Re: about hpv
Pickel's answer is great except that it doesn't leave room for all the other strains of HPV that don't cause either genital warts of cervical (or other) cancers. ALL warts are caused by HPV, regardless of where they are on the body, and you can be pretty sure that warts have been around for a long long time, lol.
I'm sure the virus has been around for ages, it's only the discovery of the connection between it and cervical cancer that is relatively new.
