Vinegar to detect Cervical Cancer: Study

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer caused in women. It is mostly caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. It is more observed as sexually transmitted disease but tobacco and some drugs can cause cervical cancer too. 

Cervical cancer vinegar
Every year about 73,000 women die from cervical cancer in the world. A study in India found a simple and inexpensive vinegar test could prevent the risk of these deaths by a great number. The glorifying results about cervical cancer were found in a 15 year research study led by professor Dr. Surendra Shastri at Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai. 

Cervical cancer is usually detected by Pap smear test in most developed countries. In rural India and in many under developed countries the lack of infrastructure and costs to perform the screening tests make it difficult to find the cancers in early stages. Cervical cancer is one of the cancers that is often diagnosed late with a low survival rate. The Vinegar test is the simple process to overcome these problems.  A local health care worker or primary trained health person swab the cervix with vinegar, which causes abnormal cells to turn white. In a minute by inspecting the cervix with a bright light the result is revealed. It is super simple and also as effective as Pap smear

Dr. Surendra Shastri  hope the amazing results of this study could reduce the cervical cancer deaths in India and other countries.
