from MedPage Today
Poor oral health is an independent risk factor for oral infection with human papillomavirus, including the strains associated with cancer, researchers reported. In a nationally representative survey, people who reported they had poor oral health had a 56 percent increase in the risk of HPV infection in the mouth and throat, according to Thanh Cong Bui and colleagues at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in Houston.
