HPV Vaccine Effectiveness Looks Promising

The vaccine for the human papilloma virus, HPV, may be more effective in stopping cervical cancer than health experts had hoped.

HPV infections can cause a precancerous condition called cervical dysplasia that can lead to cervical cancer.

A University of New Mexico study found dysplasia rates among teens dropped more dramatically than expected after the HPV vaccine was introduced in 2007.

Researchers say improving vaccination rates could help protect even more women from cervical cancer.

Right now, about half of all Oklahoma preteens are vaccinated for HPV.

    Stay away from al and I mean all vaccines’. They are soft kill devises. Substances found in Roundup weed killer are found in those so called beneficial vaccinations. People are being lied to. Do this: Upcspine, The specific chiropractic or Upper cervical heath centers. Two Good UCS only Chiropractors I talk about are Steven Duff in Windsor California and Richard Duff in San Francisco California. Use their care before you are bent over in pain or before a doctor says you have this or that.
