I read about 4 or 5 year ago that there was a very large increase in head, neck and throat cancers due to HPV infection.

Fortunately, there IS a vaccine available to prevent HPV. I urge EVERYBODY who is sexually active or who will become sexually active, to get the HPV vaccine.

As far as I know, the HPV is the ONLY VD that there is an effective vaccine for.

I read that film critic Roger Ebert was notorious for picking up hookers and eating them out years ago. He had to have much of his jaw removed and later died after developing a type of oral cancer, 25% of which are caused by a strain of HPV. So this may have been how he caught HPV.

The so called HPV vaccine may be worse than the o.5% chance of cancer induced HPV. The "vaccine" only claims to prevent 4 or the 40 strains of HPV.

Remember that ten times as many people died from the SV-40 contamination (causes soft tissue cancers) of the polio virus than actual polio. Also, SV-40 is sexually transmitted as well as being passed on from mother to child.

Be extremely careful of new drugs and vaccines. Get all the facts before making a huge mistake.
