Too much alcohol is a risk factor for HPV in men
Too much alcohol is a risk factor for HPV in men (October 6, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Florida - Drinking too much alcohol may be a risk factor for HPV in men, according to a report published in the BMJ. Researchers studied over 1,300 men taking part in a long term study on HPV. Participants undertook extensive questionnaires regarding their alcohol consumption, sexual history and diet in the preceding year. Results showed a strong association between high alcohol intake and HPV prevalence. These results were independent of the men's number of sexual partner and smoking history, suggesting alcohol itself may impair aspects of the immune system.
