75% of sexually active homosexuals are carrying Human Papiloma Virus, study suggests
BARCELONA, December 2, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Preliminary results from a Spanish study of sexually-active homosexuals indicates that seventy-five percent are carrying the Human Papiloma Virus (HPV), according to a report by Europa Press.
The study, which is seeking to follow sexually active homosexuals who normally use condoms, has so far followed 40 subjects over a period of several months, and has arrived at a preliminary figure of 75 percent HPV infection.
The figure is more than twice the average for Spanish youth, according to Europa Press, which reports that 30 percent are carriers of HPV.
The Human Papiloma Virus, which comes in hundreds of varieties, is believed to cause cervical cancer in women and penile cancer in men. It is also a marker for risk of contracting the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), the virus that is believed to cause AIDS.
As LifeSiteNews has reported previously, sexually-active homosexuals are far more likely to contract a variety of crippling diseases, including AIDS, hepatitis, syphilis and staph infections. The high level of infectious diseases among homosexuals is related to high levels of promiscuity. Homosexuals have an estimated number of lifetime sexual partners ranging into the hundreds, according to some studies.
The high rate of HIV infection among homosexuals has led the US Department of Health and Human Services to prohibit men who have committed sodomy with men after 1977 from donating blood.
