Years ago it would have been unthinkable that a virus could cause cancer, and that we could develop a vaccine that protected a person from the virus (and the cancer).   This was a huge step that largely remains unappreciated. 
 
What does that mean +Sai Prasanth R ? Please explain :) I personally do not believe in HPV vaccines as there are so many strains of HPV and only a few of them lead to cervical cancer which I have. The approach here in Canada to the vaccine is a one-size-fits-all kind of deal.They have no clue what's in them.So why would any woman get the vaccine if in fact it does NOT protect against ALL strains?
