Every 2 minutes a woman dies of cervical cancer somewhere in the world.
Approximately 20 million Americans are infected with Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
Cervical Cancer is the second most common cancer in women.
Approximately 5.5 million people will contract HPV each year.
There are more than 40 HPV types that can infect the genital areas of males and females.
Each year, about 12,000 women get cervical cancer in the U.S.
Papillomatosis becomes a herd problem when a large group of young, susceptible cattle become infected.
A horse that has even one lesion, is liable to the disease for life.
Sarcoids multiply over the summer and grow over the winter.
You should keep cattle with warts away from all horses to prevent Sarcoid development.
The simplest method of prevention is to separate infected animals from healthy animals.
It is important to minimize the use of equipment, feeders, waters, etc. that come into contact with healthy and unhealthy animals.
Sarcoids can develop in all equid species including the Horse, Donkey, Mule, Zebra, and Przewalksi Horse.
