A couple more links to HPV/cervical cancer research:

43% of college women contract HPV in 36 month period:


“Females aged 13 to 21 years who attended 2 family planning clinics in the San Francisco bay area; 496 had prevalent HPV infection and 105 were HPV-negative.” (And an additional 54 infections occurred during the study period in the negative girls)


I think what these studies and research projects show is that most women will have an HPV infection at some time during their lifetime. Luckily, the vast majority will develop an immunity and there will be no harmful effects.

I think what this and previously posted research shows is that a positive link between circumcision status and HPV/cervical cancer would be difficult, if not impossible to establish. The fact is that the majority of women will have an HPV infection at some time in their life. Most will never realize they ever had the infection. Only a tiny fraction of those infected will go on to develop cervical cancer. Linking that cancer to an intact penis is virtually impossible.
