Study shows link between HPV and heart disease
USA Today

Cancer-causing strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV) may increase a woman’s odds for heart disease, even if she doesn’t have any of the recognized cardiovascular risk factors, a new study suggests. It’s the first investigation of a possible link between heart disease and HPV, which is one of the most common sexually transmitted pathogens in the United States and already well known for causing cervical cancers and other malignancies. Vaccines do exist that guard against HPV.
