There are several key nutrients that have been studied in relation to HPV, and folic acid is one of them.

- A 2016 case control study by Zhao et al that included 271 controls and 214 women with both high and low grade HPV lesions, found that low blood folate levels in the women was coupled with a higher risk of cervical cancer from HPV.
