New HPV Vaccine

by

As Always we do not promote or discourage the use of vaccines. We do advocate for education and knowledge. It is your body your choice

 

Gardasil 9 is the newest installment in the world of HPV. I wanted to just highlight a few things from the original article

this new vaccine, Gardasil 9, was tested on more than 14,000 women between the ages of 16 to 26. Because an effective vaccine already exists against HPV, it was considered unethical to compare the new vaccine against a placebo, so the study used the earlier Gardasil instead…

 

and this bitGiven that the new virus contains more bits of virus, side-effects were more common in those given Gardasil 9, but these were generally minor, such as pain at the injection site.”

AIDS/HIV vs HPV reality check

by

AIDS/HIV

–          Virus

–          Treatable

–          Passible through body fluids

–          Preventable from being passed on from mother to child

–          Reportable illness

–          Does not kill you directly but what it allows to come into your body does

  • Cancers
  • Colds
  • Other common illness that a “normal” immune system could fight off

–          Testing available for both MEN and women

–          Blood banks screen for this virus from donors

–          Testing can and is readily free in many locations

–          Education is done by the state and encouraged by the government

–          It is spoken about

 

HPV

–          Virus

–          Not treatable

–          Not reportable

–          Nothing to prevent mothers from transmitting this to children

–          Vaccine that only protects you against 2  strands related to cancer (there are over 40  that we know of

–          No FDA approved testing for men

–          Testing for women is a pap smear (planned parenthood will work with you if you don’t have insurance)

–          Blood banks do not screen for this virus

–          Doesn’t directly kill you but what is causes can

  • Cancer(S)
  • New research is looking into other related illness too that may be linked to HPV

–          transmitted through kissing

–          80% of us have HPV and that is why they do not consider it a reportable illness.

Questions? Good. Start asking.

year of the paperwork

by

For everyone else in the world this is going to be the year of the Dragon for me? The year of paperwork… When you start telling people you’re going to do a non-profit and they tell you it is a lot of work warning! They do not just mean “work” they mean paper work, lots and lots of paper work.

 

=:p ah well that’s life isn’t it?
