    So that's why I've been seeing more and more commercials on television about this HPV causing cervical cancer. I don't trust this. Maybe I'm paranoid when it comes to the CDC and pharmaceutical companies but how do we know this won't sterilize women or that this anti-virus medication won't be used disproportionately against Black women versus women of other races? How many STD's are there? Good grief....

    More than you can imagine...everytime I sit in an seminar on STDs, I hear about one I didn't know about before.
