Can I get on my soapbox here? It has been proven in recent studies that a majority of cervical cancer is caused by HPV, the Human Papilloma Virus. A virus that is spread through sexual intercouse. A virus for which there is currently a vaccination. A vaccination that has been shown in testing to be 100% effective. Unfortunately, there are people at work in our society who want to deny this vaccination to young women on the basis that it will encourage promiscuity among teenagers. I don't think that anyone should have to pay the price of death for having bad judgement in their teen years. (How many of us barely made it out of our teens alive as it is?)
So please order this kit. Make a little bracelet, and while you are at it, send your congressperson or senator an email encourage them to support the speedy approval of the HPV vaccine.
Here is some info.
