HPV vaccines and cancer prevention, science versus activism

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

 

Quote:
Abstract 
The rationale behind current worldwide human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination programs 
starts from two basic premises, 1) that HPV vaccines will prevent cervical cancers and save 
lives and, 2) have no risk of serious side effects. Therefore, efforts should be made to get as 
many pre-adolescent girls vaccinated in order to decrease the  burden of cervical cancer. 
Careful analysis of HPV vaccine pre- and post-licensure data shows however that both of 
these premises are at odds with factual evidence and are largely derived from significant 
misinterpretation of available data.

Interesting. Thanks. So glad I never got this as it wasn't around when I was younger :)

Not only are they vaccinating girls but they have the boys on the agenda too now. Here in Germany it is even recommended for women past 30y although that would be off-label use.
