Foiled again – probiotics clear HPV related cervical lesions



Holy Hormones Journal:

Merck & Co was celebrated at a pharma industry gala and received and award for creating a market out of thin air. They sure as hell did. Glad I blogged about the event – because the link  is now dead to the original source. Funny how that happens.

And it all comes down to a probiotic. I just found out in the last month that there are probiotics for vaginal bacteria which are different that gut bacteria and a probiotic aimed at the digestive tract. Assuming this maybe the case.  Let’s tell this to 50k or more girls who have been adversely injured by the vaccine.

Nutrition is always the best defense…. and did you know that synthetic hormones actually deplete the body of vital micronutrients needed to prevent cervical cancer. Yes, that is just I said. Synthetic hormone birth control can lead to the development of cervical cancer.

Probiotics enhance the clearance of human papillomavirus-related cervical lesions: a prospective controlled pilot study.

Probiotics have been proposed for a number of urogenital infectious conditions. In this study, we examine a possible effect on human papillomavirus (HPV)-related precancerous lesions in cervical cytology. We conducted a prospective controlled pilot study, in which 54 women with an HPV+low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion diagnosis in their PAP smear were followed for 6 months. The intervention group consumed a daily probiotic drink during the study period; the control group received no treatment, according to common care policy. Outcome measures were the control PAP smear and HPV status after 6 months. Probiotic users had a twice as high chance of clearance of cytological abnormalities (60 vs. 31%, P=0.05). HPV was cleared in 19% of control patients versus 29% of probiotic users (P=0.41). This exploratory pilot study suggests that the probiotic studied promotes the clearance of HPV-related cytological abnormalities. If confirmed, this would represent an entirely new option to manage cervical cancer precursors.
