The Kiss of Death

Kissing may kill you, really! I’m not kidding. The HPV can be transmitted by kissing. There has been a 25% increase in oral cancer in the last 10 years.

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. There is a movement to stop male circumsion. However, women whos partner’s are not circumcised have a higher rate of cervical cancer.
