Genital Warts (HPV) is directly related to Cervical Cancer. HPV is present in the high 90%s of all Cervical Cancer cases. To say that everybody has it and it doesn't kill anyone is wrong. Even though only 13 of the 70 or so strains of HPV cause cervical cancer, and cervical cancer is one of the easiest cancers to treat, it still kills like 5000 women a year in the United States. If you have one strain you probably have others.
