New Hampshire will offer free HPV immunizations. What a great way to prevent cancer!

isn’t that ‘a specific cancer’ ? so What a great way to prevent “name here” cancer.
?? or is my brain still on cleaning fluids?
yes. hpv causes cervical cancer. the vaccine, if it proves effective in the long term, should prevent only cervical cancer. yes, it’s only one, but one less cancer can’t be a bad thing.
“Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a vaccine that is highly effective in preventing infection with types 16 and 18, two “high-risk” HPVs that cause most (70 percent) cervical cancers, and types 6 and 11, which cause most (90 percent) genital warts (4).”

What she said.
On another forum I read, a specifically poly-related forum, people are lining up against this vaccine. The moderates claim hat the vaccine alters human DNA; the more hardcore deny that viruses and bacteria even cause disease to begin with–an idea which, for reasons I do not understand, is really gaining traction in the US today. For these people, all vaccinations of any kind are part of a plot by the medical community, in conspiracy with the government, to make money and “keep people sick.”
I kid you not. It’s kind of depressing, really.
what? you mean they are serious? *sigh*
Well, once Shelly and her colleagues succeed, there’ll be none of those morons in front of me in line.
you suddenly worried about getting cervical cancer? :)
Shelly’s meta-ing up a level or two. She’s trying to make death optional.
so i’m going to say, HEY that line should read’ cervical cancer’ to be more clear, so it doesn’t sound like all cancers could be cured by that shot.
Hey if it could be, then gayle and S and I could go back in time warp and get the shot and not have to deal with all that crap.
cancer free ! we hope recheck Thursday. :)
