+ - HPV Vaccine Recommended for Boys 1

Submitted by necro81
necro81 (917438) writes "An advisory committee to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will soon issue new recommendations that pre-adolescent boys be vaccinated against Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). The disease is sexually transmitted, endemic in the sexually active, can cause genital warts in both men and women, and is the primary cause of cervical cancer, which kills hundreds of thousands of women globally each year. The three-dose vaccination has been available for several years and already recommended for pre-adolescent girls. Vaccinating boys should further reduce transmission"

    Ahem... sorry in advance, cancer isn't something to joke about...

    but whereas anal and mouth cancer are obvious- the neck cancer paints the picture of an abnormally long appendage.

    Yes, I know- it's in the fluid... but still- the image I get in my head about the causing activity is humorous.

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.

Working...
