Most 19 year old girls aren't sexual active, they just lie there motionless, like their mothers.

Cohort of 19 year old girls? I'm sure we can arrange something with a Phalanx of 19 year old fratboys. Then we will have a Legion of sexually active drunk kids.

Vaccinating priests would drop the rate adolescent male rectal cancer significantly as well.

Yes please: ZAZ: Occam's Disposable Razor

The 56% figure is in the article:However, a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, published in the June issue The Journal of Infectious Diseases, showed the vaccine had cut HPV infections by 56 per cent among teenage girls, since its introduction in 2006. (The reduction was among infections from the four strains of HPV the vaccine targets.)

Yeah, but that doesn't mean the vaccine is only 56% effective. That makes the rest of your math way off.


I think they have a vaccine for math.

Ok, I'll develop this a little bit.

I've been on various medications for the past couple of years. Upfront cost? 0.

As I posted in the other thread, the NHS got my mother through breast cancer. Upfront cost? 0.

Any of my friends who have to take prescription drugs regularly? Upfront cost? Well, it may cost a tenner or so in England and Wales, actually. Not sure about that.

And I'll repeat: The NHS is not perfect. But I log in to the innerwebz and so many Americans complain about how awful the healthcare they suffer is. They fund so many public projects with their taxes, but are unwilling to fund something that every American would benefit from.

Weirdos.


Spending money on health care might limit the number of foreign brown people we can kill.  Another reason is Jesus.

At least a 12 year old wiggles when they are trying to get away right?

bearded clamorer: Should have conducted the study in Arkansas.
Would have had 5 years of data by now.


They prefer to study the effects across a wide genetic pool.

Of course they aren't sexually active yet -- people have been waiting until their mid 20's to get married these days.

You know what, I'm not going to keep reading through paragraphs of some nutjob trying to justify giving teenage boys a cure to cervical cancer just to figure out what the hell subby is smoking.
