TOP 10 THings you must know about HPV
1. It is a type of human papillomavirus
2. It causes cancer and can cause genital warts
3. It can affect the mouth, anus, and cervix
4. There are two types: high-risk and low-risk HPV
5. The vaccine for cervical cancer does not exist yet. That is why there is no national vaccination program in China. However, some provinces in China have organized programs to vaccinate people against HPV, but it is still very difficult for many people to get a vaccination.
6. Many people think that the only vaccine against cancer is sex education. But this virus can affect any part of the body. If you do not go out and get vaccinated, you will be more likely to develop cancer later. So people need to receive sex education and practice safe sex.
7. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common viruses that have caused so much damage to our world in the past decades. When we talk about this virus, people often hear other terms like “cervical cancer” “cervix cancer’ or just “cervical cancer.” It actually refers to many diseases.
8. There are 2 types of Human papillomavirus
9. In China they are named High-risk HPV and Low-risk HPV. And in America, they are called Differentiated or Trivalent.
10. Some studies have found that the development of cervical cancer is highly correlated with the infection of HPV at an early age. Therefore, the patients who receive treatment after being infected by HPV at young ages, when their body is still developing, might be better able to fight off HPV disease.
There are around 300 million new cases annually across the globe from HPV. More than half of all cervical cancer cases occur in people under 40 years old. However, now the cure for that is not easy. People need to undergo treatment for cervical cancer, which is very expensive. At present, few medical institutions treat cervical cancer in the whole country and the number is increasing year by year.
The United Nations Population Fund has started its first project to provide vaccines to poor countries and low-income families. Since last December it has been operating a small clinic in Shanghai. The main purpose of this project is to help young girls to have access to vaccines. This is done by providing them affordable health care. And also to promote women’s empowerment. From my side, I think it’s not too late for those in desperate situations that want to protect themselves and for others that want to eradicate poverty.

The U.S. government has issued guidance for local public health leaders to implement prevention, screening, testing, and surveillance measures to combat HPV. For US public health officials to meet these requirements, a range of information products must be released and shared. One such example includes educational resources and guides for schools, community-based organizations, parents, doctors, healthcare professionals, and researchers.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is not just cancer, it is also a serious threat to healthy lives. With millions of Americans suffering from various kinds of HPV-related cancers, it is crucial to provide essential information to help prevent and manage these illnesses. Early detection of HPV can lead to long-term control of related diseases, such as cervical cancer, and prevention of other cancers.
The World Health Organization has estimated that in 2016 around 18.8 million people died as a result of communicable diseases including HIV and malaria. To put it into perspective, it’s about the same as dying from flu per year. In addition, more than 700 million adults are at least 20 years old.
It was reported that it costs $17.6 billion annually to address communicable diseases in low-income countries. By comparison, it would cost only $3.3 billion to treat communicable diseases in rich countries, according to a study from Global Citizen. This difference shows us that one disease can significantly impact another. It can also lead to greater dependency and ultimately lower life expectancy.
One thing I really miss is traveling during the holidays and seeing friends and family members whom I have been unable to see in the past year because of Covid-19. Recently I wrote about how to enjoy Christmas without spending $1,072 this year, or $1,700 in 2018, to buy presents for kids who weren’t in your class at all this year. Then last week I learned how to make the perfect gingerbread house instead and made it myself. Now there are online videos to teach me how to mix the dough with sugar and butter. I love baking things, which makes me feel happy and calm. Plus, thanks to YouTube, I have discovered new recipes that are delicious and fun!
It’s crazy because just recently I was reading a magazine and a video came out saying that “the pandemic won’t end, then I will be having dinner with my loved ones and I’ll hug them!”. Well, last week I watched a video on Youtube by Dr. Tom Li from UCLA Health that mentioned they are going to test a vaccine for Covid-19. Now I don’t know how long it will take to find a potential vaccine for Covid-19.
We can use mobile phones to avoid getting coronavirus. The CDC has stated that several strategies can reduce the chances of infecting someone with COVID or SARS. A major step is wearing masks and a social distance. Scientists in Taiwan have developed a mask that allows full visibility.
Amazingly, at the moment many cities around the world are empty and people are having less desire to travel. Maybe the majority will have forgotten about this news, or maybe they are just tired of traveling. Nevertheless, even though there is little chance we can hug people we still need to stay away from crowded places.
My husband was born to British parents and grew up in Hong Kong, which is why he knows so much about the culture and history of the UK. Because of his background in geography, my husband wanted to learn more about these historical facts. He decided to search
