Prior to Britain's introduction of HPV vaccination in 2008, cervical cancer rates had been trending sharply downward. In fact, between the late 1980s and mid-2000s, cervical cancer rates halved. Yet, public health agencies enthusiastically promoted HPV vaccination as the "best way to protect [young people] against certain types of cancer later in life."
Now, a steep 54% rise in cervical cancer in one of the very age groups that first received the vaccine and new data showing that cervical cancer rates are surging in British 25- to 29-year-olds, raises numerous questions about officials' inflated claims.
