In brief: May not affect you

The basics. There are at least 2 that can make a woman sterile & 7 strains of one type that are associated with cervical, anal and throat cancer. One is a big nuscience to most but can cause Swiss cheese like destruction to the brain of your newborn.
One can make you go mad (Hitler) and hide in your system for life. At least 4 that can be treated but remain in your system for life or kill you.
