NIAGARA FALLS — A few years back I wrote an article that questioned the effectiveness and potentially exposed some risks associated with the Swine flu vaccine.
I was slammed with both positive and negative emails. I am now about to raise some concerns about another vaccine in hopes of educating you, not causing anxiety.
For many young girls, and now boys, the American Medical Association and other medical organizations are recommending vaccination with the Gardasil (or similar) vaccine.
Gardasil is a vaccine that supposedly helps prevent 4 types of HPV (human papillomavirus), 2 of which have been linked to cervical cancer and 2 types that are associated with genital warts.
What most people do not know is that there are more than 100 various strains of HPV.
First I need to give you some information on HPV before I can argue my case against the Gardasil vaccine.
