HPV: Genital Piercings Allow Entry of the Virus; CBCD Reviews Scientific Evidence

Genital piercings increase the risk of an HPV infection. The CBCD reviews a medical study and recommends two natural HPV remedies.


Rochester, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/23/2014 --"Infected with the HPV virus? We recommend taking Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR." - John Evans, CBCD

In men, genital piercings includes at least 9 different kinds of penile piercings, and in women, at least 9 different kinds of clitoral and other vaginal piercings. These piercings are usually done with a hollow gauge needle and the installation of jewelry into the genitals. (1) Dr. Takahashi and colleagues say in a study published in the International journal of STD & AIDS, that most people are unaware that "minor trauma from a penile ring could facilitate the entry of HPV into mucosal epithelial cells." (1) They also say that condoms are less effective when used by people who have genital piercings. "Condoms are likely to reduce these risks and are therefore useful but these may be more likely to fail in individuals who have genital piercings as body jewelry can damage condoms during intercourse." (1) Dr. Takahashi works at Department of Urology, The Fraternity Memorial Hospital.

According to Dr. Dahl and Dr. Kim, "the majority of newly acquired genital HPV infections are subclinical and asymptomatic (that is, not severe enough to present definite or readily observable symptoms)." (2) However, if someone has HPV and they develop urethral warts, there may be complications. These include, recurrent disease, urethral strictures (blocked urethra) and related problems - reduced urinary flow/urinary obstruction, infertility due to urethral and ejaculatory duct obstruction, and associated malignancies - penile and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (pre-cancerous cellular changes) (2), etc.

Finally, "after a long period of latency, individuals infected with certain HPV subtypes are at risk of developing squamous cell carcinomas." (2).In other words, if someone is infected with certain strains of HPV, they are in danger of developing some types of cancer.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) therefore recommends that individuals infected with HPV take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin formula is effective against EBV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, "individuals infected with the (HPV and other viruses) … reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR." (3) The study authors also wrote that, "we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms." (3) In addition, this natural antiviral was recently proven to reduce mental and physical fatigue in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines.

Both products can be ordered online on the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR websites.

Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

About the CBCD
The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD, is a non-for-profit research center. The mission of the CBCD is to advance the research on the biology of chronic diseases, and to accelerate the discovery of treatments for these diseases. The CBCD published the "Purple" book entitled "Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and the Origin of Chronic Disease" written by Dr. Hanan Polansky. The book presents Dr. Polansky's highly acclaimed scientific theory on the relationship between the DNA of latent (chronic) viruses and the onset of chronic diseases. Dr. Polansky's book is available as a free download from the CBCD website.
