On June 14, the Japanese Health Ministry issued a nationwide notice that the so-called ‘cervical cancer’ vaccinations should not be recommended for girls aged 12 to 16. This precautionary move followed reports of 1,968 cases of possible adverse effects including body pain, numbness and paralysis.
New research shows that since the cervical cancer vaccine has been introduced there has been a 90% drop in young women with genital warts caused by the Human Papilloma virus. Researchers claim that over the next few decades there will be similar reduction in rates of cervical cancer. However it has never been proven that the HPV vaccine prevents cervical cancer. There is no scientific evidence of any kind.
