Tobacco Use Connected to Increased Risk of Oral HPV

Tobacco use has been associated with an increased risk of oral HPV-16, a virus linked to oral and throat cancers. People who used tobacco in any form tested positive more often than those who had not used or quit the use of tobacco, a study by Johns Hopkins University found.

Based on blood tests, the risk grew by 30 percent for every three cigarettes a person smoked.

“We know from other research that most people who have HPV clear that infection after about a year,” Gypsyamber D’Souza, one of the senior researchers, said to Reuters.
