Warts cause cancer[edit]

The phrase "A few papilloma viruses are known to cause cervical cancer" (last sentence @ introduction) is misleading unless the papilloma virus that causes warts is known to also cause some kind of cervical cancer. The article is not about VHP.

Cannabis Oil as treatment[edit]

This was not mentioned but I believe that abnormal growth of cells can be countered with CBD as described by Rick Simpson of Canada see Run from the Cure. While I have no citation for it, and with current prohibitions and lack of government studies, this could be a cure that is overlooked. Plants have been used to cure many things throughout history and CBD seems to work for some skin cancer, so why not warts?

Formula for Wortrol proprietary remedy removed from main page.[edit]


[podophyllum resin I.P.'66 (20% w/v), benzoin I.P. (10% w/v), aloes I.P. (2% w/v), isopropyl alcohol I.P. to make (100% v/v)]

As its inclusion was merely an ad for Wortrol. A Google search for "podophyllum resin I.P.'66" turns up Wortrol and this patent:

Pharmaceutical Compositions for the Treatment of Warts

US 20110117222 A1

Inclusion seems to have been just sales for a proprietary bright idea with no science to back it up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 9 February 2014 22:10 (UTC)
