This is a quote from a post on Mothering.comn forums:
FROM THE CDC:
- Most women who develop invasive cervical cancer have not had regular cervical cancer screening.
- Cervical cancer is an uncommon consequence of HPV infection in women, especially if they are screened for cancer regularly with Pap tests and have appropriate follow-up of abnormalities.
- But over the last 40 years, widespread cervical cancer screening using the Pap test and treatment of pre-cancerous cervical abnormalities have resulted in a marked reduction in the incidence of and mortality due to cervical cancer in the U.S. (70%)
Below is a link to the Vaccine Information Statement (VIS), which providers are federally mandated to hand out to the vaccinee or vaccinee's parent prior to each dose of Gardasil. Three (3) doses make up the series.
"PAP SMEAR" IS NOT MENTIONED ANYWHERE ON THE VIS.
The VIS is literally the beginning and end of vaccine "research" for most individuals . . . and the CDC knows this. These VIS handouts are written and designed for the sole purpose of manipulating.
