Did you that seaweed extract called carrageanan can prevent HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) from entering human cells. HPV is an STD that is linked to cervical cancer and this study has been revealed by The National Cancer Institute. Carrageenan has been derived from red algae, which prevents HPV from entering and infecting the cells, according to researchers. It’s also used in in sexual lubricants as a thickner and they are working on developing the seaweed extract into an affordable gel that can stop the spread of HPV, which infects 50% of all women around the ages of 18 and 22.
The gel would compete with Gardasil, an HPV vaccine, which is almost 100% effective against the most perilous strains of HPV. All eleven and twelve year old girls were advised to be vaccinated with Gadasil by an influential U.S. advisory panel. Numerous people in developing nations can’t afford Gardasil because the three course vaccination costs $360.00. However, carrageenan somewhat affects herpes and HIV. What’s a thousand times more susceptible to seaweed extract is genital HPV. Carrageenan is used in baby formula as a thickner, which makes it safe to injest. Gardasil comes with adverse side effects such as pain, swelling, redness of the skin, itching and fever.
