Gardasil
Is everyone missing the point?

This vaccination program has nothing to do with promiscuity or religion or even a cure for cancer.

Acoording to the Gardasil.com website:
It may be effective against 2 strains (out of over 100) of a virus that may lead to cancer and 2 strains that may lead to warts.

" GARDASIL may not fully protect everyone, and does not prevent all types of cervical cancer, so itís important to continue routine cervical cancer screenings. GARDASIL will not protect against diseases caused by other HPV types or against diseases not caused by HPV."

High-risk HPV infections that persist cause cancer when other factors are also present (for example, having a stressed or compromised immune system, poor nutrition or smoking).

Does your 9-year old daughter have a atressed immune system?
Is she malnourished?
Does she smoke?

Gardasil is not free. Last I read, it costs $375 to $600 per dose. I hope that includes all 3 shots of the series but I'm not sure.

Would you feel that it's a bargain if you had to pay for it out of your own pocket? Well, guess what! If it's a legislated shot, you will pay for it anyway only your neighbour will be forced to chip in.

Can you imagine the drug pushers rubbing their hands in glee at the prospect of legislated $600 shots for every 9-year old girl in North America?? and any paniced, older women they can snag in the process?

There are about 2,000,000 nine-year old girls in the US
and about 200,000 in Canada

We're talking $1,320,000,000.- here. That's a Billion plus bucks.
If you can't image that amount of money ( I can't ), think 15 tons of $100 bills.
- and they're pushing into Europe for more suckers.

Personally, if we were talking $10 for a shot, I'd consider it but probably decide against it until more optimistic data become available.

If you truly care about the well being of your children, you should find a few minutes to check out the subject yourself and, if you have a caring doctor, ask him/her.

Google will give you all kinds of information with the search term:
hpv gardisil

Of course if you're much too busy and it feels good to permit complicated stuff like this to be decided by the snake oil hawkers, demand all the "free" shots you can get for yourself and your precious offspring.
If the side effects don't bother her, it shouldn't hurt anything except taxpayer's wallet.

And then we're paniced by the media about Sars, Bird flu and Swine flu.
The legal drug pushers are rubbing their hands in glee and laughing all the way to the bank.
