Unsafe Sex More Common in Women Over 20; CBCD Reviews Study
Industry: Health & Fitness
Does the evidence suggest that sex is like other risky behaviors, where more practice means less caution ? CBCD reviews the evidence and suggests two antiviral remedies.

Dr. Henchion wrote in an Irish study that “Adults aged 20 and over are more likely to have had less comprehensive sex education compared to their younger peers and may be more likely to engage in unsafe sex.” (1) The authors of the study propose two possible explanations for this fact. “Is it that the safe sex message is so strongly communicated in schools that young people start out by taking it seriously and then once they become accustomed to sex, they become more blasé about contraception? Or is it that older people aren’t as well educated in sexual matters?” (1) The CBCD believes that the authors of the study report a known tendency where individuals let down their guard when engaging in repetitive risky behaviors.
According to this study, the number of people who engage in unsafe sex practices increases with age, which increases their chances of infection with a virus, such as HPV.
The human papillomavirus (HPV) is the cause of conditions like vulvar and vaginal warts. These warts are a problem since they often have health consequences, they have no “cure”, and they carry a strong social stigma.
“Vaginal warts, more commonly known as genital warts, are located on or around the genitals and can extend to the rectal area of the body … their appearance is flesh toned to grayish in color and they protrude from the normal surface of the skin like a welt. Most often people affected are in the age range of 17-33 years old. They are highly contagious …vaginal warts can occur several years after contact. In most cases however, the genital warts appear about three months after the sexual encounter.” (2)
The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that women 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 Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR formula is effective against the HPV 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…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)
Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR 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, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.
Planned Parenthood says that “You may find genital warts to be unpleasant or mildly uncomfortable, but they are not dangerous. They can, however, cause sores and bleeding – which can increase your risk of HIV infection.” (4) Moreover, “It’s not unusual to have more than one HPV infection at a time. And warts may be a sign of infection from more serious types of HPV.”
What Treatments are Available that Target HPV?
“There are no drugs approved against the HPV. Current treatments include procedures, such as cryotherapy, conization, and the Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP). These procedures use liquid nitrogen, a surgical knife (scalpel), a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, or electrical current to remove the abnormal growths caused by the HPV. These growths include cells that harbor the active virus. The procedures do not target cells with the latent virus. Since they do not remove the latent virus, these procedures only produce a temporary remission.” (3) In contrast, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR were designed to target the latent HPV.

The center’s mission is to advance the research on the biology of chronic disease and to accelerate the discovery of a cure for these diseases. The CBCD first published Dr. Hanan Polansky’s highly acclaimed “Purple” book, entitled “Microcompetition with Foreign DNA and the Origin of Chronic Disease” in 2003. In this book, he explains how foreign DNA fragments can cause many major diseases. The book has been read by more than 5,000 scientists around the world, and has been reviewed in more than 20 leading scientific journals.
