(NaturalNews) The panel of experts that advises the CDC regarding vaccines has recommended that all boys 11 years and older get vaccinated with Merck’s controversial Gardisil in order to prevent the spread of the human papillomavirus. Parents all over the nation are up in arms, saying a mandatory vaccine is crossing over into lifestyle choices, because HPV is sexually transmitted, and is not a “walking contagious” disease like mumps and measles.
The absurdity of the whole issue is that without the vaccine, most humans create enough antibodies naturally to defeat papillomavirus within 2 years. Plus, much like the flu shot, it’s only a shot in the dark because it only contains 2 or 3 of a dozen or more strains. For males in the United States, only about 7,000 cases each year are tied to those strains.
