Vinegar may easily detect cervical cancer

August 18, 2017

Cervical cancer is diagnosed in about 400,000 women in developing countries without Pap screening, and 80,000 women per year in countries with Pap screening, said Dr. Diane Harper, director of the Gynecologic Cancer Prevention Research Group at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

However Harper warns, ???Given the choice of no screening at all, and having this done once in a lifetime at the age of 35 years??¦ is preferable??¦This is not a procedure that has any validity to repeating multiple times for a woman or doing for a young woman who is still in childbearing years.  The sensitivity and specificity are very poor for repeat procedures.??? Anderson emphasized that the procedure is not a treatment for cervical cancer, only a specific way to screen. ???It??™s not the vinegar that is treating the problem and could falsely lead women to think that if they somehow douche with vinegar, they are not going to get cervix cancer,??? said Anderson.  ???Although I don??™t think this has ever been directly tested as a treatment, I doubt nothing could be further from the truth.???

???The bottom line is cervical cancer can be prevented in most women,??? said Einstein. ???So any screening is better than no screening.???
