HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) is a sexually transmitted infection that affects adults AND youth (boys and girls).
HPV is a health awareness topic explored in my sophomore novel, My Body Is Calling (MBIC). My Body Is Calling examines the health consequences of enjoying too much of a good thing and ignoring our body when it's calling for medical attention.
EXCERPT: HPV is highly contagious, over 5 million cases are reported every year. There are more than 40 HPV types that can infect the male and female genital areas. HPV can also infect the mouth and throat. Most people who become infected with HPV do not know they have it. The virus can be passed on to a partner during sex. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), most people with HPV never develop symptoms or health problems.
Currently, there is no cure for HPV.
According to article (link below) Children in 7th grade will be forcibly injected with HPV vaccine if they wish to remain in public school, the Allegheny County Health Department in Pittsburgh, PA, is considering administering a countywide MANDATE to require all 7th grade girls and boys to receive the HPV vaccine before receiving admittance into school for the 2017–18 school year.
OF COURSE THERE'S A "PHARMACEUTICAL" POLITICAL ANGLE TO THIS CONTROVERSIAL PROPOSED MANDATE. The article states, the problem doesn’t only lie in the fact that county officials are attempting to forcibly administer Big Pharma vaccines to the public, but that they’re attempting to administer arguably the most controversial of all vaccines to children: GARDASIL. According to Vaccine Impact report: ovarian failure, premature menopause, and/or amenorrhea are associated solely with Gardasil.
In closing, as a parent, I would not want my power of choosing what's in the best health interest of my child diluted down to powerless simply to appease politically driven pharmaceutical agendas.
