SORE THROAT WARNING

-

There has recently been an uptick of lethal throat and tonsil cancers in the U. S., due mainly to high- risk HPV infections among men and women ( usually transmitte­d through oral sex). Why now? The answer is because we live on an increasing­ly chemical planet that disrupts the health of all living organisms. The throat and mouth are too large to effectivel­y swab with a PAP smear technique, so screening is not simple. And doctors don’t screen for HPV in the throat nearly as much as they should. If you have had a chronic sore throat that won’t go away after several weeks, or if you have any non- healing ulcers in your mouth, please get tested for HPV.
