Blacks slow to clear cervical cancer virus

Full story: MSNBC

Provocative new research might help explain why black women are so much more likely than whites to develop and die from cervical cancer: They seem to have more trouble clearing HPV, the virus that causes the disease.

So don't have sex outside of marriage nor commit adultery. Sleep only with those who will take care of you your entire life. If you must, entertain yourself. It doesn't require other people to use, abuse, and objectify for the stupid, wasteful, selfish reason of wanting to get your rocks off.

BTW, this virus works anally too. That is why Farrah Fawcett (and many gay men) is dead. She had anal cancer that was caused by this virus. People who have unprotected anal sex should get pap smears for back there.

Also, such diseases are punishment from God from misusing the body and misusing sex. So I have no pity nor mercy on anyone who was too stupid or immoral to not get them. I only feel sorry when it was a result of nonconsensual acts (eg. rape/incest) or someone was extorted, exploited, or tricked.

No, the usual stuff like heart, lungs, or brain, or the criminal actions of people outside their own groups.

As for sex with animals, that happens in every race, and fortunately very little.

There was a joke about that. A man was in the military and left for 18 months. When he got back, he sued for divorce because his wife just got out of the hospital with a newborn. That meant it had to have been conceived in the middle of his tour. In court, her defense was that his spirit impregnated her. The judge was unsure of the claim and wanted to find an expert witness. He asked if anyone in the courtroom ever had sexual relations with a ghost. An old man who was hard of hearing raised his hand, and the just asked for him to approach the bench. When the judge asked if he had ever had sex with a ghost, he said no, saying he misunderstood the judge. He thought the judge asked about sex with a goat.

If Blacks are slow to clear cervical cancer virus, I think that the health care industry needs to be more observant of how Blacks are being treated in the medical system. There are other statisitcs showing that Blacks recieve inaquate, inferior, less aggressive health care treatment than Whites, recieve less cancer screenings than Whites, misdiginosises and alot of doctors are more rude to Black patients than White patients and are less thorough in their explaining medical treatment to Blacks so its no surprise that Blacks would have more problems related to health care treatment than Whites.

That is part of it, but not the entire story. There are different risk factors across ethnic lines. A portion of that is due to culture and lifestyle (eg.- diet and what foods can be afforded, or sexual behaviors in this case), some comes from skin color (eg.- diseases related to vitamin D deficiency), and the rest comes from genes. So ironically, political correctness is killing people of color. In the past, researchers only experimented on White men, so disease variations in women and people of color were missed, and racism and sexism were blamed for more than their fair share.

For instance, take heart disease. The older drugs are about 60% effective among Caucasian men, but only about 30-40% effective in women of color. So that isn't because of racism, but a difference in genetics, and political correctness discouraging researchers from investigating by race and gender.

That is not to say that institutionalized racism is not a factor. We all know better than that. But some of the efforts to try to stop racism are actually making things more dangerous for people of color. However, science is starting to catch up. With heart disease, doctors are starting to prescribe high dose vitamin D to their older African-American patients, particularly if they are bed-ridden. Also, manufacturers have recognized their poor track record with African-Americans and have launched research studies to try to find better drugs that are tailored to specific populations.

As for treatment, keep in mind that doctors often mistreat poorer patients, older patients, and patients on Medicare regardless of race. So the racism here would be further up the line (ie., why there are a greater percentage of African-Americans in the poor house).

Going back to cardiac care, a favorite example of mine in showing that the connection between health and race/gender isn't as clear as many would assume, one problem is the different manifestation of symptoms. While a man having a heart attack typically has the strong chest pains and pain in the left arm, the pain may not be quite as severe in women, and it may be in a different place. They may get more of a burning sensation, and it may be assumed to be gallbladder trouble. I know a woman who helped in a hospital cafeteria. She had an appointment to have her gallbladder taken out. However, a couple of days before the appointment, she passed out in the hospital kitchen. She has coronary artery disease, I think. So the gallbladder was a misdiagnosis. Her pain was coming from her heart but felt like it was coming from her liver. Luckily, she was in a hospital already. They quickly got her in their cardiac wing, gave her a stress test, and did immediate surgery to put in a stent. She was just in the right place at the right time.

That's right. Say in here on the Internet instead of the streets where you won't find yourself wearing your ass for a top hat
