14 yo UK Girl Dies After HPV Vaccine

Headline sounds ominous doesn't it? It first came out monday that a 14 year old girl in England collapsed two hours after being given the HPV vaccine Cervarix. This is the shot that is suppose to prevent cervical cancer. The girl died not from the vaccine, but from a tumor in her chest. The timing of the shot and her death were coincidental. Nothing more. More than 1.4 million doses of the vaccine have been given out so far in the U.K. This was the first reported fatality and it is not related to the vaccine. Let me repeat, the death is not related to the vaccine. Almost 4000 women still die of cervical cancer in the U.S. every year. This vaccine targets the Human Papillo Virus that cause that cancer. It we can prevent the disease that will save millions if not billions in dollars. Just opposite of what the anti-vaxers want to hear. Of course there treatments are diet, herbs, acupuncture and homeopathy all treatments for sure, but ineffective and not proven. The medical industrial complex has figured out what caused the disease and has a way to prevent it. Lets hear it for science and the medical industrial complex.
