Oral intimacy is not an uncommon term in today’s day and age but shocking news regarding the act is making heads turn around the globe.
Doctors are now claiming that oral intimacy is one of the leading causes of throat cancers in the US and other statistics regarding the matter are truly blowing people’s minds in a negative context.
Oral intimacy can increase the chances of oropharyngeal cancer by more than 6 to 8 times, health researchers went on to add. And the news is now leaving people shocked beyond words can explain.

For those who might not be aware, oropharyngeal cancer is another name given to a kind of throat cancer.
It has arisen by a huge amount when compared to statistics from the past.Similarly, doctors claim that raising awareness on the topic might seem taboo in some societies but the fact that so many Americans are engaging in it makes you wonder how important it is to discuss it.
Doctors claim the more the number of different people you have intimacy with, especially the oral kind. the greater your chances of developing the malignant disease.
Those people who have oral intimacy with six or more different partners will have a greater likelihood of developing this condition at a faster pace than usual.
70% of cancers of this kind tend to arise due to the HPV infection. In some cases, the infection can lead to malignancy and that is oropharyngeal carcinoma.
And while a lot of people may never know that they lived a life suffering from the infection, those that develop cancer will know it arose due to the infection that’s transmitted through s*xual means.
