Dr. Oz: 80% of Adults Have HPV
New studies suggest 80% of people have HPV before they reach the age of 50. And many times, HPV will go undiagnosed or lay dormant for years.
HPV affects 20 million people in the United States, and nearly all of these people get HPV through some form of contact, although it can also be contracted from heavy petting. It is a skin to skin disease. And 6 million more people are being diagnosed each year.
