To HPV or not to HPV: The controversial vaccine
It’s a gut wrenching decision each of us with daughters must face. Do we vaccinate our daughters with the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine or not. Because behind the massive advertising/PR campaign and the push to mandate the drug for all girls as young as 9–there is a dark side to this vaccination, which can result in side effects like brain injury, paralysis and death.
And where are the long term studies showing that this drug will ultimately do more good than harm?
