The biggest issues with this vaccination was the immense cost for relative little benefits, with potential negative side-effects.

We're talking about something that cost tens of millions of euro's. "but all the people it saves!". About 520 women are diagnosed with this form of cancer a year in this country. The vaccin IS NOT GUARENTEED. It reduced the chance of getting a certain virus, and this virus is the largest (but not the only!) thing to cause this form of cancer.

Also, the vaccin wears off! After 5 years, every women would have to be vaccinated again. It also only protects if you havent been sexually active to begin with.
So, a very expensive vaccin that made someone a ******* of money, that isnt by any stretch a reliable measure, that has to be periodically re-applied (costing even more money) to treat a form of cancer that is very rare!

That money could've been spend saving, and improving, many more lives then it ended up doing. Just saying.

Have you seen the commercial for the Guardia or whatever it is? It's the vaccine for HPV. One of the side-affects it said,"In some cases, sudden death was reported." Uh...what!?

I understand what you're saying, but I feel the vaccine is a little too new right now. Some of the side affects seem to outweigh the risk and it only protects against some of the viruses. I've seen some comments that say 80% to 90% but I've heard only 40%.

if they EVER made something that actually fought cancer, then where would hospitals get money from all the cancer treatment facilities, i agree that it might promote cancer

just like flu shots....i have NEVER had one, and every season when doctors bitch about 'this big bad super flu is coming, get your shot" i see people who got the shot, STILL get major colds and flu....while my normal immune system lets me walk away pretty much flu free

if they ever actually treated any kind of medical malady, where would repeat patients come from?

In developed countries, hospitals are there to help people, not make money.
User avatar #292 to #240 - konradkurze (05/22/2013) [-]
so EVERYONE who needs medical help gets it right....the hospitals apparently never turn away poor people or ones with bad credit?
and for the ones they do help....they like the keep them in longer than they need 'just to make sure' but otherwise keeping on billing them for staying

I had a brain tumor. The operation was free and I was released two weeks before normal.

Free?
wtf country do you live in? and how did that come free?
User avatar #296 to #295 - rainbowrush (05/22/2013) [-]
It was almost free. Parking space cost a ******* , unfortunately. I think it's bout $10-15 for a parking space every check-up once every 5 years.

I live in Norway.

We have the best economic system, but our politicians have ****** up our roads with all their games and we have the worst housing economy system in the world. It's getting better, tho.

you really think theres no money in curing cancer.

you sir, are a retard.

i honestly dont see why id try to explain myself, you can only be this stupid if you have refused to listen to anyone intelligent for your entire life.

just know that what you said made me laugh, and cry
User avatar #298 to #109 - konradkurze (05/22/2013) [-]
there would be money in curing cancer, yes, but to guarantee repeat business, they will induce cancer in people to create patients for the treatment

it's actually just a vaccine for about 80% of viruses which might cause uterus cancer not cancer itself
#110 to #96 - anonymous (05/22/2013) [-]
no its a vaccine for the one virus that causes 99.9% of the uterus neck cancers.

either get facts, or dont post. its really simple.
#118 to #110 - gisuar (05/22/2013) [-]
and that's the reason why you post as anon? there are at least two types of hpv (16 and 18) who are the reason for 70% of cervical cancer not just one.
#120 to #118 - anonymous (05/22/2013) [-]
... there are two ways to get cancer down there.

natural mutation of the cells, and the hpv's
hpv's cause 99,9%, natural mutation is the 0,1% left remaining.

also, why would it matter under what name i post if were talking about science.
#122 to #120 - gisuar (05/22/2013) [-]
the vaccine still doesn't work against every hpv out there just those two and not one like you said and those are "just" causing 70% (well not 80%) of cervical cancer

People like you confuse and annoy the **** out of me.

To be fair the vaccine doesn't "fight" cancer it simply lessens the chance of you contracting it.
You could just be lucky with a strong immune system, for all I know you exercise daily, eat a healthy diet. Not everyone does that and the vaccine is for those people or simply as backup.

Then again I have no goddamn clue how they made a "vaccine" for cancer, last I checked cancer was uncontrolled cell growth due to cell mutations in the DNA and a vaccine was a weaker version of a virus that allowed the immune system to detect and remember the virus so when the real deal comes it can deal with it quicker thus you don't feel sick and get over it quicker.

Also there are other diseases to cure, like STDs and AIDs, I'm sure they'll get their money from somewhere.
User avatar #76 to #75 - konradkurze (05/22/2013) [-]
i didnt say they have made a vaccine for cancer, im implying they wont because its one of the many ailments they want people to get and pay for medical treatment to fight it

they have a medication for AIDS, but it doesnt cure it, it just allows the infected to stay alive despite the disease....meaning they get to live as long as they can buy the meds - aka ongoing profit to the medical industry
