So it got me to thinking. What are the odds of getting cervical cancer, and Gardasil is the only thing that vaccinates them? How much is the government paying them for that crap? Why endanger the women?

But then again, it could be conspiracy theorist in me...

2. More than 10,000 cases diagnosed per year
And 4,000 deaths a year.

Are those big enough odds for you?

All right. I'm convinced. I think Garadsil may be a choice for women who needs it.

7. I have a father who has lymphoma
I totally blanked out for a minute watching that commercial. He's finished with his two-stage chemo treatment before stem cell replacement, which will happen in about 3 weeks. We're in it for the long haul. I was stupid for a minute

8. more people die of the flu every year than cervical cancer
Edited on Sat Jan-26-08 04:30 AM by notadmblnd
there are approx 200 types of the hpv virus gardisil only helps to prevent cancer caused by 4 types. The other problem with it is.. no one knows the duration of the effectiveness of the vaccine or whether or not a woman will need booster shots. There has not been enough time for them to study the long term affects and there have been reported deaths. I would not choose this vaccine for my daughter at this time..
