma Virus). HPV is responsible for over 85% of head and neck cancers. We are aware of the increased risks of cervical cancer in women infected with HPV.

Ok, here’s another interesting fact about HPV. Male circumcision can reduce the risks of HPV transmission. God knew what he was talking about when he told Abraham to get circumcised.
