FDA Sees Light, Approves HPV Vaccine

Atrocious what happens when corrupt politics take over science. HPV doesn't do us boys much harm - but 1 in 10,000 women infected with HPV (Human Papillomavirus) develop cervical cancer. Doesn't sound like much, until you realize that a great majority of the population is HPV+. 6,000 women die each year from cervical cancer.

This vaccine has been on the table for a *long* time now - and has been stalled by Republican politicians arguing that approving such a vaccine would promote promiscuity. Meanwhile, women are dying. It's clear where their priorities lie.
