Show Notes

HPV is a tiny virus that has been with us forever-literally since the time of dinosaurs! (4:15)

It literally bounces around on skin.  It does not live in blood or other bodily fluids (5:53)

What are the avenues of transmission for HPV?  Hint: it’s not only our sexual organs (06:04)

It’s definitely a survivor.  The way  it infects the skin cells allows it to hide from the immune system (06:54)
