Gardasil: 10 Things You Might Not Know
There's an interesting post over at Evil Slutopia called "10 Things You Might Not Know About Gardasil." The introductory paragraph reads:
You might have noticed recently that the makers of the new HPV vaccine Gardasil really really really want you to try their product. I think the TV commercials are running about every 7.5 seconds. I admit that I tend to be pretty skeptical of the whole women’s health “industry”, so after seeing the ads about five million times, I decided to do some research.
I recommend reading the post and using the items as a jumping off point for your own research. As the author of the article says:
Don't get this vaccine just because your doctor/mom/sister/friend/a perky TV commercial told you to. But don’t not get it just because some chicks with a blog say that they aren’t going to. It’s your health, your decision. Do your own research and accept no guilt trips.
I couldn't have said it better myself!
