HPV is main cause of cervical cancer which is second most common cause of cancer death in women

NEW YORK, November 15, 2002 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The strain of the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV-16) that is believed responsible for at least half of all cervical cancer infects nearly one in five U.S. women between the ages of 12 and 59. The November 15 issue of the Journal of Infectious Diseases reports that the virus is also prevalent in men where nearly one in 10 are infected.

Although media coverage on the HPV study did not mention it, condoms are useless in preventing HPV. Even condom-promoting Health Canada is forced to admit "barrier contraceptives, which have been successful in reducing transmission of many sexually transmitted diseases, do not appear to be effective in preventing HPV infection." Poignantly, Health Canada's information on HPV indicates that HPV is the principal cause of cervical cancer which is in turn the second most common cause of cancer death in women worldwide."
