I'd be curious to know just how many 45 y/o virgins we have, anyway!

Anytime you hear the words "double the market size", I hope that any reasonable person would consider that the actions being contemplated don't necessarily have the interest of public health in mind.

In my mind - it's well obvious - but I don't think many stop to think about it.

I think that offering Gardasil to girls/women aged 9 - 26 years makes sense.


If it was subsidised here I would definately take my girls at some stage for this vaccine.


The extended age groups on the other hand just sounds like a money making scheme. One that stands to be highly profitable for the company that is marketing the vaccine.

I'll re-post this, it was from a different thread.

"It is the persistent infection, not the virus, that determines the cancer risk". (Sources: FDA document, PDF format


*** This is a very interesting area for me.

Why does it make sense?

you don't have to be a virgin to get it and are you saying that all women who've had sex have been exposed? even when they only man they've had sex with is their husband? sorry but i had been married for almost 2 years and was tested and was negative for the hpv virus. i assume, though, that some people see a problem in trying to not die of cancer.

I'm not sure what you mean. I don't recall saying that those that weren't virgins wouldn't get it. Read the article from Dr. Harper (inventor of Gardasil) to understand. Gardasil (HPV - dubbed Help Pay for Vioxx) is NOT a cancer vaccine (even the newer ads say that).
