Hold it for a second. In what I wrote I noted several things:
1) Not every female with HPV develops cervical cancer.
2) Those that develop cervical cancer also have HPV. (This would be a subset of all females with HPV.)
3) Those that develop cervical cancer are *twice* as likely as not to be smokers. (This would be a subset of all females with cervical cancer.)
4) It is noted in the linked article that “things that inhibit the immune system” (such as other forms of VD and smoking), increase the risk of developing cervical cancer, in women that have HPV.
Thus, a female with HPV + being a smoker = twice the risk of a female with HPV who is not a smoker.
My statement still stands, as the quote from your source that I quoted did not say what you are saying. The implication of that quote is that smoking causes cervical cancer, something that was dis proven years ago, but the anti-smoker industry continues to promote anyway.
your explanation is much more legitimate reasoning that goes beyond the standard canard that smoking causes STDs and hangnails.
