I saw a blurb on the news this morning talking about vaccinating boys for HPV, as it is connected to Head and Neck Cancers. The word is getting out!! Yippee!!

Just saw it also...says that basically everyone has a 50/50 chance of havinf been exposed during their lifetime, percentages decrease with age, and most immune systems fight it off.

Glad they are starting to realize there is a connection between HPV and H&N Cancers in men and women....
